How to make rj45 cable connector

How to make rj45 cable connector
Modern homes need cat 5 cable (a.k.a. ethernet cable, network cable  RJ45) running all over the place. Home networks, security cameras, telephones and even HDMI devices---among other products---can use cat 5 to transmit their data. (In my file-transfer tests, wired ethernet over cat 5 is still about 20 times faster than a wireless network.)

When my house was built in 1913, the builders didn't have the foresight to run cat 5 everywhere. So, last night, I had to run some more, and I realized that even a lot of tech-friendly people don't know how easy it is to make your own cat 5 cables. If you're going to run a lot of cat 5, making your own is about a tenth of the cost of buying pre-crimped cables. And, it only takes a minute or two for each cable.
This article shows you how to get the few pieces of equipment you'll need, and breaks it down into a simple three-step process.

How to install Android apps on your BlackBerry till it opens up to Amazon store



How to install Android apps on your BlackBerry till it opens up to Amazon store

How to install Android apps on your BlackBerry till it opens up to Amazon store


Despite the robustness of its devices and sophistication of its operating system, a lot of users have been staying away from BlackBerry phones. They have one big grouse: the platform does not give access to most of the apps that people like to have on their smartphones these days like Instagram, Zite and the Chrome browser.

But with its new OS upgrade BlackBerry OS 10.2.1, the Canadian smartphone company has opened up its OS to Android apps. No users still can’t go to Google Play and download apps, but a lot of third party apps stores work quite well on the new breed of BlackBerry devices. In fact, BlackBerry has just announced that the next version of its OS will have native access to the Amazon App store. The OS 10.3 version is expected to be available towards the end of the year.
We have written about the new features on BlackBerry 10.2.1.  So this time we decided to check out how easy it is to install and run Android apps on a BlackBerry Z30.
There are many options to side-load Android apps on a BlackBerry. Here we look at three and tell you what works best.

OPTION 1: The easiest way is to mail yourself an APK, which can then be downloaded and installed. However, this method strangely had a poor success rate. Worked for me with only one of the five apps I tried.

OPTION 2: Snap, is an app that brings Google Play to a BlackBerry and should hence be the easiest, at least on paper. But we could not get to load the app despite our best attempts.

               How to install Android apps on your BlackBerry till it opens up to Amazon store 
OPTION 3: We then tried a third party app store called APK Train on the browser. This was the closest one could get to Google Play on the BlackBerry. The app store is clean and easy to use. It has a top apps section as well as a search option. Within minutes I had all the apps I had running on my Android device on the Z30.

The apps downloaded and installed within seconds. Of the dozen-odd apps that I downloaded, I could not get the Google Chrome browser to load. It kept crashing, as if reminding us that it was not made for this platform.

OTHER OPTIONS: You can check out other third party app stores like Amazon to see if it works for you. If it does not, there is always option 3 to fall back on. The good thing here is that there is at least one option that works seamlessly.

PROBLEMS: As these apps are not made for a device that lacks a back and home button, navigation can be a problem. We faced issues with the Zite app as it was quite tough to go one

How Do I Change My Email Notifications?


How Do I Change My Email Notifications?

 
How Do I Change My Email Notifications?

How Do I Change My Email Notifications?



The following is part of our series, Facebook Tips, which answers some of the most commonly asked questions about using Facebook. While we hope the tips we share on the blog will be informative, remember that we are unable to answer individual questions here. We'll always direct you to the Help Center for additional information about the topics we cover.


You don't have to be logged in to Facebook to get the latest updates from friends. Email notifications allow you to know when people interact with you on the site, whether through Wall posts, comments, tagged photos or friend requests. Similar to the notifications you see in the lower right hand corner on Facebook, email notifications let you know what's happening even when you aren't logged in.

