Have You Gone Wireless Yet?

Cheap wireless broadband internet has made life much easier for computer users. At home or “on the road,” once you are used to wireless, you may not want to use wires ever again! Are there problems with wireless connections?

The way we use broadband internet is changing. With the popularity of image and file sharing websites, it is hard to live with a dial-up internet connection. Even if you live in a rural area, there are ways of getting cheap broadband internet. Many ISPs companies offer facilities for you to connect via mobile phones and you can even get broadband via satellite.

The prices of wireless broadband modems are coming down and you can pick up a decent router for under $50 from most shops. There are some cheap broadband deals which offer a free modem when you sign a contract.

But is this all good news? Well, maybe. The main problem with wireless connections compared to a wired broadband network is security. If you do not set up the security carefully, then other people can easily use your connection. So you need to make sure that the connection is encrypted. It’s not as hard as it sounds and most routers and ISP modems come with instructions. Your broadband provider will also be able to guide you on this if you require assistance.

One of the common mistakes people make when they go wireless is to buy the cheapest equipment available without doing research. It is always worth reading broadband reviews and guides on wireless equipment before you buy.
