Always-On Wireless Internet
Wireless Internet Access uses high-frequency radio technology to transmit and
receive data to and from your home or business. There's no telephone line and
no dialing; you're always connected. A small radio transceiver is mounted on
your home or office building that establishes the connection with one of our
A network cable is run from the radio transceiver to a small power injector in
your home or office. You simply plug the network connector on the power
injector into your computer's network interface card and you're on the air!
You can even connect your entire home or office network to the Internet using
the same radio transceiver.
We realize that many homeowners associations are concerned about the
appearance of external antennas. Fox Valley Internet has selected a radio
transceiver that is so small (11.75"H X 3.4"W X 1.1"D) it's hardly noticeable.
In addition, in the interest of ensuring that broadband Internet access is
made available to the masses, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has
passed a ruling that allows wireless Internet access antennas to be installed
even in areas where homeowners association's rules prevent other types of
antennas. A copy of the FCC document detailing this ruling is available at
