Why You Should Consider Wireless Routers for Your Home or Business

The wireless routers today are becoming the stars in a business network or residence, but often are the cause of frustration for business and home users,
including those who are not networking gurus in wireless technology.

One of the main reasons why wireless routers can be technology pieces that are hard to grasp is because of their wireless capability. Its wireless signals are subjected to the interference from a lot of things such as its configuration in your home or business as well as from other routers nearby.

The mysterious aspect of wireless networks is not made easy by the manufacturers of these products because of their frenzy in selling products that have unrealistic speeds when it comes to bandwidth and products that are hard for the average person to set up and manage.

It can be a daunting task to sift through and choose which router type would be the best one suited for your needs. Are you looking for a single and less expensive router or that of the dual band and will cost more? Are you considering an upgrade? What benefits can be obtained from an 802.11n router? Will a higher wireless router mean better connectivity to the Internet?

These kinds of questions such as other factors like parental controls, security and other features will be the kind of consideration that you should weigh in when choosing to upgrade or purchase a new router.

The complexity of Wi-Fi technology adds to the problem of choosing a router these days. Wireless capability is trick and is subject to environmental fluctuations and other varying factors. Being in close proximity to other wireless routers will lead to higher risk of signal interference. This is especially true for those that are within the 2.4 GHz band, one of the frequencies that wireless routers utilize when receiving and transmitting data. Household devices, glass partitions and multilevel homes are some of the factors that affect and degrade the performance of wireless devices.

A company will often spend a lot of money in order to hire professionals of wireless networking and to perform surveys to the site in order to determine the right kind of equipment to use and deploy in the network. That is why it is understandable if the home and business owners get frustrated when they do not have the skill of these professionals when looking to set up and manage their wireless networks.

For those who are looking for a router that does not need an upgrade in the near future, consider in choosing one that offers IPv6 support. Although the conversion from IPv4 to IPv6 can be time consuming, routers that have IPv6 support will make it easier for people to keep their networks stable whenever there are ISP transitions to IPv6.

There are also other router types that provide SD car slots as an extra, as well as USB ports for external drive and printer sharing. This includes routers that are coming from Netgear, Cisco and Belkin. Go for routers made from these companies if these are the features you are looking for.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
