Wi-Fi networks refer to wireless networks that can help you connect to the internet without having to set up a wired internet connection on your laptop or mobile device. They help you log on to the web in a very convenient and effective method that is completely free from hassles. You no longer need to purchase a mobile internet connection for your system in case you are travelling as most public places these days provide Wi-Fi networks that can allow you to surf the internet. These may be offered free of cost at some places like hotels, libraries, malls, etc. and may also be charged at certain areas. There are generally two ways in which you can connect to a Wi-Fi network in the vicinity. These are either by filling in a password or logging on without having to do so. In the latter case, the Wi-Fi is generally offered free of cost and is meant for use of the public.
Apart from being very useful at public places, Wi-Fi networks are equally important at homes and in corporate offices. This is because they allow a number of different systems including personal computers, laptops, mobile devices, etc. to gain access through a common internet connection. You are not required to get a separate connection or internet cables for each system in your house or office thus saving on additional expenses. The set up is also quite simple as you only have to get an internet connection installed along with setting up a router to provide Wi-Fi signals throughout your home. There are different kinds of routers that can be purchased. These devices differ in the amount of area that they can cover and provide Wi-Fi signals in. Generally, the more expensive routers are able to cover wider areas than cheaper ones.
If you have a Wi-Fi internet connection installed in your premises, all you need to do is to open the network connections folder in the Control Panel. Your system will then show you all the Wi-Fi networks that are available in the area and you can log on to your network either directly or by filling in a password depending on how you have set it up.
