Wi-Fi is Freedom
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is freedom: it allows you to connect
to the Internet from your couch at home, a bed in a hotel room or a
conference room at work without wires. How? Wi-Fi is a wireless
technology like a cell phone. Wi-Fi enabled computers send and
receive data indoors and out; anywhere within the range of a base
station. And the best thing of all, it's fast. In fact, it's several
times faster than the fastest cable modem connection.
However, you only have true freedom to be connected anywhere if
your computer is configured with a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED radio (a PC Card
or similar device). Wi-Fi certification means that you will be able
to connect anywhere there are other compatible Wi-Fi CERTIFIED
products — whether you are at home, the office or corporate campus,
or in airports, hotels, coffee shops and other public areas equipped
with Wi-Fi access.
