    WiFi, WiNot?

    WiFi (or wireless networking) has been gaining popularity for a few years. But just recently it's weaved its way into your local coffeehouse, airport terminal, library, and the waiting area of your favorite tire center. There's even excitement over a zany wireless network implemented 17,500 feet above sea level. And who can forget about New York's MagicBike!

    I've had some limited exposure to WiFi setup through a recent project. I've been working with vendors to provide a wireless network at an upcoming Technology Solutions trade show in Hartford. They're building a great spot with quality equipment at a low cost to the exhibitors. When you examine the basics of WiFi, you quickly discover that a good solution doesn't mean an expensive solution. Why just look at the Poor Man's WiFi courtesy of a couple crazy New Zealand innovators and a Chinese cookware scoop.
