LinkedIn can be very exciting and fun to fill out, so make sure you take an effort to attempt it. Some people recommend placing your profile picture first, but if you do not have a good one, I would consider filling out some of the basic information first. It’s a great way to get to know yourself and others. You can network with friends and experts, find great ways to land that career you are looking for, or even get great material to expand on your IT knowledge. Remember to have fun with it, be professional, and remember that you can always come back to it and edit things. If you are unsure what to write, consider skipping a section and work on the ones that you are confident filling out. For starter, making a headline is simple as it may only include a few words. I used to try to make this sound fancy, but I’ve learned that mastering the basics is key in IT. This also shows honesty which is important. Writing something like computer expert, or network engineer when you don’t have years of experience or are new to the field will not help much with landing the job you need or are qualified to get started. I currently use my exact job title at my job, since the company is well-known, I also use the company name in my headline. Another one I like is “Computer Support Specialist,” which is the most common term I have heard used in school. This will get you with the pack of candidates that are marketing themselves to recruiters...

Wireless networks are setup based on the administrator or end user’s goals, which includes:  speed, range, and security.  Deploying secure wireless networking is an ongoing practice.  Employing encryption to protect wireless network is one of the best manner to protect your wireless network from attacks and interceptions.  Encryption is the process of preventing unauthorize access by changing information or data into a code.  Wireless network users have an option of choosing between three common forms of secure encryption.  These options are: WEP, WPA. And WPA2.  Details regarding these protocols can be accessed through Wireless Encryption Basics.  Passwords are simply one level of security.  Encryption and selecting the right wireless broadband router are also essential when setting up your wireless network.  Another facet of setup of routers that should be considered is location.  Placement of the wireless router near a window means that your wireless signal range reach too far outside the house where it can be easily interception by cybercriminals.  Place your router in the middle of you house so all rooms have the same internet access.  When you leave on vacation, make sure to disable your wireless network, prevent an opportunity for malicious hackers to attempt to gain unauthorized access to your network. Here are great points about securing your wireless network: New technology on routers has wi-fi protected setup which has a WPS button to lock the device during setup. As with any software, check the manufacturer’s website for updates to your firmware. Disable SSID in your wireless setting which will prevent your device showing up is a list of nearby network.

How to setup and configure wireless network in secure manner?

Whether it be for home or business, a secure network connection is very important to protect the information stored on your computer or while using the internet. If you want to set up a secure network you must first determine the type of connection you want- either wireless only or the option to cable (Ethernet). Once you have established the type of connection you want for your home or business you can now protect your network. To protect your network you can begin by changing the SSID of your router. It’s recommended to use a SSID that is not recognizable or can be identified by your business or home name to avoid the attention of hackers or even neighbors that may try to use your connection. Once you have chosen an unidentifiable user name you can disable the routers SSID Broadcast setting to prevent hackers from detecting your wireless network. The next step in securing your wireless network is to set up encryption. A 128-bit encryption is more secure but the process will depend on the software installed on your router.  Using a WPA is most effective, WEP have been known to be insecure. Unfortunately, older computers may not support WPA and you will need to WEP by default. If you are able to use WPA you should set your password as a long alphanumeric combination with more than 10 characters that will be hard to guess by neighbors or hackers. If you have a firewall, which most antivirus software includes.  Another way to set up and configure a secure wireless network is to disable wireless administrating. This disables...

Advantages of Wired Workplace Vs. Wireless

The main advantage of a wireless network over a wired one is that users can move around freely within the area of the network with their laptops, handheld devices etc and get an internet connection. Users are also able to share files and other resources with other devices that are connected to the network without having to be cabled to a port. Not having to lay lots of cables and put them through walls etc. can be a considerable advantage in terms of time and expense. It also makes it easier to add extra devices to the network, as no new cabling is needed. If you are a business such as a café, having a wireless network that is accessible to customers can bring you extra business. Customers generally love wireless networks because they are convenient. Wireless networks can sometimes handle a larger amount of users because they are not limited by a specific number of connection ports. Instant transfer of information to social media is made much easier. For instance, taking a photograph and uploading it to Facebook can generally be done much quicker with wireless technology.   The benefits of a wireless network is the lack of physical wires. A wireless network is easy to use and accommodates changes in a network without cords and cables. If you are adding new desks and employees, a wireless network is the easiest logistical choice. With the total proliferation of mobile devices in our lives (a wireless network is easier for employees to connect their personal devices to the network. An easily accessible network is paramount when considering the happiness of an...
