TOPIC: 802.11xx ?

802.11xx ? 15 years 7 months ago #5568

Hello eveybody,
I have a couple of question:
1. If someone who have a deeper understanding about WIRELESS LAN,I want to know more about 802.11xx protocols.<As a tutorial if there is a site on this>
2.Let's assume that we have both wireless and wire LANs.We know that we have to have devices like Hub or Switch.My question is that can we change our switch(The Previous wired switch) into wirless switch-In background knowldge Switch is taking care of Hardware(correct me if I am wrong)But rather Bridge is working with software.In this assumption can we USE our pervious switch for Wireless purpose?
The Last questions.Sorry that I had to stop after the second one:
CAN i KNOW (basically,in the server controller view)-EITHER A PERSON IS USING wireless(Laptop) OR wired(PC) LAN???? :?:
Hope to say more!

Again, i am no expert on this either, YET :lol: Here are my thoughts on it;

1. The different standards on the protocols are mainly to do with speeds and occupying different frequency ranges. This document explains a little about it

2. Sorry but i don't fully understand what you are asking here ?

3. The only way you can do this is to segment the Wireless traffic off. If you had a seperate IP range on the Wireless to the Wired and routed the traffic between then, you can easily identify who was on the Wireless and who wasn't

As for #3. Many SOHO routers offer this information once you log into the router itself. You can often click a link which will show which hosts are connected, along with their mac addresses, and means of connection.
