We have an SBS2003 (useing 2 NICs) with ISA server Premium installation
(Server and 2 desktops) and wish to connect a laptop and a desktop
wirelessly. Hub is 10baseT.

As I see it we have two choices. One is to connect an access point to the
hub and use ISA server as the firewall etc or use it for caching and use one
of these wireless routers with built in firewall. I am not sure which way
should be go. Which is more secure!!

All comments gratefully received.
