Wireless networking is a method by which telecommunications networks and enterprise (business) installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations. A wireless network is any type of computer network that uses wireless data connections for connecting network nodes.

Wireless networking is a method by which telecommunications networks and enterprise (business) installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations. Wireless telecommunications networks are generally implemented and administered using radio communication. This implementation takes place at the physical level of the OSI model network structure.

In the case of wireless networking in Infrastructure mode you are connecting your devices using a central device, namely a wireless access point (AP). To join the WLAN, the AP, all wireless clients must be configured to use the same SSID (Service Set Identifier). The AP is then cabled to the wired network to allow wireless clients access (e.g. cameras or printers).

Additional APs can be added to the WLAN to increase the reach of the infrastructure and support any number of wireless clients.

Compared to the alternative (ad-hoc wireless networks), infrastructure mode networks offer the advantage of scalability, centralized security management and improved reach. As opposed to Ad-Hoc mode networks, which make wireless connections directly between computers, Infrastructure mode wireless networks, use networking infrastructure. In this case, infrastructure refers to switches, routers, firewalls, and access points (APs).
