15 Wireless Network Modes Infrastructure Mode Ad-Hoc Mode Bridging Mode Repeater Mode 11/9/201315Wi-Fi Technology

16 Infrastructure Mode Infrastructure mode wireless networking bridges (joins) a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network. Infrastructure mode wireless also supports central connection points for WLAN clients. Infrastructure mode networks offer the advantage of scalability, centralized security management and improved reach. 11/9/201316Wi-Fi Technology

17 Infrastructure Wireless Network Diagram [Wireless Router] 11/9/201317Wi-Fi Technology

18 Infrastructure Wireless Network Diagram [Wired Router + AP] 11/9/201318Wi-Fi Technology

19 Ad-Hoc Mode Ad-Hoc mode is a method for wireless devices to directly communicate with each other. Operating in ad-hoc mode allows all wireless devices within range of each other to discover and communicate in peer-to-peer fashion without involving central access points 11/9/201319Wi-Fi Technology

20 Ad-Hoc Wireless Network Diagram 11/9/201320Wi-Fi Technology

21 Bridging Mode Bridging mode allows two or more wireless access points (APs) to communicate with each for the purpose of joining multiple LANs. Wireless bridges support: – Point-to-Point – Point-to-Multipoint 11/9/201321Wi-Fi Technology

22 Bridging Mode Bridge modes: – Bridge-only – Bridge & Access Point APs in bridging mode discover each other via Media Access Control (MAC) addresses that must be set as configuration parameters. 11/9/201322Wi-Fi Technology

24 Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint Point-to-Point Point-to-Multipoint 11/9/201324Wi-Fi Technology

25 Repeater Mode Repeater mode is a variation on bridging. Rather than join multiple LANs, repeater mode is intended mainly to increase the range of a single wireless LAN by extending the same wireless signal. 11/9/201325Wi-Fi Technology

26 Repeater Wireless Network Diagram 11/9/201326Wi-Fi Technology

27 Positioning Guidelines 1.don't settle prematurely on a location 2.install the wireless access point or router in a central location 3.avoid physical obstructions 4.Avoid reflective surface 5.away from other home appliances that send wireless signals 6.install the unit away from electrical equipment 7.install a Wi-Fi repeater 11/9/201327Wi-Fi Technology
