One trick we do is pickup any IPs trying to connect to things they shouldnt (like core routers) on port 5060 or 5061 and add them to a banned list for a minimun of 12 hours. If you do this on your internet gateway its a good way to s...

Re: WDS connected via cat5 - is this feasible?

Why not use one AP but run "Leaky" Coax through the freezer area from end to end?
the savings in buying/maintaining lots of Active gear will most likly pay for the cost of such coax after a short amount of time.
