Wireless Features

Introduction

Wireless bridging, i.e. connecting two wired networks via a wireless link has gotten to be a very confusing subject. In this NTK, we're going to try to untangle the mess that wireless networking companies have made of this product area, help you choose the right products for your application, and show you how to set them up properly.

Tip! Updated 15 April 2004 Tip: A newer bridging technology - Wireless Distribution System (WDS) - available on newer, usually 802.11g-based products has started to bring some standardization to this subject. See our ProblemSolver: Setting up WDS Bridging / Repeating for more info.

We've got a lot to do, so let's get started.
