How To Get Wi-Fi At Home
Knowing how to get Wi-Fi at Home is not a hard thing to learn. Technology, especially wireless, is growing at an exponential rate, and it will help you to get "saavy" as they call it. Wi-Fi was first demonstrated (as a local area Internet connection) in 2000, and since then has become quite popular. Lots of people get Wi-Fi at home, care to join in on the craze?
Here's what you'll need for Wi-Fi:
- Ability to pay for high-speed Internet
- A cable or satellite connection\
- A Wi-Fi Ready device (such as a modern laptop or desktop)
- Make a few decisions. Those decisions, specifically, are just how far you want the wireless to reach, what package ("bundle") you desire, and how fast you want your connection. As soon as you figure out the pricing of your new Wi-Fi connection, continue to the next step.
- Order high-speed Internet from your local Internet provider. Most importantly, you need a connection to the "net". Some agents will provide better rates than the standard ones, so be sure to check that out. Satellite and cable companies both provide Wi-Fi routers with their Internet services.
- Make sure you get a router. A "router" is what "routes" your Internet to different wireless devices. More specifically, it enables you to get Wi-Fi at home. Want Wi-Fi? Order the router from your ISP!
- Connection time! Okay, you have everything ready. Plug your router into your modem (or wall, in many cases), into the power outlet, and into any non-Wi-Fi computers in your home. Since most devices are Wi-Fi ready, your laptop or desktop should automatically detect a signal and connect.
As a side note, many people might take advantage of that fact that you now have Wi-Fi, and steal it (it's easy). Hence, a network password is essential! Anyways, once you get Wi-Fi at home, enjoy all the fastest portions of Web 2.0 without all of the cables!
