The largest hurdle toward getting your wireless LAN (WLAN) up and running is the configuration of your access points (APs) and wireless clients. Chapter 5 of Cisco 802.11 Wireless Networking Quick Reference by Toby Velte and Anthony Velte explains how to install and configure APs. Before you install or configure an AP, you should first conduct a site survey. This chapter contains an exercise that shows you where the best -- and worst -- places are in your organization Wi-Fi reception. You use an AP and a client to conduct a site survey. Both the AP and client move around to various, temporary locations in an effort to find ideal placement.
