    Going Wireless

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Technology moves at so rapid a pace that itís hard to keep up. These days itís all about high-speed connections, and many different companies vie for the right to provide your service. But somewhere in the midst of all this talk of broadband, DSL and high speed is yet another intriguing idea: wireless Internet. But what is this mysterious powerÖand how can you harness it for your computer-driven devices?

    What is Wireless Internet?

    Wireless Internet has actually been around for years, though right now itís becoming the latest thing for all the new computers being manufactured and sold. Cell phones have been equipped with wireless Internet for a while, but now you can free up your laptops and desktops from the hindrance of cords as well.

    Wireless Internet works the same way wireless phones do, which is by way of signals. Wireless Internet signals sent through the air are picked up by wireless devices, giving you the ability to surf the Web without plugging in. Wireless Internet is already out there for anyone to use, but not everyone knows how.

    How Does it Work?

    So, wireless Internet signals are whizzing through the air all the time? In a manner of speaking, yes. Because they are out there, anyone can use them. But wireless Internet is something that can be created and anyone can learn how to create wireless signals of their very own. Harnessing and creating these wireless waves isnít difficult at all, but it will take a few special tools.

    First, you need a computer. Both laptops and desktops can make use of wireless Internet, even those models that arenít pre-equipped to receive wireless signals. In order to enjoy a wireless Internet connection, you must first have some other form of high-speed Internet. Whether you receive this Internet through cable, DSL, broadband or some other means, you can convert yours to a wireless connection via a few steps.

    But how is it done? In order to go wireless, youíll need a special wireless router to go with your existing computer and Internet connection. This modem-like device will connect to your existing modem (be it cable, DSL, or broadband). The router takes the signal from your modem and sends it back out in a wireless signal to your computer. Unfortunately, enjoying a wireless connection isnít as easy as plugging everything in and signing online.
