Wireless: Connecting Your Computers in a Network
Connecting your computers together to form a Network is easier than ever. Check out the array of networking products to choose from!
If you've had reservations about networking your computers together, wait no more! There's more than one way to network your computers together.
Maybe the thought of wires or cables have been holding you back? Then check out the new improved wireless networking systems available!
The big advantage of wireless networking - also known as WiFi - is that it does not require any cabling to connect your computers throughout your home or office. WiFi uses radio signals to communicate, and today's equipment will let you run your network at super-fast speeds.
When referring to WiFi you'll notice a number popping up: 802.11. Sometimes this is followed by a letter: a, b or g. The number originates from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) which sets standards and the standard covering wireless networks was assigned the number 802.11. The letters that follow identify different protocols/speeds. 802.11b was first, and at 11 megabits per second is the slowest, although the least expensive. 802.11a came next. It operates at the 5 GHz range (802.11b at 2.4 GHz) and has a data transfer rate of up to 54 megabits per second. The last one certified is 802.11g, which basically is a mix of 802.11a and 802.11b: running at 2.4 GHz, but with 54 megabits per second speed. This is currently the most popular version.
If installation without running new wires or cables is an important factor for your network, consider using your existing phone lines. Intel AnyPoint Phoneline Home Network rates extremely high on reviewers' performance charts.
Installation is as easy as plugging a line into an existing phone jack after you've installed a card into an open PCI slot of your computer. Data transmission is 10Mbps with Intel's new Intel AnyPoint Phoneline Home Networking Solution. (Owners of the older Intel AnyPoint Phoneline Home Network with data transmitted at 1Mbps can easily upgrade to 10Mbps with the purchase of the new 10Mbps PCI card.)
Intel AnyPoint Home Network comes in USB models for taking advantage of that speedier USB. You must still install a PCI card into your system with the USB Intel AnyPoint Home Network.
For eager-to-network users, who don't want to open up their computer's case at all, there are USB networking solutions called USB Direct Connect and Entrega's USBnet. This is by far the simplest networking type of system to install. Just plug it into each computer's USB port and install the bundled software.
The ultimate choice for speed and economy together in one package would be networking your computers with an Ethernet/Fast Ethernet system. You will have to figure out how to co-exist with those wires or cables running from computer to hub to computer, and... network-speak is coming up again.
So, have you selected your product for networking yet? With sufficient funds, the wireless networking systems sure seem attractive.
