Abstract

While conventional wisdom has it that Wireless Access Points are strictly Layer 2 bridges, such devices today perform some higher layer functions of routers or switches in wired Infrastructure in addition to bridging the wired and wireless networks. For example, in 802.11 networks, Access Points can function as Network Access Servers. For this reason, Access Points have IP addresses and can function as IP devices.
