      How to Build a USB WiFi Antenna

      A USB WiFi antenna is a device that provides a computer with access to the Internet when in range of a WiFi access point. It also refers to a USB-based wireless adapter that also provides a computer with Internet access but connects to specific wireless routers rather than public WiFi access points. USB WiFi antennas

      802.11g

      802.11g is one of the standards used for high speed wireless networks, commonly known as Wifi. This standard was created by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) in June of 2003 and uses a 2.4 to 2.5 gigahertz radio frequency to send and receive data from one device to another. There are several

      How to Reset a Netgear Router

      Netgear routers are some of the most popular routers in the world, providing both residential and commercial users with wireless networks that are accessible from a wide variety of mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and even desktop computers that are outfitted with a wireless adapter (which Netgear also sells). Netgear routers are available

    • WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

      WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

      Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the encryption algorithm built into the 802.11 (Wi-Fi) standard. WEP encryption uses the RC4 stream cipher with 40 or 104 bit keys and a 24 bit initialization vector. WEP Key Generation Most 802.11 devices allow WEP keys to be entered using an ASCII passphrase or in hexidecimal format. The conversion

      CDMA-2000 1xRTT

      CDMA-2000 1xRTT is a 3G wireless technology based on the CDMA platform. The 1x in 1xRTT refers to 1x the number of 1.25MHz channels. The RTT in 1xRTT stands for Radio Transmission Technology. The CDMA-2000 1xRTT protocol was developed by Qualcomm. CDMA-2000 1xRTT is a CDMA version of the IMT-2000 standard which was developed by

    • TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)

      TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)

      TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) is part of a draft standard from the IEEE 802.11i working group. TKIP utilizes the RC4 stream cipher with 128-bit keys for encryption and 64-bit keys for authentication. TKIP is an enhancement to WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) security. TKIP enhances WEP by adding a per-packet key mixing function to de-correlate
