Living the life with 802.11 wireless networking

| Networking News | Posted: Dec 2, 2002 5:02 am

Life is good, today's technology is even better... I setup my house with Wi-Fi 802.11 wireless networking today with products from Compex and Dlink. Right now I am sitting in the comfort of my lounge room typing on my Dell notebook with mp3's streaming straight through the air from my desktop PC with the wireless connection showing an "excellent" signal strength with the access point being about 10 metres away in the next room.

 

I ventured outside earlier and was able to maintain network connectivity up to about 60 metres away from my access point, but with a degrading signal strength scaling me down to around 2mbps.

 

This technology is damn cool if you ask me. Look forward to a comprehensive article on 802.11 networks over the next couple of weeks!
