Upgrade #2: Creating a Wireless Network

If you don't want to run all those cables, you need a wireless network. The most popular wireless technology is Wi-Fi, which is the same type of wireless network used in large corporations—it's very stable and robust. Wi-Fi lets you connect to wireless network access points up to 150 feet away from your PC, at up to 11Mbps (or 22Mbps for the newer enhanced 802.11b).

note

Another type of wireless network is one that works through your home phone lines. Known as HomePNA, this type of network is losing popularity in favor of the faster Wi-Fi standard.
