Nowadays wireless networks are the very useful source of networking in the field of computer networking of the present era. There are different types of technologies that are used in the past that can operate with the help of wires but they cannot provide the faster networking to the user. However, after lots of researches and the modern theories these networks become wireless called as wireless networks. The network that is required for networking purpose with the help of different types of wireless devices is referred to as wireless network such as Wireless LAN or WiFi. People use wireless networks widely because they provide the long-range working without the hassle ness of the cables. As wireless networks has lots of important aspects in the field of networking it also have some disadvantages such has sometimes it can provide the secure networking and it is very easy to break the security of some types of wireless networks
Types of Wireless networks
Wireless networks are categorized into three basic types that are almost used in every configuration of the networks wirelessly. These types are as follows
- Wide Area Network (WAN)
- Local Area Network (LAN)
- Personal Area Network (PAN).
How to Setup Wireless network:
To configure the wireless network on your personal computer we need different types of hardware. This hardware is connected with the computer in such a way that it can provide the easy and the convenient access to the network. The hardware that is used in setting up the wireless network is as follows
- Wireless Router
- Ethernet cable or modem
- DSL broadband connection
- Different type of network adapter cards
- Second Ethernet cable
Setting up the Network:
In this step, we have to arrange the above given hardware in such a way that it runs the network wirelessly and provide the users the easiest approach to the network. First of all, make the connection between the router and your system by connecting the required Ethernet cable with the wireless local area network router through the routing port present at the backside of the wireless routing device. When this connection is complete then connect the second given Ethernet cable with wide area network port of the router. After theses connection start the router and do initialization requirements of the router. In this step if your connection to the internet has been configured then move top connect the internet wirelessly and if your not able to connect to the internet then check out the cable connected between the system and the router. Then again, turn on the router and check the connectivity.
After the successful connection between hardware and the system then its time to configure the router, that is the main source of networking wirelessly. Open the configuration wizard and follow the instructions given on the screen. Once you complete the configuration of the router then you personalize your router from other resources and have a safe networking access to the internet technology.
Configure the Networking Adapters:
The final and the last step in setting up the wireless network is the installation of the different types of the networking adapters or cards. There are different types of wireless access cards such as PCI or USB wireless card etc. First, install the card in the system and then install its required software by following the instructions given in the opening wizard of the software.
The last and the final device that is required for wireless networks is the receiver. It is the type of device that receives the signals in the form of radio signals transmits from the wireless router is called as receiver. It only receives those data transferring signals that are emitted from the routing device and carried out its required working.
