Question: What is infrastructure mode in wireless networking? Answer: Infrastructure mode wireless networking bridges (joins) a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network. Infrastructure mode wireless also supports central connection points for WLAN clients. A wireless access point (AP) is required for infrastructure mode wireless networking. To join the WLAN, the AP and all wireless clients must be configured to use the same SSID. The AP is then cabled to the wired network to allow wireless clients access to, for example, Internet connections 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. The disadvantage of infrastructure wireless networks is simply the additional cost to purchase AP hardware. Note that home wireless routers all feature a built-in AP to support infrastructure mode.

How to install my router for wireless internet on my laptop.


1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

2. Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.

3. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.

4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

5. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.

6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

7. Click on "Properties."

8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

12. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Thanks.
Have great day.

Hi. First things is you should have a wireless router there or you are at a certain hotspot where there is a free wireless internet access e.g Starbucks. Procedure below:

  • 1 Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.
  • 2 Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
  • 3 Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
  • 4 Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
  • 5 Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
  • 6 Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
  • 7 Click on "Properties."
  • 8 Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
  • 9 Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
  • 10 Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
  • 11 Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
  • 12 Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.
