Abstract

The use of networks, especially wireless networks, has been constantly increasing for some years. The use of Wireless LAN was however so far limited to the installation of fixed Hot Spots, especially at airports or train stations. This article exemplifies the accomplished experiments with the use of Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b Standard in mobile systems, e.g. in driving cars. The most important result is, that slight optimisations of Wireless LAN components can achieve an acceptable communication up to at least 90 km/h.
