Is a rogue access point simply an additional access point inserted into a network? Is it distinctly different from an access point which is trying to spoof another official access point?

Your question is rather vague and open ended per the faq. Is this question based on an actual problem you have? If so, please provide more details. – CharlieRB Dec 30 '11 at 20:44
Sorry. That sounded harsh. Not saying your question is not worth answering, it just doesn't seem you put much effort into researching yourself. Check this out. – CharlieRB Dec 30 '11 at 20:54

Rogue access points are setup by rogues; e.g., they are malicious. Fake access points are not the real access point for whatever reason; e.g., set up by a rogue or by an administrator as a honeypot.
