broadband is fast becoming more and more widely used,
basically what Wireless broadband is is being able to use an internet/broadband
connection without any physical wires or leads between the device
you are using and the router/modem that is getting the information.
means that you no longer have to be sat at a computer terminal to
have access to the Internet, you can be sat in the garden or any
house in the room (providing there is coverage available) and connect
wirelessly to the Internet
to use wireless broadband you will need some slightly different
equipment to allow wireless, such as a wireless
real big benefit to wireless broadband is that you can quite often
find a wireless connection in coffee shops, airport lounges, hotels
and many other places. This for many can mean that work or tasks
may be able to be done when originally they wouldn't be able to
be done. All the person needs is a wireless device and they should
be able to connect and use the Internet as normal.
was mentioned above you need to have some different hardware and
equipment to use wireless broadband. A standard modem or router
will not work and you need to get a wireless router/modem so that
it is able to transmit the data to your wireless device. Also you
might need to also get a "wireless access point" that
will be used to extend the coverage of your wireless connection.
As the wireless connection can only go so far then a wireless access
point acts as a booster to make the signal go further, this can
help if you are struggling to get a reception in a part of the house
or in the garden!
device you want to connect to the Internet wirelessly also needs
to have wireless receiver, many laptops now come with wireless built
a similar theme to wireless broadband is that of mobile
broadband. Mobile broadband means that your mobile broadband
modem plugs into your laptop and connects to the Internet using
the mobile phone networks.
