Wireless networks are rapidly becoming more popular and coming down in price. Since they don't require cables, you can use the devices anywhere in an office or home, even out on the patio. There's no need to roll out an Ethernet network cable to each room of a house; you can network anywhere -- without wires. Outside of the home, wireless networking is available in hotspots at coffee shops, businesses, airports -- great when you're on the road and need to get some work done. For convenience, wireless networking is the answer.
Basically, a standard is a set of specifications for a device. All devices that follow a specific standard share operating characteristics, such as the radio frequency used and maximum data transfer speed.

I have a WAP11 (and am purchasing a second for my work place), and out of the box it is a breeze to set up. I have a house separate from my garage/office, and running a wire between the two for internet access is impossible/prohibitive. I set up my WAP11 with my main network and was able to get a good signal with my laptop and my WPC11 (Linksys) PCMCIA card. However, the card orientation is not the best for longer distances.
Antenna orientation with these units is everything! On the farthest reaches of my garage (100 ft from the WAP) I received no signal. But, when I tilted my laptop on end (a bad typing position :-) ) suddenly I receive a 40% signal strength. I began to do a little research and talked with a couple of antenna manufacturers. The summation was that this unit is VERY extendable if you want to drop a little extra money on an antenna ... The antennas on the WAP11 are removable and a much more powerful antenna (with pigtail) can be added. However, I found this to be unnecessary. I went ahead and decided to try the WUSB11 (Linksys) and see if the "proper antenna orientation" thingy really was the trouble. Out of the box, it worked. Throughout my house, and out to the farthest reaches of my garage and beyond! I did find a couple of weak areas, but moving the WUSB11 (it is on a 6ft USB cable) around a bit got me the signal strength I desired.
The WAP11 comes with the unit (with two removable antennas, an important feature you don't find described anywhere, even in the LinkSys literature), a power supply, a CD-ROM with driver and installation software (really unbelievably easy setup, and please, please turn on the WEP feature!), and an easy-install guide.
As far as interference? I have a 2.4Ghz cordless phone and have yet to notice anything (jury is still out), but so far, so good.
Really a terrific unit for the price. Just be aware that there are limitations with the out-of-the-box unit and you will be fine. I definitely recommend this unit.
Although possibly outside the scope of this review, it may be worth mentioning that I'm very happy with the Linksys WMP11 PCI Wireless NIC that I bought as well. It has an actual real antenna that sticks out of the back of the PC and which can be adjusted to get the optimum signal strength. The only problem I had was with the Windows XP wireless networking setup utility doing battle with the utility provided with the one that shipped with the card. I suppose I could have let the Windows-provided utility handle the card but, in the end, I unchecked the box that allowed it to manage the card. This let me use the Linksys utility to handle the setup and things were smooth from then on. Signal strength is excellent - much better than from the SMC PCI card I'd been using earlier. Whether this was a function of having the antenna, rather than SMC's back plastic PC-card type protrusion, I don't know.
One more thing, Linksys makes easy work of updating drivers, utilities and firmware from its very well-organized web site. It's worth availing yourself of these updates.
