[MLB-WIRELESS] DNS, DHCP, static ip...

it gets a bit hard to allocate IP's at the moment... mainly due to routing
concerns... how do we route effectively on such an ad-hoc network? some
people have mentioned using RIP or similar to automate routing propagation -
something to which I am not familiar with - so I can't comment on..
Anyone have any suggestions? comments? routing systems? something to give us
a bit of headway into this 'monster'?
Out the 100Base-T, off the firewall, through the router, down the T1,
over the leased line, off the bridge, nothing but Net.
The net will not be what we demand, but what we make it. Build it well.
