I'm new to this list, but have been reading the archives with interest since installing the Prism2 HostAP driver a couple of weeks ago.
The situation I have is as follows: a spare laptop running SuSE 7.3 (with 2.4.16 kernel, rebuilt to enable bridging). This has a 3Com Megahertz 10/100 card and an SMC wireless LAN card, set up to act as a wireless access point & transparent bridge onto the company network. All well & good so far - many thanks to Jouni for writing the driver.
The trouble is, at present the network is open to anyone in the office or the car park. I'm looking for a way to restrict access (I don't need military strength security, but it shouldn't be left wide open as at present) and have been looking at 3 options:
Any reports from anyone who is successfully using any of these methods to secure their wireless LAN would be much appreciated.
