  What is Wireless Networking?
Wireless Networking is connecting a group of devices, like a smartphone, tablet and computer – to a router and high-speed internet or broadband connection. All of the devices synchronize to the network and can operate wirelessly from various locations depending on the network range.

What is the purpose of a router?
A router is designed to receive and analyze internet data called ‘packets’, then find appropriate locations to fit them in the network to load your programs. A router is essentially the gateway to your network connection and allows for simultaneous usage of your Wi-Fi-enabled devices, like laptops, smartphones and tablets.

What is the difference between a Wireless N and Dual-Band Connection?
A Wireless N connection can operate up to speeds of 300Mbps, that’s 5x faster and 2x the range of the previous Wireless G network setup. A Wireless N connection allows you to simultaneously stream HD video, music, play online gaming and more.

A Dual-Band connection is the fastest, operating on a 5GHz and 2.4GHz frequency band simultaneously. Dual-Band technology runs on two separate frequencies, allowing for speedy web browsing and gaming, avoiding a single band having to prioritize content.

What is the purpose of a Wireless Adapter?
Wireless Adapters pick up wireless signals from a router, allowing you to gain a network for a specific device. Operating on a 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g or 802.11n Wi-Fi standard, Wireless Adapters come in different form factors, including USB.

What is the “Cloud”?
The Cloud, or ‘Cloud Computing’, is a term used to describe the way users share and store information on the internet. Online servers save and protect information – like photos on Facebook, making them readily available for access from laptops, tablets, smartphones and other devices.

Wireless Network Security Cameras protect your home and office investments with advanced surveillance features like: motion detection, web browser surveillance – perfect for the smartphone, video streaming, direct hard drive recording, recording schedules and email alert notifications.
