The core function of this product is to provide physical access to a networking medium as well as to a low level addressing system. This is through the use of MAC addresses. Yet, another important factor to think about it the Ethernet since this enables all network communications possible. Ethernet has been around since the mid-1990s. It is noted that Ethernet network cards contain an exclusive forty-eight bits serial number known as a MAC address. Principally, this is saved in ROM and is carried on the card. Unique MAC addresses are very important, as it is a requirement for every computer that operates on an Ethernet network. These addresses are actually bought separately from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. They are also the one in charge of assigning addresses to each card at the time of production. Since wireless signal quality is one of the most difficult problems to encounter, especially if you’re out of range from any wireless Ethernet card, there is a need to ensure a line-of-sight from the wireless router to the wireless computers. User s should take note that to have good signal quality, they need to be able to see the router from its location.
