Introduction, (Task 1)

As part of the schools approach to maintain ample resources for students the school will implement a wireless network across the school site as well as computer suit one and two, The increase of laptops and the acceptance of the use of students own laptops to be used in the classroom. A wireless net work will allow the students to connect to the schools own intranet and the internet. Currently we have 15 laptops with cable network connections and the likely hood of 25 senior students to lease laptops all of which will now run on a wireless network. The wireless local area network will have to have enough access points to maintain consistent network coverage and to handle the students work loads. The hardware required will have to be current an antenna in each room to help maintain coverage also outside antennas to complete the coverage of an area no more than 400 meters.
