    Adding wireless to my network


    Hi,

    i've been recently asked to get a wireless network running at home.
    I already have a wired (100Mbps) network.
    What I want to know is what I have to do to add wireless to my network.
    What do I have to install (besides the AP) and what should I add to iptables in my gateway/router box??

    Code:
    My current network:
    One box as Gateway and router, with 2 eth interfaces.
    eth0 - cable modem
    eth1 - hub
    static ips on all the other computers.
    routing by iptables script.
    Thnx.

    It depends on how secure you want it. I had a Netgear WGR614v1 as my hub/WAP which gave me immediate network access. I configured the WAN port as 192.168.2.2 and my eth1 port on the router as 192.168.2.1.

    After it went tango-uniform, I bought an Apple Extreme. I'm in the process of building a new router and intend in it having three interfaces:

    eth0 - cable modem (firewalled)
    eth1 - linksys router
    eth2 - apple extreme (firewalled)

    My Powerbook will set up a vpn connection to the WAP which should let me secure my gateway from wardrivers. Not that it's all that big a deal.
