The Different Types of Mobile Wi-Fi Gadgets and How to Buy Them

Mobile Wi-Fi gadgets are indispensable devices that help connect a computer to its network and the internet. Although a wired ethernet cord provides more secure connection, in reality, Wi-Fi gadgets offer more convenience. They come in different types, each has its own pros and cons you should keep in mind.

USB Wi-Fi Adapters

Of all the variants of Wi-Fi adapters in Singapore, they are the most common and the easiest to install. Just plug one into any available port and install its drivers if your computer’s operating system has them; otherwise, you can download them on the product’s website. In most cases, USB adapters use at least one port but there are some models that are equipped with a larger casing, blocking nearby ports. So, you better choose one that won’t interfere other ports.

Desktop Motherboard

This is integrated into the motherboard and functions similarly to USB Wi-Fi adapters. They don’t take up much space, giving you an option to install other peripherals. When choosing a desktop motherboard, look for one that includes antennas as they provide better signal strength and avoid interference.

Integrated Adapters

Smartphones and tablets in Singapore come with built-in adapters that conveniently provide wireless connectivity. However, they are difficult or even impossible to upgrade, making it hard to keep up with wireless standards.

PCIe Wireless Cards

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express or PCIe slots allow you to install expansion cards that provide your computer additional features. Examples of expansion cards are sound cards, graphics cards, and wireless cards. PCIe wireless cards are normally integrated into the motherboards of computers, offering a solution to wireless connectivity. Once they are set up, they enable wireless internet access from anywhere. So, when you have a desktop computer, you don’t have to place it next to Wi-Fi routers or modem. Instead, you can put it in any room around the house, giving you better flexibility when creating a home network.

Things to Consider When Looking for Mobile Wi-fi Gadgets

Maximum Data Rate

When buying Wi-Fi gadgets, you need to consider not only the hardware but also the maximum data rate. A low-end Wi-Fi adapter with a faster data rate of 15 Mb/s, for instance, can outperform a top-of-the-line adapter with a sluggish data rate of 1 Gb/s. A fast data rate not only means a quick and seamless browsing but also high-speed file transfers. Aside from that, if you want faster file transfers, try to look for Wi-Fi gadgets with a USB 3.0 support, instead of USB 2.0.

Antenna

If your computer is in the same room as the router, then you can use any compact Wi-Fi adapter. Otherwise, a Wi-Fi adapter with an antenna is recommended to receive internet connectivity even if you are farther away from the router.

Compatible with wireless security protocols

Wireless security protocols like WEP, WPA, and WPA2 provide encryption to further secure your wireless network. Always go for a Wi-Fi gadget that supports all three protocols. You can also choose a model that is only compatible with WPA2 since it comes with the latest hardware and has the most advanced encryption.
