Chapter 14. Configuring Your Wi-Fi Network > Troubleshooting a Network

Troubleshooting a Network

Most of the time, if you are deploying a simple Wi-Fi network such as the infrastructure style network described in Chapter 13 or a one-to-one ad hoc network such as the one explained so far in this chapter, you won't have any problems setting up a network. But sometimes networks go bad.

What Does It Mean for a Network to Go Bad?

You know that you are having network problems when… one or more nodes on the networks stop being capable of “seeing” other nodes on the network, or some (or all) of the nodes on the network stop being capable of accessing the Internet.
