• Parents won’t upgrade WiFi?

    Best answer: A local network is called a LAN, Ethernet was twice as fast as Wi-Fi until Wi-Fi Mesh arrived;

    That uses both of the free frequencies , 2.4 and 5 and all of the channels allocated which is a lot and so is much better. Regards, Bob UK.

    Best answer: To get WiFi, you need to buy a wireless router designed for home use. Power it up and configure it as you want it and it will give you WiFi.

    If you want access to the Internet, which is a service that can be carried over a WiFi connection or a wired connection such as Ethernet, then you need to sign up with an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Some ISPs will supply a modem and a router for use with their service. (A modem is a device to convert the analogue connection from the ISP into a digital connection required by the router.)

    Remember, WiFi and the Internet are not the same thing. You can have a wired connection to the Internet without WiFi, and you can WiFi without any access to the Internet. Many people do not understand this and unfortunately seem to believe that WiFi and Internet mean the same thing.

    I hope this helps.

  • Can using an employer's WiFi allow them to see your browsing history?

    I have to switch my home internet connection to an employer-provided WiFi connection in order to use my laptop at work. But does this allow them to see what I do online? If so, can/does this only happen when I'm on their connection, or will it also work when I'm home and on my own WiFi connection?

    My office is an outpatient mental health clinic. My therapists need remote access to the LAN network there to access Therapist Helper, which is installed on a main computer and shares data over the LAN using a Helper Server Administration tool. My CEO doesn't want people directly remote accessing computers, just for the data to be able to pass between computers, and has left it to me to find out how to get the computers to talk to one another in order to be able to use remote computers as Workstations for the Helper software. (So that therapists can update their schedules on the go, mostly) The Helper team is working on a Cloud based solution, but it's not nearly ready yet . Can anyone help me to connect to my office's LAN so that I can do the same with my therapists' computers?

  • Should I buy a second router for my online gaming experience?

    Best answer: You won't need to buy a whole new router, just buy a Powerline Ethernet kit, it'll extend your wired internet as far as the far corners of your house.

  • So, what's the best way to keep Big Brother off your computer?

    Best answer: Use a VPN (virtual private network) which encrypts data to and from your computer will be a great improvement. Opera does this for free, various other browsers will charge you but may be better. A VPN will also allow you to be in any location in the world, so if you wished to watch Fox news from Europe for... show more

    A VPN will also allow you to be in any location in the world, so if you wished to watch Fox news from Europe for example, without a VPN saying you are in the USA, you will get a "not available" message.

  • Will plugging an Ethernet cable to my computer make the wifi faster with satellite internet?

    Best answer: It will make the connection from your PC to your router faster (and more reliable).
    However as the router connects to satellite internet, you're probably out of luck - it's intrinsically slow due to the way it works (it's more the latency really).

  • What would be the easiest way to get wi-fi in my man cave/garage.?

    What would be the easiest way to get wi-fi in my man cave/garage. It is out of range of my router even with an extender. I do have an ethernet cable and a switch to run a desktop and a playstation. Is there a device made for this or can I just hook up another router to my switch?
