Policies need enforcement and monitoring.

List,

Thanks for all the excellent advice so far.  Here's some more FYI.
Our policy does prohibit the installation of any "unauthorized devices"
and state that IT is supposed to approve all devices.  This is why I
think taking the policy route will alleviate the problem the quickest.

None the less, here's what I'm going to put together today with my BT
dongle to see just how far I can get with it.

I've got a lake behind me with about a quarter mile shot across it to
the nearest residences.  I've connected back to our regular wifi as a
proof of concept on keeping unsecured wireless out of our facilities.
Since BT is in the same range I'm curious to see how many BT enabled
phones and other devices I can hit across the lake. Once this antenna is
optimized then I'll check out the range on this keyboard if the install
ever happens on it.

I'll let the list know how this turns out.

Kevin
