Wireless networks have long been hailed as easily deployed, low-cost solutions for providing broadband services to an increasingly mobile population. As with any emerging technology, however, it wasn't long before attackers were exploiting it. The popular version of wireless networking, known as WiFi, revolutionized the ways that both small home-offices and larger facilities work, making it trivial to extend bandwidth into areas where it was impractical or too expensive to run Ethernet cable. For a while it seemed as if WiFi offered instantly deployable, easily configurable, and most importantly mobile communications to the masses.

Ethernet is dead. Long live the Ethernet. As for WiMax... is still in a more like a beta-testing period
