Hosts check the wire for activity before attempting to send; if a collision happens, they wait a random time period before attempting to send again.

When do you need to use a wireless access point?

It's best to use a wireless access point whenever the cost of running Ethernet is either too expensive, or inapplicable to certain settings. For example, if you worked in an office building that had false ceilings, it would be somewhat easy to have someone come in and run Ethernet. However, if you worked in a warehouse that is constantly re-utilizing it's space, it is unlikely that running Ethernet would be a good investment. Thus a wireless access point, or several access points would be used instead.
