Laptop Wireless Internet
Wifi Wireless Internet Access - Wireless Internet Connections
WiFi, the wireless revolution, has taken high-speed Internet to the next level. Now, anyone with a laptop can be connected to the Internet anywhere in the world without any cords or wires. WiFi is also commonly known as wireless networking or an 802.11 network. For more information, read Your Introductory Guide to Wireless Broadband.
WiFi is short for wireless fidelity. It is used as a generic term for any wireless network and also used to describe products approved as “WiFi Certified” by the “WiFi Alliance.” Even though certain products are certified, any WiFi product using the same radio frequency and the same standards will work with any other, whether it is certified or not.
How to "Go Wireless"- Finding a HotSpot
In order to set up a computer with a wireless Internet connection, you need to buy a network card (802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g) and install it in your existing desktop or laptop computer. The quality of your connection will be partially determined by the card you buy. For example, 802.11g has the fastest connection speed and is interchangeable with 802.11b products.
Next, find a hotspot or build one in your own home. A hotspot is the access point for wireless networks, which connects the computer to the Internet. Building a hotspot with or without an existing network is possible with the right equipment. Each hotspot can handle from 10 to 100 network cards at once, depending on the quality of the access point. If you would prefer to have a high-speed wireless connection from remote locations, you can find hotspots in many restaurants, cafés, hotels, airports and libraries.
Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) is a wireless technology similar to what cellular telephones use to communicate. Wireless-enabled computers, laptops, and PDAs use radio frequencies to send and receive data indoors and out; anywhere within range of a wireless signal.
IMCPL has added Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) points to allow patrons the opportunity to connect to the internet using their own equipment in the library. Wireless access points are available at all IMCPL Locations.
For wireless internet access, your laptop must have 802.11b- or 802.11g-compliant wireless capability, a charged battery and/or a power cord, and an internet browser such as Internet Explorer.
