are there any wireless routers?

By dickyxone ·
Routers are known for routing the IP address to the specific device in the network connected together in LAN or in the Internet,and this router connected with other devices by cables in which these cables are where the routers passes signals or packets to the destination address.So my question is that,how these packets can be transimitted in wireless form? or there should no need to have routers for routing IP address,since the source address can send direct the signals to the destination address without throughing to the routers.

Can you clarify your question or provide an example? I'm not sure I get the gist of your question.

The "router" part of the common SOHO wireless routers you thinking of refers to the NAT router to the Internet, not to the small internal segment it creates. As to "source address can send direct the signals to the destination address without throughing to the routers" the wireless cards on the LT go through the wireless "router" hub and back out wireless to their destination, or wired, or through another router etc.

Think packets, not addresses. When you have a packet you want sent somewhere. When you want to get to a resource not on your physical segment, a router helps it get to its next segment.

Where have you been hiding??? There are tons of them for just about anything you might have in mind but beware of some problems in high-rise offices where there is a lot of EMF interference or signal intrference from metal structural components. The standards you should be looking at are 802.11a/g and/or Bluetooth. Hope this helps.
