The most reliable and consistent option for networking. While wireless networks can run into interference, wired connections don't run into that vulnerability. The moment you plug a device into a router, you have yourself a wired network. Printers and other devices that come with an RJ45 network port are called Ethernet-ready devices.
Routers are the devices that in many cases allow you to connect multiple devices both wired and wireless to the network, and thus, the internet. A home router usually has 4 LAN ports, meaning that straight out of the box it can host a network of up to four wired devices. Routers can also be the largest bottleneck in the house. Routers come in different speeds and capabilities, and thus a router can actually slow your internet connection.
Everyone loves wireless networks, as there is no need for unslightly wires all over, but it is also the least reliable way to run a network. Wireless signal is normally provided by routers, but there are modem/router combos that do have wireless capability. Wireless networking is prone to interference from your neighbours networks, baby monitors, cellular and microwave devices to name a few. There are routers such as dual-band routers that can help by allowing you to change the frequency band the wireless signal is being sent on. Some times troubleshooting is required to find out why a wireless signal is not working as it should. It could be a multitude of issues. It could be the router's range, frequency band interference, it could be your building's materials or devices either in or exterior to your building causing issues.
|Power Line Networking:
In some homes and buildings power line networking is a great choice. It allows you to run the signal through the powerlines of your building into other rooms and areas that would otherwise be unserviced. Powerlines can service both wired and wireless networks and help you avoid the issues faced when you need to run cables.
|Cell Phone Boosters:
If you find that your cell phone drops constantly at home or work, a cellular booster will dramatically increase your signal and eliminate most if not all cellular issues.
