Hello,

Our company is moving to a new location temporarily and we will be looking to do wireless for our network instead of wired. We have a dell power edge 2900 server running windows SBS 2008 and a switch with more than enough ports for what we need. What i need to know is how exactly to do the wireless and what hardware would work best for us. We plan to have approximately 45 computers hooked into the server and have some wired but for the most part wireless. Also we would want to look into advanced security options for our wireless set up as we will be in the same building as a few other companies.

Thanks ahead of time.

That looks like an illegitimate spam site to me.
Or like better information can be found from a google search... What is that site's purpose?

Any one?


Why don't you sit down with your network admin, make plan, draw out your new network structure?

You should think of how to put your network operation back up before thinking of going wireless entirely unless your company doesn't mind losing their business for days. Never ever rely only on wireless cause you will never know what happen.

I would say get your server back up first thing. Make sure it operates at the new site. Business is back to normal then think about convergence later.

Setup WLAN is a simple task if you have everything in place not to mention how and where you plan to place your wireless access point at, and also plan for future expansion as well
-Access to internet
-A working switch
-A router running latest firmware (upgrade to DD-WRT if you're geek enough)
-Proper instruction on how to work around on the router

Hope that helps.

Hi,
Have a look at the new Dlink DSR-1000n. i have just bought one, full of security features and vpn. a little tricky to setup but easier than most other routers. good speeds.
