  2. Wireless access point - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_access_point

    In computer networking, a wireless access point (WAP), or more generally just access point (AP), is a networking hardware device that allows other Wi-Fi devices to connect to a wired network. As a standalone device, the AP may have a wired connection to a router , but, in a wireless router , it can also be an integral component of the router ...

    Wi-Fi (/ ˈ w aɪ f aɪ /) is a family of wireless network protocols, based on the IEEE 802.11 family of standards, which are commonly used for local area networking of devices and Internet access, allowing nearby digital devices to exchange data by radio waves.

    WEP used a 64-bit or 128-bit encryption key that must be manually entered on wireless access points and devices and does not change. TKIP employs a per-packet key, meaning that it dynamically generates a new 128-bit key for each packet and thus prevents the types of attacks that compromised WEP.

    Access routers, including small office/home office (SOHO) models, are located at home and customer sites such as branch offices that do not need hierarchical routing of their own. Typically, they are optimized for low cost. Some SOHO routers are capable of running alternative free Linux-based firmware like Tomato, OpenWrt, or DD-WRT.

    Wi-Fi networks are built using one or more wireless antenna called access points. Many "modems" ( cable modems , DSL gateways or Optical Network Terminals (ONTs)) provide the additional functionality to host a LAN so most Internet access today is through a LAN such as that created by a WiFi router connected to a modem or a combo modem router ...

  8. Wireless site survey - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_site_survey

    For system design purposes, one or more temporary access points are deployed to identify and qualify access point locations. This used to be the most common method of pre-deployment wifi survey. During an active survey, the wireless adapter is associated with one or several access points to measure round-trip time, throughput rates, packet loss ...
