You’ve got multiple computers on your network but only 1 printer. So what do you do if you want to print from one of the computers that isn’t connected to the printer?
There are 2 options:
Most people do number 1 because they don’t even know number 2 is an option! Setting up option 2 can be a little bit tricky to set up initially, but it saves so much time and hassle once it is done.
What do you do if you want to frequently share files with other people on your network?
There are 3 common options:
Option 1 won’t work with large files at all, is sometimes slow and requires each computer to have it’s own email address.
With option 2 the thumb drives often get misplaced and it’s not a very efficient way of sharing files if it needs to go to multiple computers .
Option 3 is a little tricky to set up initially, but it saves so much time and hassle once it’s done.
This can be a very confusing area for people and the mobile phone carriers don’t help as they muddy the waters by calling their “mobile broadband” service “wireless broadband”. While mobile broadband actually is wireless broadband, to name it that would be the same as calling your mobile phone a “wireless” phone. We feel that this is probably done deliberately in order to take advantage of people’s confusion and sell a product that they couldn’t sell if the customer was properly informed.
Don’t get us wrong, mobile broadband has a purpose, but it is a very limited purpose and in our experience, most people buy it because they think they are buying wireless networking, which is actually a function that mobile broadband lacks. In fact, without some specialised (and sometimes temperamental) equipment, mobile broadband doesn’t do networking at all, so there are many disadvantages to it if what you really wanted was a simple wireless network.
