Help Me Choose: Wireless Routers and Networking
|With a wireless network, you are free to work where you want, how you want. Connect to the web, send email and connect printers, keyboards, mice and other devices to your computer without worrying about cable clutter. Even better, you can use the network to share files and media between computers, as well as back up your valuable data to external storage devices.|
|The central hub of your wireless network, the router is the connection through which all of your compatible devices communicate via a mobile broadband internet connection. You can share resources and files between computers, print and fax documents, and surf the web on your laptop anywhere within the router’s range as part of a local area network (LAN). A LAN allows for very high data transfer speed between devices within a small geographical area, all without cumbersome wires.|
Wireless G is the current standard but Wireless N is the next step up, with up to five times the speed of Wireless G and a larger signal range.
