What is a Router?
A router allows you to connect one or more computers or printers together to form a network.
Put simply, a router lets a number of devices send information back and forth. The computers can be connected to the router either with a wire (called an Ethernet Cable), or without wires, known as a wireless router.
For anyone with a laptop a wireless router is a must, but installation is not always straight forward. Redvale Communications can help you configure the router to the access the internet and ensure a secure connection and safe online viewing.
If the security is not set up for your router and laptop to securely speak to each other, then anyone can use your internet connections from outside your home. This is the very least they could do!
A lot of wireless routers don't have security turned on by default. Your configuration pages will allow you to turn it on, and there is usually a help menu which explain the various security settings.
Ethernet and wireless networks each have advantages and disadvantages,depending on your needs, one may serve you better than the other.
Wired networks provide users with plenty of security and the ability to move lots of data very quickly, making them ideal for business users. Wired networks are typically faster than wireless networks, and they can be very affordable. However, unless you're building a new house and installing Ethernet cable in the walls, you'll be able to see the cables running from place to place around your home, and wires can greatly limit your mobility. A laptop owner, for example, won't be able to move around easily if his computer is tethered to the wall, although for offices with fixed PCís then this isnít a problem.
So for general home use then a wireless router is the everyday standard but for offices and larger premises a wired network, maybe with the integration of a wireless signal would be the answer.
