Talk:Wireless networking (meetinghouse)

Curious about scheduling the wireless connection times. We were instructed by our stake to have a schedule and to secure things with a MAC address. -Kennova 13:26 October, 15th 2010 (UTC)

There is currently no firm policy on this, but these ideas do offer additional layers of control and a stake can certainly choose to implement both these things. If you know that there is no need to connect to wireless during particular hours and your access points can support it, by all means, feel free to set that up. You can also filter by MAC. Keep in mind, though, that MAC filtering is just an extra layer of security and not an end all by any means. -Paulscherbel 22:24, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Adding more ports should probably be on wired network section or main network section and then linked to from here. -Paulscherbel 16:22, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Aclawson, thanks for expanding the wireless signal section. I don't think, however, that we need that level of detail in this article here. Unless you strongly object, I'm going to trim that back to avoid overwhelming the users who may not be so network savvy. --Tom Johnson 23:07, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

The integrated wireless on your new firewall and 1041N access points will configure themselves automatically with a universal SSID and passphrase. The SSID will be broadcasted. This cannot be disabled. Though it is not encouraged, wireless on the 881W can be disabled by contacting the GSD Paulscherbel 21:00, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Is there some disconnect in both recommending that the foyers could make a good location for an access point, and noting that a more secure locked area than the clerk's office might be advisable? T. Mitchell
