Wireless Router Reviews – Advice on Choosing Your Next Wireless Router

Wireless router just packed up? Tired of endless wireless router reviews? Maybe you just got faster Internet access and want a beefier device for all those must have movies, new tracks and everything else. Relax – in this article I’m going to give you some pointers on looking for the right piece of kit at the right price.Did you know the best wireless router is not necessarily the cheapest? I’ll show you the quickest and most economical way to achieve those lightning quick movie streaming and faster iPod downloads without any hassle.So where do we start? What is a wireless router and why do I need it? It’s not rocket science – a wireless router allows you to access the Internet via your broadband Internet connection and your (yours, your partners, your family / flat-mates etc), laptop, PC, Mac, iPod, PS3, Wii, iPad or whatever you want to connect.Making that happen quickly, hassle-free and reliably is our goal however I’m sure you won’t want just anyone able to grab your connection, maybe impersonate you, nab your credit card details, personal details or whatever you hold most dear on your computer so we need to ensure that up-to-date security is a must have. Questions I won’t be answering in this article are those from a technical perspective such as “how do I configure routers?” – there are plenty of articles on that if you really want it.So what is the first step? Well good quality reviews from the coal-face are a must as well as some pointers to the best products and where to get them. It’s hard to imagine a world without wireless routers and networking now but not so long ago it was the stuff of science fiction and the technology continues to develop quickly – it doesn’t means its easy to pick the right one.There are many different types of router on the market for different needs – we’ll concentrate for now on the home / small office market. As with most things in life there is a range of prices depending on requirements – everything from “get going quickly” to models that will back up your data and probably wash your car… for a price.In order to stay above the wave of hype we can start by looking at your usage. Are you just wanting to surf in the living room or on the deck? Do you want easy set up or are you prepared to wade in? Are you a gamer or run a business? Features such as traffic prioritisation, virtual servers or VPN support will appeal more but may have a higher price tag (not always though!).A basic yardstick though is that the more features a router has the more expensive it will be to buy. At the bottom end if you have older laptops with maybe 802.11b or g wireless cards (more than 3 years old likely) you are likely to probably only need a basic router. E.g. Tenda Wireless-N150 could be a quick option with just b or g connectivity turned on.A slight bit of technical knowledge – don’t worry its painless and may save you a few pennies! Older 802.11b and 802.11g devices use the 2.4GHz wireless bandwidth while newer 802.11n can use 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands – the latter band is better for throughput-intensive networking such as gaming or movie streaming. End of technical bit.Your basic laptop will not benefit from a flashy new router but can get away with a single band 2.43Ghz N router – it is backwards compatible – I’ll show you a quick way to set it all up in a later article – something like the Cisco E1000 may fill this niche. However if you have a new laptops then looking at one that handles both bands is a better bet (don’t worry the DLink DIR-825 can do all this for you!).If you have a Mac, iPad etc though looking at an Apple router may be a good bet.SecurityNext I’ll be looking at security and a few other features you need and some you don’t! As we saw previously it is not too hard to get up and running with a wireless router but what about the bad guys out to hack our credit cards and infect our PCs? How do we stop them? Do I really want to let my neighbour leech all my bandwidth? What if my credit card details go missing? How do I stop it before it happens?Well it certainly can happen – I secured the wireless network for a friend – not long afterward his neighbour said “looks like we’d better get our own broadband connection now…”. A little can take you a long way – security need not be a hassle by following these simple tips: –
Ensure you set a password for your wireless network – the router setup on your device should prompt you for a password – ensure you enter something only you would know and always follow good security password advice – Google “good passwords” for more information.
Don’t connect your router to the Internet until you have set the password!
If you wish to set access control for your children ensure you buy a router with access controls – for example DLink DIR-825. Access controls could restrict what sites certain users can look at as well as what times of day they can use the Internet (stopping bleary eyed teens staying up for an all-nighter on Call of Duty!)
Guest access is a great feature for home and small business users – you can give access to the Internet (but not your files ) to visitors.All this can be undone if you fail to follow basic guidelines on connected wireless devices, e.g. regular anti-virus updates, keeping up to date with security patches (e.g. for Windows machines using Windows Update) and never writing down your password on a post-it on the laptop!So to summarise in those immortal words – “Don’t Panic” but don’t close your eyes and you should be fine.RangeWant to surf in your garden? Get iTunes in the kitchen? Watch films in the bath? Well maybe you do want to stream movies in the bath?What should you look at when selecting a router to meet this criteria? Routers can only work as far as they can project their wireless signals – this is major issue if you choose the a router with poor performance in this area (unless you live in a small flat of course!). If access in your favourite location for surging (garden, potting shed etc) is out because you scrimped on features then it could be money down the drain.Look at range as a key feature if you have thick walls or a couple of floors between you and your favoured surf spot – key to range is the router aerials (antennas to US readers) these are either external (sticks poking out of the back of the trouter) or internal – external usually is much better but internal looks better and is improving all the time. For example, Sitecom WL-341 has no external aerials whereas the DLink DIR-655 has 4.Since you won’t – probably – be displaying the router on your mantelpiece choose the router with the best performance rather than on looks. What use a photo frame if you can’t get reliable access? If you have a small residence with plasterboard walls then an internal antenna may well be sufficient – key is to make sure of your vendors return policy if trouble develops – sites such as Amazon and JohnLewis.com excel in this score. Is it really worth saving a little if they won’t give a refund or exchange?Whilst external aerials mounted on a wall can be used they will be expensive compared to your router – a better option may be to look at wireless devices using your home electric network (or powerline networking) e.g. Netgear WGXB102 (many other similar brands available) – just hook a cable from your router into this and plug it into the wall – plug another device into your desired area and – voila – you have wireless access.FeaturesLook at any wireless router review and you will see new features touted as if they will make you better looking and re-grow hair – if only you just spend that extra 30 ($50)! You tell yourself that feature X or widget Y will really make things easier – but how often is that really the case?As I mentioned earlier you will see many features listed – the key is knowing when to spend and when to say “that gizmo looks really cool but I’ll use it once”
Do you really need a digital photo frame built into your router? The one sitting behind the printer or behind the sofa? Well if like getting a crick in your neck looking at images of little Johhny then maybe…
What about fallback connectivity if your DSL or cable goes down? Would a 3G slot for your USB 3G card help?
Ask yourself what do I really do on a regular basis – for example avid gamers may well benefit from features such as port forwarding to allow online gaming without that annoying delay,
a built in BitTorrent file-sharing client could be a great feature to schedule those video downloads and avoid leaving your laptop on all night
Access control and VPN features could allow your employees to securely work from customer locations, on the move or even allow you upload holiday shots from Orlando back to home when the memory card nears capacity e.g. Billion BiPAC 7402GX.
Newer features such as the ability to connect external storage to your router may well be a great idea if you can’t to keep all your music or those downloaded movies in a central location fro replay from to your PS3 in the living room, laptop in the garden or just in the bath.At the end of the day it’s not feature creep if you value it and use it – just be in control. For more information use wireless router reviews as a search in Google. Final word – “Don’t Panic!”

