How to Setup a Network Using Windows 7

At my workplace, if I need data from other employee’s computer I can tell that person to share it over the network. Printers or other useful devices can be connected over the network so that each computer on network can access it. It reduces hardware cost and thus increases profit of company. There are six easy steps required to follow if we want to setup a network.

Plan Network

There are two types of network, wired and wireless. In wired network each computer is connected by wires where as in wireless connectivity radio waves are used for transaction of data. Wireless networks are advantageous as they give you facility to switch between wired and wireless. It also adds to the portability and thus highly recommended. However, mobility comes at the cost of speed which is less on wireless as compared to that on wired network.

Get Required hardware and ISP

To add computer into the network what is minimum required is router and a network adapter. Router is device which is responsible for good communication between computers over the network. You have to install router and network adapter in each computer you wish to connect to the network. Now days many laptops come are equipped with Network adapter. So for such laptops no external adapter is required. If you wish to connect to internet then an ISP account is essential.

Setup a Router

If it is clearly mention on the router that it is compatible with Windows7 or it shows logo of Winodws7, you can directly connect it with the system with the help of Windows Connect Now. If you can’t fine any compatibility information go for the CD accompanied with router and follow setup procedure.

Connect to Internet

This step is completely optional but highly recommended though. You can connect router to internet by following simple instruction that are available with your ISP. To have internet connection over the network is beneficial.

To connect other devices to network

It is very easy to add device into network if it compatible with Windows7. Your device is compatible if it is mention clearly on device. If it is not, you can make use of ‘Add devices to network’ option available in Winodws7.

Create Homegroup to share data

Sharing of data between different computers is the main aim of network. To establish a Homegroup is the best way to create a home network. You can share devices like printers on this network. It must be ensured that all the computers in the network have Windows7 installed in them. You can also follow information available in Windows7 under “create a HomeGroup’. Network can be set up on computer having different version of Windows by following different procedure. To setup an office network, you must ensure that file and network sharing is turned on.

iOS 4.0 With Multitasking Features for iPhone

Connectivity is the most important factor in this fast paced world of today. The cutting edge technology comes with an option to enable the users to enjoy more user friendly tools. One of the top notch hardware and software manufacturers of IT industry, Apple always plays a vital role in the up gradation of newer technology with a modified idea. As a result iPhone has becomes the most featured product of Apple after its release in 2007. Apple has also released solution software of iPhone named iOS which is the operating system of the iPhone. Last month they updated the software and release iOS 4.0 with new feature which could enhance users comfort. ,especially the multitasking ability of iOS 4.0 adds a great value to the use of that software as well as iPhone.


iOS 4.0 has come into the lime light with its multitasking facility which enables the users to use iPhone for official works, when they are in need of doing several tasks at a time. This operating system is designed especially for the official documentation works and home users as they can get a chance to open as many as new work windows which will confirm faster their work speed.

The multitasking feature enables the users to run third party Apps and switch between them instantly. This can be done without slowing the system. The overall performance of the system is all the same with the multitasking feature where excessive power consumption is not necessary. This feature has no bad effect on the system and battery of iPhone.

Option of different Mode operation

Apps of iPhone can be used in two ways for performing multitasking: running and suspended. iOS 4 tries to keep as many eligible apps running as it can hold in memory at one time; the other apps remain suspended (until purged by iOS 4 or closed by the user).

Switch between Apps and pick up where the program was left

This is a great feature of multitasking ability of iOS 4.0. The users can switch into different functions or windows comfortably. Even they can enjoy the switched off program from where the program were switched off.

Audio in the background

This new feature enables the users to listen to audio from compatible third-party apps while checking email, surfing the web, playing games, and performing other tasks. This can add a great value to the iOS 4.0 multitasking ability.

Task completion in the Background

In fact switching to other tasks without interrupting the on going task is possible with the iOS 4.0. In case of photo uploading or sharing, anyone can do other task while the photo is uploaded or shared.

GPS running with all other tasks

GPS will run continuously in the background which will not only update the user’s position, but also can give a turn-by-turn direction.

The overall effort of Apple to produce “The world’s most advanced mobile operating system” which they claim in their tag line for iOS, is moving in the right direction to enable the users with more comfortably.

Communication Watchdog’s Close Door Meeting With Big Bugs Of Internet

Connectivity is the most important deal in the current world. The world becomes a village when any computer signal  reaches to millions within a fraction of second. This fast connective world is a result of the connectivity through Internet. Thus Internet is evolved as the most powerful media in the present scenario. But as we all know “more power comes with more responsibility”, this may be forgotten by some sections of the media. In order to regulate the whole thing under a uniform law a meeting was held between the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the associated companies. They discussed about the frame and modification of regulation to avoid any controversy of law while applying it in the right context.


FCC Chairman Julius presided the meeting where chief of staff and members of strategic planners of FCC were present to help him. On the other side of the table Broadband providers including AT&T and Verizon, as well large Internet firms Google and Skype, to elevate the misunderstanding between the watchdog and business agency. The most discussed issue was net neutrality rules that would require network operators to treat all content equally.

Background of the discussion

The discussion takes place in a ground of a ruling of U.S. federal court where they raised question about the regulatory agency about their capability of running neutrality regulation over the telecom and broadband sector. The broadband connectors and Internet based firms were emphasizing on a firm law but at the same time they want an assurance of right and equal use of law in every case. The court accused the watchdog authority that they were unable to stop Comcast when they slow down the traffic to a popular file sharing site. This is term as a suicidal step which may greatly hinder the speed of spreading the Internet network all over the country.

What FCC says

FCC chief of staff Eddie Lazarus said the agency held the meeting to “seize an opportunity.” “Today we began a process to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders in an effort to support the process that Congressional leaders have started to examine updating the Communications Act,” Lazarus said.

Washington post correspondent Cecilia Kang mentioned, “Companies have already begun discussing various aspects of possible net neutrality regulations, considering, for example, how carriers could manage traffic on their networks and whether wireless services should be subject to the regulations.”

Whether the meeting is going n for avoiding reclassification of broadband or not, it’s a concern that’s for sure. In this context Lazarus said only that, “this is a way to see what policy consensus exists on most important issues we face.”

New law and proposals

The lawmakers started to make a new draft of communication law. In this context this discussion could place a very vital role. In fact FCC wants to make a new agency for the control broadband connection only, but the business society opposes it strongly showing that this can hamper the effort of neutrality or uniformity in the network.
