Beginners guide to Wi-Fi and Wireless Internet

Wi-Fi is the name given to wireless technology (or “wireless fidelity”). For our purposes, the term is most commonly used to provide Internet access without the need for wires. Rather than plugging your PC or laptop into your broadband modem, you can access the Internet remotely as long as you are in range of a Wi-Fi access point – either at home or when you’re out and about.