You can manage email notifications by selecting the "Settings" link in the upper right hand corner of any page. From the Notifications tab, you can choose which actions you want to generate emails. For example, if you want to be notified by email each time someone writes on your Wall or receive weekly email digests about your friends' upcoming birthdays, just check the boxes next to these options. If you'd rather not be notified when people poke you or comment on your photos, just leave those boxes unchecked.

To change the email address associated with your account, select the "Settings" tab. You'll then see your current email address and can select "change" to add or delete addresses. Your Facebook email notifications will only be sent to the address you designate as your "Contact Email," so also be sure this information is accurate.

How to write good advertising content?


How to write good advertising content

To write successful advertisement content is to catch the attention of the customer at first sight as they flicker though the brochures and fliers like they flip through a magazine and not how they will read books with concentration. It need not be necessary that the customer reads each and every line of the advertisement; hence, each line should be effective and should pass out a message. So it’s not only necessary to write logical matter, but it should also be creative enough.  

Firstly, only relevant and specific matter should be written in the ad. Some content writers fear missing out information and write as much as they can. This will only disinterest the customers more and space will be wasted. The writing style should be related to the type of flier or brochure that is to be written. Its usual for the reader to read skipping lines in between and there is a possibility that they will read it from bottom to top. It always helps to use words that sell. But still, the content should be properly organized with the heading at the top, body in the middle and conclusion at the end. The main points can be written as sub-headings, in bold font. The body following the sub-heading should discuss the sub-heading and if it is related to any other sub-heading, even those points should be discussed. If the product is to be discussed from the technical point, it should not be so technical that it sounds like a foreign language to a common man.

Chucking is another technique that can be used. Chucking is writing small stories with conclusion at the end. They can either have or not have connection between themselves. Its better if they aren’t connected, because it won’t require the reader to go back to a previous chunk in order to understand the present chunk he is reading. This works quite well when there are pictures in the advertisement and the chunk illustrates the picture. The two-dimensional picture is speechless unless some well-chosen words talks about it and motivates the customers. Obviously, while chucking, sub-headings can be used to let out critical information. Another point to be considered is the product or company about which the content is based on. Suppose if the brochure is related to a corporate, the style of writing should be formal. 

Spelling mistakes should be avoided to the maximum extent. They reflect poor quality and bring bad reputation to the client. The design should speak clearly and loudly about the organization being discussed. Unclear, cluttered and illogical information creates an illusion that the company also has the same characteristics. Catalogues are the only source of advertisement for some businesses, because of low investments. Such kind of business catalogues won't require much writing, just product description will do. Instead one can work on the font sizes, colors, etc.

The next step should be writing information about contacts so as to buy the product; detailed forms are big turn-off. Contact information, postal address and website URL should be clearly specified. Also include whether the business accepts cash, check or credit card. Another thing to be taken care of is the contact information, which is usually written on the forms, which have to be mailed. It is better to write them on the advertisement also so that the customers can save it for future reference.

After the final content is written, it’s the time for organizing it. Depending on the demand of the products, arrange them in hierarchy, especially when designing a catalogue because each of the products should get the consideration and attention they deserve. 

It is a good habit to write down procedures, which have been applied to every kind of advertisements written. And also save the information like what customers were targeted with what kind of advertisements, to use to the same kind of logic the next time to similar customers. This helps to create a blueprint for a future job.

How to recover Gmail Account

 instructions for the recovery of a lost Gmail account

how to recover Gmail Account


This section will document the step-by-step process of doing a recovery for several of the most common cases. This will give one some idea of what to expect going through the process. But note that as Google makes changes to the process or the individual pages the images below may become out-of-date. It's a guide to the general process, not definitive documentation. Still, it should help guide one through the process.

All account access starts the same way, by going to the Gmail sign in page at: https://mail.google.com/. If you're trying to recover access to an account, you click the "Can't access your account?" link at the bottom.  Note that the link may also simple be "Help".

how to recover Gmail Account
This starts the recovery process with the initial choices where you select the type of problem you are having.
how to recover Gmail Account
The choice you make starts you down one of several branches towards account recovery.