The Private Companies are Helping Public Bodies Cope With the Boom in Service Sharing

Their findings are quite extraordinary with the respondents revealing a step change in the public sector’s attitudes and intentions towards the sharing of services. The overall conclusion of the survey is that ” a shared services approach will not suit every case. But where it does, those authorities exploiting shared services can reap significant rewards.”The report cites one example of the City of Westminster and Hammersmith & Fulham councils who are planning to save up to £3.1m over three years by merging their education services by the end of this year.As John Tizzard, a director at the Centre for Public Service Partnerships points out in his foreword: “The dominant stimulant to consider and develop shared services undoubtedly is the bleak prospects for public expenditure. The Chancellor has made it clear that the current Coalition Government intends to cut public expenditure over the next four years and few commentators expect significant if any growth in the next spending review period. Faced with these financial pressures, and for some local authorities the level of reduction being imposed is in excess of 40% over the next three to four years, shared services is a seriously attractive option.”The major conclusion arrived at by the poll is that there has been a step change in service sharing plans since the last survey in 2008 and that the future for shared services also looks bright. “Of the 150 senior managers we interviewed 65% say their authority is considering sharing back office functions, or plan to share further back office functions in the next twelve months and a staggering 89% in the next two years.”Of course, all this means that advisors and other key participants in the service sharing process are working flat out to help local authorities ( as well as police forces, Primary Care Trusts etc ) to implement their plans. These include a whole raft of professional firms like Browne Jacobson who specialise in the legal aspects of such arrangements and private contractors who advise on and install networks that can be shared by more than one public sector organisation.Where the lawyers might raise legitimate issues about different user groups being able to view other groups’ traffic, the telecoms specialists will provide appropriate solutions in the form of Virtual Private Networks. In this regard, the technology of choice for the latest shared public sector managed wireless networks is MPLS ( Multi Protocol Label Switching ) which until recently was only practically available to the large telephone operators.

