Server

A computer that provides its resources to other computers and devices on a network. These include print servers, Internet servers and data servers. A server can also be combined with a Hub, Switch and/or Router.

A Server is the central point of a Client/Server network. Peer-to-peer is another style of network that does not require a Server.

A wireless network that uses an Access Point is following the Client/Server style. An AP is a central resource that all wireless clients must connect to in order to "see" each other.
