Setting up your home network to be wireless can take some time and patience. One of the most common ways people connect their laptop or desktop computer directly to their router is by using an ethernet cable, but there are other methods as well. Setting up a new Asus router for use with Wi-Fi access points is just one of them! With this tutorial on how you can set it all up yourself, you might find that configuring your own personal hotspot will save both money AND frustration in the end!
What is a wireless access point and why do I need one
A wireless access point is a device that allows wireless devices to connect to a wired network. Wireless devices can only connect to each other wirelessly, which means there can’t be any connection with the main network. A wireless access point is a device that allows these wireless devices to have this connection and be able to connect on the same network.
If you don’t already have a wireless router then you’re going to need one now because it’s going to be your wireless access point as well. There are many reasons why you may need to change your wireless router into a wireless access point, which is listed below:
-The router has stopped working
-The antenna doesn’t work anymore
-An ISP requires Ethernet cable protection for their customers
-The wireless router is too old or obsolete for modern home internet connections
