I'm planning a small, wireless network and just wanted to make sure I
understand the basic components I'll need and how they work together.
What I think it should look like:
DSL modem<->OpenBSD router/firewall<->Access Point~~Wireless Laptops
...where "<->" represents ethernet cable and "~~" is a wireless
connection. Based on what I've read the AP acts like a hub, so the
laptops' gateway would be the IP on the "right" side of the router in
the diagram above. Am I on the right track? Also, I'd be much obliged
if anyone could pass along a link(s) to something like "wireless
networks for beginners/newbies" that describes the hardware issues.
TIA and Happy New Year.
