Suggestions To Add Wireless Devices to Windows® 7 System
Which are some of the wireless devices that can be connected to the Windows 7 system ?
Since high speed and broadband become the gold standard of all network connections, more and more public places are offering Wi-Fi connections and compatibility with those systems that are able to connect to them. Although this is a really useful service, your system must be wireless compatible or be equipped with a router to do the same. Once your system is compatible, you can successfully add a wireless device to your system with just a few mouse clicks. But before connecting the wireless devices, you need to ensure certain things for proper connection. You can connect mobile phones, systems, mouse, keyboard etc to your system through this wireless technology.
Suggestions to add wireless devices to the system:
- Check the device settings
- Range of the wireless device
Check the device settings
While connecting the wireless device to the system, you need to ensure that the device is turned on and check whether the system is low on battery power or in standby mode. For example, if Bluetooth capability is integrated into your system, make sure the Bluetooth radio transmitter is turned on. You need to check whether the switch coming with Bluetooth is turned on. Some of the systems might contain an external switch and you need to turn on that switch also. If you don’t know how to connect the device, you can check the information available with the system. If this happens in the case of wireless network devices, you need to check the wireless network configuration of the system.
Range of the wireless device
To be identified by the system, the wireless device must be in proper range. For example, you need to check the location of the router while connecting the system to the network. You have to ensure that the device is within the wireless range of your system, typically within 6-9 feet for most Bluetooth enabled devices, or within 100 feet for a wireless network Wi-Fi device. If you don't know the correct location, better place the device near the system. If there are any interruptions such as wall or any other interfering devices such as mobile phones, change the position of the device from that location.
The last thing that you need to check is the discoverability. When a Bluetooth-enabled device is adjusted to be discoverable, it sends out radio signals to advertise its location to other devices and systems. You can check the entire information from the manufacturer’s website. Some devices such as a wireless mouse or keyboard might have a button on them that you need to push, while others such as a Bluetooth mobile phone might have a setting in its software menu that you need adjust to make it discoverable.
