Welcome to Megganet > Wireless connections
Sometimes Wi-Fi is referred to as Wifi or wireless networking.
Wi-Fi is a standard wireless networking technology used to connect Wi-Fi enabled devices to each other. Most commonly, it is used to connect a broadband router to a Laptop.
Wifi networks can either be "open", such that anyone can use them, or "closed", in which case a password is needed. An area blanketed in wireless access is often called a wireless hotspot.
All Megganet routers are supplied password protected to prevent unauthorised access.
