How to control wireless coverage

Unanswered Question
Oct 13th, 2008

I am looking for a product that will allow me to control the wireless coveragem I would like to allow wireless internet connection in one room, and block access on the other rooms which are 10 meters away, basically I want my clients to be able to surf the internet within the designated area and not in other areas. Is there anyway to control that? or perhaps block the connection in other areas? ideally, I would also like to have a report showing which websites were accessed etc.


I have this problem too.

The only real way to control this is through the use of power, antenna gain, and attenuators. Use an AP 1242 at very low power with adjustable attenuators to reduce the power or increase the power as needed. Make sure to turn off the 1 and 2 meg beacons so as to not broadcast those in the further rooms that you don't want coverage.
