The other question is;  is the the kind of setup in use in most corporate
envs?  While it's likely standard for home setups, this might not be the
same for companies requiring more flexability.

anyways, we do know that war driving has proved that wireless
transmissions do leak beyond a few hundred yards.  and are detectable at
least 1/2 to 2 miles out, with minimal additions to the transmitting or
receivine antenaes.
