How Do I connect

Traditional Wired Network Connection

  • Phone or cable lines are dropped behind walls throughout homes and office buildings.
  • These lines are connected to ISP network lines that are run over street poles or under streets.
  • Computers are connected to these networks using phone, DSL, and Cable modems.
  • The cost of implementing wired DSL and Cable network infrastructure is so expensive that traditional ISPs are unwilling to provide access to areas that they deem unprofitable.

Home and Public Hotspots

  • To free users from the limitations of wired network connections, businesses and residents have implemented Wi-Fi access point routers (“Hotspots”) to provide wireless access  in offices, hotels, restaurants, store-fronts, and homes.
  • These hotspots only provide short range access and they are limited areas where the access point routers can be connected to a wired network.

City Cellular Wi-Fi Network

  • As opposed to adding access points to a wired network, the cellular Wi-Fi  network allows users to be truly wireless at home, work, or play.
  • Users require Wi-Fi-ready computer equipment and, depending on their location, may require a Wi-Fi repeater or gain antenna.
  • A wireless range extender works as a relay or network repeater, picking up and reflecting Wi-Fi signals from a network's base router or access point.
  • High gain antennas Increase the range of your City's cellular Wi-Fi network. Attach these high gain antennas to your range extender or computer to increase both the effective strength of the outgoing signals and the reception sensitivity for incoming signals.
