7. Wireless > 66. Extend the Range of Your Wireless Network

Extend the Range of Your Wireless Network

The efficiency and throughput of WiFi networks can vary dramatically. Make sure you get maximum throughput from your wireless network.

If you have more than one PC at home, the best way to hook them together and share a high-speed Internet connection is via a wireless network—in particular, one based on the WiFi standard, which is actually a family of standards known under the umbrella term of 802.11x.

The biggest problem in setting up a home network usually involves running the wires between PCs and a residential gateway. If your PCs are on different floors of your house, you might have to drill holes in your walls, ceiling, and floors and run wire through them. Even when PCs are on the same floor, you have to deal with the problem of wires snaking along the floor.
