[THIN] Re: Fun with Networking

Probably but by the time I get one installed and built, I could just buy
something.  Speed is more important than cost at this point.

Could you not fudge it with a wintel box with a wireless card running as
a nat/rras/vpn gateway stylee thang?

Thanks Jan.  Ideally the hotel can give me a wired external connection
rather than the 192.168 wireless they have.  I still have to stay
compliant with HIPAA which is why I figure the VPN will work.  I will
check out the Linksys if it comes to that.

Thanks!

Greg, the netgear 802.11g devices do routing and bridging.

My company runs residential communities for the elderly and nursing
homes in Florida.  One of them is in Port Charlotte which took a direct
shot from hurricane Charley on Friday.

Fortunately, all our buildings there are made out of poured concrete and
can take just about anything a hurricane can dish out.  But we did have
some roof problems, blown out widows, and no power or water.  We don't
expect to have any of this back anytime soon either.  Our employees are
also dealing with their own disasters.  Amazingly, there entire are has
no phone services, no cell services, but our AT&T frame relay is up and
running just fine and never went down.  The terminals we have running on
auxiliary power are running and connecting just fine.

We are moving all of our residents to a couple nice hotels in Tampa
(Harbor Island for those who know Tampa) while we straighten out our
location in Port Charlotte and make it livable again.

This gets fun because I have to set up remote offices at the hotels for
operations and activities.  I have a Watchguard firebox at out main
office and can easily make a VPN connection with another Watchguard
device at the hotel.  From there, terminals can connect back to my
metaframe farm with no trouble.

The trick is that the connection available to me is wireless. I am
trying to find a device (quick) that will bridge the wireless connection
available at the hotel to my Watchguard as the external connection.
Since we started this on a Sunday, I have not yet had a chance to ask
the IT staff at the hotel for a wired connection.  I am organizing on a
worst case scenario and just wanted to get some ideas from everyone.

all ideas greatly appreciated!

Greg
