[unisog] Wireless in residence building - Tricky problem

Speaking of tricky problems with wireless in residence buildings... is
anyone else fighting the problem where Windows XP Home for laptop users
decides to bridge between their WiFi and wired connections?

We have engineered a workaround by limiting the number of MAC addresses
the switches will learn for a given port, but it still causes problems.

There isn't a DHCP option that says "this network is a large structured
network, not a small home network" that would disable "features"
like Internet connection sharing and bridging is there?

Cheers!
John
