I have to create a wireless access in all the conference room

I don't know which product would be interesting to use for managing
right for a guest access ? What are you using ? It should be used by
several non-technical people, be sufficiently granular (access for
guest for several hours, half-day) and be sufficiently verbose to
have reports of what the people did.
You might look into PacketFense. It will allow you to setup captive
portals. I'm guessing you could set it up so that depending on how
they authenticate it would put them in a private or guest VLAN.
The second question concerns the cohabitation between wired and
wireless connection. We don't want (especially my boss) that the two
connection are active at the same time. When the laptop is connected
through wire, it will not be possible to connect throught wireless.
Has somebody face this problematic ? Is there a client that could
control that ? We use mainly different Dell laptop, with different
AirDefense has a client program you can run on all your winblows
systems that will allow you to apply policies from their policy server
to only allow one network connection at a time.
