Tips for Getting WI-Fi Internet for Your Home

on 31 October 13

Wireless empowered devices access the Internet by interacting with an established network. Laptops, cell phones and computers are common devices having wireless capabilities. Wireless connections deliver the options for mobile communication as they do not require wiring for connection. You will get several companies offering the service of wireless Internet access.


A wireless Internet service at your house helps to develop the attractiveness of your condo at the time of sale. Wireless Internet makes use of a standard modem and a specific router broadcasting the signal to the area around it. A WI-Fi connection helps you access the Internet through a wireless card in the computer rather than through an Ethernet cord or a telephone. You could link a WI-Fi signal you have set up at your office or home.


WI-Fi is ideal for home or office use owing to the range of freedom it offers. Several computers make use of the same networks. You could take your laptops from your bedroom to the couch easily and without any pause in the Internet service. Setting up of a WI-Fi network is easy to achieve even if you do not have any experience with wireless network. Only what you require are an Ethernet cable, a wireless router and a broadband modem.


Let’s have a look at the tips for getting WI-Fi Internet at your home:


Check the requirement for wireless router


Check out the range of requirements for your router and map out the central locations for offering your wireless Internet. You could put a modem and router on each floor for keeping the networks separate, or else you could have a small complex so that one router will carry out the work. Plug in the modem to the router in the modem-specific port situated at the back of the router.


Set up computer close to the router


Make use of a computer or use a laptop close to the router area in order that you could set up the network. You should install a router for setting up a personal Wi-Fi connection as per the instructions of the manufacturer to plug it in and connect it to the modem. Find out the URL required by you in the router manual. A unique URL is required to input in the Internet Browser for setting up your new wireless connection. You are also required to provide a default password along with the URL. Get these items and launch your browser by navigating to the provided URL. Enter the default password when prompted.


Fix the adapter or wireless card


If you do not have a wireless card or an adapter, you must install an adapter or a wireless card. Most laptops are available with an internal wireless card. However if you are using a desktop computer, you will require a wireless adapter that looks like an antenna. You should plug the antenna into the Ethernet outlet of your PC. The router will not alone let your PC access the Internet but will take the help of an adapter or a wireless card.


Place the install disc


Insert the install disc coming with the wireless router into your PC and follow the on-screen instructions for setting up a network. Determine whether you want your network to be protected by password. If you do not give a password to a network, almost anybody within the range of your signal could be able to access it. On the other hand, if you like to make your network password protected, try to follow the instructions and permit WPA protection while you are prompted to do so. You are required to provide the network name as well as the password to your residents. As a result make it something which is easy to remember.


Inspect signal strength in a condo unit


Inspect the strength of the signal in each condo unit. If units are far away from the router, you are required to buy and install wireless repeaters for extending the strength of the signal in order that each condo could easily connect to the network.


Restart your PC


After the installation is completed, you should try to restart your PC for allowing it to load and recognize your network.


Access a WI-Fi hotspot


Get the access to the wireless network by viewing all connections in the range. Click on the Internet Access in the lower right side of your computer screen in order to see a list of networks. If you set up your wireless connection, the name of your network will come up at the top of the list with the best signal strength. Click the name of the network and if prompted, you could type in the password for connecting to the Internet.


Follow these tips and get a WI-Fi Internet access at your home.
