Wireless Network Modes:

Wireless networks work in one of two modes labeled as topologies: ad-hoc mode and infrastructure mode. The mode utilized depends on whether the objective is for computers to communicate directly with each other, or via a WAP.

-In ad-hoc mode, data is sent to and from wireless network adapters connected to the computers. This eliminates the requirement to purchase a WAP. Throughput rates between two wireless network adapters are twice as fast compared to using a single network adapter connecting to a WAP. However, when a network is in ad-hoc mode it can’t link up to a wired network. An ad-hoc network is also referred to as a peer-to-peer network.
