Understanding The Basics
Wondering What WiFi Actually Is In Layman's Terms?
"WiFi" is the nickname for Wireless Fidelity - high speed internet and network connection without the use of wires, cables and other stuff you can trip over.
In a lot of ways WiFi is easier and cheaper to set up and run than a wired network - mainly due to the whole "lack of wires/cables" aspect, and allows you to move your computer quickly and easily around your home without having to worry about where the closest phone socket is kept. It also allows you to connect multiple computers to the one internet connection, quickly and easily.
Outside the house, WiFi is steadily growing it's global coverage. While it doesn't have the same range as Cell Phones yet, it does allow simple, easy remote access to the internet or your home/company network whenever you happen to be within a "hotspot".
WiFi is the sort of technology that will fast become second-nature in everyones lives, like Television and Cell Phones have done before it. One day in the not-too-distant future we'll be wondering how we ever suffered with cords and cables lying about the place for so long. You'll wonder why it took you so long to get on board. This is freedom for the 21st century, pure and simple.
