Latency Latency on wireless networks can be affected by several factors. Wireless communication operates in half-duplex (shared, two-way communication). Devices can both send and receive, but not at the same time. Therefore, devices must take turns using the transmission channel. Typically, once a device begins receiving a signal, it must wait for the transmitter to stop transmitting before replying.

An unstable wireless network signal can increase the processing that is performed on the signal by both the hardware and software. Troubleshooting Network Connectivity 0:00-13:38 In this demonstration, we're going to look at some tools and some methodologies that you can use to troubleshoot network connectivity issues. Now this Windows 10 system that we're working with here has major network connectivity issues and I know that for two reasons. First of all if I look at my icon down here in the Notification area, it's got a red X on it and if I hover over it, it tells me that thenetwork interface is not connected and no network connections are available. I can verify that by opening up Internet Explorer and it should say, "Hey, I can't go anywhere" and it does, it says, "You're not connected to a network, sorry, can't get you any information." So we know that we've got an issue. Now one of the tools you can use in this scenario is the troubleshooting utility that's provided within the network and sharing centers. So if I come down here to my network icon in the Notification area, right-click and click on Open Network and Sharing Center.Notice that there's an option right here to Troubleshoot problems, if I click on it, I'm prompted to specify what exact type of problem I'm currently having. Am I having a problem with Internet connectivity? Actually I am but that's not the real issue, it's not that I'm able to connect to my local network and then can't go out on the Internet. It's the fact that I can't connect to the network at all. So this one might fix the problem I'm actually not 100% sure. But it really doesn't represent the exact issue, I'm not having an issue with shared folders either. I'm not having a problem with HomeGroupsconnectivity. What I am having a problem with is this one right here, the network adapter itself. It's not connecting to the wired network so let's click on Network Adapter and it tells us that this option will find and fix problems with wireless and other network adapters including wired like the one that I'm using here. Click Next, and we'll go ahead and let it try to figure out what the problem is and it found a problem, what's the issue? The Ethernet adapter is currently disabled, that's why we can't connect. Now you could come down here as well and click on View detailed information to find out more info about the problem but this one is pretty straight forward so we're not going to do that. So at this point I have a couple of different options for fixing the problem. One would be to go in and manually fix it myself or I can use this option right here to just let the troubleshooting go and fix the problem for me. I'm lazy so I think that sounds

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
