A wireless local area network (WLAN) allows a mobile user to establish a wireless connection on a local area network (LAN). With a WLAN software, you can install, manage, and maintain wireless networks for business or personal use. Choosing the best WLAN software often begins with determining your needs and your existing wireless network. You also need to choose one that is intuitive, easy to understand, and does not require a lot of technical background. Some WLAN software solutions can be downloaded for free, but if you need to buy one specific for your needs, you may also consider your budget.

If you simply want to manage the connections, bandwidth restrictions, and other wireless network limits, there are applications specifically designed to do these tasks. Before evaluating the features of certain WLAN software, make sure you have determined your needs first. Once you know what kind of features you are looking for, see if your candidate applications are compatible with your existing wireless network. Read up on your wireless network's specifications before choosing an application to make sure that you are choosing a compatible software for your hardware.

Many individuals need WLAN software to secure their wireless networks and protect them from unauthorized people who want to gain access to their wireless networks and data. If this is your primary reason for acquiring one, it is best to make sure that there are adequate security features in the WLAN software before choosing it for your wireless network. There is also WLAN software that can help you detect and gain access to other wireless networks. If you are always on the move, it's also good to look for an application that shows you all the hotspots in the world before you reach those destinations.

You can choose an application that is easy to install and maintain so you won't have to worry about regularly monitoring your software and your hardware. Most of the popular WLAN software applications feature an installation wizard so even novice networkers can figure out how to install WLAN applications on all kinds of WLAN devices. Whether you have a lot of experience in setting up wireless networks or this is your first time in dealing with things like a WLAN adapter, or a WLAN card, it is often preferable to have an application that requires minimal maintenance. It is also good to look and compare prices before buying one that suits your budget.
