 Wireless Network Functions:

Conventional Ethernet networks rely on cables connected to computers via hubs and switches. This limits the computer’s mobility and requires that even portable computers be physically connected to access the network. The optimal alternative is wireless networking.

Wireless networks use network cards, called Wireless Network Adapters, that use radio signals or infrared (IR) signals to send and receive data via a Wireless Access Point (WAP). The Wireless Access Point uses the RJ-45 port to connect to a 10BASE-T or 10/100BASE-T Ethernet hub or switch. A radio transceiver, encryption, and communications software are incorporated. It converts conventional Ethernet signals into wireless Ethernet signals that are transmitted to wireless network adapters, and performs a reverse transfer of signals from wireless network adapters to the conventional Ethernet network.