Another way to do the same basic task is to use this help article where you can select the particular account access problem you are having.  But note that several of the choices end up at the same location as the above "Can't access your account?" link. https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=46346


  • I don't know my password

    If you have forgotten your password this is the path you will use. One example of how this could happen is if a browser is configured to automatically fill in the login details and for some reason the information is lost. This path may not work for a compromised account as hackers will often change the recovery details to try and prevent the original owner from regaining access to the account.  Enter your account name and click Continue

    how to recover Gmail Account

    Depending on what recovery options were configured for the account, several options may appear. Select the one you wish to use and click Continue.

    how to recover Gmail Account

    Be aware that many of the paths below will require solving a Captcha verification before proceeding. It doesn't mean anything is wrong, so just enter the letters and click Continue.

    how to recover Gmail Account



    • Get a verification code on my phone

      The option most preferred by Google is for them to send you a verification code to a pre-configured mobile device. When this option is selected a choice of receiving the code by SMS message or voice is given. Make the selection and click Continue.


      Do not leave the recovery process until you receive the code. The code will be received on the configured mobile device and should be entered on the next screen that will be presented.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      Once the code is entered, the next screen will allow the creation of a new password for the account.
      how to recover Gmail Account



    • Confirm access to my recovery email

      This option is perhaps the simplest as it just sends an e-mail to a pre-configured recovery e-mail address allowing one to reset the account password. Select the option and click Continue.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      There will be a notification that a password reset was sent to your pre-configured recovery e-mail address.

      how to recover Gmail Account
      When received, the e-mail will look similar to this.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      Click the enclosed link and follow the instructions to create a new password.



    • Answer my security question

      Another choice may be to answer a pre-configured secret (security) question. This is a legacy recovery method as new accounts no longer provide this option. Note that this option will only appear if you have not attempted to sign in the account within the last 24 hours. If you wish to use this recovery option (perhaps because it is the only one you have set up) you will need to back off and leave the account alone for at least that period of time to have this option offered to you.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      If answered correctly the next screen will allow the creation of a new password for the account.
      how to recover Gmail Account



    • Verify your identity - The Account Recovery Form

      It's possible that none of the above options will work. Perhaps the settings were changed by a hacker who compromised the account. Perhaps they were never configured, or the information has gone out-of-date (the recovery address no longer exists or you have changed your mobile number). In this case, the final option is the Account Recovery Form which is accessed by the link at the bottom: "Verify your identity".

      Details of this process appear below.
      how to recover Gmail Account

      This will lead to a series of screens that ask a number of details about the account which if answered correctly will prove ownership and allow the password to be reset. The first two screen look similar to the following.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      how to recover Gmail Account

      Once the form as been submitted there will be a confirmation screen.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      There are three possible results.

      1. Success - a link will be provided to reset the password
        Congratulations...
      2. Failure - insufficient information has been provided to prove ownership. The only option is to keep trying.
        At Google, we take your privacy and security seriously. We're committed to returning accounts only when we're sure we're giving them back to the accounts' owners. Unfortunately, based on the information you provided, we were unable to verify that you own this account. To ensure that we are not compromising the security of the data, we can't return the account at this time.
      3. Additional help offer - an offer for prioritized (paid) support will be presented.  Note:  if this option is still available, it is very rarely offered.  It's optional so you may ignore it and continue to use the other provided options. There may be more than one form of response e-mail, but one form is as follows:
        We received your request to recover your Google Account xxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com, and we’d like to evaluate your account more closely. To continue the account recovery process, please visit: [long URL link]

        You will need to be signed out of all Google/GMail accounts to use the link. Following that link will lead to a long page that starts like this:

        how to recover Gmail Account
        [page continues...]


        As it states, this path is totally optional, if you don't wish to use it simply follow the link to re-submit, or return to the start of the recovery process to try a different path.



