What is Wireless Computer Networking?

Wireless computer networking is the practice of connecting two or more computers together giving you the ability to share files and information (data) with friends, family, coworkers and customers.  Networks are most often defined by the geographical areas that they span.  LANs, or Local Area Networks, in general extend across a single home or building, whereas WANs, or Wide Area Networks, span across cities, states, or even around the globe.  The world’s largest public WAN is the internet.

The two most common network designs are peer-to-peer, most commonly used in home networking, and client-server, most commonly used in business networks.

When you set up a computer network, security software is a must have.  Having the appropriate network security is essential for any networking environment, especially for residential and small business users.  Home and small business users are more vulnerable to online intrusion due to a lack of knowledge and resources.  Not having a full time network engineer or technician on site or in your home leaves a space for viruses, spyware, malware, adware, and hackers to access your computer.  Geek ABC is here to help bridge that gap.  More to come on Home Networking Security!!!
