Incompatibility between devices
Wireless networking is a technology that enables two or more computers to communicate using standard network protocols, but without network cabling. Radio signals are used to connect the computer to the network. Wireless network problems can arise due to incompatibility between different devices. If you are trying to run devices made by different manufacturers on the same wireless network, they will use different protocols for communication. As a result problems will arise.
Your Lenovo ThinkCentre M58p Ultra Small Form Factor Desktop can be connected to the network using radio waves. However, with the wireless network comes the issue of security. Anybody can try to hack into a wireless network, since it is open and can hijack all your secret business data. You should take appropriate steps after installing the wireless network software to secure your network.
Different devices made by different vendors can be connected by routing communications through other devices like routers. And also while setting up the router in the Lenovo ThinkCentre M58p, you need to make sure that you have entered the correct username and password. In order to provide security for your wireless network set the Windows firewall on. Firewall monitors all the incoming and outgoing network connections in your desktop. It also helps the users to block undesired connections.
