802.11 wireless networks : the definitive guide

Author: Matthew Gast
Publisher: Sebastopol, CA ; Farnham : O'Reilly, 2005.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
Summary:
As we all know by now, wireless networks offer many advantages over fixed (or wired) networks. Foremost on that list is mobility, since going wireless frees you from the tether of an Ethernet cable at a desk. But that's just the tip of the cable-free iceberg. Wireless networks are also more flexible, faster and easier for you to use, and more affordable to deploy and maintain. The de facto standard for wireless  Read more...
