Building Wireless Community Networks

from the book review on Linux Journal of "Building Wireless Community Networks"

"WiFi is great for setting up a simple office network (see the February 2002 Linux Journal), and much of the information in this book is applicable to such projects. But, Flickenger explains, "It didn't take long for some sharp hacker types (and, indeed, a few CEO and FCC types) to realize that by using 802.11b client gear in conjunction with standard radio equipment, effective range can extend to more than twenty miles, and potentially provide thousands of people with bandwidth reaching DSL speeds, for minimal hardware cost."
