Set Up Wireless Access Point with Home Network
What is wireless access point? What are the tips to set up Wireless Access Point with Home Network?
Wireless Access Point refers to specially configured nodes on wireless local area networks. The wireless access point will work as a central transmitter and receiver between the WLAN radio signals. The wireless access point is needed to connect a group of wireless stations to any adjacent wired Local Area Network. The wireless access point is just like an Ethernet hub. The wireless access point relays 802.11 frames to all other 802.11 or 802.3 stations in the same subnet instead of relaying LAN frames to other 802.3 stations only. It is needed to forward IP packets between your wireless subnet and other subnets. Wireless Access Points are used in business and large hotspot WLANS. Access points are needed to access a bigger region. But, it possible to setup the wireless access point for your Home Network also. This can be done to achieve high network coverage in the Home network.
