	I have been looking into the Cisco Aironet solution recently for
a project I'm working on.  They seem to have some great security
features, if you want to take the time to configure it.  Oh, another
caveat is that you have to use Cisco's wireless adapter as well,
otherwise, good ol' WEP for you!

	I haven't thought of the VPN idea that others have spoken of on
the NANOG list yet...that's a good idea too...hmm....

Subject: WLAN shielding

Apologies in advance if this may not quite be the proper list for such a

My company is investigating the use of wireless in a couple of our
conference rooms.  Aside from limiting the scope of reception with
various directional antennae, does anyone have any suggestions or
pointers for other ways to limit the propagation of signals (i.e.
special shielding paint, panels or other wall coatings)?

Feel free to reply off-list.
