Signal strength will determine how far it will travel.
With both Wired or Wireless network the
transmitted data signal will degrade after a certain
With wired networks this is due to the strength of the
transmitted data that is
sent down the wire, it will lose its strength the farther it travels, due to
resistance in the wire.
With wireless networks your limitations come from the strength of the radio frequency that the transmitter puts out. The
have a tendency to bounce off of objects (walls, windows, or any flat surface)
and will be impeded by walls, furniture, or glass.
This interference will cause the
transmitted data to degrade to a
point where the connection is lost. Boosting the
for either network will
increase the connectivity.
Wired or Wireless?
These factors in deciding on wired or wireless should be considered.
Security - In this day and age, ID and personal information theft is at an all
time high. You should consider security as your number one priority. Loss of
data can be devastating.
Cost - New or small business just making it may have to consider the cost of
wiring a building to accommodate a new workstation when adding new employees.
Convenience - Sometimes the new or additional device needs to be in a certain or
After weighing all the considerations you will be better equipped to make the
"right" decision on installing or adding to your Wired or Wireless

To increase the distance your
transmitted data will travel you need to boost it.
With wired networks a switch placed at the point when the
transmitted data begins to degrade will strengthen the transmitted data
and extend the distance of the network.
wireless networks you will need to either add a access point or a "booster" device at the point where the
transmitted data begins to degrade. You can all so use a
booster to get around obstructions such as electronic interface by machinery,
thick walls, or other problem areas.
Some of the main culprits in the degrading of
the transmitted data is metal, large fixtures such as wall lockers,
refrigerators, file cabinets, and plate glass windows will stop the
connectivity. In places that there are thick concrete walls you
should use wire connections and not rely on wireless...
