rogue access point
Last modified: Monday, March 20, 2006 

A rogue access point, also called rogue AP, is any Wi-Fi access point that is installed on a network but is not authorized for operation on that network, and is not under the management of  the network administrator. Rogue access points often do not conform to wireless LAN (WLAN) security policies, and additionally can allow anyone with a Wi-Fi device to connect to your network.

See also access point (AP).
Also see the Wireless Networking Standards chart in the Quick Reference section of Webopedia.