Five Great Wedding Photography Tips!

You’ve dreamed of this day since you were a girl. You’re planning every detail to make it the event you envision. From the beautiful dress and bouquet to the waterfront background. And you want to make sure all of the details, the emotions, the precious moments of your wedding are captured for you to cherish forever. You want to make sure the images remain true to your dreams. To that you rely on the skill and artistry of your wedding photographer.But choosing a wedding photographer can become overwhelming or confusing with this style and that package and endless possibilities for coverage? With that in mind, here are a few things to consider for your wedding photography:1. Style.Traditional, Journalistic, Portrait Journalism, Candid and other words are all used to describe methods of wedding photography coverage. Ask to see the photographer’s portfolio or website and review their images. Are the images all set-piece, posed with everyone looking to the camera? That would indicate the photographer tends toward the traditional coverage. Look for this photographer to be very present and even directive during your day. You have hired them to make fantastic, well-lit, and posed portraits and that means they will have to direct the action to get the images you’re looking for. On the other hand, do the photographs tell a cohesive story? Are most of the images crafted with the people engaged with each other rather than the camera, indicating a pure journalistic approach? A portrait journalist will mix the traditional and journalistic styles to provide a mix of posed and candid shots. I would describe my services in the portrait journalist mode. I work to make a series of images throughout your wedding day to tell the love story that is unfolding. If you want formal posed shots I will make those either before or after the ceremony, as your schedule demands. I will also look for other moments throughout the day to pull you and/or the groom aside for some more artistic shots. For these I tend to place you in a situation, with carefully considered lighting, background and other artistic elements, and just let you be yourselves while I compose and shoot these more dramatic photographs.

2. Format.Today’s brides are well acquainted with the digital world, appreciating the many digital product options for their wedding images. Whether captured on traditional film or digital your photographs are likely to see digital formats at some point in the process or for delivery. Each have their strengths and weaknesses. Your wedding photographer should be able to describe these to you. Digital images are more easily preserved and manipulated for effect and can be shared anywhere at any time. But traditional film images have a classic timeless look and feel that is hard to replicate in digital format. Think about whether you will be showcasing your photos on different digital mediums (wedding website, blog, Facebook, smartphone). I shoot mainly digital, using a variety of lenses and DSLR cameras to achieve the look I am after. I maintain the ability to shoot film if requested, but will usually also shoot some digital images for quick turnaround on sneak peek looks for websites and social media sharing.3. Engagement PhotographyWhat a great way to get to know your photographer! Great engagement photos really show off the couple’s chemistry, and give you loads of ways to share your happy announcement with the world through social media. It gives you a chance to do something fun and lighthearted before your wedding day. Working with your photographer, you can use these images to enhance your love story by illustrating your favorite place, restaurant, beach, or intimate hiding place. You will be the envy of all other engaged couples for having these unique images throughout you engagement period. By having an engagement photo session, you can develop a rapport with your photographer that will carry through to the images of your wedding. I provide and highly recommend an engagement photo session option in my wedding coverage service.4. Experience.How long has the photographer been in photography? How many weddings have they photographed? While not always indicative of quality, experience can often make the difference between timeless images and disappointment. Experience will also significantly impact a photographer’s price point. But while a neuvo wedding photographer might seem riskier, he may go the extra mile to make you happy, and even at a lower price. You may get some truly unique shots if you have, say someone who is an art photographer shoot wedding photos! Regardless of the style or specific processes used, experienced wedding photographers will have the entire process of shooting a wedding well rehearsed from beginning to end.5. Budget.Decide your budget and stick with it. You can find great photography at most price points, if you look thoroughly. Understand your budget and your vision for the images before you begin your search. Understand each photographer’s pricing or package structure and how it fits with providing you what you’re looking for in wedding photographs. Don’t be afraid to make a deal. Make sure you like the deal you get, though! Ask for the amount of books you will receive; the number of prints; how many enlargements; if they can frame prints; and whether they will include a CD of high-resolution shots. Many photographers, including me, are now pricing based upon the artistic coverage and electronic image format either online or DVD. Other options such as printed albums or books, or additional coverage come a la carte and can be priced and planned to fit your total photography budget. Wedding packages like mine can be fully customized to provide you just the coverage and products you really want.

