Is Wireless Really Worth It?

Written by Daniel
Thursday, 04 September 2008
Wireless technology may be convenient, but it also introduces significant hassles – and risks

AUGUST 14, 2008 | Wireless networks are ubiquitous these days. We are all, for better or worse, being bombarded by radio waves in all sorts of frequency ranges, and if we could put a 2.4GHz monitor in our heads, we’d be overloaded by the sheer volume of traffic screaming around on wireless networks using that frequency.

"Though all men live in ignorance before mystery,
they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

"All that we do is touched by Ocean
Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
Richard Wilbur

It sounds like whoever wrote that article doesn't know much about wireless in the enterprise.

You don't. You shouldn't be trying to use variations of protocols designed for home use in an enterprise situation. Instead, you set up a central authentication server (Radius), and use the enterprise versions of WPA. That way, authentication and authorisation is performed from a single central server, regardless of how many wireless access points you have.
