lansing network simplification
fred + zorro/modem/wg121
the wg121 should be able to run with multiple ap or at least support
wds for fred. trying to eliminate sam.
* reset the wg121. probably firmware got broken, so reinstalling in
windows. -> that works. but i get the same errors on linux. giving
2nd option: get a 2nd wrt54g.
what's the trade-off
- almost certainly going to work (if the version n# is ok)
- trades wrt54g for wg121+fonera+ethernet (which is what i pay for)
OK so i'm waiting for the 2nd wrt54g to arrive. curious how this will
work out. the breaking point is going to be wether i can have an
un-encrypted wds link together with an encrypted client connection.
as far as i understand, wds isn't ESSID based, but MAC based. also, i
saw it's possible to make wds links without having an AP. should work
if that works, the best route to go is to use zorro with modem
attached, possibly mgetty, a way to choose between wifi and dialup,
and setup samba.
