Proposed Network Topology

2 devices per client installation: the wge101 which is just a wireless-ethernet bridge which will have the external antenna connected to it for connectivity back to our network. The WRT54g for handling the routing and internal wireless and wired (with the original little antennae on so they won’t be visible on our external network).

This setup will make installation costs of a node – including a rigger and cable + antennae – around £250 max!

    do you mean 2 AP’s per client installation? !!

    its an ap (which handles the routing and internal wireless + wired) and a client device which connects them back to our network. But yes 2 wireless bits of hardware

    ack! that sounds like a really expensive solution, you need to spell out what the problem is with our current solution. I know you’ve explained the "ghosting" problem before to me verbally, but i didn’t really take it in. can you write something up about what is wrong with the current topology, with links and stuff? Just half a page will do.

    this is the proposed topology.

    we need some literature on the issues cuncerning the current network
