How it Works?

Wireless technology works much the same way a mobile phone works: airwaves, instead of wires, are used to carry data from one point to another. There are limitations to where you can access the Internet- you must be within range of an access point, the part of a wireless network that transmits data to your computer.

To learn more about the different types of wireless networks, click on the scenarios below.

Wireless Local Area Network - A WLAN creates a range that can reach up to 300 feet. You can connect to a WLAN from your office or public access facilities.
Wireless Personal Area Network - A wireless PAN device commonly has a range of up to 100 feet, freeing you from the limitations of wires and cords.
Wireless Wide Area Network - A WWAN's range can reach up to 20 miles, offering users a way to stay connected while they're on the move, away from other network infrastructure.
 

In a Wireless Local Area Network, a radio communications device called an access point connects network computers. The access point is small and lightweight with an antenna attached to it that sends data back and forth over the airwaves. The illustration above shows how a WLAN works in a typical office environment.

A single access point, like a router, has a range that can reach up to 300 feet (100 meters). (Range and speed will vary according to environmental and other factors.) An access point can extend the range of a WLAN.

Desktops and hand-held devices use PCI adapters, while notebooks access wireless networks through integrated wireless Mini-PCI cards and external network PC cards.
 

With a Wireless Personal Area Network, you can:
Connect your system to a printer
Sync a PDA
Download images from a digital camera
Transfer MP3 files

Bluetooth is an emerging standard in Personal Area Networks, allowing the transmission of data between devices such as cellular phones, handheld devices like Pocket PC and notebook or desktop computers through short-range radio waves. With Bluetooth technology, you can complete business tasks like updating your calendar in your handheld device and then synchronizing the data with the calendar on your notebook computer.

Latitude D/Family notebooks can be equipped with integrated Bluetooth at point of sale.

 

Wireless Wide Area Networks transmit data using mobile phone signals, through a mobile phone service provider, with connection speeds equal to 56K* dial-up. Their range can reach up to 20 miles (30 kilometers), offering users a way to connect while they're on the move, away from other network.
