Wireless LAN

By graemeduncan ·
Does anyone know if you can combine a wireless with a cat5 LAN?

I have a 40 user cat5 LAN but due to the number of occassions we will need to move the users with in our building it would not make sense to cable it hence my question.

Yes. You can combine cat5 and wireless. We use wireless for the laptops in our organization so we can move around the building without having to worry about finding a connection. We used a fairly inexpensive solution from www.sohoware.com.

Yes you can. Get a wireless access point, connect it to the hub or to a place that is within the wireless distance parameters, you may need more than one, and then get some wireless NICs.
