Wireless Access Point

A wireless access point (WAP or AP) is a device that "connects" wireless communication devices together to create a wireless network. The WAP is usually connected to a wired network, and can relay data between devices on each side. Many WAPs can be connected together to create a larger network that allows "roaming". In contrast, a network where the client devices manage themselves is called an ad-hoc network.

Low-cost, easily-installed WAPs offer a way to avoid tangled messes of Category 5 cable associated with typical Ethernet networks.  While wiring a business, home, or school often requires stringing many cables through walls and ceilings, wireless networking offers the ability to cut down on, or eliminate entirely, the number of cables needing to be strung. Wireless networks also allow users greater mobility; freeing individuals from the need to be stuck at a computer cabled to the wall

A typical corporate use of a WAP is to attach it to a wired network, and then provide wireless client adapters for users who need them. Within the range of the WAP, the wireless end-user has a full network connection with the benefit of mobility. In this instance, the WAP is a gateway for clients to access the wired network. Another use is to bridge two wired networks where cable is not appropriate; for example, a manufacturer can wirelessly connect a remote warehouse's wired network with a separate (though within line of sight) office's wired network.
