Different Options of Wireless Network Settings in Windows® 7
What are the various issues that might occur while availing the options of wireless network settings in Windows 7?
A wireless network provides the ultimate experience in networking flexibility and setting one up is easier than the users might think. Sometimes, users may face some issues with the wireless network in Windows 7. If your Wi-Fi network is not displayed in the Window and Internet acces,s Local should ensure that the system is within range of the network. Then the router or access point should be activated and the switch to the wireless network for your computer must be turned on to access the network. One of the latest features to manage network and Internet connections in Windows 7 is the capability to back up and restore wireless network settings. This can be very functional for system users who operate with various multiple computers.
Discussed below are some options of wireless network settings in Windows 7:
- Setting up the modem and Internet connection
- Wireless router
- Wireless network adapter
Setting up the modem and Internet connection
When the users have all the equipment, they need to set up the modem and Internet connection if the modem isn't set up for the user by the Internet service provider. The users are recommended to follow the instructions that come with the modem to connect it to the system and the Internet. If the users are using digital subscriber line, connect the modem to a phone jack. If the users are using cable, they should connect the modem to a cable jack.
A router sends data and information between the Internet and the network. With a wireless router, users can easily connect systems to the network using radio signals instead of wires. Users should keep the wireless router in such a place where it will receive the strongest signal with the least amount of interference. 802.11g networking equipment uses a 2.4 gigahertz radio frequency. There are chances for the signals to get interrupted when devices like cordless phones and microwaves are used.
A network adapter is a device that connects the system to a network. To connect the computer to a wireless network, the system should be equipped with a wireless network adapter. Most of the computers and other laptops come with a wireless network adapter which is already installed. Users can purchase the wireless network adapter from an electronics store if they need one for the system. The universal serial bus type is a nice choice because it is small, easy to install, and can be moved around to different systems. Users should also ensure that they get the same type of adapters as the wireless router.
