    Hi

    Consumers Entry Level Wireless Network (802.11x) consists of Computers
    Networked together while all or some of the Wires were replaced with
    Wireless Transmission (Like Network Walkie Talkies)

    Wireless LAN consists on two main components.
    1. Wireless Access Point (AP).
    The AP is the Main Transmitter/Receiver that mediates between your LAN, and
    the Wireless computers. It usually can support an excess of 100 clients.
    Since the AP is in part a replacement to CAT5 cable, depending on your
    Network the AP can be configured on any regular network R-45 connection,
    i.e. computer's NIC, Hub/Switch, or a regular port on a Cable/DSL Router.
    2. Wireless Client Card.
    Wireless Client Card is the LAN card that you should install on each one
    your network computers, that you want to be Wireless.

    The most common consumer Wireless Hardware is the Wireless cable/DSL Router
    which is Combo Unit of Cable/DSL Router that includes an Access Point, all
    in the same box.

    P.S. WIFI per-se is a term related to the certification of the Wireless
    Equipment. It is not related to the actual use or the technology.
