And since I've been doing that since my amiga/dialup  days, I can testify 
that it works well.  One of the smartest dogs I ever knew was half 
coyote, so this has been the coyote.den since the late 90's. Nice 
private little now 8 machine network when everything is running, and as 
long as I turn the radios off, nobody bothers me.  And vice-versa.  
Seems no one has setup a radio login yet a smart phone can't crack in 30 
seconds or less.
