comment Which layer of network stack does access point operate?
Thanks. WHy doesn't a AP operate just in layer 1 but in 2? A link it says "In a sense, it's very much like a hub in that it pays no attention to the data that crosses it - it simply sends everything that it receives on a wired connection to the wireless transmitter and everything that it receives wirelessly is sent to the wired connection." The book says hub operates in layer 1.

@heavyd: Thanks. Is the following a necessary condition for being a network: in a network, must every connected machine be assigned an internal IP?

Is 192.168.0.2 in my internal network or in the external network (i.e. the Internet) or some intermediate network?

comment Relation between wireless network's frequency, speed, and range?
Do you call the freq range from 2.412GHz to 2.462GHz (offered as channel options in my router) "a 2.4GHz spec"?

comment Relation between wireless network's frequency, speed, and range?
" if an N router is configured for B/G/N it will only operate in 2.4GHz. Most routers can only operate at one frequency for all connections, so if you allow a 2.4GHz spec on your network, then it has to run everything at 2.4." My router is G router (supports G, B and their mix). Its channel options vary from channel 1 (2.412GHz) to 11 (2.462GHz), doesn't it not just operate on one frequency?

Thanks. (1) My router is linksys WRT54GL. Its options for channel are 1 (2.412GHz) to 11 (2.462GHz). Does it mean that the router will not create a wireless network with 5GHz? (2) My router supports "Mixed", "B-only" and "G-only" network mode. Is 5GHz only supported by 802.11a, not by 802.11b or 802.11g?
