Infrastructure mode:

• Infrastructure mode is the most common mode to operate and is the factory default setting.

• Infrastructure mode is used when a PC is connected to a wireless access point or to a wireless router.

• If the hosts are connected to the network via a base station or an access point (fixed infrastructure), then the network is said to be operating in infrastructure mode.
