"Person to Person - Satisfaction and Service are Our Business"
Networking for Dummies!
This past month in our office we set up a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
a.k.a. a "Wireless Access Point" (WAP). The steps involved were fairly easy and I
thought since many of us now have more than one computer in our homes and
offices, I would share our experience with you to help you understand the
potential of wireless.
There are several companies that manufacture WAPís. The two we decided to
- Linksys Dual-Band Wireless A+G Access Point:
- NetGear Prosafe Dual Band Wireless VPN Firewall:
Because we wanted everyone who might come to our office with a wireless
enabled laptop to be able to access our network, (subject to appropriate
security measures) we selected a multi-band WAP that does 802.11 A, B & G.
The difference in the band is the speed through the air to the WAP from your
wireless enabled desktop or laptop.
- 802.11 B is 11 Megabit
- 802.11 A is 50 Megabit
- 802.11 G is 100 Megabit
Unless you are hooked directly to a fiber connection the difference in speed
makes little difference because your
connection to the Internet acts as a bottle-neck, but it is fun to know that it is SUPER FAST
through the air!
Next month we will talk about which one we purchased and why, as well as how
to install your own WAP.

Happy Surfing From Your Friends at FullNet!
My name is Sherri Bramwell. I am sure that I have spoken with many of you
since I started here at FullNet as the accounts receivable manager in April of
1999. Since I started, my duties have expanded to include payroll, human
resources and accounts payable. When trying to determine what my title currently
is my supervisor couldnít even give me an answer. We finally decided on
assistant controller. Working at FullNet has been one of the greatest
experiences of my life. I have met many wonderful people and I truly enjoy every
person that works for the organization. I have come to think of them more as
family then coworkers.
I am currently working on my Masters in Business Administration at Southern
Nazarene University. If everything goes as planed, I will complete my course
work in June of this year. I have an eight-year-old daughter named Brianna who
is the joy and love of my life. I spend most of my spare time at the local gym
in Yukon, where I live. I enjoy running, lifting weights, and kickboxing. My
favorite time of year is football season. You will find me in front of the TV
every Saturday cheering on my beloved Sooners and every Sunday rooting for my up
and coming Dallas Cowboys.
