Data & Telecoms Network
Wi-Fi provides a convenient way to connect the computers in your home without dealing with the hassle of wires, but Wi-Fi is also slow and unreliable compared to a wired connection. Wireless may be the way of the future, but here are some of the best ways to go wired where it counts.
Wireless is a good deal slower than a hard-wired connection. Wi-Fi is undoubtedly useful and convenient for a lot of networking needs, but it can also cause a lot of frustration: interference, dropped connections, lag, and worst of all, slow speeds when it really counts. Browsing the Internet isn’t terrible over wireless (usually), but the moment you try to transfer large files, play multiplayer games online, you start to feel the hurt. While you can do a lot to increase your wireless strength, you’ll see the best increases and better reliability if you switch your most mission-critical gear to a wired connection.
Having wired extentions returning to a central location give you the flexibility to have different numbers in different rooms. A small exchange can easily be fitted for home office use.
