How to access Wi-Fi

You can either buy your Wi-Fi enabled ADSL, cable or NBN modem from an electronics shop, or you can purchase it through your Internet Service Provider (ISP). The advantage of buying it from your ISP is that the device often comes pre-programmed with your username and password (so all you have to do is plug it in), and the company may be obligated to offer you technical support if any issues arise.

Wi-Fi networks are ideal for people who have a laptop, notebook, tablet computer, or an internet-ready smartphone they want to be able to use in more than one location around the home. With a wireless network, multiple users can access the internet at the same time. Another major advantage with Wi-Fi is you never need to worry about tripping over an Ethernet cable.

To create a good Wi-Fi network you need to have a fast broadband speed. The minimum speed should be 1500kbps on ADSL1, but an 8000kbps speed, ADSL2+ (up to 24Mbps), cable (up to 30Mbps), or NBN (up to 100MBPS) connection speed will ensure you can connect numerous devices to the one signal simultaneously. You’ll never need to worry about waiting for a web page or video to load up.

When you can’t get a fixed line connection, but need to create a Wi-Fi network at home, a Mobile Wireless Wi-Fi USB modem will be your fallback option. This Wi-Fi network is not as stable as a fixed line connection, as it can drop out like a mobile phone’s reception. 

Mobile broadband speeds are also much slower than with ADSL, cable or NBN, because the more people there are using the mobile phone tower, the less speed you’ll receive.
