Do you need to save money when you can use your old-fashioned wire? Not necessarily. Do you need to keep your wireless network secure? Not necessarily.

Difference between wired and wireless

A wire is the basic infrastructure of an electrical network. Wires carry electrical current in a conduit. As a result, they can be ripped asunder by most humans, although the best way to do it is to route the backup cable through a hole in the wall.

X-rays can also be triggered by current running through a wire, especially at the points of the house where the wires join. This can Happen at the receptionist’s desk, where the technician may be looking for a prescription drug update.

A wireless network is a web of wires that is kept secure by the use of an antenna. Unlike a wired network, there is no conduit for the current to pass through. If there is any current at all, it conducts through the wall at the point of intersection of the wires.

Generations ago, people did not bother to wire their homes for protection. Just as they did not make doors secure with locks and cabinets, they did not make their connections securely. Destructive interference caused by wireless signals is a thing of the past.

How to Keep Your Wireless Network Secure

Your first line of defense against destructive interference is to keep the walls clean. You can accomplish this with a combination of tactics including installation of barrier devices such as percussion switches or honeycomb tiles to seal the openings, and static cling Film to coat the outside of the device.

In the early days of the neighborhood watch program, many police officers were hardly ever able to access high-traffic premises in the evening hours. Fortunately, when it worked, the use of wireless computer networks helped to locate the intruders and make arrests.

Now, not only are police able to keep the streets safe but so are the people performing the surveillance that helps to capture the criminals. On the local level, broom companies can help to catch individuals breaking a home or business. On the state and federal levels, intruders can be identified and stopped before they can cause any problems to anyone.

If you have a wireless computer or camera, you may be capturing more than you can use. That is why it is important to have additional cameras or wire cameras installed throughout the premises of your home or business. Using just one camera is not enough to keep the video and the picture of the device.

The more the device is plugged in and the more it is operational, the more it can gather information about the people that are using it. You can imagine the amount of data that is available to intruders that have access to this type of device. It is a clear violation of privacy that should not be allowed by anyone.

The legislation that made the unauthorized access unlawful and provided for penalties has created a deterrent for those who have already fallen victim to this type of invasion. But, it is important to know that the best defense against any violation of privacy is communication.

By installing devices to indicate reliability, or to notify service providers if there is some type of unauthorized access, users will be alerted to incoming threats and able to deal with them as necessary.

A simple set of rules is easy to come by when you group similar devices in a directory and make it visible to the public. When you can notify the provider of the unauthorized access, they can legally disable the device until the issue is resolved.
