First and foremost, praise be to Allah, for enabling us to complete our Wireless Community Project without many difficulties. Special thanks and appreciation is given to our supervisor, for whom we are deeply interested, Cik Rashidah Bt Rawi, for her advice, criticism, guidance and brilliant ideas during the implementation of this project.

We also would like to express our gratitude to our beloved family for their encouragement, patience, support, financial support and sacrifice they have given us during the implementation of project.
