This Wi-Fi adapter device works like a wired network port on a laptop computer. However, this device uses radio waves instead of a wired Ethernet connection.
Wi-Fi adapters such as the Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter can convert the digital data from a computer into radio waves. The device then transmits this data across a secure connection to a wireless router or access point. A radio connection is then established using the 802.11a/g/n standards. Adherence to these standards allows multiple computers to be efficiently served using a single router/access point. This, in turn, creates a computer network that is completely wireless. Wi-Fi adapters allow users to connect to a network or to the Internet in any place where Wi-Fi is accessible. This technology is now currently taken advantaged of by businesses, such as restaurants, malls and coffee shops in order to attract more customers. These devices also free users from any physical constraint that may prevent them from accessing a network. The Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter and its adapter are provided by the company Atheros.
