Wireless networking might be a little scary for the technically challenged, but rest assured that most current consumer grade wireless routers are increasingly simple to set up and secure with an easy setup wizard built in.
The benefits of having a WiFi network are innumerable, but here are the top three. The first and most obvious benefit: being able to access your network from anywhere in the house, from the comfort of your bedroom, to the porcelain throne. Any standard grade wireless router will easily cover the average American three bed two bath with ease.
Second, and only slightly less prominent, your cell phone can connect to this network as well, saving you valuable data usage and achieving a much faster connection than standard 3G speeds. Most cell phones will automatically change to WiFi networks it has connected to before, so set it up once, and you’ll never have to worry about it again!
Third and finally, a wireless network help share bandwidth equally between all users. While a hard-lined network may take special configuration to limit bandwidth and avoid having one user eat up all the speed, many wireless routers will automatically limit wireless users to avoid this problem.
