We live in the Wireless networking world. Even the thought of any disadvantages being associated with Wireless Networking comes as a surprise to most of its benefactors. A discussion about these disadvantages may act as handy information and thus become useful in solving any of your networking problems at hand. Following is a review of the disadvantages:
Setting up cost
The setting up cost of a Wireless Network is up to four times higher than that of a Local Area Network. Therefore if a business cannot afford to spare this much amount for the installation of the wireless network then its installation would not be possible. Covering Area

Slower in Speed
Wireless networks are generally slower than wired networks. They may actually be up to ten times slower than the wired local area networks.