  • I don't know my username

    This is the selection to use if you have forgotten the username for the account. This can also sometimes happen if a browser or mobile device is configured to automatically sign in every time, or for an account that is rarely used. But this will only work if a recovery e-mail address was previously configured for the account.
    how to recover Gmail Account

    • Forgot your username

      You need to know the recovery address you used for this account, and that address should be entered at this point. There will also be a Captcha to solve before submitting the request.
      how to recover Gmail Account

      If the information is correctly entered above, the next screen will confirm that an e-mail was sent to the recovery address with a list of all Google usernames associated with that e-mail.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      When received, the e-mail will look something like this, and may contain a list of multiple e-mail addresses. Once you know the username, you may have to return to the start of the recovery flow to recover the password if that was also forgotten.

      how to recover Gmail Account

  • I'm having other problems signing in

    This is a catch-all for any problem not covered by the above choices (although it includes the above also). Enter the e-mail address and click Continue.

    how to recover Gmail Account

    You will be directed to the following help page which presents a list of options each of which expands into more options and directs you to a specific solution. A few of the options (I forgot my password, or I forgot my username) will direct you back to the above page for recovery.

    http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=2402620&page=ts.cs

    how to recover Gmail Account



  • Special situations

    There are a couple special cases that deviate from the above recovery flow.  So if these cases apply, be aware that it will change what is seen during process.

    • Two-step verification

      Accounts that have two-step verification enabled will require a verification code at some point during the recovery process. If an access code can not be obtained for any reason, one of the alternate options must be selected, which will probably require the use of the Account Recovery Form to regain access.

      The final option ("I didn't enable 2-step verification") can happen if an account is compromised and the hacker enables two-step verification in an attempt to lock-out the rightful owner. Selecting that option will lead to the Account Recovery Form to recover from this case.

      how to recover Gmail Account

      If the first option above is selected and Continue is clicked, a code will be received on the designated mobile device which is entered on the next screen.

      how to recover Gmail Account

    • Google Apps accounts

      Google Apps accounts (those not ending in @gmail.com) can not be recovered using the standard Gmail recovery procedures. One must contact the Google Apps administrator who can reset the password to regain access.

      how to recover Gmail Account


Additional Recovery Information

Doing a password reset is the easiest way to regain access to an account. But it can fail if you forgot your secret question, if the recover e-mail address is no longer valid, or it the account was compromised and that information changed.

The Account Recovery Form is the alternative method. It is important that you complete as much of the form as possible, and that the information be as accurate as you can make it. If the form is rejected you can try submitting it again. You can re-submit it as many times as you want, but always wait for a reply to each submission before submitting again. If you don’t receive a reply, check your spam/junk folder (especially if it’s a non-Gmail account).

It’s very important that as you repeatedly submit the Account Recovery Form that you fill in more of the blanks with more accurate information. There is some threshold of correct information you need to prove ownership, so a rejection means you need to supply more. Submitting the same form with no additional information multiple times does not help.

While this system works for many people, there are some cases where it can be very frustrating. But don’t give up. There’s nothing you can do (like deleting the account) until you re-gain access to it and since Google does not offer live one on one support for the free Gmail product directly these are your options.

Also realize that the more complicated account recover process (that very few people need to use) is one of the trade-offs for not being forced to provide a lot of personal information when you create the account (that everyone has to do). Many people prefer this for privacy reasons.

Hints for successful account recovery
  • It’s not about the number of times you submit the Account Recovery Form, it’s about providing more and better answers with each attempt. If your submission is rejected, you must work harder to provide more answers, and make the answers more accurate in subsequent submissions.
  • Wait for a response before each new submission (be sure to check Spam). Responses could be delayed as much as 24 hours but you should wait a full 48 hours before submitting another form.
  • If you are not receiving a response, check your Spam or Junk folder on the account you specified for replies. Also double (triple) check that you correctly spelled the e-mail account name.
  • Duplicate submissions, or submissions without waiting for a reply can trigger a submission lock forcing you to wait a few days to try again.
  • Make your best guess on every field of the form. You never know what will help.
There may be one other option for simple password recovery if your account wasn’t compromised and you simply forgot your password. If you have your browser setup to remember your account information you may be able to view your saved password. In Firefox, you can use: Tools->Options, Security, Saved Password, Show Passwords. If you use another browser, then (install and) open Firefox, use File->Import to import your settings and then check to see if the saved password is accessible. Again, this only works for people who forgot their password due to relying on the browser’s auto-fill function, but if it applies it might be an easier than the above procedures.

