Hey, here's a question I never managed to ask anybody at the conference:

How do you deal with handing out IP addresses and doing DHCP and so forth?

So, let's say you start with the whole range.  You probably 
want the individual access points to do DHCP with the clients that connect 
to them.  But they have to decide what range of IPs to hand out.  How do 
they decide that?  Do you assign each router a range when it joins the 
network?  How do you decide on an IP address for a router?  Does that do 
DHCP with something else, or do you give them out by hand?
