Wireless LAN
 Introduction to Wireless LANs (The Wireless LAN Alliance (WLANA))
  Wireless LANs provide all the functionality of wired LANs, but without the physical constraints of the wire itself. Wireless LAN configurations include independent networks, offering peer-to-peer connectivity,and infrastructure networks, supporting fully distributed data communications. Point-to-point local-area wireless solutions, such as LAN-LAN bridging and personal-area networks (PANs), may overlap with some WLAN applications but fundamentally address different user needs. A wireless LAN-LAN bridge is an alternative to cable that connects LANs in two separate buildings. A wireless PAN typically covers the few feet surrounding a useršs work space and provides the ability to synchronize computers, transfer files, and gain access to local peripherals.
 Wireless Ethernet - a Glossary (WECA)
 WLANA - The Wireless LAN Alliance
  The Wireless LAN Alliance (WLANA) is a non-profit consortium of wireless LAN vendors established to help educate the market place about wireless LANs and their uses. WLANA develops educational materials about wireless LAN users' experiences, applications and industry trends.