How to edit pdf file

 Tip: PDF files are for viewing not editing, if you have the original file use it instead of following any of the below suggestions.


how to edit pdf file

The PDF file format was originally created by Adobe in the early ’90s and there are now over 700+ million PDF documents on the Internet according to Google (search for filetype:pdf).


There are several reasons why the PDF file format is so popular for exchanging all sorts of documents including presentations, CAD Drawings, invoices and even legal forms.
  • PDF files are generally more compact (smaller in size) than the source document and they preserve the original formatting.
  • Unlike Word and other popular document formats, the content of a PDF file cannot be modified easily. You can also prevent other users from printing or copying text from PDF documents.
  • You can open a PDF file on any computer or mobile device with free software like Adobe Acrobat Reader. Google Chrome can read PDFs without requiring plugins and it can create PDFs.

Edit PDF Files using Free Alternatives to Adobe Acrobat

While PDF Files are “read only” by default, there are ways by which you can edit certain elements* of a PDF document for free without requiring the source files or any of the commercial PDF editing tools like Adobe Acrobat.
We will primarily focus on tools that let you alter the actual contents of a PDF file>. If you are looking to manipulate the PDF file structure itself like rearranging pages or merging multiple PDFs into one, please refer to this detailed Adobe PDF Guide.

An Online PDF Editor for Basic Tasks

Sometimes you need to make minor changes to a PDF file. For instance, you may want to hide your personal phone number from a PDF file before uploading it online or may want to annotate a page with notes and freehand drawings.
You can perform such edits in a PDF easily with PDFEscape.com, an online PDF editor that is free and also lets you edit password-protected PDF documents in the browser.
With PDF Escape, you can hide* parts of a PDF file using the whiteout tool or add annotations with the help of custom shapes, arrows, text boxes and sticky notes. You can add hyperlinks to other PDF pages / web documents.
[*] Hiding is different from redaction because here we aren’t changing the associated metadata of a PDF file but just hiding certain visible parts of a PDF file by pasting an opaque rectangle over that region so that the stuff beneath the rectangle stays invisible.

Change Metadata of PDF Files

If you would like to edit the meta-data associated* with a PDF document, check out Becy PDFMetaEdit. This is a free utility that can help you edit properties of a PDF document including the title, author name, creation data, keywords, etc.
The tool can also be used for removing PDF passwords as well as for encrypting PDF documents such that only users who know the password can read the contents of your PDF files. And since this PDF metadata plus bookmarks editor can be executed from the command line, you can use it to update information in multiple PDF files in a batch.
[*] If you planning to post your PDF files on the web, you should consider adding proper metadata to all the files as that will help improve the organic rankings of your PDF files in Google search results.

Edit the Text of a PDF File

If you want to edit the text in a PDF file but don’t have access to the source documents, your best bet is that you convert the PDF file into an editable Word document or an Excel spreadsheet depending on the contents of the PDF.
Then edit these converted PDFs in Microsoft Office (or Google Docs) and export the modified files back into PDF format using any PDF writer.
If your PDF document is mostly text, you may use the desktop version of Stanza to convert that PDF into a Word document. If the document includes images, charts, tables and other complex formatting, try the online PDF to Word converter from BCL Research or the one from NitroPDF – the former offers instant conversion while the latter service can take up to a day though its yields more accurate results.

Advanced PDF Editing (Images, text, etc.)

