So cool. I’ve setup Networks and done my far share of Wireless as well but obviously not as technical as you are.

Sooooo, if you need any help and or if you ever come across a need to pull wire (I dislike it but have done that as well) just let me know.

But… I expect to learn something from you if I volunteer to help. I already know what I know, but not as much as what you know!!!


Thanks for the info and I kind of understand it.

Chris Des…

From the magic backpack comes the name of... Chris Giles!

Congratulations to Chris, it sounded like he already had big plans for it too. :)
Chris, contact Syed directly to work out the exchange?

WiFi: I met with Mr. Alvarez on Thursday night at the Addison location to look at their network. We are "go" to pilot a hotspot for them.

I am going to setup dd-wrt on a router, either the netgear WGR614 v8 (their so called "Open Source" router) or on a linksys WRT-54G-L (their so called "Linux" router). Probably depends on what I have in my closet.

For separation of traffic, they have a sonicwall TZ-150 (entry level firewall) that should be able to keep the subnets separate.
If not, the wifi router will simply DROP any packets directed at their internal subnet except for the gateway IP. One iptables rule and call that done!

Also, this product should be able to do CoS (Class of Service) so bandwidth shaping should be automatic once configured.
Worst case scenario is we cap the router bandwidth at 60% of DSL capacity.

I will later try to get a WPA protected "virtual access point" setup that would give them hidden access to their internal network from a laptop - after authenticating of course.

They have a guy to run the cable from the restaurant office over head to a ceiling space between the bar and the main dining room.
This is mostly central to the entire restaurant, but more importantly it is central to the areas where it will be use most.
So yes, it is expected to have a single wireless AP at this time.

Last thing; They are up for free and unfiltered access, but do want to collect an email address as a single-step sign on process. so some minimal scripting on the router for the splash page.

More as it develops,
John Fields
