Wireless Local Area Network VLAN Investigation and Enhancement Using Routing Algorithms
Wireless LANs (WLANs) are vulnerable and witnessed numerous types of threats. These can be avoided via several security technologies such as WEP, 802.11i and WPA. These technologies have draw backs on performance and an alternative approaches that might have less impact on performance is the Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN). The paper introduces the integration of VLAN into WLAN system. The use of VLAN will provide the security to the system by isolating the access and grouped in such away that avoid any group from accessing unauthorized station in other group.
