Process of setting up a wireless network
What is the process of setting up a wireless network?
A wireless network provides improved flexibility and mobility. Desktops, laptops and other devices linked to a wireless network can connect to the network, either at home or office. You can share files, devices like printers and an Internet connection using a wireless network. Wireless networks get rid of the problem of extensive cabling. In order to set up a wireless connection, you need to evaluate your requirements. First of all, you need to make a list of all devices needed for generating a wireless network. These comprise of wireless routers, wireless network adapters and nodes, switches or hubs, cable modem, wireless LAN cards for desktops and laptops, antennas, amplifiers, firewalls, wireless bridges and cables. Nowadays, three types of wireless network technologies are commonly used. They are 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g.
Given below are the tips to set-up a wireless network:
- Connect your broadband modem
- Connect wireless router with the computers
- Connect all computers in the network
Connect your broadband modem
The first thing you have to consider for setting up a wireless network is regarding the modem. A modem is one of the main hardware devices that can ensure a proper network. You can attach your broadband modem to the wireless router. Then, you can attach the modem with the router using a cord.
Connect wireless router with the computers
You can attach a wireless router to the systems. If your systems have wireless LAN cards, you can install them to communicate directly with the wireless router. If there are no wireless LAN cards, you require a wireless network adapter per system. In those cases, the wireless router will communicate with the wireless network adapter that in turn will be connected to each system. You can also use USB network adapters. They can be connected to computers using a USB port.
Connect all the systems in the network to each other. If your system consists of wireless LAN cards, you can set them up to communicate directly with each other.
