Management has OK'd the use of wireless in our office, IF it is outside the firewall (DUH!) and requires authentication.
So here is what I have:
A small 486 notebook
A wired PCMCIA 10/100 Nic
A 250mW WiFi Nic and small Omni antenna.
What I need is a step by step (1...2...3...) guide and the appropriate software to make this into a WAP. I understand that there will probably be kernel rebuilds and such, that is why I am asking for a step by step guide, because I don't do kernels all that well.
What else do I need? The users all have a VPN client on their notebooks for home use, so this is just a logical extension.
