Hi Debbie, We, like you, are still in the planning stages of our Internet infrastructure. We plan on having internet throughout our community both through wifi in common spaces and wired Ethernet. We will be relying on a number of technologies to make all of this work properly. The challenge here being that of support of the system. Our system uses a name server to provide logins to the system. This gives us login security on the network. The wifi uses a radius server to validate wifi access through the name server. Guest access is provide in the common house on a separate router on a separate part of the LAN. Why all the security? Because we want to allow people to opt out, and the Internet in many ways is a scary place. We are also planning on running a VoIP telephony server to provide home phone service and free long distance to residents who want to participate. Maintenance and troubleshooting will be done by a team working with our expert and from detailed documentation and written recovery procedures practised regularly. Are we taking a risk using all this technology, definitely. Are we mitigating that risk, yes. Can we afford to leave our network unsecured (urban setting) ? No I hope this gives some grist for the mill, Henning Mortensen Prairie Spruce Commons (beginning construction 2015, fingers crossed) Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
