I need some help to design my wireless lan...
I have 3 computers, and my neighbor another 2.
Her 2 are running XP.
at least one of mine will be running Linux.
the oldest one I have (p1 133mhz) I want to use as router/firewall for the network.
I want it to be connected on ethernet to cable modem, and on second ethernet to Access Point.
The other 4 will have pci wi-fi card or usb card. all must be compatible for b/g networks.
The gateway/router/firewall will run Linux distro called SmoothWall2 Express. its perfect for it. problem is, that it doesn't support wireless natively. thats why I was told to connect AP to it, and have it share i-net to all other 4 comps.
I also need it to make lan for those 4 comps, and not only share i-net.
I basically would like to go for Linksys/D-Link based system.
but I want it to be good quality, and not too expensive at the same time..
Would this design work? do I miss any components?
any ideas/suggesttions would be very much welcome!!
Thanks a lot.
