to connect to a router. It is imperative that the laptop must have the
right network card with a WiFi connector. There are many public spaces
that allow for WiFi connections in every western city. The quality of the

factors. In general, the quality of the connection depends on the quality
of the wireless signal that your laptop receives. Being closer or further

introduced a few years back the notion of the mobile network already
existed. Nevertheless, it was not perfected and had many flaws. Over the

accommodating for this new trend. Public libraries, airports, or even
specific businesses provide wireless internet for their customers. In
many city centres in North America, there are so many wireless networks
functioning at the same place that it is virtually impossible not to find
an internet connection to log on to. The only down side to wireless
computing is that it might be associated with health risks that we are
not yet aware of. Overall, however wireless computing is the way to go
for the business professional, the student or every other avid computer
user.