Now that you know the basic PDF editing tools, let’s look at another set of PDF editors that are also free but can help you do some more advanced editing like replacing images on a PDF file, adding signatures, removing blocks of text without breaking the flow of the document, etc.
First there’s PDF XChange, a free PDF viewer and editor that you also may use for typing text directly on any PDF page. PDF XChange also supports image stamps so you may use the tool for signing PDF files or for inserting images anywhere on a PDF page.
Then you have Inkscape, a free vector drawing tool (like Adobe Illustrator) that can natively import and export PDF content.

How to Install Android on Ubuntu


How to Install Android on Ubuntu Linux With Eclipse Ide


This document will prepare an overview of the steps you will take to install and configure Android on your Ubuntu Linux system. You must have Oracle Java JDK or OpenJDK on your system before installing Android SDK. OpenJDK (aka Open Java Development Kit) is a free and open source implementation of the Java programming language Moreover, you will learn how to:
  1. Prepare your development environment and ensure it meets the system requirements.
  2. Install the Android Software Development Kit (SDK)s
  3. Download and Configure the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  4. Install the Android Development Tool (ADT) Plugin for Eclipse IDE
  5. Add Android platforms and other components to your SDK
  6. Create your Android Virtual Device (AVD)

Method 1 : Prepare your Development Environment

  1. 1
    Prepare your Ubuntu Linux development environment and ensure it meets the system requirements. First, boot up Ubuntu Linux,make sure you have an implementation of the Java JDK installed on your system, whether it is OpenJDK or Oracle Java JDK, which lays the foundation for the Android SDK. If you don't have the Java JDK installed on your system please install it, you can obtain the Oracle Java JDK from Download the Oracle Java JDK,for more information on: 
    • How to Install Oracle Java on Ubuntu Linux or to install the OpenJDK and OpenJRE open up a terminal on your system and run the following commands
    • Type/Copy/Paste: sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
      • This command installs OpenJDK on your system
    • Type/Copy/Paste: sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre
      • this command installs OpenJDK JRE( Java Runtime Environment ) on your system

How to Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection

 

How to Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection

 How to speed up your Internet connection without use of web accelerators, and is geared towards Windows and Internet Explorer.

Steps

  1. Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection Step 2.jpg
    1
    Check to see if faster internet connections are in your area. Fiber optic and cable internet tend to be faster than DSL and Dial-Up. ]], a scan disk, a virus scan, a malware scan, and clear your recycle bin. An unusually slow Internet connection experience is often the only sign that your computer is infected with viruses or other malware. Delete old files and temporary files. Never allow the free space on your C: drive to be less than 10% of the total size or twice the installed RAM (which ever is larger). A well maintained PC will operate much better than a PC that has never had any maintenance. Google or your local computer repair store should be able to help you with this if you don't know how or you can use any good system cleaner and PC optimizer tool for free such as [ Registry Cleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner] or purchase something.
    Ad
  2. Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection Step 3.jpg
    2
    Reset Your Home Network. Sometimes restarting (or unplugging and replugging the electric power on) your home network or your router -- if you have one -- will drastically increase the speed of your connection.
  3. Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection Step 4.jpg
    3
    Check your home network equipment in general. If you have multiple computers sharing a connection, make sure all the computers are physically connected to a router or switch, and not just to a hub. Hubs are "dumb", low-level equipment, while routers are capable of prioritizing and directing traffic effectively.
  4. Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection Step 5.jpg
    4
    Optimize your cache or temporary Internet files. These files improve your Internet connection performance by not downloading the same file over and over. When a web site puts their logo graphic on every page your computer only downloads a new one when it changes.
    • Caution: If you delete the temporary files (graphics and such), they must be downloaded again when you go to that site. If you disable the cache (loaded software, data), then it must be downloaded every time you view the page that uses it. This can be fixed by opening Internet Explorer, clicking on "Tools" at the top and choosing "Internet Options". On the General tab, click the "Settings" button next to Temporary Internet Files. Set a check mark for newer versions to handle downloading new versions "Automatically". Set the amount of disk space to use to 2% of your total harddisk size or 512 MB, which ever is smaller. On Firefox, click "Tools" then "Options," and go to the privacy tab. Then click on the Cache tab within this to set it to automatic.
  5. Maximize the Speed of Your Internet Connection Step 6.jpg
    5
    If you are using a Wireless router, make sure it doesn't conflict with a cordless phone or wireless camera. Wireless routers come in three varieties; 802.11 b, g, and n (2.4Ghz) or 802.11 a (5.8Ghz) If you are using a 2.4Ghz Cordless phone and 2.4Ghz Wireless router then your Internet connection speed will slow while you use the cordless phone. The same is true of wireless security cameras. Check on your phone and camera, if it's 900Mhz then it's fine. If it says 2.4Ghz or 5.8Ghz then it could be the cause of your slow connection speed while they're in use.

