as beacons, which are broadcasted every 100ms. These beacons are transmitted at 1Mbps, and are moderately short, and therefore are not of influence on its performance.
||A typical WiFi setup contains one or several access points (APs) and one or several clients. At AP broadcasts its service set identifier, network name (SSID) via packets that are known
The WiFi standard leaves connection criteria and roaming entirely open to the users needs. This also means that one wireless adapter may perform substantially better than the other.
Even collisions can therefore look like non-switched Ethernet LAN’s ( Local Area Network).
|In the future wireless cards will be more and more controllable by the operating system. WiFi transmits in the air will have the same properties as a non-switched Ethernet network.
