Sure. When you need to just plug the switch into the Linksys
...well, it's not the -only- way. ( and I'm a bit surprised that
others haven't provided alternate schemas already )
Another would be to have the Linksys between the Broadband
Modem and the external NIC ( WWSs on the same subnet as the
external NIC ), and have the WWS users use a VPN to access
the internal network.
This looks "Messy" to me, and as I say I haven't tried or tested it.
- Not sure what all the Security / User implications of it would be
or the Pros and Cons compared to the setup I described where
users log-on to the Domain as they would if they were wired to it.
Something I'll no doubt have to get around to, ..but not today. :-)
There are possibly other scenarios as well, and enhancements to the
security via Key Rotation and the Wireless Security Update for XP.
Perhaps someone with more experience here would like to chip in.
