When setting up a Wireless Network you will need to consider the following:
A Wireless network uses many of the principles highlighted in the above information (LAN networks), but there are a few extra points to be aware of.
It is critical that attention is giving to the range of the wireless router/equipment being used. When using a cabled network you can be confident that once cabling has been set-up that connectivity will be available, however, when setting up a wireless network this may not always be the case as it will depend on where the wireless router is sited and the signal strength in the relevant locations.
It is also possible to setup a PC to act as a wireless router. This may prove a suitable alternative for you, but does require the PC to be turned on for this set-up to work correctly.
For further information on setting up a PC as wireless router please visit the following link.
You must also be mindful that leakage of your wireless network will occur, so there is potential that the network could be accessed by unauthorised personnel. This heightens the risk to you over the use of the more traditional cabled networks.
