What is really sad about this is that it probably won't work very well. A couple of weeks ago I was over on California street installing a wireless LAN. During our testing, we were able to pick up over 200 APs, from the 26th floor with only the built in wireless card in the laptop. We know that a couple of them were in the biulding, but most were not. Over 50 % of those APs were showing a signal of -80dB or better.
