Wireless Hacking Projects

Lee Barken and var, Wireless Hacking: Projects for Wi-Fi Enthusiasts, Syngress

Have you set up your wi-fi community network yet? Well, you 
don't have to but it is a good way to meet neighbours and generally
further the human understanding thing. 

Wireless Hacking Projects has been put together by members of the
SoCalFreeNet.org wireless users group and they know a thing or two
about the subject, so much so that they offer help to other groups
wanting to get started ... in addition to this book.

After an overview of the wireless world we're taken through most
areas we're likely to think about, and given information and
projects along the way. In addition to obvious ones such as setting
up an Access Point (AP), there are quite a collection of less
obvious areas such as Mesh Networking, Solar-powered AP's, re-
programming your AP to run Linux, mangling your card to provide an
external antenna, and much, much, more.
