Abstract
Technology is no longer judged by itstechnical brilliance, but by the return oninvestment (both tangible andintangible). This in turn, is dictated bythe killer application for that technology.Wireless Networks fit into this becausethe technology has been around longenough and can provide enough benefitsto be seriously considered for deployment.At the enterprise, it providescommunication support for mobilecomputing. It overcomes and, in fact,annihilates the physical limitation of wired networks in terms of adaptabilityto a variation in demand.Mobility is another feature by wireless.Mobile users can be truly mobile, in thathey don’t need to be bound to their seatswhen connecting to the network.Mobility, however is not only associatedwith users, it’s also associated with theinfrastructure itself. You can have awireless network up and running in notime, a boon for people who need to do itfor exhibitions, events, etc.This leads to other provision of wireless,that of scalability. It really helps inextending your network. It also becomesimportant if an enterprise has a rentedoffice and needs to shift to a new place.At home, the need for wireless is moreto do with ubiquitous computing.Wi-Fi, or wireless fidelity, is freedom: itallows you to connect to the internetfrom your couch at home, a bed in ahotel room, or a conference room atwork without wires. It is a wirelesstechnology like cell phones, Wi-Fienabled computers send and receive dataindoors and outdoors; anywhere withinthe range of the base station. And thebest thing of all, Wi-Fi is fast. In fact,it’s several times faster than the fastestcable modem connection.Wireless technology, therefore is reallyhappening, and should be seriouslyconsidered. The following presentationexplains wireless LANs, choice of wireless technologies., how wi-fiworks?, examples & it’s supportingsystems, security issue , wireless-Lanconfiguration & finally advantages &disadvantages of  wifi.
 
Introduction
 
Wi-Fi
, also,
WiFi
,
WI-fi
or 
wifi
, isa brand originally licensed by the Wi-FiAlliance to describe the underlyingtechnology of wireless local areanetworks (WLAN) based on the IEEE802.11 specifications. 
Wireless LAN
(
WLAN)
is a flexibledata communication systemimplemented as an extension to a wiredLAN within a building or campus.WLANs transmit and receive data over the air by electrical signals, minimizingthe need for wired connections. Theadvent of WLAN
 
opened up a wholenew definition of what a network infrastructure can be. No longer does aninfrastructure need to be solid and fixed,difficult to move and expensive tochange. Instead it can move with theuser and change as fast as theorganization does.Wi-Fi was developed to be used for mobile computing devices, such aslaptops, in LANs, but is nowincreasingly used for more applications,including Internet and VoIP phoneaccess, gaming, and basic connectivityof consumer electronics such astelevisions and DVD players, or digitalcameras.A person with a Wi-Fi device, such as acomputer, telephone, or personal digitalassistant (PDA) can connect to theInternet when in proximity of an accesspoint. The region covered by one or several access points is called a hotspot.Hotspots can range from a single roomto many square miles of overlappingHotspots. Wi-Fi can also be used tocreate a Wireless mesh network.Wi-Fi also allows connectivity in peer-to-peer mode, which enables devices toconnect directly with each other. Thisconnectivity mode is useful in consumer electronics and gaming applications.
Choice Of  WirelessTechnology
The widespread reliance on networkingin business and the meteoric growth of the Internet and online services arestrong testimonials to the benefits of shared data and shared resources. Withwireless LANs, users can access sharedinformation without looking for a placeto plug-in. Wireless LAN offers thefollowing productivity and convenienceover Wired Networks:► Mobility► Installation Speed and Simplicity► Installation Flexibility► Reduced Cost of Ownership► Scalability
