Wireless is an area unto its own - loads of HW issues, loads of driver issues, and then the security configurations. And (oh am I sure that someone will take this as an insult, but not meant that way...) [-o<Linux and Ubuntu in particular has a lot of wireless challenges and they tend to clog up the currently merged forums.

Networking can include wireless access but has more general themes like Windows/Samba, NFS, etc.

Trying to find a true networking thread in the wireless haystack is pretty difficult these days, even using Search.

Any else have thoughts? :-\"

One reason I would not venture there. There be dragons, wireless ones...
