Using a WLAN

With a WLAN device, you can access a wireless local area network (WLAN), which is composed of other
devices and accessories that are linked by a wireless router or a wireless access point.
NOTE:
The terms wireless router and wireless access point are often used interchangeably.
A large-scale WLAN, such as a corporate or public WLAN, typically uses wireless access points
that can accommodate a large number of devices and accessories and can separate critical
network functions.
A home or small office WLAN typically uses a wireless router, which allows several wireless and
wired devices to share an Internet connection, a printer, and files without requiring additional pieces
of hardware or software.
To use the WLAN device in your device, you must connect to a WLAN infrastructure (provided through
a service provider or a public or corporate network).

Setting up a WLAN

To set up a WLAN and connect to the Internet, you need the following equipment:
A broadband modem (either DSL or cable) (1) and high-speed Internet service purchased from an
Internet service provider (ISP)
A wireless router (purchased separately) (2)
The wireless device (3)
