1. Similar to Hubs and Switches Networking Devices which are used for connecting computers (Lan Card - Ethernet Port) physically wired to different Ethernet ports of Hubs and Switches with UTP cables, is it also possible to manufacture Wireless Hubs and Switches ?

Example :

i.e. A wireless LAN Ethernet Card connected to a Wireless 24 Port Ethernet Hub or Wireless 24 Port Ethernet Switch ?

2. Can Cascading possible also in Wireless Switches or Wireless Hubs ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi Prashant,

Thank you for your excellent and timely question.
The simple answer is yes...
The much more complex answer I would like to pass
you over to Cisco Systems who have a extensive Function
and Deployment document. I though it easier to point
you at this link rather than go over my character limit ;-)
