What Is Home Networking
Home networking means connecting a group of devices, for example, game system, PC and printers as well as mobile devices that connect to the internet and to each other. In two ways home networks connect. First one is a wired network, which connects devices like scanners and printers with cables. The second one is a wireless network, which connects devices such as e-readers and tablets without the need for a cable.
All home computer networks start with a network cable. Even if we plan on using all wireless clients, in most cases we will still require at least one cable to connect the broadband modem and the wireless router. Although Cable-less networks are very convenient, wired networks are faster than Wi-Fi in every other way. Cable networks are faster, provide a more reliable connection and are more secure as well set-up is easy and troubleshooting than wireless connections. If we’re sitting on the sofa with a laptop, or linking a Wi-Fi-only device, for example, an iPad, wired Ethernet is the better way to go. So we see that wired networking is an important thing.
Pros And Cons Of Wireless Networking
Many of us meet their needs with a mix of wired and wireless networking. For example, devices that stream movies help from the quicker and steadier wired connection. Devices like Tablets or laptops, however, advantage from the mobility available with a cable-less connection.
Both the wireless gateway 1 & wireless gateway 2 come with cable-less capability as well as four Ethernet ports allowing us to link devices without and with wire at the same time. There are some home networking terms.
