802.11 WIRELESS LANs AND CSMA/CA:

 IEEE 802.11 is standard wireless LAN that needs radio signals at 2.4GHz. Its speed is 11Mbps. The older computers use radio signals at data rate of 2Mbps and 900MHz. Bluetooth specifies a wireless LAN for short places. It needs shared medium and radio signals instead of coaxial cable.

LIMITED CONNECTIVITY WITH WIRELESS:

 In contrast with wired LANs, not all methods can be able to reach each other.Because:

  • It has low signal power.
  • In wireless LANs the propagation is stopped by walls etc.
  • It can't relay on CD to avoid interference because not all participants can hear.

This is given in the figure below:
