Blanket-coverage wireless via desktop machine wireless cards in "Master" mode?
We have a desktop machine in each classroom with spare PCI / PXI Express slots or USB ports. Shouldn't it be possible to simply install a wireless device capable of "master" mode in each desktop machine if we wanted wireless access in each classroom? It shouldn't be too much trouble to have a small client application on each machine that reported back to a central server so the channel numbers could be adjusted to reduce interference between adjacent wireless points. Am I missing some obvious limitation of such a system?
