With cables or wireless, wireless. Please when buying a wireless router to speed. The g-standard, 58 Mb, is the most common. Wireless has clear benefits, but failure sensitive. Buy a good router as a cheap alternative can give many headaches. Moreover, there are other ways, such as your network through the main PC, so that in fact the role of router to take, but it ga I ease over. This provides headaches.

Grab the provider delivered Ethernet modem and connect it to the router. Choose the WAN port on the router. Cable Modems are the general problems connecting. The wireless modems can be quite different. There are wireless Ethernet modems that when setting the maximum security loss. Let you have good information. The installation of a wireless router is difficult. For the wireless connection, there are special USB adapters or PCI cards. Note there are several brands that they are compatible.

Each router has its own configuration page, you can view your web browser and the settings of the router can change. For this configuration page to get you the address of the router know. If this local address in the manual, you can find the address by the router to connect via a WAN port is not free. Turn on the router and go to Windows Start, Run. Tap here Cmd and then click Ok. Tap at the end of the line in the black screen in the command ipconfig / all in, with a space between and Ipconfig / all. Press Enter. Then you get all the IP address data.

The IP address of the router in typing in the address bar of Internet Explorer or another browser, you can login to the router. Windows Vista may be different. To do this, click the Network icon in the Network Center. Vista scans the network. Right-click on the displayed Web page and choose router device display. Anyway, log in now with the default password. Often that is admin, unless the instructions indicate otherwise.

Depending on the computer configuration is built after the connection to the router how the Internet between provider and your router will be undertaken. Sometimes some settings of the Internet, the gateway is adapted to that end, most routers an installation wizard, you can use. You can also easily view the network via Start, Run.

Operating System help and support

The mix of applications

We do not recommend that you ignore the applications are using. If you are a graphic designer, working in 3dsmax, you will see many advantages when property has a CPU speed even with all other components such as memory ...

Even so, most people are not using the application form. That is why we need to consider the problem of mixed applications. For applications requiring strict but do not use regularly, you also do not constitute a leadership that CPU must meet.

Issues mixed applications in an angle that can be a burden for the processor even more than one application depth, the processor core application specific. So it is mixed application will create a big difference for the choice of CPU will work how.

Understand your application

Do you know the applications of their work like? Easily notice that, applications will need Word CPU less than Photoshop. In other words, if a user of Photoshop former you like a system has more memory or hard drive more than first complete CPU. Even to the applications in the computer game different, may need to manifold. For example, a shooter may prefer to have a great graphics card.

So take a moment to research the most common applications of how you will be much useful, not only select a set of processors of the best that can modify the system and applications for the best results.

Considering the background tasks

You are using Windows XP or Windows Vista? To consider your Task bar. In my Task bar with 8 icons of the application of lightweight, they are all very useful and necessary. You should also try to review Task manager. Often have large numbers of applications and services running in the background later. Many things are in idle mode, but some other continuously occupied lost a cycle of CPU processing.

Obviously you can really turn off all unnecessary services. But the system is when I do it idle will help you assess the needs of you. Background tasks will not matter for CPU choice but you also need to know to minimize CPU use for this task.

Other users need

If you have other people share a computer, they have their own ID, you may need to consider what they need. Can all you need to do with computers as writing an email, perform a small calculation and web surfing. Wife or husband but you are using software as a serious software such as Photoshop, the child of your preferred gaming machine. What their needs may need to set a good processor for the system, and clearly far beyond the needs of your needs. This shows that not always depend on you.

The less known features in Windows 7

First impressions of the test version of Windows 7 suggest that the new operating system will not cause a landslide. Number seven has a few nice features that enrich the interface. If you can shake 'with the mouse to non-active windows immediately to minimize. Only the selected window is still open. The function is handed over to a full screen application windows to be cleaned up immediately to grasp gadgets on your desktop live.

The Shake feature works only if the Aero interface enabled. Another little discussed feature in Windows 7 is an index that indicates how stable your computer. The Reliability Monitor hides in the new Windows Solutions Center, a component that gives users tools to solve problems. The Reliabilty Monitor delivers a score of 0 to 10 (where'10 'stands for stable) and is based on a measurement by the Ractask component of a long time. A first score appears only after several hours, but longer term there may be a stability review weekly, monthly or even annual basis be requested. A third feature is exposed in the Credential Manager. This is an ingrained 'safe' for log-ins, passwords and certificates - for example, largely similar to the Keychain in Mac OS X.

The first signs of an early Windows 7 feature complete version to observe. It does not last long. Soon is Microsoft's public beta version of the successor to Windows Vista. Windows 7 is the first operating system that is written according to a new protocol. For several components, new features to be completely written before they are added to the overall build. For other components (such as explorer) are features which previously added because they have a major impact on all other parts. In some cases, these features turned off. (but to unlock). This new approach ensures that the quality and number of public build may be limited. Since only complete feature will be added to Microsoft most likely a single Beta build. Normally the latest beta build of Windows the feature complete version, that can be started with the crush of bugs in the Release Candidate versions. Of course this is all highly speculative, because Windows Vista introduces a substantially new code base for many components, which may be more robust than the code bases of previous versions of Windows.
