Over the years, Wi-Fi implementations have moved toward thin access-points, with more of the network intelligence packed in a centralized network appliance, and making individual access-points mere “plug-in points”. Wi-Fi technology is now spread widely within business and industrial sites, who usually prefer a large number of Wi-Fi access-points for redundancy, support for fast roaming and increased overall network-capacity by using more channels or by defining smaller cells. Wi-Fi also enables wireless voice-applications.
Agent Peterson of the Geek Squad at Zdnet explains how to choose the right equipment and set up a wireless network at home.
- The main thing is to know which devices you have at home, which can help you choose theright technology.
- Cordless and Microphones create network interference.
- Bathroom and Kitchen create locational interference because of the large amount of metal used.
- Wireless range expander is a very handy solution.
