Wireless access points

Wireless Access Points (WAPs) are devices that provide connectivity between wireless LAN devices and in most cases a wired network. Wireless access points are distinguishable by their antennae, which are normally directional. Wireless access points are commonly used in 802.11b wireless Ethernet networks. Wireless access points can convert the signal from a radio wave into that used on the LANs.
