Administering Wireless Networks in Oracle Solaris

This chapter includes tasks for administering wireless networks in the Oracle Solaris release.

The IEEE 802.11 specifications define wireless communications for local area networks. These specifications and the networks they describe are referred to collectively as WiFi, a term that is trademarked by the Wi-Fi Alliance trade group. WiFi networks are reasonably easy to configure by both providers and prospective clients. Therefore, they are increasingly popular and in common use throughout the world. WiFi networks use the same radio wave technology as cellular phones, televisions, and radios.

Note -  Oracle Solaris does not contain features for configuring WiFi servers or access points.
