Description

This book explains the functional parts of a Wireless LAN system and their basic operation. You will learn how WLANs can use access points to connect to each other or how they can directly connect between two computers. Explained is the basic operation of WLAN systems and how the performance may vary based on a variety of controllable and uncontrollable events. This book will explain the key differences between the WLAN system versions such as frequency and data rates along with which versions are compatible with each other. Tips are included on how to install a WLAN system along with common problems you may encounter and solutions you may use.