    Call your Internet service provider (ISP). Sometimes you just have bad service. They can usually tell if your connection is substandard without having a technician come to your home. Just be nice and ask.

    Upgrade your computer. If your computer is slow, it doesn't matter how fast your Internet connection is, the whole thing will just seem slow. You can only access the Internet as fast as your PC will allow you to.

    Upgrade your router/firewall equipment. Specifically, look into any speed specifications (many older routers are not capable of transmitting to/from the internet faster than 10 Mbps, even though the local ports transmit in 100 Mbps). Also, older routers may be underpowered, so that even though the theoretical speed is 10 Mbps, the processor on the router is too weak to reach maximum speed.

    Upgrade your router firmware. Check the manufacturer's web site for firmware downloads for your router. Compare this with your version, and upgrade if necessary. Most routers have web interfaces for managing this, check for any labels on your router specifying default address, username and password.

    Replace your old cable modem. Any solid-state electronics will degrade over time due to accumulated heat damage. Your broadband modem will have a harder and harder time 'concentrating' on maintaining a good connection as it gets older (signal to noise ratios will go down, and the number of resend requests for the same packet will go up). An after-market cable modem as opposed to a cable-company modem will frequently offer a better connection.

    Often your connection speed is slow because other programs are using it. To test if other programs, such as anti-virus and other updates, are accessing the Internet without your knowing, Click Start, Click Run. Type "cmd" (without quotes). Type "netstat -b 5 > activity.txt". After a minute or so, hold down Ctrl and press C. This has created a file with a list of all programs using your Internet connection. Type activity.txt to open the file and view the program list.

    Try pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete simultaneously and open up the Task Manager. Go to the process menu and close those processes that may be stealing your valuable bandwidth. (NOTE: Closing processes with unknown filenames may cause known programs to not function properly). There is a column with the User Name, and if that is "System", you'd better leave it alone until you stop using the program that needs it. But if the User is your own login name, then it is not crucial to the operating system, but may be needed by other programs, however you may experiment. Often the system will not allow closing of -- or will reopen -- needed system programs.

    After you have tried some of this try your connection again and see if it's running any faster. If it is better you may need to close those extras each time you restart your system until you set the startup list to not open them anymore.

    Check to see somebody else is using the internet on your home network. If somebody is downloading a lot of media from the internet, such as watching video or downloading large files, the host computer is using a lot of bandwidth and the other computers are using the remaining bandwidth.

    If you are using satelite internet, your internet connection might be altered because of wind (vibrations) and electrical activity in/among clouds, heavy snow, or rain and lightning, static, or other electrical interference.

    Review the list of previous versions of the folder or files within this folder/drive. Determine the most recent previous version of the picture files, or the folder containing them, that you want to restore and double-click on it.
  4. 4
    Move the deleted picture files or folder containing them to a new location on your computer, by clicking and dragging them to that location in the access menu on the left side of the "Computer" window. Ideal locations for the new save might be a new folder, the desktop or an external hard drive.
