Networking Tips


WIRELESS NETWORKING
Wireless networking (WLAN) is possibly the most cost-efficient means of connecting computers.
It's a fact that over time, your networked PCs will be moved to many different locations - and a WLAN can save you time and money!

The current standard world-wide is 802.11n, designed to increase WLAN speeds to at least 100M bps for data and throughput rates.

Wireless networking has become a cost-efficient and secure way to connect computers. Wireless cards are available in nearly every interface and form, including PC Card (CardBus), Compact Flash, and USB.
Imagine the world without wires . . .
There's some good information about 'How Wireless Networks Work' HERE.
 
 
THE WIRED NETWORK
Given the limits of wireless in some situations it's a good idea to install a wired network where feasible. Wired networks offer higher speeds, less interference, and (note) about the same security. The actual cost of wire is not as great as you might think; but labour costs and your future plans will determine whether a wired network makes better sense for your business.

POWERLINE NETWORKING
Power-line networking is one of several ways to connect the computers in your home. It uses the electrical wiring in your building to create a network.
Sending signals across a building's electrical wiring isn't a 21st century idea. In fact, power companies have been sending control signals over the mains since the 1920s − it's how electricity meters know when to switch to an off-peak rate.
A Powerline network is essentially a wired network with (mostly) hidden wires.
