Re: [K12OSN] Wireless TC assistance

For what it's worth, I've played around with hooking a terminal to a wireless bridge. I was able to achieve a usable wireless LTSP terminal in that configuration. As I remember it, it wasn't too bad to use from a speed perspective.

Back then a bridge cost $80 and was about the size of two decks of cards - I have no idea what a bridge would look like or cost today.

That would work, putting the boot parts and minimal os on a usb stick
then connecting  to ltsp for users but that stops  being ltsp
alltogether. Ltsp just isnt wireless able for a simple reason no pxe in
wireless cards, and i doubt there will ever be. Anyway cabling allows
for usable fast gigabit clients and its not the end of the world to rely
on cabling

    I downloaded this file from the Ubuntu list long ago.
    I never tried it myself but others report that have had success with it.
    Maybe with a little tweak you can make it work :-)

    Please let us know if you can make it work in K12

        After having messed a few minutes with an NComputing TC this is

        very much the same as k12linux/k12ltsp, bottom line ,only at

        We do have several TC's that I can burn a minimal ' wireless bootup
        distro' onto SD cards to test with.
