Wireless LANs are popping up all over. Isn't it about time you kicked back and read up on what's inside? Either that or you'll be forced to actually believe the utterings of the next sales droid that have you cornered.

Jim Zyren and Al Petrick of the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance, have put together this immensely useful whitepaper. It sets out to explain just what happens on the OSI MAC and physical layer when you access The Dilbert Zone on your laptop during that numbingly boring meeting.

The whitepaper is in PDF-format, so you might want to download it directly off of the link here.
