Thank you for any help..
Wireless Router can handle:
wireless Access Point (WAP) cna handle:
Wireless access points are commonly used in large office buildings to create one wireless local area network (WLAN) that spans a large area. Each access point typically supports up to 255 client computers. By connecting access points to each other, local networks having thousands of access points can be created. Client computers may move or roam between each of these access points as needed.
I have looked this up but now I am confused.
Why the trend toward WAP Or AP?
Is it because of cost?
I have read this:
a router is an AP that will allow you to connect to your ISP for internet connection. A router can be configured to work as an AP but a AP cannot function as a router
please don't refer to other links, it will only confuse me more.
just in basic simple answers please....
