Adding wireless to my network
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??
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.
Re: Adding wireless to my network
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.

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.
