Wi-Fi Lanka.

In Sri Lanka everybody knows about Wi-Fi. Even a small kid at the age of 10 can explain you how to use it and access other gadgets or internet through a wifi connection. Most of the people are using Smartphone's from Samsung Galaxy, HTC, Sony Xperia, BlackBerry and iPhone in Sri Lanka and access internet connection through the freely available wifi connectivity. But the main thing is that 99% of people using this facility don't know what it is actually and how it functions.

Like Hi-Fi the name Wi-Fi was introduced to call the WALAN which is difficult to pronounce as a word. It came in to the market in 1997 and was adopted by the Apple Inc in the year 1999.

Now in the year 2014 almost all the gadgets can work through this wireless local area network (WLAN) using radio waves. Before it was computers and Laptop owners who were looking for it gain the access to their networks. But now when people are buying new gadgets like digital cameras, video recorders, video-game console, digital audio player, head phones, Smartphone or tablet look for the Wi-Fi facility in that gadget.

It may have technical flows if the user doesn't configure it properly and it can provide signals to around 32 feet's in the indoor sector and 95feets in the outdoor sector. You can make the signal range more with suitable antennas that can be fitted to your router modem.

Get connected to the internet with your Smartphone without the use of a wireless modem. This is called as tethering where Apple gadget users call it as Personal Hotspot.

The Smartphone supports to connect your PC, Laptop or Tablet to internet through the USB cable or via Bluetooth or wifi connectivity.
Which is better? Using it through the Tethering, USB, Bluetooth or Wifi?
