Wireless Internet

How does wireless internet work? 

Wireless internet transfers digital data using radio frequency. Wi-Fi is the leading wireless technology based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications. It allows a person with a Wi-Fi device, such as a laptop or personal digital assistant (PDA) to connect to the internet via access points (AP). The region covered by one or several access points is called a hotspot.

Wi-Fi is useful for business travelers who need to get access to the internet in cafés, hotels and airports. For home users, a wireless router can connect a group of Wi-Fi enabled devices (e.g. multiple computers) to an adjacent wired network (such as a DSL or cable modem) to establish home networking.

Wireless internet service providers offer Wi-Fi hotspot network in many locations. The users can get online with a broadband speed up to 100 times faster than dialup. Free Wi-Fi networks are also available in many municipalities providing free hotspots and hotzones but these open access points may pose great security risks to novice users.

1)  A network can be set up without cabling and wiring

2)  Economical networking solution

3)  Provides access to the internet in outdoor areas

3)  Wi-Fi network has limited range

4)  Overlapping access points can interfere signal transmission
