Wireless Access in the Office
Because a strong, stable wireless connection is important, we recommend only business or enterprise grade wireless access points.
If you are opting to use Wireless computers (laptops and/or Tablet PCs) you must have a dedicated Wireless Access Point (WAP) in your office that will transmit a signal to the wireless computers and enable them to connect to the server and network. As with reception on a cell phone, it is very important that the wireless signal be strong and dependable so you can maintain a signal throughout the day and work uninterrupted. If the WAP is not adequate and the signal is weak or intermittent, you will lose connection with the server and network and this will interrupt your use of the system and lead to delays and frustrations using the system. Because a strong, stable wireless connection is important, we recommend only business or enterprise grade wireless access points.
Currently Sonicwall based wireless access points are not compatible with Office Practicum
Business Grade Wireless Access Points
- Dedicated wireless access point hardware (this cannot be part of a firewall/router combo).
- Cisco, Linksys, Motorola are preferred hardware vendors. Ensure you are selecting business grade WAPs - Ex. Cisco Aironet, Linksys E4200)
Tip: It is important to have an experienced technician install the proper access points.
