Today is your luck dear my dear friend. I have decided to share a few tricks I know in Windows XP. Are you ready for an adventure? Ok follow me!!
1. Total Uptime
This shows how long XP has been up. Go to the Command Prompt (Start -> Run ->cmd -> type systeminfo ) then type 'systeminfo'. The computer will produce a lot of useful info, including the uptime. If you want to keep these, type 'systeminfo > info.txt into the command prompt. This creates a file called info.txt which is saved in local disk C:/ in Notepad.
2. Lock XP
You can lock your XP workstation with two clicks of the mouse. Create a new shortcut on your desktop using a right-click button on the mouse, and enter 'rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation' in the location field. Give the shortcut a name you like "lockme or shutup or anything to help you remember". That's it -- just double click on it and your computer will be locked. And if that's not easy enough, Windows key + L will do the same.
3. SAFE MODE
Sometimes when troubleshooting a Windows XP problem, you need to enter Safe Mode. Typically, you would press the F8 key during the boot process to enter Windows XP Safe Mode but that can be very difficult in some cases depending on the problem you're having.
This simple tip will get you into the Windows XP Safe Mode a whole lot easier using the System Configuration Utility, sometimes called "msconfig".
4. System Administration
Most cases when your windows operating system is too slow to access the control panel or you have been hit by a virus that keeps you from doing any administrative tasks or you just want a shortcut to perform a system core task at hand. Windows has a system configuration utility that allows editing of your system in a few easy steps
1. Click start and then run
2. In the text box in the Run window, type msconfig and click OK. This will open the System Configuration Utility program.
3. On top of the system configuration utility you have the following tabs
- Whatever is listed above can help you to do a lot of systems administration from the way it starts and behaves to shutdown.

Before I unleash the cool steps of configuring a belkin router, I must inform you that I carried out my experiments with an old version of belkin “Wireless G router”. But right now on market we have quite a number of new versions of a belkin wireless router.
Step 1: Get yourself a UTP Ethernet cable; plug your router into power (ofcourse I know you know this…right?).
Connect your Ethernet cable into any of the 4 LAN ports on the wireless router.
Configure your laptop with an IP Address “192.168.2.2”.
NOTE: The default configured network on the Belkin router is “192.168.2.0/24” and the belkin router has an IP Address of 192.168.2.1 by default.

It can happen to anybody; your computer starts to really slow down, acting weird (unwanted programs start popping up, webpage website start duplicating themselves, computer freezes alot and many other symptoms). At this point you begin to think you’ve contracted a computer virus.
Don't feel stupid, this even happens to the most technically savvy people amongst us. If you don't already have a virus scanner (antivirus software) I suggest installing one and scanning your computer for viruses.
Your computer may also slow down not because of a virus, but because of one’s carelessness or ignorantly doing what you think is helping. Such as installing more than one antivirus on your computer or un-necessary applications that run in the background and take up a lot of your resources hence slowing down your machine.
Of recent I had VSAT installation using iDirect 3100 Modem and with help of iSite Software.
It was great to get back in the field after 1year of abandoning VSAT installations, network stuff and systems. Well the installation was a success and I therefore decided to share with you my two days in the field.
Well today let us talk about VSAT installation using iDirect modem and iSite Software for uploading the option file.
