What do we mean by network connectivity?

Wired or Wireless

Wired networks require less maintenance because you are using physical connections to move your data from point to point. You do not have to do any configuration or upgrading of the physical connections once it is  installed.

Considerations for network connectivity:

The wiring should be good for over ten years once it is in place. If you use high quality wiring in your installation it could last as long as twenty years, one thing to consider is that any wiring that exits the living / work area, i.e. into the attic or exterior walls it is subject to the extremes of the environment, high and low temperature changes of the seasons.

Wired networks are expensive because the wire has to be "pulled" throughout the building structure along with installing the "node" wall plates for the connection to the computer, and has to have a panel where all the wires are gathered in one place then connected to the switch or hub which is in turn connected to the router.

Wireless networks have a higher requirement for software maintenance but do not have the expense of wired networks.

With a wireless network you can easily move from one place to another with out worrying about the cost of additional network components.

You can work from anywhere you can connect to the network. The draw backs of a wireless networks are security and distance. Both of these limitations can be overcome with some extra work and equipment.

When you set up your wireless network ensure you are using the highest encryption available, use the most complex password and encryption algorithm.

If you need to have your wireless network extend past the normal range that the wireless switch provides you can add on pieces of equipment that will boost the signal typically to twice the normal range of about thirty feet.

Some of the newer wireless routers and access points have the range booster already built in thus saving the expense of buying the range booster equipment.

Range or length limitations -

Both types of networks wired or wireless have a range or length limitations that may be over come by using hardware to extend the range of the wireless RF signal or length of the wire.

With wireless networks you can add a range booster.

With wired networks you can add a switch to boost the signal after approximately 100 feet.
