Wireless local area network is a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet, uses ethernet protocol.
In simple word allow you to surf internet without any internet cable connection, Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone or digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points called hotspots, can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.
In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.
<p>One of the most useful features of the iPod Touch is the
ability to use the Internet through a WiFi connection if you have a wireless
home network and within range of your router, you can access the Internet via
your iPod with ease. If you're in public, you can use the free wireless
internet businesses such as hotels, cafes and airports. If you are not in a
Wi-Fi zone, will warn you that your iPod will not be able to get online. When
this happens, then you need to move to an area that has Wi-Fi <br />
<p>1. Confirm your wireless connection is configured correctly
by checking if you can get online on your home computer. If your router is not
configured correctly, you will not be able to use their access to Wi-Fi with
your iPod. <br />
<p>2. Go to a place where you know Wi-Fi is available. In urban
areas, Wi-Fi is available in many businesses and families. Press the
"Settings" icon on your iPod, click on "Wi-Fi" to search
for available networks in the area. If there are none that appear, confirming
the Wi-Fi icon at the top of the page is set to "On" instead of
"Off". If no network can see, you're in an area where there is Wi-Fi
available. <br />
<p>3. Click the name of an available Wi-Fi network and enter
the correct password. Sometimes you may not be able to access the network,
because you do not have the password. While companies such as pubs and hotels
to their networks without protection for the enjoyment of their patrons are
usually password protected networks. <br />
<p>IPod touch not only offers a music library on the road. It

wi-fi is off, or if you activate it, you can do it using the Settings window. <br />
<p>1. Touch the "Settings" icon on the main screen of
the iPod touch. <br />
<p>2. Touch the option marked "Wi-Fi." <br />
<p>3. Touch the "On" next to the setting marked

<p>4. Tap a wireless network list to connect. <br />
As far as I know, some N300 series PDAs have a built-in Wi-Fi card. If this is your case, gather your Wi-Fi router's (or the one you want to connect your PDA to) SSID and encryption informations, go to 'Start > Settings > Connections tab > Wi-Fi' and tap 'Search for Networks'. After a while, the available WLAN should appear on screen. Select yours, fill in the required informations, and, after a while it should get connected. Otherwise (i.e., if your PDA is not Wi-Fi enabled), you will still be able to connect to the internet whenever it is connected to your PC (which should be on-line, of course).
Anyway, if you happens to miss your device's user guide, feel free to download it from this location.
Just my 2 cents...

Start out by bringing up the cube, but this time press the Comm Manager button and then press the WLAN button. This will turn on the Wi-Fi “radio” inside your phone. If you are within range of a Wi-Fi signal (your home network perhaps) a wizard will pop up on the bottom of the screen indicating wireless networks that are within range and it asks you to “Select a network to connect to:”. These are “access points”, or commonly referred to as “hotspots”. Chances are there will be more than one so simply tap on the name of the one that is available to you and that you know the password for if necessary. The next window will ask you to select if the access point/hotspot you selected connects to the internet or to “Work”. “Work” indicates a private network, so chances are you will want to tap on “the internet” as your choice. If the network you chose is “security enabled” you will be asked to enter the “key” (password), then press “connect”. If it is not a secure network, do not enter anything and just press “connect”. Look at the top of your screen and notice the Wi-Fi status indicator. When the arrows stop being animated and the little tower icon has a solid circle around the top part you are connected to the network and ready to surf. The next time you are within range of this network you will be able to connect automatically within seconds of turning on Wi-Fi in the Comm Manager. You only have to go through this setup procedure each time you connect to a new network for the first time. Once you have connected to a Wi-Fi network, the settings will be saved and you can see/edit/delete these settings by tapping on the soft menu labeled “Settings” from the Comm Manager page. Choose “Wireless LAN” then press the left soft button labeled “Menu” and choose “Wi-Fi”. There you will see the network names that are available to you now, or that you connected to in the past. If you will not be using a particular network again you can delete it by either pressing directly on the name of it long enough to bring up a menu that has “remove settings” as a choice or by highlighting the one you want to delete and then pressing the right soft button labeled “Menu” and choosing “Remove Settings”.
Once you are connected, press Comm Manager’s left soft button labeled “Exit” or tap the “X” in the upper right-hand corner then bring up the cube and press the “Internet Explorer” button. Then you can go to whatever web page you want.
This can get kind of complicated, and your wireless carrier may block this depending on the data plan. It's also different for the MC7095 (CDMA) and MC7094 (GSM/GPRS) models. You may also want to see if your device BSP release is up-to-date.
Here is some basic info for the MC7095 (Sprint):
Device was not connected to network to start.
Went to Start, Programs, Internet Sharing, tapped Connect, showed Status: Check USB connection. Internet Sharing drivers were installed on laptop computer, then device displayed Internet Sharing Status "Connected". We were able to browse the web on the laptop computer. Closed out of Internet Sharing (tap X on upper right hand corner). On device, tapped Start, Internet Explorer, attempted to browse to a webpage. Able to browse on both laptop computer and MC7095 device.
Note: Attempted to Disconnect the Internet Sharing session, unable to. The device does not appear to respond to the "Disconnect" option on bottom left of screen. When tapping "Disconnect" the option light up as if being tapped however the device itself shows no other changes and Status still displays :Connected. ***FYI*** In testing with a different MC7095 (BSP33) we experienced the same issues with not being able to "Disconnect" the Internet Sharing session.
I have the same problem. I have a router and WLAN in my house. I actually connect to the network, the pocket PC says the strenght of the connection is Excellent, even green connection bars, in the right-bottom corner are visible.. But when I try to ping any other computer connected to the network it says NO RESPONSE, not mentioning being unable to surf the net with browser. However, i recall that if you have some wierd kind of encryption, ie. WEP, or WPA or some other - some devices can have problems connectiong to the router(access point). Please somebody comment on what i've mentioned.
