Ever wonder how wireless networks work? All wirelss networks use radio waves instead of wires to transmit data between computers. Here’s how:
Binary Code (1s and 0s) and Morse Code (dots and dashes)
All computers transmit information digitally, using binary code: ones and zeros. This translates well to radio waves, since those 1s and 0s can be represented by different kinds of beeps. These beeps are so fast that they’re outside the hearing range of humans.
It works like Morse code, which is a way to transmit the alphabet over radio waves using dots (short beeps) and dashes (long beeps). …
