Wireless or Wired?

It’s interesting to us that we usually get calls in short time frames from multiple companies involving similar issues.

The past couple weeks it’s been wireless.  What we hear:  Our connections drop.  The wireless seems really slow.  I have to keep my laptop in “just-so” position to get a signal.

We’ve researched and field-tested more wireless devices than we care to think about.  And we’ve tested them in so many different environments we know what’s best and what’s not.  So here’s the caveat:  Some apps do not like wireless at all.  Mostly database apps and accounting programs like Quickbooks, Peachtree, etc.  CAD apps should be wired too.  If you’re looking to just get to the internet, that’s easy.  You could probably do it with a kite string or carrier pigeon.  But a business should always have a wired infrastructure as its backbone.  Wireless is awesome, and Computer Wrangler can help you get the most of it, but keep your heavy duty apps on wired.

Networks – Wireless vs. Wired

So, we were troubleshooting a building contractors network the other day.  They were experiencing flaky internet and server access.  When we dug in we saw the backbone of the network was wireless and only the server had a wired connection.  We really didn’t have to look much further.

There’s been much hype over the last few years about a wireless world and how awesome it will be when we can connect everywhere.  We agree and there is a place for that but it’s nOT at the backbone of your business network.  That concept is more designed for non-serious consumer use and some lighter business applications.  You might call it a toy compared to a tool.

In every case, you will get faster and more reliable performance from having your business wired.

We could go into the tech details but suffice it to say that almost all business software vendors like QuickBooks or Sage/Peachtree, Amicus, Avimark, Eclipse, etc. specify a wired network.

And when it comes to your company’s performance, that’s no joke.

Wired or Wireless??

Our industry continues to move toward wireless connections to the network, to the internet.  And who wouldn’t like to get rid of that cable jungle under their desk?

Historically of course things have needed a cable to connect them.  And we like wireless ‘cuz it’s like being free of a tether to any certain location.  But still today many applications run better over a wired network, and faster.  The prime example is a database app which might be CRM (Customer Relationship Management like we talked about last week), or maybe video editing apps, some cloud apps.  Many are not very tolerant of even a short blip of connection drop.  You wouldn’t notice this so much just browsing the internet or checking email.  But think about an app that needs to have uninterrupted connection to its sharepoint (i.e. a server) and it’s trying to go over a wireless connection similar to your cell phone.  Oops, under a bridge, dropped call.  App crash.  If you’ve ever sat and watched wireless signals (what we do with our Friday nights) you’d see they fluctuate up and down, grow and fade.

And wireless is getting faster, but still no match for a wired connection.  More speed and more stability.  And then we see fiber optics coming at us fast, wired at the speed of light.  So if you’re in your office and you don’t need to move from room to room, get a wired connection and increase your productivity.

Use wireless when you’re on the move.

Happy computing!
