Re: Connecting 2 Networks via Wireless or Cable Modem

At a Microsoft Security Conference last month, even they stated that
unless you are using one of the higher end access points, you need to
use VPN.

Thanks for all the replies. I have just placed an order for 2 x Linksys
WAP11 Access Points. I'll let you all know how it goes. 

 

Another question though, quite a bit off topic but do you think WEP128
is secure or should I run a VPN over the link?

 

Thanks

 

Matt

Mey be you don`t need and access point, Try the WAP11 (WirelessAccess
point) on wireless-bridge mode, you can link two of them and the lan`s
connected, to each one, will be transparently on the same Ethernet
Segment.

Matt,


 

Thanks for the quick reply. Nice to see someone else working on a Sunday
night. Hmmm!

 

Could I just put a wireless PCI card in each ISA and do a peer to peer
setup? 

 

Not really,  You need a card and a base station/router the set up I was
thinking off  was for you to ctreate a "Single" network behind the ISAs
(probably configured as an array) in order to do that you need to get
traffic from one set of wires to another - theoretically a pair of
routers or more economically a low end/old/spare PC  (configured to
route using a card ) at one end and a base station/router  at the other.
You may well have to sort out the IP addressing scheme at the same time
to resolve duplicates etc. 

 

 

The router gives you control of the relationship between the two wires -
what can talk to what etc

 

I don't think it would be sensible to use the ISAs as routers in this
case as you'd loose the fallback option.

 

Would I need a wireless access point or router? Yes

 

What would I need to configure on the |SAs to get them to route traffic
over the wireless interfaces? I believe its the clients that would need
to be configured - though I'm not sure, if it's an array I think it will
be covered in the clent setup.

 

If this sounds confusing it probably is.

 

 

Allan
