Enterprise Router

One of the most frequent questions that users of home networks ask themselves is what type of router to choose for their network: wireless or wired. Many variables influence this decision, but in the end everything lies in what you want and what your requirements are within your network. In the following article, we explain in a simple way the advantages and disadvantages of each of these devices.

Wired router vs wireless router

 

Enterprise routers are basic product for any business/enterprise. Although currently, most routers have both options (working with wired network and wireless network), it is advisable to know which is best and as the case may be, use only cables, and disconnect the WiFi option from the router. Next, the strengths and weaknesses of using wired and wireless networks:

The first variable to consider when choosing the type of router to use is security. A wireless network is more exposed to hackers than a cable, so if security is important to you, you should consider connecting to the routervia cable.

Speed ​​is another important point to note, in wireless networks the speed of data transfer is less than cable, so if you need your data transfers are fast you must discard the wireless connection.

Portability is an important variable in the modern lifestyle, if you do not want to fill your cable space and you have the need to connect mobile or portable equipment, you should consider a wireless router widely.

The availability of space is a variable of weight, because if your equipment is quite far from each other, the use of a wireless network will facilitate the start-up of the network and will make it much more versatile.

Interference can cause the wireless network to fail. Microwaves, cell phones, and radio devices can limit the operation of a wireless network. If your equipment is continually exposed to this type of situation, you should think about using a wired router .

Conclusions

We can conclude, that for many reasons a wireless router is much better than a wireless one. However, your usage needs can modify this conclusion and give you advantages in using a wireless router and a WiFi network. Therefore, we strongly recommend using a wired connection whenever possible and when wireless access is required, a WiFi network. For this, you can acquire a wireless router and as we said at the beginning of the article, disable the WiFi network when you do not use it and work as much as possible with the wired network.
