access pointOther Names: accesspoint, WAP
In computer networking, a wireless access point (WAP or AP) is a device that connects wireless communication devices together to form a wireless network. The WAP usually connects to a wired network, and can relay data between wireless devices and wired devices. Several WAPs can link together to form a larger network that allows "roaming". (In contrast, a network where the client devices manage themselves - without the need for any access points - becomes an ad-hoc network.) Wireless access points have IP addresses for configuration.
An Internet address, or URL, is the name of a site you want to connect to, such as xtra.co.nz. Also, an Internet address can be the address of someone you want to send email to, such as firstname.lastname@example.org. A typical address starts with a protocol name (such as ftp:// or http://) followed by the organisation that maintains the site; the suffix identifies the kind of organisation. For example, commercial site addresses often end with .com.
