I got back from the UK on Saturday. That was a great
vacation; it was my first time to another country outside of
North America. I've dropped off my various rolls of film to
at Safeway to be developed and put on a kodak Picture CD so
I can webify them.
The first thing I did when I got back was see these
on using an Apple Airport without the need for a mac. I
went down to Fry's and bought one as well as borrowing a
Lucent WaveLAN Silver card from work. Wow. I'm impressed.
That was extreemly easy to setup. The airport is acting
like a bridge between my ethernet and the airwaves for me.
I ended up using the java
airport configurator to change the settings on my
airport rather than the mentioned windows based tool.
Now, does anyone out there have any good ideas on howto
setup a wavelan card to automatically figure out which
encryption keys to use when it gets plugged in? (as in,
pick the correct keys from a list; I'd like to use a
different key at home than I do at work).
Also, anyone know if Gold cards can speak lowly Silver-style
crypto if simply given a small key? (ie: Gold cards hardly
cost anymore from techstore.com so I'd
rather not buy a Silver card even if thats all I need)
