Right, but what hardware and software do you trust to run the router and how 
do you predict the MAC address?  There are several Respects Your Freedom wifi 
access points which might work.  Maybe you could white list your known MAC 
addresses and drop everything else, but then the Intel firmware might just 
use the MAC address you have whitelisted.  The only real solution is to 
disable the Management Engine or replace it's firmware with free software.  

In the mean time, logging traffic to spot odd packets is a great idea.  People 
should document and publish malicious traffic from their networks.
