  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux

Today we'll build a wireless access point, so that you can have both wired and wireless clients on your LAN. Some security-conscious admins prefer using a standalone WAP, rather than combining it with a firewall/gateway. It's simpler to build a dedicated WAP, so that's what we'll do today. You are welcome to put it together however you like
