Chapter 5. Configuring Wireless Access Points > Setting Up a Wireless Network

5.1. Setting Up a Wireless Network

The cost for setting up a wireless network has, over the years, been lowered substantially. Today, you can easily set up a wireless network at home for about $200. For that amount, you can get a wireless access point, a wireless PC card (for your notebook), and a USB wireless adapter (for your desktop).

In this section, I am assuming you want your wireless users to access the Internet. If your aim is to simply connect two machines wirelessly, you do not need a DSL/ADSL modem and wireless access point. All you need is a wireless adapter or card for each computer. See Section 5.5 later in this chapter.
