Both a WiFi connection and an ethernet cable allow your device to connect to your router and create a local network.
If the router is connected to the internet (by paying for service from an internet provider) then all the wired and wifi devices on the router will have internet.
Can I get WiFi without Internet provider?
The only way to connect to “The Internet” is through an Internet Service Provider (ISP) on a service plan much like one would sign up for electricity or telephone phone service. So, yes, “you can get WiFi without internet”, and the above answer explains how that is possible.
Do you need an Internet provider to use a wireless router?
Depending on your internet service provider (ISP), you may need to buy a router, a router and separate modem, or a router-modem. Nearly all ISPs use either DSL or fiber for their service, which requires signal conversion by a modem. Most modern routers have modems built-in, so you only need one device.
Is the Internet and WiFi the same thing?
There is a lot of difference between WiFi and the Internet. You can be connected to the internet via an Ethernet cable or a WiFi router. A WiFi an acronym for Wireless Fidelity, usually allows the user to be connected to a network without any physical connection.
Can you get Internet for free?
It’s a little-known fact, but many of the major internet service providers have low-cost internet programs. You might be able to pick up some “free” internet by bundling services, like TV and phone. You may be able to get some free wifi if your mobile phone carrier has hotspots. Again, definitely worth a phone call.
