wireless router


A wireless router is a wireless device that connects one computer or a whole network to another computer or network. It is possible to have a wireless network in your home or office.

You will definitely come across wireless networks at most international airports. A wireless network is powered by a wireless router, which is responsible for sending information from one computer to another.

The router will help you to share a single Internet connection between two or more computers, which can be on the same floor or even on different floors.

It is necessary that you take a look at different models of wireless routers and check their specifications. Companies like D-Link have come out with some excellent high-performance wireless routers. Some other companies manufacturing wireless routers are Linksys, NETGEAR, and Belkin. Routers from these companies have excellent performance ratings.

Re: what is a wireless router

A wireless router is amongst a wide range of devices used to transfer data from one or more computers to other machines included in the same communication networks. These networks include the Internet as well as other Intranet networks such as the metropolitan area network (MAN), the local area network (LAN), and the wide area network (WAN).

A wireless router can provide data transference systems to computers included in such networks without the use of wires or cables. Most people often consider wireless routers as data transference devices that can only be used for computers within WiFi hotspots. This is a common misconception since wireless routers can be used for data transference systems to be conducted between computers included in the other types of networks (MAN, LAN, and Wan).

The first wireless router type was designed for the purpose of connecting machines within a single household or a small coverage area. Since this wireless router type is built for short distance ranges, you can place multiple routers all over the house. This will bolster the efficiency of your wireless local area network and thus make your home a small WiFi zone. It lets you access the Internet remotely or within the coverage of the wireless router. It will provide the machines within the wireless area network or within the coverage of the wireless router with the capability to connect multiple computers to the Internet and also conduct data transference activities between each other. The computers should be within the range of the router.

Re: what is a wireless router

A wireless router is a wireless device that connects one computer or a whole network to another computer or network.

There are 2 types of wireless routers, each with a different type of application.

* The first wireless router type was designed for the purpose of connecting machines within a single household or a small coverage area. Since this wireless router type is built for short distance ranges, you can place multiple routers all over the house. This will bolster the efficiency of your wireless local area network and thus make your home a small WiFi zone. It lets you access the Internet remotely or within the coverage of the wireless router. It will provide the machines within the wireless area network or within the coverage of the wireless router with the capability to connect multiple computers to the Internet and also conduct data transference activities between each other. The computers should be within the range of the router.

* The second wireless router type was created for office or enterprise purposes. Although the same rules apply on the creation of wireless networks for both household and office applications, this wireless router type is generally more powerful compared to the first wireless router type mentioned above. The difference of this wireless router type from the household wireless router type is its range or coverage. Logically, wireless routers built for office applications have wider coverage, but small networks can make use of multiple wireless router types built for small coverage networks in order to widen the coverage of the wireless network.
