Network Devices: Access Points

In this lesson, we introduce you to access points and how that actually works in a networking environment. Please Note:  All Wireless Access Points ARE NOT Routers, so play close attention and you’ll learn why. Upon completion of this lesson, you’ll be able to diagram and plan a corporate wireless network.  You’ll be able to define each component needed, and what function each component performs. We’ll also explain the difference between a wireless access point and an Ad Hoc Network and whether it’s similar to a Mesh topology or a Star topology.
