Organize network wire connections at home

Don't you find it too messy your wire connections to your home computer especially that you have a network that also shares the internet connection with other computers for the kids?

Sometimes one may need to reorganize the arrangement of things in a room that moving the home personal computers and the network connections may be a daunting task because wires tend to get in the way ?

I have a laptop at work which I bring to the house sometimes when a deadline is near. Boredom sometimes creeps in on me that I rearrange or revamp the room layout. It is a great pain to reattach the wire connections of the local area network.

A friend suggested that I ungrade my system to a wireless network since it doesn't cost that much now to have one. Prices have come down to acceptable levels. There is no interference with the satellite tv or the cordless phone system at home.

I only need to purchase a wireless router and wireless card connectors or adaptors. If I want more security I may need to read on the manual to secure the wireless network. Everything will be easy according to the technician at the computer shop.

I was able to transfer my wired local network to a wireless local area network with ease by just following the steps and I made sure the components were of the same manufacturer as recommended by mu local ISP provider.

Satellite TV is now portable and cheaper

I am a camper and my dad used to bring the entire family on long road trips to memorable tourists destinations across the country. My sisters and i always say that we will be missing a lot of nice tv shows. Dad was generous enough to subscribe to a satellite tv subscription so that even if we were on a road trip, we can still watch tv on the truck or mobile home as long as we keep our school grades at his acceptable level...

Satellite TV has come a long way from the exclusive domain of the ultra rich people. Recent advancements make the necessary set-ups easy, compact and light. There are many programs to choose from. The best part is being able to program the device to record up to four shows at designated times and channels of your own choosing ... that means you can avoid commercials more and enjoy more activities because you can always watch your favorite shows at your own time and convenience. Come to think of it, mom and dad are always tuning to news and business channels on their own sets.
