    I'm a bit tight on time too today, so i'll go with A, but only because i hazard a guess that the B in BSS might stand for 'Basic'...

    I was wrong yesterday so why break the trend? :)

    Time's up. Correct answer is C. IBSS stands for independent basic service set. BSS or basic service set describes a basic set up using one AP connected to a wired LAN. IBSS uses an ad hoc WLAN networking scheme where no AP is involved. The wireless NICs in each laptop or PC communicate directly with each other. This is only practical for small WLANs with just a few nodes. It's sort of the wireless equivalent of two PCs connecting through a crossover cable (no hub or switch).

    More tomorrow.
