Executive Summary

In a little more than a decade, wireless has grown from an obscure and expensive curiosity into a practical and affordable networking technology. Today's most common wireless standard is 802.11g Ethernet, also often called Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity). 802.11g is fast enough to be practical and affordable enough for home networks, and the new 802.11n standard is coming on strong. The convenience of wireless is appealing - one doesn't have to deal with running cable, and one can move computers anywhere one want and still be connected to the network. Wireless is especially suited for use with laptop or notebook computers, offering users great freedom of movement.
