How do I Share ISDN over a wireless netw

By gm ·
I currently have wired network consisting of 3 desktops and 2 laptops. They all share an internet connection via ISDN.

I am thinking about changing over to a wireless network but will I still be able to share the ISDN internet connection?

If so how would I do this. I dont mind if the ISDN connction has to go directly to one computer on the network, the important thing is that everyone will have internet access over the ISDN

Assuming that your current ISDN router uses ethernet to connet to your clients, it's simple; connect a WLAN Access Point up to your hub/switch, set up your PCs with their client adapters and, assuming that you have the right coverage, the Wireless provides a Layer-2 connection (i.e. think about it being like a wire with a bridge attached. You'll need to decide on which WLAN standard you want to use, between 802.11b and g (2.4 GHz) and 802.11a. b is the most mature but runs at 11Mb/S max. g and a will both go up to 54 Mb/S but over reduced distances.

Remember to secure the wireless appropriately (i.e. 128bit WEP as the barest minimum!)

Good luck,

SMC has a router hub that has an rs232 connection that will control any external modem.
