What do you think are the advantages of wireless internet? The wireless internet is great because it has a longer range then a simple cord. The thing is wireless can pretty much pick up anything. So what do you think, what is your input on this?

Wireless Internet is best for a laptops and not very useful for desktops. An advantage to it is that you can use it anywhere in your house, and not limited to one area.

I beg to differ. I have a wireless router and all my pcs and notebooks are connected via the wireless network. While wired network gives us the 100mbps compared to 54 mbps for G std wifi it gives the user flexibility. I do not know about homes in other countries, but over here over rooms are not connected. I hate to renovate and rewire my home to put in the network wires so I chose the wireless option. I have 2 desktops in my utility room where I connect to my printer. My family uses notebooks, at times 3 at one time and we print using the wireless connection thru the computer in the room. How ever data transfer over the network is slower but we solve it with pendrives.... I can rearrange my computers to any corner or any room without worrying about the wiring.

Wireless is the only way to go if you live in a house. If you live in a small apt. then get wired. It saves money in the wring each room as mentioned.

Maybe there are some interferences in your network there. Are you connecting to an available networks there or you have your own router to connect to? If you own the wireless router, try to modify or customize your wireless settings.

maybe your computer is using a 11 mbps wireless adapter that's why your internet connection is slow.

I know how to turn my computer on and type with it, and use it that way but I don't have a clue about how it works....but just looking at the word wireless, I would have to say it has a better range of distance....

Yes you are right about that. The laptop will of course pick up wireless internet. Compared to the computer usually you have that one connection.

Aside from allowing us to connect to other networks in a remote location that serves free wifi location, we can simply increased/expand the number of clients with the existing networks that we currently have. That is the best part for me...heheh

actually you got a limited of 32 wireless devices (as far as i know) to connect is a wireless network unlike daisy chaining you can connect more that 32 devices but of course the wired connection will vary on the distance of the devices.

I would say that it is easier if you have a notebook computer and you can move it anywhere in the house. I do not know if you go out and if it is right to use someone else's wireless like if you are in a motel or someplace different. I would say if you are maybe watching Tv in the living room, instead of going to your desktop and mylotting in the two or so minute commercials, you can do it right there and not miss the first two scenes of the show you are watching.

Yea you are right about that. I have a wireless router at my apartment complex. I really do not use it because my laptop pick up so many wireless connections.
