I have yet to click on the link provided, it took me twenty
minutes to find it in my stack of e-mails. Thank You for providing
the link, it was nice thing to do.
Today is the day to spend my time on doing the wireless, so
far I have found a wireless Linux driver on Sourceforge called
Spectrum24, the OS recognized the PCMCIA to PCI adapter, Maybe no
driver was on the machine.
Got lost for a few days attempting a kernel upgrade, call it
a learning experience, not yet successful. Thankfully the server
I am interested in any other links or hints on wireless.
Wired reported today a presidential commission is calling
wireless a threat to national security. My bet is this is a shot by
the big companies to regulate sharing bandwidth.
This brings up security (again), over and above WEP which
security is easier to impliment in Linux to Macintosh. I have only
tempory access to this Mac. One other choice is to provide a Linux
box as a wireless client, and server to the Mac By way of a hard line
10/100. I do have an "extra" Linux box with a PCMCIA card.
Comments, advise recomendations welcome.
