Offer tips to connect Windows 2000 operating system to a wireless network.
Windows 2000 is one of the Windows operating systems designed by Microsoft. Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Professional are some of the editions in the Windows 2000 version. This operating system is more stable than the Windows NT and Windows 98 versions. Active Directory is the main feature included in this operating system and it is useful in establishing a virtual network connection in a large business organization. A wireless network is a type of network wherein radio signals and not cables are used for connections. File sharing with wireless network is simpler than what it is in wired and other types of networks. Once you set up a wireless network in a computer, it’s easy to share resources such as printers. You don’t need to move the device from one system to another to print an e-mail from one system; you just need to activate the wireless connection. Mobility and reliability are some of the advantages of a wireless computer network.
Tips to set up wireless computer network:
- Choose wireless device
- Connect device
Choose wireless device
To start a wireless connection, you need to select any of the proper wireless equipment that you want to connect to the system that is running with Windows 2000 as its operating system. You can either select a wireless adaptor suitable for Windows 2000 or any such tools through which you can connect to the wireless network. The wireless adaptor is useful to connect the system to a router and thus it helps to reach the access point.
The wireless device that you select to access the network connection is to be connected to the system with Windows 2000 as its operating system. All the physical settings needed to connect the wireless device are to be configured correctly in the system. This includes modem connection, router, and all those important network devices. If you currently have the system connected directly to your modem, you need to unplug the network cable from the back of your system and plug it into the port labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN on the back of your router. If you do not have any system connected to the network, you need to connect one end of a network cable into the modem and the other end to the port.
A wireless driver is necessary to access the wireless network in a system. You need to install any of the Windows 2000 compatible network drivers from any of the trusted sources. This driver is necessary for the wireless device to be recognized by the operating system. After all this, you can connect the system to the network. After connecting all these things, you need to configure the wireless network by adjusting the features, the driver settings etc.
