Limit Login Attempts is a great plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/limit-login-attempts/

The changelog shows multisite support being added a few releases back. I haven’t had any problems with it on my multisite install.

I Second that, limit login Attempts is a must have plugin.

Also you can have your host add repeat offenders to their firewall because unfortunately, they will keep coming back.

Also, now that WordPress allows you to specify a username besides “admin”, that’s a wise thing to change too ;)
