A wireless network for the office

Posted on Jun 11, 2002

The wireless network for the office is up and running now. Initially, the Regus supplied network port had almost all traffic restricted (only possible use was web browsing, and that through a "transparent" proxy). They were actually quite good at sorting it out over the phone, and within an hour we had all of the restrictions removed.

Performance is quite good - with our Cisco VPN running between my laptop, over wireless, through firewall, through Regus network to BT, over the internet to the VPN server, etc. the RTT is around 25ms. Perfectly usable.

Proposed instructions are written, just being reviewed by Richard, Paul, Guy and Alec Muffett.
