Stay Connected Without Connection

Staying connected with the world is perhaps the most important aspect for many of us and of course, it isn’t possible without internet. Particularly, you suffer most with the deprivation of the internet when you are on a trip and you are at the home of relatives which are still living in the past century and don’t have internet connection. Now what you can do? How can you prepare yourself to come across the terrible deprivation of internet?

Don’t worry at all, you are not the going to cut off the world since most of the companies and giants understand your most “basic” need, here some option which could be considered to stay connected at the places where you are thinking to cut off.

Personal Hotspot

Convert your mobile into modem. Apple offers Personal Hotspot feature to enjoy internet. Personal Hotspot feature was brought in with the launch of iOS 4. Go to setting and tap Personal Hotspot and switch on.

Mobile Hotspot

You can still use your smartphone or tablet as a broadband if you don’t have the earlier feature. This could be the better option if you want to provide access to your friends and family accompanying you. MiFi was the pioneer of this sector, although with the passage of time we have got variety of options. You can contact your carrier if they provide mobile hotspot service, such as AT&T offers different plans which you can subscribe.

Internet at Hotel

Free internet at the hotel is another option but some luxurious hotels will charge you for using the connectivity services. However, most of the hotels offer free internet, you can contact front desk and acquire password for Wi-Fi connection.

Dealing with poor signals

You may feel the experience of distant wi-fi signals as your modem could be at one end of the house and you are sitting or you room is in the basement. In such case you can consider following options.

Base Station:

Base station is preferred choice to cope distant signals. AirPort Express is the best option, it costs $99 and it you can feel the difference.

Inner Reality of Ethernet Cable

Inner Reality of Ethernet Cable

Actually, all kinds of Ethernet cables almost look the same from outside, but its inside that matters the most.

Choosing any networking cable by only seeing it’s outer case seems very difficult. World is moving really fast technologies are upgraded on daily bases so it’s better to keep an eye on what we are using and what might be next.

Beginning is always difficult so, the first and most important thing is to find a reliable trust worthy cable supplier like 1000ft cables, on which you can rely on. Because there are many suppliers who fool people because not everyone is capable of recognizing cable from its outside jacket, instead of using Cat5 you should use Cat 6 with advance features so,  it’s really important to know that difference between these two cables.

Category 6 mostly known as Cat6 is standardized cable made for Gigabit Ethernet and other network physically layers that were compatible in past with Cat5/5e cables. Cat 6 is simply superior to Cat5/5e cable, and biggest factor that differ them is frequency at which key parameters are being measured. As compared to other cables Cat 6 has more strict policies for cross talk and system noise.

Cat 5e provides performance up to 100 MHz as compared to Cat 6 which provides performance up to 250 MHz, and now the upgrade of Cat 6, Cat 6a which can generate performance up to 500 MHz.

Science has made life very easy, upgrading with that pace needs huge amount of courage hats off to manufactures who worked really hard for providing us with the best.

So, they use different techniques to make cables better, the first among them is Pair Twist Rate, improved noise cancellation can be achieved because of it. Signal degradation can be stopped by avoiding Pair Staggering. Another and Basic method of generation performance out of cables is to use good quality material in the manufacturing of the cables.
