Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP wireless?

Getting the cards to work on the server should be fairly straight forward -- you could even buy PCI cards with PCMCIA slots which would broaden the range of hardware supported -- and there are plenty of wireless terminals around --  but they tend to be sold  to do a specific task like collect inventory info  (fire up your wifi out side a Wal-Mart) or handle a credit card transaction -- you might be able to repurpose a Point of Sale Terminal, but you could buy miles of cat 5 for the cost differential between those and old desktops (which you should be able to get pretty much for free).  

Although it would be a neat project -- where are you trying to get to?  If you really need wireless you might do better to hard wire a "pod" of 3 or 4 desktops to a small wireless access point and connect the server the same way if you have to -- you would still suffer from the bandwidth issues already mentioned, but at least you could to a standard client and server install.

I am just getting started with Linux networking.  Will K12LTSP work with all wireless NICs on both eth0 and eth1?

Thanks, Dan.
