Meetinghouse wireless Internet benefits
All content on this page is moving to LDS Help Center under the Meetinghouse Technology topic. This page was supposed to be deleted at the end of October 2012.
The main (and obvious) benefit of wireless Internet is that you're not limited by having to physically plug your device into the firewall in order to have Internet and network access. Some of these benefits include:
- The physical layout of your network will not be limited by whether a wire can reach a location. This makes it easier to have computers in multiple parts of the building and to have them spread out throughout your building (this may also be limited by the strength of the wireless signal).
- More mobility with laptop computers and other mobile devices.
- Because no direct Ethernet connection is needed for wireless connection, the number of devices you connect is not limited by the number of physical ports in the meetinghouse firewall.
