-**Information on this page is outdated.** ​2 tiers of wireless ​cards are available as of recent version. Maximum strength is 16 for tier 1 and 400 for tier 2 (default values). Wireless packets can be lost, with the chance being higher the larger is distance between sender and receiver is. On top of that, tier 1 can't receive packages from tier 2 card when the distance exceeds 16 (default values). ​+There are 2 tiers of wireless ​card. Maximum strength is 16 for tier 1 and 400 for tier 2 (default values). Wireless packets can *not* be lost but a may be out of range. On top of that, tier 1 can't receive packages from tier 2 card when the distance exceeds 16 (default values).

 +The tier 1 wireless card can only send and receive wireless packets, it does not use the wired network. Tier 2 wireless cards transmit both wired and wireless packets.
  
 This is an upgrade to [[item:​lan_card|normal network cards]] that allows wireless sending of network messages in addition to normal ones. This is an upgrade to [[item:​lan_card|normal network cards]] that allows wireless sending of network messages in addition to normal ones.
  
-Make sure to set the signal ​strength ​or no wireless packet will be sent, but keep in mind that sending wireless messages requires energy (configurable)The higher the strength the more energy is required ​to send the messageThe strength is equivalent to the distance the message can travel. The hardness of blocks in the path is subtracted from the strength. Some randomness is applied to the strength.+Signal ​strength ​can be adjustedLow strength ​reduces ​the distance the packets can travel and reduced the power it costs to send themBy default, the strength is max.
