    Question Wireless Confusion??

    Im wondering if anyone out there can clear something up for me.

    Im struggling with coming to terms with the difference with RF encapsulation Wireless and the 802.11 Wireless standard.

    What are the differences in how the two are communicated (if any).

    Are the security risks exactly the same with the two, or are there different risks with each one.

    I apologise if my question is a bit vague, I understand the risks involved with Wireless technology as a whole, but dont quite understand the difference.

    Much appreciated.

    Have you searched the RFC index.

    http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfcsearch.html

    And are you asking about the differences between 802.11a and 802.11b?

    Sorry it's kind of ambiguous.
