related to this, I've been trying to fix a problem for auditorium
presntations that's been getting worse and worse...
In the Good Old Daze of, say, a year ago.... the lecturer could
use a system hooked up through standard 802.11 (WiFi) to the
ethernet'ed base station in the back of the room.
Nowadays, with just about everyone carrying a WiFi client,
and with more and more using Mi-Fi's or similar products,
the intereference level in the room is about as dense as
the hot air from DC.
I was able to get some breathing room by putting in a second AP,
with the first one "open" on channel 1, with an SSID
of "guest", and the lecturer using a protected unit
on ch 11. But with the Mi_Fi's, etc., that's going to
be history pretty soon.
I'd love to find suggestions for another matched pair
of AP and client (that is, a base station and a box
I can attach to the computer) that uses some other set
of frequencies all together, shirley. If they're low
powered and/or FCC licensed by the manufactuerer, they
should be legal and adequate.
That way I'd put the AP next to the ethernet hub, and
plug the client into the computer.
As this is for a semi commercial use, price (within reason)
isn't critical. Reliability and simpicty,, and ability
to work with OS's other than W*****s, is the key.
Any suggestions? I've been running into far too much misc.
and useless info when searching.