Above all, you should be able to trust your photographer. Trust is key. You can’t build a relationship with your photographer if you don’t get along or trust him. The last thing you want is to feel awkward while getting your picture taken on your wedding day. Just make sure the communication works between you and your photographer. Don’t be afraid to describe to them what you see, what you want. Do that from the first meeting, and then trust that the photographer understands and can deliver on your dream. Then, you can open up your wedding images years from now and remember what a perfect day you created!

The Impact of Wide Area Networks on Business

In this age of information, sending data over long distances is a necessity. Fortunately, technologies have been developed that enable networks and their users to communicate and exchange data quickly and easily — no matter their geographic location. This is what makes long distance networking such a valuable tool. Wide Area Networks (WAN) are broad telecommunication or data communication networks that are geographically distanced from each other. The term WAN actually differentiates Local Area Networks (LAN) from networks spread over a much wider region. Wide Area Networks makes it feasible for companies to have a single integral network, which will connect their various departments and offices. This is made possible by connecting them to network nodes. This requires the application of various strategies and applications.
Companies, farms and organizations often have their offices spread across distances. In these cases, often they face logistical difficulties in communicating with each other. This is where (WAN) step in. As the nomenclature suggests, WAN are networks spread over a wide or relatively large area. WANs are useful in connecting institutions far flung from each other. They are able to provide communications solution even for such organizations, which are situated in two different countries. In most of the cases, WAN are externally connected with bigger networks. Many Internet Service Providers and multinational companies own WANs. A number of establishments, this way are connected together. It can be said that the chief aim of a WAN is to communicate in a speedy, secure and dependable manner.The ownership of WANs may be private as well as rented. Usually, however, the term WAN refers to the inclusion of public networks involving shared users. Such networks often use transmission facilities that are provided by day-to-day carriers like telephone companies. A WAN utilizes many types of devices, which are specific to its environments. These include, WAN switches, access servers, modems, CSU/DSUs, ISDN terminal adapters, routers, ATM switches, multiplexes etc.As WANs are generally maintained by the Public telephone companies of different countries, the internal politics and strategies of these companies influence their development to quite an extent. This way WAN technology marginalizes the distance factor in communication. An example of WAN may be cited in SURFnet, a research network which connects universities and research organizations of the Netherlands with each other.The tremendous growth in the use of PCs and workstations side by side with the development of newer software programs in the 1980s raised demands for networking. But these generally used LANs. As this trend persisted, the need for linking these local networks came up. Then organisations started to rely on using the WAN techniques, using Routers or FRADs. Soon the utility and ability of these networks became comprehensible to network managers, senior management staffa and other users. These became key tools in increasing productivity and be in advantage in competitions.Implementing WAN in business:The very first thing that appears in one’s mind while thinking of networking is generally technology. This is very natural as, for the past two decades we have been provided with opportunities to know about the latest networking techniques after every few years. We have charted our rout from T-1 to frame relay and then to ATM to IP technologies. Each of these steps have led us to less expensive and speedier communications of data. In the process we have been led to believe that faster is better. However, in the economics of the present day, this stress on speed is being questioned. Today’s set-ups are being asked to justify the money they put on new technologies from the business point of view.Since the mid-1990s, there has been an increase in the number of companies, which has extended critical networks to their branch offices situated in remote areas. In recent times there has been widespread acceptance and deployment of technologies like frame relay. These, to a large extent, are encouraging growth. Thus, now organizations have a way to save on their WAN expenditures compared to old digital line networks. At the same time, u9sers now have access to higher levels of service.These techniques, however, also have possess fresh challenges. These range from grasping the details of these newer technologies to implementation of new strategies to keep up the high level of services that is demanded by these organizations. Many of the past problems regarding network management also persist.Most of the network managers have been authorized to use networks spanning enterprises without bringing any extra technical support staff, where simultaneously budget for capital equipment remains relatively flat. Most of these networks present an array of networking equipment from a number of vendors. They, however, need to be efficiently interoperated.There has been a profound impact of internet traffic on enterprise network. As more and more unruly applications like net-surfing and video and audio streamers are jamming valuable bandwidth indiscriminately and often in an unruly way, it is being increasingly difficult for the