What kind of wireless are you talking about. A purchased deal that has that
range or 802.11b? 802.11b has a max range of about 300-500 feet.

Then also security would be an issue. How secure will this be? 128 bit
encryption or more? Can any ol' Joe Schmo hook up to this with a wireless
NIC?

Wireless is cool, but the technology is so new that most people don't know
how to secure it for a corporate network. Check out this article
(http://www.extremetech.com/article/0,3396,s%253D1024%2526a%253D13880,00.asp
) for more information.

As far as remote printing goes, we do that over our corporate wired network
over hundreds of miles away.

I need to send printouts from my dispatching software on a 400 to five
remote locations ( fire houses.)  I am entertaining three proposals to
address the connectivity issue.  On of the proposals is to do this using
wireless.  I like the concept because of the ongoing costs.

As I understand this implementation, I can configure the remote printers
with a specified outque name and static IP address.  When the application
sends a printout it will be directed to a specific outque name (the
software app handles based upon data entered.)   The data would be passed
to the NT network and routed via wireless based upon the IP address
established in the printer configuration on the 400.

The os is V4R3 but I will be upgrading to V4R5.
The furthest remote location is 2.5 miles.

Is there any reason I can't configure a printer this way?  Any suggestions
on a low end laser printer will work well with V4R3?
Any experience with wireless printing over this type of distance?
