1-5 Applications
The wireless LAN products are easy to install and highly efficient. The following list describes some of the
many applications made possible through the power and flexibility of wireless LANs:
1. Difficult-to-wire environments
There are many situations where wires can not or not easily be laid. Historic buildings, older buildings,
open areas and across busy streets make the installation of LANs either impossible or very expensive.
2. Temporary workgroups
Consider situations in parks, athletic arenas, exhibitions, disaster-recovery, temporary office and
construction sites where one wants a temporary WLAN established and removed.
3. The ability to access real-time information
Doctors/nurses, point-of-sale employees, and warehouse workers can access real-time information while
dealing with patients, serving customers and processing information.
4. Frequently changed environments
Show rooms, meeting rooms, retail stores, and manufacturing sites where frequently rearrange the
workplace.
5. Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) networks
SOHO users need a cost-effective, easy and quick installation of a small network.
6. Wireless extensions to Ethernet networks
Network managers in dynamic environments can minimize the overhead caused by moves, extensions to
4
networks, and other changes with wireless LANs.
7. Wired LAN backup
Network managers implement wireless LANs to provide backup for mission-critical applications running
on wired networks.
8. Training/Educational Facilities
Training sites at corporations and students at universities use wireless connectivity to ease access to
information, information exchanges, and learning.
1-6 Network Configurations
To better understand how the wireless LAN products work together to create a wireless network, it might
be helpful to depict a few of the possible wireless LAN PC card network configurations. The wireless LAN
products can be configured as:
1. Ad-hoc (or peer-to-peer) for departmental or SOHO LANs.
2. Infrastructure for enterprise LANs.
3. IP Sharing for 56K/ISDN TA/Cable/DSL Modem – Connect Internet and your SOHO network.
Ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) Mode
This is the simplest network configuration that several computers equipped with the PC Cards that form a
wireless network whenever they are within range of one another (Figure 1-1). In ad-hoc mode, each
client, is peer-to-peer, would only have access to the resources of the other client and requires no the
access point. This is the easiest and least expensive way for the SOHO to set up a wireless network.
Peer to Peer

Figure 1-1 A wireless Ad-hoc network
Infrastructure Mode
The infrastructure mode requires the use of an access point (AP). In this mode, all wireless
communications between two computers have to be via the AP no matter the AP is wired to Ethernet
network or stand-alone. If used in stand -alone, the AP can extend the range of independent wireless
LANs by acting a repeater, which effectively doubling the distance between wireless stations as shown in
Figure 1-2.
5
Figure 1-2
Extended-range independent WLAN using AP as repeater
If wired to an Ethernet network as shown in Figure 1-3, the AP serves as a bridge and provides the link
between the server and the wireless clients. The wireless clients can move freely throughout the
coverage area of the AP while remaining connected to the server. Since the ap is connected to the wired
network, each client would have access to server resources as well as to other clients.
Figure 1-3
Single AP bridge
Access points have a finite range, on the order of 50 meters indoor and 100 meters outdoors. In a very
large facility such as an enterprise, a warehouse, or on a college campus, it will probably be necessary to
6
install more than one access point to cover an entire building or campus, as shown in Figure 1-4. In this
scenario, access points hand the client off from one to another in a way that is invisible to the client,
ensuring roken connectivity. Wireless clients can roam seamlessly between different coverage areas and
remain connected to the network.
Figure 1-4
Multiple-AP and roaming
Wireless Router and IP Sharing
In infrastructure mode, in addition to acting as a bridge between an Ethernet and wireless network, the
AP can be configured as a wireless router and IP sharing device for Internet access as shown in Figure
1-5. You don’t have to buy an expensive router. Nor you have to buy several modems and setup phone
lines. Just share one AP, one Modem, single dial-up account, and one phone line, dozens of network
users can go surfing the Internet concurrently.
