There are a lot of things that are out of our control that can make or break the wireless internet connection that you have with your PC. These things are called wireless connections and they just happen to be the two most common ones.
Wireless Internet connections are a bit like how you can’t run a cable TV service with your TV. You can’t just plug your TV in and watch cable.
The most common wireless internet connection that I can think of is your wireless router. Every router is a wireless connection for your computer, so your computer must be in range to be able to connect to your router. The other common wireless connection is a wifi or cellular connection. If you have a cellular connection, that is the connection that your smartphone uses to share your internet connection with other people.
The problem is that no matter what you plug your wireless router into, your router is only able to send data down a specific path. This means that no matter how far you look, you can only see the signal from your wireless connection. So if you plug a cellular connection into your router, you’ll not be able to watch your favorite show on TV or take a break from work.
Well, you could, but you’re still going to have to keep track of the signal. That is, you’ll have to keep track of what signal your connection is sending you over every single path you’re using. This is where your router comes into play. It’s the little black box that your computer is plugging into.
The router is the wireless interface in your computer. It’s the component that connects your computer with the wireless network. If you have a laptop, youll need a router to hook your internet up to your laptop’s network via the wireless connection. If you use a desktop computer, youll probably already have one.
For a while, the only way to get a wireless internet connection was via a USB (or ethernet) stick. Since USB and ethernet both use the same physical media, youll have the same signal strength over both. But since most of us have wireless routers laying around, it makes sense to plug them into the router so you can get better signal. That way the router can be switched off while you use it.
For some reason, it seems that people who have wireless routers don’t like to use them for internet. Since the only way to get a wireless internet connection is via a USB or ethernet stick, youll be getting a crappy signal on your laptop.
It’s true that wireless routers dont always have built-in antennas, but there are a lot of wireless routers out there that will plug into a router and give you a wireless connection. Some of them already come with built-in antennas.
Even though wireless routers don’t always have built-in antennas, there are a lot of wireless routers out there that will plug into a router and give you a wireless connection. Some of them already come with built-in antennas.
