gnat proposed a community effort to get the entire hotel on the OSCON network wirelessly. I've proposed several solutions but the largest constraints are the number of access points required (non-commercial grade) and finding rooms to put this stuff in.
So I pose a few questions. Can anyone bring commercial grade access points that can bridge and become an access point at the same time? Does anyone have amplified omni-directional antennas to slap on these things?
I'm looking for at least 6 of these beasties. With them in place, hitting fringe spots in the hotel would be less difficult. Two simple AP's with a crossover cable would be all that's needed to make a small cost node. I have enough for one node myself.
Please reply and tell me what you can bring so I can get an idea of feasibility.
