Re: [school-discuss] Wireless network ambulance for classrooms w/o wired network connectivity

This was my thinking, especially since we were going to have print servers in each class, also connected to the router. I also believe in most cases, we'll be able to use 802.11g, hence the bandwidth issue may not surface. For longer distance links, we can either use higher gain antennas to get the bandwidth, or consider the FreeNX solution. Thanks again to all for the insights on issues relating to wireless links with thin client networks. Daniel

By the way, I would recommend checking on what wireless cards might be
supported by etherboot if you are going to be booting thin clients over
a wireless network.  This wouldn't be an issue if you use a wireless
router in the non-wired classroom to bridge to an AP on the wired
network.  That way all of your clients can be wired to the router.
I suspect this might also help with wireless traffic congestion,
since the router would be metering traffic over the radio.
