What is local area network

A local-area network (LAN) is a computer network that spans a relatively small area, it is only consists of a few devices that are all connected to each other.

How to connect two or more computer in your own network

Things you needed if you want to connect three or more computer in your network

• At least three or more computer
• A Straight Through Cables (If you use third devices like modem, router, switch, or hub)
• A Modem / Router / or Switch (as long as they have many RJ45 port is fine)

What is wireless local area network

A wireless local-area network (WLAN) uses radio waves to connect devices such as computer or mobile phone to the Internet and to your business network and its applications.

Wi-Fi is the basic networking tech that lets you link your devices up to the internet without the use of wires. Instead, your router sends out a radio wave signal via an antenna, which your gadgets can then connect to. It's super simple and a lot less hassle than faffing around with ethernet cords.

How to setup your Wi-Fi

If you want devices connected to your network wirelessly - the best choice for smartphones, tablets, streaming sticks, and so on - you'll need to set up Wi-Fi.

Your router or network switch's manual will tell you how to enable Wi-Fi on it, so follow those instructions. But remember to make sure your Wi-Fi is as secure as it can be.

Your router or network switch will provide you with a default SSID (the name of your network), WiFi Key ( Your WiFi password), and login info. To keep things secure, it's best to change all of these.

Log on to your router using the router login info - depending on your router and your provider, you'll either need to do this via a web browser on your computer, or by going through the network settings as above.

• Change the SSID to a custom name to differentiate it from your neighbours' networks
• Change the Wi-Fi password to something unique, preferably including lower case letters, upper case letters, numbers, and symbols
• Change the router login password to something unique too - different from the Wi-Fi password, of course
• Pick the most advanced security tech - currently WPA2.

You may need to restart your computer to see the changes take effect.
