    Time's up. The group has it. Correct answer is D. WLANs can't "hear" a collision when it occurs so CSMA/CD is out. CSMA/CA or Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Avoidance (as opposed to Colllision Detection) is used to broadcast a signal prior to transmitting the actual data. These signals add to WLAN network overhead, though.

    Obviously, I'm being much too easy on you. More tomorrow.
