  • Is it possible to pick up wi-fi from 3 miles away?

    Best answer: You would have to have a relatively strong antenna. It would need to be very high gain. You would need line of sight too. If there are objects in-between the signal will get blocked. Regardless of how strong the antenna is. Three miles seems to be stretching it though. Typically the max distance is 1 mile or so. A... show more
    Best answer: You would have to have a relatively strong antenna. It would need to be very high gain. You would need line of sight too. If there are objects in-between the signal will get blocked. Regardless of how strong the antenna is. Three miles seems to be stretching it though. Typically the max distance is 1 mile or so. A much better option is to bounce the signal off of another antenna and then another until it gets to the intended destination. Use what are called Wifi repeaters. Which is typically what most do when they want to send a wifi signal long range.

  • Wireless connection question for dummy needed.?

    Best answer: The second connection that you think has more speed is not necessarily faster. Modern routers usually have both a 2.4 GHz and a 5.0 GHz WiFi signals. The 2.4 frequency has been around the longest, and the 5.0 frequency has been a relatively recent addition. All devices support the 2.4 frequency, but very few... show more
    Best answer: The second connection that you think has more speed is not necessarily faster. Modern routers usually have both a 2.4 GHz and a 5.0 GHz WiFi signals. The 2.4 frequency has been around the longest, and the 5.0 frequency has been a relatively recent addition. All devices support the 2.4 frequency, but very few support the 5.0 freq. I've found that very few laptops support the higher frequency, but most modern smartphones (of the past 5 years or so) will support it. I don't know why laptops are falling behind on this technology, but that's just the case, it's probably to save manufacturing costs -- penny-pinching.

    Now, 2.4 vs. 5.0 don't really translate to faster speeds. Yes, 5.0 Ghz is a higher frequency than 2.4 GHz, but these are really just the carrier frequencies. The actual data rates are not much different between them, so you're not missing out on much. Think of FM radio stations, the channels on the lower-end of the dial aren't any worse quality than the channels on the upper-end of it. The main reason for introducing the second frequency was to alleviate congestion. Now that WiFi is so common, just about everybody in an apartment building might have a WiFi router, and each of them would be using the exact same frequencies, 2.4 GHz. So there is a chance of congestion with so many routers broadcasting on the same frequency. Not only that, but even most cordless phones also use this exact same frequency band. So introducing 5.0 GHz basically just reduces the congestion, therefore there's less chance of collisions between competing routers. But the theoretical maximum data transfer rates of both bands should be pretty much the same.

    So if you have some cellphones that use WiFi, put them on the 5.0 band, and put your laptop on the 2.4 band.

    Best answer: When you make a purchase with PayPal you will receive an email to the email that you listed with PayPal almost immediately and usually app on your cell phone if you used your cell phone take care getting an email from PayPal isn't proof that the seller actually paid you sellers use this all the time as a scam and send you a fake email so you think that they have paid you and you go ahead and ship the item don't ever depend on the email if you think that the sale has gone through go to PayPal your own self and verify that you can see with your own two eyes the money sitting in your account if it's not you know immediately that you are being scammed

  • Hello. Can a Dimension C521 Desktop use a USB Wireless Network Adaptor to connect to the internet? Thank you.?

    Best answer: Any normal PC produced in the last 10 to 15 years will have USB ports.

    Best answer: Any normal PC produced in the last 10 to 15 years will have USB ports. Providing you use a USB wireless adapter that has driver software compatible with the operating system on the PC, then it can connect to a WiFi network. A WiFi network does not necessarily have to provide Internet access although most home WiFi networks do.

    There are some networks that must be configured to accept a connection from a new WiFi device. If you encounter one of these networks then you will not be able to use it to reach the Internet until the network administrator configures the network to accept your device.

    Remember WiFi does not necessarily mean Internet. You can use WiFi for internal networking with other devices without a working Ethernet connection.

    Finally, there are different WiFi modes (e.g. 802.11n) and different WiFi frequency bands (e.g 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). A wireless adapter will work only if it and the chosen network both use the same mode and band. Most adapters support 2.4 GHz operation, fewer offer 5 GHz as well. Older adapters may not support some of the modern faster operating modes. Any adapter that was manufactured after 2006 should offer WPA2 (PSK) WiFi encryption, which is currently about the most secure for normal WiFI networks.

    I hope this helps.

  • Are Mac Addresses unique to a a specific networking hardware or are they unique to the computer you are using?

    For example, if my built in WIFI card has a certain mac address of (111). Then I shut off the WIFI and use a USB WIFI dongle, will my mac address still be (111)? What if I use a ethernet wire? Will it still be (111) or does all 3 of these things have their own mac address? Thanks,
