Now a days with the advent of internet, WIFI service is the one of the most crucial demands by any consumer. Every minute we need to be connected through the worldwide web. Cable connection is quite common if not obsolete, hence WIFI becomes indispensable in order to run a business. To have a local area wireless technology that connects internet using 2.4GHZ UHF AND/OR 5HZ SHF radio waves is an absolute necessity. The Trademark name for WIFI is WLAN that stand’s for wireless local area network, and the term WIFI which is used in general English as a synonym of “WLAN”.
These are the devices that can connect to an internet via “WIFI” and can also be used as an access point or what we call “hotspot” with the range of 20 meters indoor and if it’s a greater range it can also be used in the outdoor. Hotspots can be use in a small room with walls that block radio waves or huge areas by using over lapping access points.
