According to Google, this has been asked gazillion times before. But somehow I can't seem to wrap my mind around the concept, so please bear with me.
- Have laptop users access LAN resources through a wireless access point. Dynamic address allocation, authentication, and general merriment courtesy main server box (although a little WAP wouldn't hurt). AP plugs into hub; same subnet.
- Connect two ethernetted servers to wireless LAN--wirelessly. WLAN router serves a couple of clients already but resides at the far end of my living space. Again, same subnet; encryption mode is WEP.
AFAIK, scenario 1. calls for a wireless access point, whereas scenario 2. needs a wireless bridge (sitch, hub?). Am I right/wrong, and what are the finer points to watch out for?
Any input greatly appreciated.
