* 2 LINKSYS POE Adapter WAPPOE12 12V
* OpenWrt "Whiterussian" 0.9
The nice part is, all this can be done for under $300, and its all open-source! This is a great, cheap, fast, and easy way to handle guests that may be coming into your network. Below are the step-by-step guidelines for getting the initial setup going:
* Step 1 - Unbox and flash the routers. For the WRT54GL, you must use the web interface to put the initial OpenWrt image on them. (Question, why does Linksys not enable boot_wait by default?). Also, do not use the PoE adapters when flashing!
* Step 7 - Configure Wireless - Place the access points on their respecitve channels using the command "nvram set wl0_channel=1". Ideally, you could have 3 APs, one on channel 1, 6, and 11. Now, set all of the SSIDs to the same value using the command "nvram set wl0_ssid="guestwireless".
In Part II, we will show you how to implement a captive portal for guest authentication, and maybe even how to add some further layers of security such as intrusion detection and IP filtering.
