Hi Sascha and other CU-wireless people,

Thanks for the info, I think I should be able to attend this Sunday, 1:30 at 
IMC.  I am no expert on wireless internet, however, but am very interested 
in learning about it.  I searched the web for more technical information on 
setting up wireless internet, but only really found superficial or business 
oriented articles/websites (and most of it was dealing with small 
devices/client side of things or WAP).  Does anyone know of a good 
technically focussed web resource on what you are doing(or book I can get 
from Folletts or B&N or somewhere)?  Or perhaps you have some documentation 
on what you have already done (perhaps asking a bit too much:)?

Of course I am familiar with most popular internet standards, but more 
interested in something with info on what you guys are doing right now so 
that I will not be a complete dunce or too behind for your guys.
