Recently a wireless security blog was published advocating an inner layer of defense such as a wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) to protect the core network from wireless attacks. This is because the integrated security mechanism provided by the wireless LAN cannot protect against many different types of attacks such as rogue APs, unauthorized client connections, ad-hoc networks, MAC spoofing and many other attacks.

What is your experience with a wireless intrusion prevention system?
Do you think security integrated with the WLAN infrastructure is flawed?
Do you agree with the blog’s point of view?

Most networks I've come across either have the wireless outside the firewall or, at the very least, on a segregated VLAN. Only a foolish admin would give wireless access to the core network (but... we all know those are out there!)
