An internet gateway goes between your computer and the raw unthrottled power of the internet. It’s like a power transformer: those canisters on the sides of telephone poles. It takes the high-voltage bandwidth of the internet and makes it accessible in your home. DSL gateways do this by converting the signal from your phone jack and interpreting the digital information. DSL stands for “Digital Subscriber Line.” Cable internet does this in another way using the cable network, and satellite internet does it yet another way. Carrier pigeons are the internet gateway of the last several hundred years.
Without an Internet gateway in your home, you’re limited to accessing the internet by leeching off public Wi-Fi or your neighbor’s unsecured network. With an Internet gateway installed in your home, you’ll be able to access it day or night. That might be a good or bad thing depending on your personality. But we’re not here to judge – just to install your internet gateway. So if you need your internet gateway installed or repaired, call Nerds On Call Computer Repair Portland!
