Am assuming you have a broadband link that you want to use in your office or at home on more than one computer, right?
If so, you’re just in the right place for great tips on how you can have that internet connection shared among the computers you have.

First before we move on sharing internet connection, answer the questions below?

  • How many computers are to use that broadband internet link?
  • Do you have a network cable or patch code?
  • If computers are more than one do you have a hub or switch around? Atleast one with eight ports (it can be any brand CNet or D-Link, or Cisco switch or Wireless router.).
  • Confirm that your computer has network card, atleast one. But if your broadband connection is using the existing network card I suggest you purchase another network card so that you have two because we shall use that other one to connect the rest of computers onto internet.

Are you tired of your current internet service provider-ISP? You what to switch to another one you had on adverts? Well, when switching to another ISP you should first consider taking a survey on all the different ones available on the market. Make sure the one can meet your needs.
I decided to compile a few tips that will help you make an educated decision instead of just jumping into a service agreement with an ISP that has glittering bells and whistles.
Before choosing among your options, take the time to do the research. First answer these simple questions, which you can then use as a guide to making an informed choice of an ISP:

For those that like an email application program with nice graphics, more features and better presentation of your emails then Microsoft outlook is a way to go. With Microsoft outlook, setup is a little bit different from that of Microsoft outlook express.

Microsoft Outlook comes with Microsft Office software (It can be Office 2003, or Office 2007 or any new version)

Follow the steps below to have your emails downloaded using m/s outlook.
I assume you have got all the settings needed from your service provider. Not yet? Well you better ask for the following:-

In any computer let it be desktop or laptop with windows operating system (2000, XP or VISTA) there is M/S Outlook Express or Windows Mail program which comes with the operating system already installed.
Before we start configuring outlook express or windows mail to pick and send emails you must ensure you have the following from your respectable mail/internet service provider:-

  • E-mail address. An example of an e-mail address is "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or any other domain name This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.".
  • Username. For example, if your e-mail address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., your username is "yourname." Sometimes username is your full email address ‘This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Password.
  • Incoming mail server name. An example of an incoming mail server is "mail.lwegatech.com.".
  • Incoming mail server type. Is the incoming mail server type a POP3 server?
  • Outgoing mail server name. An example of an outgoing mail server is "mail.lwegatech.com."
  • Does your account require that you use secure password authentication?
  • Does the ISP use any non-standard e-mail ports say 26 or 1025?

Windows has a lot of great features and visual enhancements that make it the most attractive Operating System (OS) to date. However, with all of the new features and attractive effects, the operating system has a higher system overhead, which means your hardware has to work even harder. If you are like me, and do not always have the fastest hardware, this will help you get the most out of your current hardware by reducing the heavy workload.

Startup Services
Windows enables certain features at startup that are really not necessary and can be disabled to relieve the stress at boot. Take a look at the processes and you will realize that most of these services are just slowing you down. The best tool for disabling hidden programs that run on start-up is the System Configuration Utility. To run it, type msconfig in a command prompt, and press “Enter” a list of services will be displayed. Go through them and unclick the ones you deem unnecessary but I would advise you to be careful.  Try to read about each service and what it does before you click on it.
