routers are commonly used in the home. As well as providing routing and access point functions, they offer a network switch and often a firewall. The wireless counterpart of the NIC (see Sect. 2.1, as well as above in the current section) that is used on a wired computer is the radio—a wireless transmitter/receiver. For laptop computers, this is often a PC-card. PC-cards are built to Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) standards. For desktop computers, universal
