Hi, we have a server running win2k server edition.  The network, for the server, is hardwired and we'd like to switch it to wireless.  Could someone give me a general guideline about what steps need to be taken (software and hardware) to accomplish this?


Thank you very much

my advice...don't! avoid using wireless unless it is neccesary, there are many pitfalls with wireless in a domain environment such as link speeds and initial connections, if you have a wired setup keep it.

if that doesnt work for you

i reiterate that you will have many problems with wireless as your main network with a domain...... we have an access point for guest users and thats it
