Components of a wireless LAN
To set up your Wireless network at home you need to have the following:
Access point (router)
Access points (routers) are two-way transceivers that broadcast data into the
surrounding environment. Access points act as a mediator between wired
and wireless network. Most routers have a built-in DSL modem that will allow
you access to a high speed DSL internet connection. The ISP (Internet
Service Provider) you have chosen normally supplies a modem/router with
the subscription to their services. Read carefully the documentation supplied
with your Access point/router for detailed setup instructions.
