This paper proposes a set of technical and managerial solutions which can be adopted by organizations to protect their 802.11 wireless LANs. A case study methodology was carried out by selecting five individual cases, including two wireless vendor cases and three organizational user cases. The primary source of data was face-to-face interviews. Another portion of the data came from extensive secondary materials. Findings from the case study were integrated with the ones from the existing literature to shape the final conclusions and recommendations of this research.