managers of these networks to deliver the response time that is guaranteed for mission-critical applications. This problem is more pronounced for farms connected by corporate WAN. These offices mostly suffer due to slow links. These problems may be solved if the network managers think of restricting access of users to some applications or network resources. Alternatively, they can try increasing more bandwidth to their network. These problems may also be solved by Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms. A major benefit of using the Wide Area Network is that all the employers of an organization may simultaneously access same databases or files.Talking of bandwidths, a business may increasingly access additional bandwidth by totalling more than one line with slower speed. Thus, these have to avoid jumping to the next higher level of available technology. For example, if you have to jump from a present T1 line requiring additional bandwidth, to a T3 line, going in the process from 1.5 mbps to 45 mbps. This seems to be significantly more bandwidth than required. It also looks like a dramatic increase in cost.A technology in connection to this type of networking may be found in ‘multi-homing’. It is a network using numbers of connections to the Internet simultaneously. This is usually done with the help of multiple ISPs. Multi-homed networks are increasingly gaining in popularity. This is because they provide networks reliability and performance are of a very high level. There is better reliability, as the network remains protected even if a single link or access router fails. Performance is also better since the network’s bandwidth now becomes the sum of the available bandwidths through each access links.A faster and reliable network connection (including that of the Internet) becomes necessary in many scenarios like the following:o Information Dependent Businesses: Many businesses like that of financial institutions, newspapers and e-commerce require Internet connections of a very high order. Any snapping of Net access for such institutions will be too expensive in terms of business loss and customer support. Simultaneously, there is a loss of real time information as well as customer access.o Virtual Private Networks: Companies which use VPNs require Internet connection which is very reliable as well as redundant.o Low Cost, high bandwidth needs: In the urban areas bandwidth is getting cheaper with time. However, in the suburban area smaller towns, high cost and availability remains decisive factors. Bandwidth can be very expensive as we move out from the core of cities. Often, higher bandwidth lines are just not available. Else, there is an incremental increase that is more than needed.Often obtaining timely information, more importantly financial information, becomes a nagging problem. Delays in transmission of information transmission may affect many agencies. Some of these delays are just inconvenient: Owners of property may want information from the office of the assessor but would have to wait till the clerks could find the data. There could be, however, other, more serious delays: A law enforcement department may land in a soup if it takes up around 48 hours to identify a fingerprint due to unavailability of data. WAN may help in such offbeat cases too.WANs are helpful in many ways. Merchants, for example, use WANs to verify the validity of a buyer’s credit card when performing a transaction. Virtual private networks (VPN’s) employ WANs when creating secure connections between users on different private networks. Companies provide traveling employees with access to network resources via private dial-up links.Integrated applications based on networks may have a good impact. Countywide enterprise of resource management system based on WAN may handle financial management due to back-offices, like purchasing and paying of accounts. This way access of current financial data becomes easier. WAN may also be used to fasten the process of identifying fingerprints.
In yet another novel utility, the Geographical Information System, which is also a project based on recent, multidimensional map may be circulated with information layers of information about the certain population. Owners of real assets, who had to call on various government offices for their required information, may now obtain these using the Internet. Outsourcing has been part of the business landscape since the 1980s, as companies look to free up capital to focus on core strategic activities. Outsourcing can be an efficient way to manage necessary, but not core, business activities, like WAN management. Huge capital investments in both equipment and expert staff are required to design and manage private WANs. Outsourcing these tasks promises that networks will be kept technologically up to date and available. But that promise isn’t always kept, and the decision to move from internal WAN design and management to outsourcing can be hard to reverse once you’ve made your move.WAN managers are outsourcing for various reasons, both tactical and strategic. Since outsourcing exploits several economies of scale, a part of those economies are passed from service provider to client, yielding competitive leverage in the areas of Human Capital and Network Availability Leverage. By contrast, tactical motivations such as Web-related WAN services appear to be secondary. The fact that so few enterprises are outsourcing their WAN management, and that so few who are outsourcing are satisfied, suggests that there is significant opportunity for outsource providers who can deliver high-quality services. Both the complexity and importance of business communications will increase. Outsourcing ought to offer competitive leverage and more efficient solutions to the inherent challenges of design and management of increasingly complex and vital WANs.source essaymart.com
