It Started Out OK
“All we have to do is get a wireless router, use it to connect our laptops, smart phones, and wireless printer, and then we can throw away all these Ethernet cables and wall connectors.” That’s the promise of wireless to most users, but things don’t always work out the way you think they should.
Wi-Fi holds the possibility of connectivity, convenience, portability, and speed, but it also comes with a few caveats that the user doesn’t necessarily know about (or the vendor conveniently didn’t tell them about). So, you installed a few APs, configured them to the default values that the manufacturer suggests, and you even turned on security. Everybody in the office is happy and you’re saving money on maintenance, especially when equipment has to be moved.
