  • Save Your Data When Tethering Android Tablet or Phone

    When you absolutely have to have an Internet connection, tethering your laptop to your phone is sometimes your only option. It happened to me the other day after a big thunderstorm knocked out my broadband for a few hours.

    But even with my multi-gigabyte carrier plan, I wasn't thrilled with the idea of having my PC suck down too much of my monthly mobile data allotment. If you find yourself in a similar situation here are a few tips to reduce your data usage while tethering.

    Set as metered
    Windows 8.1 lets you set any Internet connection as metered.

    The first thing you should do in Windows 8.1 is set your tethering connection as metered. This will tell Windows to not download any non-critical updates, Windows Store apps may restrict their data usage  and offline file sync via OneDrive should stop. It essentially slams the brakes on Windows' major background data vampires.

    To go metered, click on the network icon in the bottom right hand side of the taskbar. A charms bar will pop out with a list of all your connections. Right-click the tethering connection and select Set as metered connection.

    You can also tweak a few other things to take advantage of the metered setting. Open the Settings app in the Modern UI by tapping the Windows logo key + "C". Then go to Settings > Change PC settings > OneDrive > Metered connections.

    For maximum bandwidth savings, you'll want to make sure all of the options there are set to Off.

    Next, back to the main menu in the Settings app and select PC and devices > Devices. Scroll down and make sure Download over metered connections is set to Off. Then go to Search and apps > Search and make sure everything under Metered connections is also turned off, unless you want search suggestions from Bing while searching your PC over a tethered connection.
    Choose your browser

    There are two browsers you can choose to reduce your data usage while tethering: Chrome and Opera.

    Google's browser can save bandwidth by not downloading images on web pages and setting all plugins as click-to-run only (a feature you may want to enable at all times for a less noisy, more secure Internet anyway). Opera has a free feature called Turbo that automatically compresses data via Opera's servers before it gets sent to your PC to reduce bandwidth usage.

    Here's how to use the features.

     

    Chrome

    These instructions both start by clicking the Chrome "hamburger" menu icon in the upper right corner and selecting Settings.

    Disable images: navigate to and select Show advanced settings > Privacy > Content settings... > Images > Do not show any images

    Click-to-run plugins: navigate to and select Show advanced settings > Privacy > Content settings... > Plug-ins > Click to play
    Opera

    To turn on Turbo in Opera, click the main menu button in the upper left corner and select Opera Turbo from the drop down menu.
    Disable your cloud

    Finally, let's disable any cloud services you may be using such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

  • What Is The Difference Between LAN, WAN, MAN, CAN, VPN, BAN, NAN, SAN?

    1.What is a Local Area Network (LAN)?

    LAN is a form of a computer network most known to the general public. It has a limited reach, roughly a bunch of closely situated houses or building. And that’s because we typically use the Ethernet technology (IEEE 802.3) to power our local area networks.

    2.Home Area Network (HAN)

    A kind of local area network is the HAN (Home Area Network). All the devices like smartphones, computers, IoT devices, televisions, gaming consoles, etc. connect to a central router (wired or wireless) placed in a home constitute a home area network.

    3.What is a Wireless LAN (WLAN)?

    This type of computer network is a wireless counterpart of the local area network. It uses the WiFi technology defined as per the IEEE 802.11 standards. I

    4.What is a Personal Area Network (PAN)?

    As the name suggests, a personal area network is intended for personal use within a range of a few ten meters. Mainly, the technologies used for creating personal area networks are wireless.

    5.What is a Campus Area Network (CAN)?

    A network infrastructure covering the school, university, or a corporate premises can be dubbed as campus area network. It can comprise of several LANs, a central firewall, and connected to the internet using a leased line or any other means.

    6.What is a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)?

    The area covered by a MAN is quite larger in comparison to a LAN and CAN. In fact, a MAN can be used to link several LANs spread across a city or a metro area.

    7.What is a Wide Area Network (WAN)?

    We can think of a WAN as the superset of all the small networks we find in our homes, offices, cities, states, and countries. The router or modem placed at your home is a device used to connect to the WAN. The internet is also a type WAN that spans across the entire earth.

    8.What is a Storage Area Network (SAN)? 

    Generally, it is used to connect external storage devices to servers but make them believe that the storage is attached directly. The technology used to accomplish this is known as Fiber Channel.

  • This android app turn your Android Phone into a Full functional computer like Windows and Linux

    Andromium OS turns your android device into a full functional computer by attaching your device to TV/Monitor and Keyboard and Mouse.

    Download Andromium OS app from Google Play Store

    The folk behind the concept claim that it will turn your Android device into a “full functional computer” with the help of an attached keyboard, mouse and, obviously, a screen – something which can easily be achieved using the screencast functionality and a Chromecast.

    Once you’ve got the peripherals paired and a screen sorted out you can reboot your phone, fire up the app and get down to business.

    Recommended device specification:
    Snapdragon 800 or better processor
    2GB RAM
    1080p external monitor/TV

    Required:
    Lollipop 5.0
    Or
    Chromecast/Miracast or Adapter/Dock that allow external TV/Monitor attachment
    Mouse/Keyboard (USB or Bluetooth)

    You’ll be able to play games, do work and use the setup much like you would a Windows PC, from double clicking on shortcuts to launch apps to dragging and resizing windows, and all the while your phone will still function as normal, so texts and calls will come through and you won’t miss a thing.
