PhotobucketWireless Local Area Network is similar to the LAN network, but each node not on the WLAN using wireless devices to connect to the network ith. node in the WLAN using the same frequency channel and SSID that shows the identity of the wireless devices.
Unlike cable networks, wireless networks have two modes that can be used: infastruktur and Ad-Hoc. Configuration infrastructure is the communication between each PC via a WLAN access point or LAN on.
Ad-Hoc communication is direct communication between each computer using wireless devices. The use of these two modes depending on the need to share data or other needs with the wired network.


A. Ad-Hoc Mode
Ad-Hoc network mode WLAN is a very simple, because the ad-hoc does not require access point for the host can interact with each other. Each host has a wireless transmitter and receiver to communicate directly with each other as shown in Figure 1. Disadvantages of this mode is the computer can not communicate with computers on the network using a cable. In addition, the range in this mode is limited to the distance between the two computer.

B. Infrastructure Mode
If the computer on a wireless network to access a wired network or shared printer for example, the wireless network must use the infrastructure mode.
In access point mode functioning infrastructure to serve the main communication on wireless networks. Access point transmits data to a PC with a certain range in an area. The addition and location of access point settings can expand the reach of the WLAN.

a. Component-WLAN Components

There are four main components in WLAN, namely:

1. Access Point, a device that became the central connections of the user (the user) to the ISP, or from branch offices to headquarters if the network is owned by a company. Access-Point functions convert radio frequency signals (RF) into digital signals that will be distributed via cable, or channeled to other WLAN devices to be converted back into radio frequency signals.

2.Wireless LAN Interface, is the equipment installed in the Mobile / Desktop PC, developed equipment that mass is in the form of PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) card, a PCI card or via USB port (Universal Serial Bus).

3. Mobile / Desktop PCs, is access to a user device, mobile PCs in general have been installed while the PCMCIA port of a desktop PC must be added the wireless adapter through the PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) card or a USB (Universal Serial Bus).

4. External antenna (optional) is used to strengthen the transmit power. This antenna can be assembled by the user. example: antenna cans.

Relatively Access-Point device is able to accommodate several hundreds of users simultaneously. Some vendors recommend only a dozen to about 40 of the user for an Access Point. Although his theory can accommodate this device a lot but it will happen declining performance due to RF signal itself and the power Access Point operating system.
Logic components of the Access Point are the ESSID (Extended Service Set Identification) which is the IEEE 802.11 standard. Users must connect the wireless adapter to the Access Point with a particular ESSID so that data transfer can occur. ESSID become standard authentication in wireless communications. In terms of security of some specific vendors to make certain authentication key for authentication of the client process to the Access Point.

This security aspect Rawannya makes IEEE Wireless encryption standard issued Protocol (WEP), an existing application in any PCMCIA card. WEP is working to encrypt data before it is transferred to the radio signal requency (RF), and to decrypt the data from RF signals.

11.4. Experiment steps
Infrastructure Mode
To make communication 2 or more computers in the Infrastructure mode, all computers will be connected to a wireless network must have a wireless
Laptop adapter or to maintain facilities and Wi-Fi Access Point. Here are the installation steps and configuration:

11.4.1 Configuring the Access Point
