Hi Andrew.  We too are going looking into this option. Initial talks
with vendors have indicated that 802.1N should be the way to go as it
provides much more bandwidth than A or G. I am currently waiting for the
vendor to do a site visit and survey of our requirement. I would
appreciate any thoughts you may have on this. One other criteria that is
important to us is battery life of the laptops to see the classes
through 5 periods straight before it can be recharged.

Subject: [offtopic] Class sets of laptops

Dear all
The school is currently investigating purchasing class sets off laptops
for use by the students so they can connect via wireless to the schools
I have been asked to investigate if and how other schools are doing this
So, are then any schools that use laptops on a class set basis and also
use wireless to let the students connect.
We are not looking at going to a full laptop program but as part of
round 2 offers we need to investigate another option other then trying
to cable new rooms.
I would like to arrange a on site visit for My Technician and I if
Please respond off list directly to
