As far as access points, i would like to get that to a point using orinoco
cards in little linux boxes running the hostAP drivers, but as of right
now, and for free, i'm sure i can manage an ap or two out of what i
already have around town. I would have to limit bandwidth, and possibly
run a transparent proxy so i can somewhat protect my network from people
like me and i'm sure many others on this list :)
Anyone here played with the HostAP drivers yet ? I got to see some really
interesting stuff with them up at Defcon this year.
