Wireless Broadband allows you to connect to the Internet without having to connect your computer to the modem. What you are doing, connect the wireless router to the modem, then wirelessly connect your computer to the router via a wireless card installed on a computer or in many cases when you buy a new laptop. Despite the fact that many people think wireless broadband is not the same as mobile broadband. The radius of the wireless broadband circuit is approx. 100 meters away from your router, while mobile broadband is available wherever you are on your mobile phone.
