distance or range of your wireless connection can vary significantly
depending on the physical placement of your router. @or e!ample, the
thickness and number of walls the wireless signal passes through can limit
the range. @or best results, place your router%
E -ear the center of the area where your computers and other devices
operate, and preferably within line of sight to your wireless devices.
E So it is accessible to an AC power outlet and near +thernet cables for
wired computers.
E $n an elevated location such as a high shelf, keeping the number of
walls and ceilings between the router and your other devices to a
minimum.

interference. +Fuipment that might cause interference includes ceiling
fans, home security systems, microwaves, (Cs, the base of a cordless

Channel
A communication channel, also known as channel, refers either to a
physical transmission medium such as a wire or to a logical connection
over a multiple!ed medium such as a radio channel. $t is used to
transfer an information signal, such as a digital bit stream, from one
or more transmitters to one or more receivers. $f there is only one A(
in the range, select any channel you like. The default is A6to.
$f there are several A(s coe!isting in the same area, it is advisable that
you select a different channel for each A( to operate on, minimizing the
interference between neighboring A(s. @or e!ample, if 4 AmericanB
standard A(s coe!ist in one area, you can set their channels
respectively to ', = and '' to avoid mutual interference.

running on the client that provides credentials to the authenticator. The
authenticator is a network device, such as an +thernet switch or

running software supporting the 1A6$"S and +A( protocols. The

The 6omain -ame System C6-SD is a hierarchical distributed naming
system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the
$nternet or a private network. $t associates various information with
domain names assigned to each of the participating entities. A 6omain
-ame Service resolves Fueries for these names into $( addresses for
the purpose of locating computer services and devices worldwide. An
oftenBused analogy to e!plain the 6omain -ame System is that it
77

serves as the phone book for the $nternet by translating humanB
friendly computer hostnames into $( addresses.
'#S
A wireless distribution system C6SD is a system enabling the wireless
interconnection of access points in an $+++ 9>/.'' network. $t allows a
wireless network to be e!panded using multiple access points without
the traditional reFuirement for a wired backbone to link them. All base
stations in a wireless distribution system must be configured to use
the same radio channel, method of encryption Cnone, +(, or (AD
and the same encryption keys. They may be configured to different
service set identifiers. 6S also reFuires every base station to be
configured to forward to others in the system. 6S may also be
considered a repeater mode because it appears to bridge and accept
wireless clients at the same time Cunlike traditional bridgingD.6S
may be incompatible between different products Ceven occasionally
from the same vendorD since it is not certified by the iB@i Alliance.
6S may provide two modes of wireless A(BtoBA( connectivity%

$n computer security, a 67A Csometimes referred to as a perimeter
networkingD is a physical or logical subnetwork that contains and
e!poses an organizationJs e!ternalBfacing services to a larger
untrusted network, usually the $nternet. The purpose of a 67A is to
add an additional layer of security to an organizationJs local area
network CLA-D# an e!ternal attacker only has access to eFuipment in
the 67A, rather than any other part of the network. 3osts in the 67A
have limited connectivity to specific hosts in the internal network,
although communication with other hosts in the 67A and to the
e!ternal network is allowed. This allows hosts in the 67A to provide
services to both the internal and e!ternal network, while an
intervening firewall controls the traffic between the 67A servers and
the internal network clients. Any services such as eb servers, 7ail
servers, @T( servers and ;o$( servers, etc. that are being provided to
users on the e!ternal network can be placed in the 67A.
