An access point (AP) with an antenna is physically connected to a conventional wired Ethernet network and Servers as a bridge to the wireless network. Wi-Fi WLAN also supports communication among the client systems, allowing the devices to communicate directly with one another in a peer-to peer fashion.Up to approximately 150 feet, a Wi-Fi 802.11b WLAN typically can deliver broadband performance with a signaling speed of up to 11 Mbps. Actual performance depends upon the signal pattern and the number of walls, floors and other architectural obstacles in the area. Wi-Fi 802.11a WLANs can achieve speeds of up to 54 Mbps within a somewhat reduced range.
