The ability to access networked resources, both computational and information, form mobile client will become increasingly importance in the emerging pervasive computing scenario. There is significant ongoing work in the research community in this area. The objective of this paper is to argue that an agent oriented approach can be used to create systems to enable the goal of ubiquitous access. We show example from existing work, including our own, where an agent abstraction has been used. We also outline our ongoing work to use a multi agent approach to enable the next generation , ad-hoc network based mobile applications.
