Re: 802.11b/g AO40 qrm?



Hasan,
I have a WAP-11 and linksys card for my laptop, as well as a usb transceiver
in use at the neighbors house (She piggybacks on my DSL line). Set them to
the highest channel and you should have no problems. The WAP-11 is fine,
although I am about to replace the linksys pc card with an Orinoco so I can
hook up an external directional antenna.

It  may not be a problem in IA or rural areas, but be careful...set up the
WEP, and limit sharing hard drives and such, or be prepared to share what
you have on your PC with everyone who looks for it .

73, Drew KO4MA
