Wireless Home Computer

Everyone wants a wireless network. Especially if you have a note book computer and they are Wireless cable router B-G device cool and affordable, they have the advantage of not requiring you to tear - drill - or demolish your home or business, so you can put them virtually any where! It's easy to connect your Wireless Home Network (Wi-Fi) to computers running Windows. In this section we'll discuss the basics of what you need to know to set up and configure your Wireless Home Network. Throughout, we'll point you to detailed information and directions on how to implement your network in the Windows operating systems.

The information here is intended to provide a basic understanding of the things you will need to consider to make it useful and secure Wireless There are only two types of wireless network implementations. While they are variously referred to as hosted vs. peer-to-peer, infrastructure vs. ad-hoc, and managed vs. unmanaged, all of these sets of terms are synonymous and represent the same two types of networks. For simplicity's sake, we'll use the terms "hosted" and "peer to-peer" because those terms are more descriptive of their function in a small SOHO (Small Office or Home Office) network, which is our main focus. A "hosted" network contains one or more separate access points connected directly to an existing network.

These access points are called "gateways" or "wireless routers." This configuration allows wireless devices to access the computers on the existing network, as well as the peripherals and services available on the network such as printers, Wide Area Networks (WAN) or the Internet. A "peer-to-peer" network consists only

 

of devices connected wirelessly.A peer-to-peer network contains no central access point or controller, which means Wireless Computer network each device communicates directly with the other wireless devices in the network. In this configuration, one device can share the information and services available on another device.

For example, you could sit by the pool with your laptop, wirelessly surfing the Internet through the DSL service connected to your desktop computer inside your home office. For this configuration to work, both computers must be turned on.
In corporations or enterprises, more than one hosted network may be connected.

In this complex environment, wireless connectivity can be accomplished in many ways.
We recommend that the IT department that manages the network always implement this type of connection and not only because the possibilities are too numerous to present here, but also because most IT departments are already equipped to handle wireless connections.

Zero Configurations with Windows 2000 or Windows XP Operating Systems

Wi-Fi (wireless) can be installed on nearly any Windows™ system including Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. (Win 95 is problematic with Wi-Fi networks.)

Windows 2000 and Windows XP can automatically detect and help configure your Wi-Fi equipment because many of the important drivers are already built in Previous versions of Windows require  (Win 95-98Se)  device-specific drivers.


Wi-Fi equipment manufacturers supply these drivers along with detailed instructions on how to install the equipment for each operating system. Be sure to follow these instructions carefully to assure a successful connection.

Note that If you are installing an access point on an existing LAN, be sure that the network is operating correctly before installation. These operating systems were specifically designed to be compatible with Wi-Fi. If you have Windows 2000, be sure to upgrade to the latest Service Pack to take advantage of all Wi-Fi features. If your Wi-Fi hardware is compatible with your operating system, just turn off your computer, install the hardware and boot up the computer again.  Your operating system will detect and install your Wi-Fi equipment, and a wizard will launch to help you configure it. Be sure to read the documentation that comes with your Wi-Fi equipment so you will be ready for the questions the wizard will ask. Any drivers or software provided by the manufacturer should be on hand.

4K UHD VS HDTV: Your New TV Set Soon Might Become Obsolete

People have been completely amazed by the increased picture quality in the transition to High Definition Television (HDTV) from the older standard National Television System Committee (NTSC) standards many grew up with. However, that new HDTV set that you just bought might just about to become obsolete. The new 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) televisions are here, taking picture quality to a whole different level. 4K UHD televisions, also known as 2160p TVs, are those whose horizontal display resolutions which have close to 4,000 pixels. Officially an Ultra UHD must have a resolution of at least 3840 x 2160 and an aspect ratio over 16:9. Some UHD sets have even greater resolution and are referred to as 8k UHD or 4320p TVs, but these are quite rare. HDTVs on the other hand typically have pixel resolutions that would occupy a quarter of the area of a 4k UHD TV.

In reality there are several different HDTV standards. There is 720p which has a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 with just less than one megapixel of image resolution. Then there are 1080p HDTVs that have a better resolution of 1920 x 1080, with just over two megapixels of resolution. There are also 1080i HDTVs that use two separate fields to display the picture and can come in either 1440 x 1080 or 1920 x 1080 resolutions. In contrast a 3840 x 2160 4K UHD has a resolution of 8.3 megapixels, about four times as much as the best HDTVs. This represents just under the same magnitude of resolution improvement in going from NTSC to HDTV which was a five fold increase in resolution.

It really is hard to imagine the HDTV picture getting that much better, that is until one view a 4K UHD TV. These 4K UHD will work best for very large screens where resolution matters more in terms of picture clarity. In fact, most theaters have already adopted 4K technology using DLP projectors. The rollout of 4K UHD into the home is happening slower do to the higher price of these TVs and the fact that there is not a lot of existing television programming to support them, yet. Most of the 4K UHD home entertainment units are using DLP projection technology to create the picture. For early adopters of new technologies, a 4K UHD TV could be on your Christmas wish list. While these are probably a little too expensive to be in many homes, especially given the poor economy; however, as prices come down and content is made available that takes advantage of the expanded resolutions, the HDTV will probably go the way of the NTSC TV.

DELL Inspiring i14z-2203sLV 14 Ultra book Review

--------------------------------

Looks like Ali was mistaken in his/her review. The hard drive is actually a hybrid drive that has an SSD acting as a cache to the hard drive. This means the SSD assists in making the hard drive faster, but is not visible in Windows.
It is NOT a standalone SSD. I do not own this product, but it seems like potential buyers will be put off by the first and only negative review, by someone who does not seem to be familiar with certain components. So, the device has two hard drives with three partitions. The SSD drive is actually set up as cache drive to enhance performance.
It appears as though you can change this and run it as a separate drive. I have not done this yet and I may not. But, overall it appears to be a decent laptop. I will say that windows 8 really do need a touch screen to make things faster. But, it is not bad.
This laptop will be going with my daughter to college; I wanted a thin and light machine with a DVD tray. This one appears to hit that all marks for a decent price. But, we will have to see how it pans out.
