Chapter 15: Wireless LANs

by Christine Schmied

You cannot discuss any kind of networking in today’s IT community without including wireless LANs (WLAN). Few today have not encountered some type of wireless LAN: in the office, the airport and their local Starbucks or favorite bookstore. Wireless LANs are inexpensive to setup when compared with the cost of a physical wired network, considering cost of cable, working within the walls, labor charges and any permits required to run cable. Wireless LANs are also usually much faster to install; for simple networks, the majority of the time is spent setting up the Access Point (AP).The installation of the client device is usually very easy.

To understand the basics of wireless LANs, we will cover the technologies required, regulations involved, the fundamentals of installing and configuring a wireless network and some simple security measures that everyone should take.
