Uses and Upgrades

From Bradley Mitchell, your Guide to Wireless/Networking

This week, the Northeastern United States is dealing with a snowstorm for the history books knocking out power and communications for many. Last week, some U.S Senators got kicked offline due a network breakdown in their neck of the woods. One thing about networking: You can count on outages happening... it's just a matter of where and when.

Introduction to Home Network Backup

Electricity surges in a home, floods, and fire can all irreparably damage disk drivers and other computer equipment that stores our valuable data. The importance of backing up personal data on a home network is too often overlooked until disaster strikes.

Finding and Fixing Internet Connection Problems

Sometimes a person unintentionally breaks their own network links. Here are some ideas on what to do in case your Internet connection suddenly stops working.

Finding and Using Wi-Fi Hotspots

The local library might still have network access even if your home Internet connection goes dark. And, if stranded away from home, wireless hotspots can be a great way to stay connected with friends and family.

What Is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing consists of hardware and software resources made available on the Internet as managed third-party services. .Being "in the cloud" and not tied to any one physical location, these systems are in theory better protected from natural disasters. On the other hand, if data a person might otherwise keep with them locally is sent to the cloud, any network outages become a real nuisance.
