Wireless Network FAQ
Before contacting a local computer technician to service or set-up a network, many callers and customers just like you have initial questions. Here are some of the most common questions we receive in the field and our answers–from Mobile PC Medics to you.
» What kind of wireless network do I have?
Most of the time, you can tell what kind of network you’re running by looking at the router. However, if you’re having trouble locating your router or identifying your type of wireless network, don’t hesitate to contact your local computer expert for help. Also, keep in mind that there are three different types of wireless networks, including: WAN, LAN, and PAN.
» How does my wireless network work?
Wireless technology uses an adapter that converts data into radio signals and then transmits these signals through the use of an antenna. Next, a wireless router receives the signal and decodes it, and the information is transferred through a wired Ethernet connection to the internet.
» Is WiFi a wireless network?
Famously used by smartphones, Wi-Fi is the name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide high-speed Internet and network connections to digital devices.
» Can my WiFi signal travel through walls?
More often than not, Wi-Fi signals are capable of passing through walls and other structural obstacles with ease. However, thicker walls and reinforced concrete are known to block or weaken WiFi signals. When it comes to setting up a new wireless network, keep in mind that WiFi is best suited for structures that incorporate drywall, plywood, and glass for optimal signal and performance.
» Is WiFi slower than wired ethernet?
In more recent years, WiFi technology has come a long way, so that it is fast enough for consumer demands. However, Ethernet tends to perform only slightly quicker than a wireless connection due to its utilization of cables. Wireless connections might be slower at times, but will provide more convenience when it comes to installing it and using it within range.
