I set the IP numbers manually at each client computer and thus they would only connect using that number. Connection problems died off instantly, then. The upshot is that if the MAC is unknown, it cant get access now even if the WEP is successfully decrypted. Wouldn't that radius auth be basically that idea?
That's what I read, as well as a lot of talk about "location-enabled
network or LENs", which the more reading I do give the impression they
have some kind of GPS functionality invovled, this is the only way I can
make any real sense of their claims to be able to segment the wLAN<s> into
locations and determine a sense of perimiter limits and location sense.
Of course, I'm trying to give the benefit of the doubt and read that they
actually sell what they are claiming in marketing lit.
