Saul folded the letter back up and stuffed it into the envelope with the cash. He quickly stashed the envelope between his mattresses to hide and sat back on the bed in
The first thing I need to do is figure out what locations are best for placing some wireless bridges, Saul thought to himself. Proper placement is key here if I want to inject as much miscellaneous traffic into their network as possible. Saul also knew that the signal from his wireless network would need to be stronger than that of the small caf s around the hospital. Saul thought to himself, If I use the same type of access point as the hospital with a nice omnidirectional antenna, I should be able to extend the network cleanly and pretty much double the range of the signal.

The next morning he woke up energized. Saul knew he now had to look at this project in an entirely new light. What Knuth was asking would most likely be illegal in his country. His only saving grace was that Knuth actually owned the hospital and had asked Saul directly to do this. But to do this work, Saul would have to be more
To bridge the wireless network, Saul had to know for sure that the access points being used by the hospital were actually Lucent AP-1000. This would require him to walk through the medical facility looking for an access point. He hoped they were hanging on the walls out in the
He also realized that there were potential issues with bridging the hospital s network to extend the range. The possibility that the access points participating in the network were identified and controlled by MAC address filters had not occurred to Saul before now. The bridging within the hospital allowed a wireless
The current configuration could cause serious issues for Saul because it would restrict his ability to bridge into the existing access points with his own hardware. I ll need to figure out where the primary AP is and try to log in, Saul thought to himself. If they have MAC restrictions turned on, I ll have to figure out a way to get into the AP management console and add the MAC addresses of the new access points.
Then there was the issue of housing the new APs in the local vicinity. The new hardware had to be within a reasonable distance of the existing wireless network in order for any bridging to work. He needed to figure out how to get wireless access points into the various locations around the hospital that he had
