Understanding Wireless Router Specifications
A router connects your personal LAN (local area network) to the Internet (WAN, Wide Area Network) and wireless-ready computers (desktops, notebooks and PDAs) to the network to enable sharing of the Internet, files or even printers in the local network. The extensive selection of wireless routers makes it vital to have at least a basic understanding of wireless router specifications, including data transfer standards and rates (e.g. 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g), and therefore equipment compatibility, as well as data security protocols in order to choose a wireless router that best meets your requirements.
