    1.0 INTRODUCTION LAN (Local Area Network) is a connection that connected computer in certain area like school, laboratory, or office building. LANs usually connect workstations and personal computers. Each computer or called ‘node’ could access data anywhere on the LAN. For example, we could share network printer in the LAN computer network. LAN also used as a communication tool for user to communicate each other in the range of the network. 2.0 PROBLEM STATEMENT In a small LAN which consist of

    Wireless Area Networks Wireless technology has become an increasingly crucial part of today's world. From health care and retail to academia across the world, wireless systems are improving the rate and ease with which data is sent and received. Two specific examples of the wireless technology used today personally and professionally are local area networks (LAN) and personal area networks (PAN). A wireless local area network, or LAN is a flexible data communications system implemented

    Local Area Network A local Area Network (LAN) is a type of network typically used and connected in a small area, for instance, home, office, school or groups of building, in order to communicate with one another and share resource, such as printer or scanner. Those devices could be connected between each other by wired cable or wireless links, which is typically used as a standard LAN technology called IEEE 802.11. Usually, a local area network consists of computers and peripheral devices connected

    Introduction A Wide Area Network is geographically dispersed telecommunication network. The term distinguishes a broader telecommunication structure from a local area network. Wide area network may be privately owned or rented, but the term usually connotes the inclusion of public network. An intermediate form of network in terms of geography is a metropolitan area network. WAN is communication network that are regional or worldwide in geographic area, with a minimum distance typical of that between

    Local area networks (LANs). DEFINITION The concept of local area networks (LANs) is not new. It represents a logical development of computer technology. With the advent of microcomputers in the 1980s many office workers began bringing their own disks into work, compromising data integrity. They also began keeping their own databases, which companies did not like. The answer was to create a computer network. A computer network is a group of computers connected together enabling users

    Overview A wireless Local Area Network (LAN) is a moderate to high-speed flexible data communications system implemented as an extension to, or as an alternative for, a wired Local Area Network (Kolawole, 2014). In wireless LAN transmission making use of radio frequency to communicate over the air eliminates or at least minimizes the use of physically wired networks. From the beginning, IEEE 802.11 was designed to look and feel like IEEE 802 wired networks to include supporting all of the protocols
