What wireless network card to I need to use on my WLAN ?


In 1997 the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) created the first WLAN standard.

They called it 802.11 after the name of the group formed to oversee its development. this first version only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps today it has been improved to over 300Mbps using MIMO devices based on this first version, a comparable wired LAN on CAT5e Ethernet twisted pair cables usually is classes at a minimum of 10Mbps to a maximum speed of 100Mbps (often called 100/10Mbps)
Here is a summary of all the Wi-Fi versions and letter numbers upto the present day in 2010.

In 1999, the 802.11b specification was released for the the domestic market, supporting bandwidth up to 11 Mbps at the same time the 802.11a was released for the business market upporting bandwidth up to 54 Mbps it was much more expensive and signals had more difficulty penetrating walls and other obstructions so it was dropped.
In 2003, WLAN products supporting a newer standard called 802.11g it combines the best of both 802.11a and 802.11b it supports the same bandwidth as 802.11a of 54 Mbps (hence it is often called 54g this is the Wi-Fi standard), it uses the 2.4 Ghz frequency for greater range the 802.11g technology is backwards compatible with 802.11b, all WLAN cards will call this 802.11b/g
Some versions offer 128g which is 54g twice but only if the router will supports this doubled speed, the majority of all routers use a V.90 modem which will only support 54Mbps (aka 54g).

The newest IEEE standard in the Wi-Fi category is 802.11n (called MIMO technology) . It was designed to improve on 802.11g in the amount of bandwidth supported by utilizing multiple wireless signals and using antennas instead of one, it support data rates of over 100 Mbps upto 300Mbps and also offers somewhat better range over earlier Wi-Fi standards due to its increased signal intensity. All 802.11n equipment will be backward compatible with 802.11g/b networks.

Most internal WLAN cards are plug and play on the PCI bus, however more and more version are being provided as either a USB or PCMCIA version for laptops and desktops, this version below will work with all versions 11b, 54g and 11n upto 300Mbps ( if the router that you have will suport it.

The latest technology is called Wi-MAX is designed for long-range networking spanning miles or kilometers as opposed to local area wireless networking or WLAN. The other end of the Wireless technology spectrum, that split from 802.11b is called BlueTooth and works up to a maximum distance of 10 Meters used exclusively as the standard in Mobile Phone devices like headphones and short distance inter-connection to other phones and PC's.

Setup a new network under Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Setup a New connection > Setup a new Network. You need to make the Desktop as an Access point network. This will allow the Netbook to use the Desktop as a "router" and connect threw it to the internet. This is most likely the most time consuming way of doing it. The best bet would to pick up a cheap netgear or linksys router for better stability and ease of access.

How do I extend wireless coverage?


Extend the range of WiFi signals with Hardware If your router is placed on the ground floor of your home, the Wi-Fi signals will be very weak or may not even reach the basement computer or the printer upstairs. The situation will be no different if you work in a fairly large premises or if there are too many walls in the area.
In that case, here are some hardware device that you can consider to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi network:
wifi_repeater_thumb.jpgOption #1. You can attach a WiFi Repeater (also known as Wireless Range Expander) to your router and quickly expand the coverage of your wireless network without using any cables.
The Repeater should be placed within the range of your existing router and it will reflect the signals to other areas where the wireless reception was earlier poor (or totally absent). The Repeater can connect wirelessly to both routers and access points (see #3 below).
Option #2. (This is my current setup) You can get another wireless router and connect it to your existing router using an Ethernet cable. The advantage is that this setup comes pretty cheap and the Internet speed stays almost the same even for computers that are accessing the web via the new router.
You can get a 100 feet long Ethernet Cable (also known as Cat5 or LAN or RJ45 cable) for less than $10 and wireless routers start at $20. Here's a detailed guide on how you can connect two routers together.
Option #3. You also have the option to use an Access Point instead of a router to extend the WiFi range but that's often not required because Wireless Access Points can be more expensive than equivalent routers.
The other advantage with a router is that is has extra LAN ports so, in future, you can connect more wired computers for sharing files or you Internet connection.
Option #4. If you have an old desktop or laptop computer, you should consider adding an external (USB based) wireless adapter or upgrade the internal network card to improve the wireless reception (and thus Internet speed).

Unstable connection


ome wireless networks based on the 802.11b or 802.11g standards transmit their signal in a narrow radio frequency range of 2.4 GHz. Various other electronic devices in a home, such as cordless phones, garage door openers, baby monitors, and microwave ovens, may use this same frequency range. Any such device can interfere with a Wi-FI home network, slowing down its performance and potentially breaking network connections.
The 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi signal range is divided into a number of smaller bands or "channels," similar to television channels.Many wireless products ship with a default Wi-Fi channel of 6. If encountering interference from other devices within the home, consider changing the channel up or down to avoid it. Some Wi-Fi channel numbers overlap with each other. Channel 1 uses the lowest frequency band and each subsequent channel increases the frequency slightly. Therefore, the further apart two channel numbers are, the less the degree of overlap and likelihood of interference.
If this won't work, Then consider buying a new wireless router as your current is deemed broken.

Asus 802.11g wi-fi only detects network when connect a cable to the external antenna. what should i do?


It seems that the signal reaching your modem is weak or it getting blocked by some electrical equipment, try relocating the antenna. But first try it on another PC at a different location to confirm that wi-fi is working properly..............sodeep
