RE: [K12OSN] usb wireless nics



I'm actually using this for home use.  Only three PCs are connecting.  I
don't think I'll use it as a server for thin clients.  More for file storage
and proxy/firewall.

If you mean for the server, you want wired; and if you mean for the client,
you 
still want wired.  In the server, for the NIC supporting the clients you
want a 
gigabit card, with each client having a 100Mb NIC.  You might, *MIGHT* get
away 
with a wireless NIC in the server for eth1, the NIC that connects the server
to 
the internet/school's network, but it depends on what the server is being
used 
for.  If it's for a lot of internet stuff, I think the users will be quickly

frustrated by the  performance.  OTOH, if the primary apps are word
processing 
and things that are local to the server, and there's only a modest amount of

upstream traffic, a wireless link might work.  But I wouldn't bet heavily on
it. 
   Instead, I'd suggest focusing on figuring out how to get a wired
connection 
to the server.
