Wireless Networking Security
Posted on 2005-05-06
I have a client that wants to setup a wireless hotspot in his motel to allow internet access to his guests, working off his existing DSL connection. What are the necessary components (hardware/software) to support up to 50 simultaneous clients (its highly unlikely that he would ever have 50 clients connected at once but it could happen), with ONLY internet access, and prevents malicious user from doing anything destructive in the environment? I was thinking about connecting a switch to the DSL modem/router and connecting five wireless access points (placed around the motel to ensure the least amount of dead spots) to the switch. I am not really sure what to do about security issues though.
