AP
Last modified: Friday, January 16, 2004 

Short for Access Point, a hardware device or a computer's software that acts as a communication hub for users of a wireless device to connect to a wired LAN. APs are important for providing heightened wireless security and for extending the physical range of service a wireless user has access to.

Also see infrastructure mode and ad-hoc mode.

Also see the Wireless LAN Standards chart in the Quick Reference section of Webopedia.
