Linksys WRT54G Wireless G Router: An Easy, Home-Based Wireless Network

There are hundreds of wireless Broadband Routers on the market, from name and no-brands alike. You can pay as little as $25. for one or as much as $200. At under $50., this Linksys WRT54G simply cannot be beaten and you with speedify review you will know why.

After many years with only a desktop computer at home, I acquired my first laptop. It came equipped with a WiFi card but in order to be able to access my high-speed broadband (cable modem) connection at home, I needed a wireless router. I tried going really cheap (Belkin) first and after having to return two of them, stepped up, modestly, to this Linksys WRT45G (version 8.0.) It is fantastic!

Using the straight forward instructions included in the box, I had it fully installed and working within 30 minutes. The WRT45G is space-age appearing – housed in a blue and black box about 5″ X 7″ X 1.3″ with two adjustable antennas – one on each side – it also hosts the customary set of lights to indicate internet connectivity, modem plugin, power, and four available Ethernet plug-in ports.

Unlike the several other brands I had tried, the Linksys WRT45G installation was easy and answers the usual questions about what to do when as you go along, following the clear directions illustrated and explained right on the installation CD. As a side point, all Linksys products are made by Cisco Systems, long-time computer hardware and server manufacturer for the industry. This, perhaps, reflects in the quality of their Linksys line of products.

It begins with a clear direction to DO NOTHING until prompted to take each step, in sequence, according to the directions. This begins with a categorical warning to NOT unplug ANYTHING until instructed to do so. The installation ambiguities of both the Belkin and LG wireless broadband routers I tried were quite a contrast.

One simple step at a time led to a successful installation! About 35 minutes after I had begun, I had my laptop running online from the other end of the house at full speed! What a delightful experience. A product that actually works by doing exactly what it claimed to do. The Linksys WRT45G worked like a charm from the first try. All I had to do was to carefully and faithfully follow the straight forward, intuitive directions.

For those given to technical specifications, the device operates at a speed of frequency of 2.4 GHz but does not interfere with portable phones or other devices that run in that range, and works at speeds up to 54 Mbps. Adequate by just about any common need standard. My laptop actually operated faster online than the desktop while using it! It was reasonably priced, easy to install, looks really cool, AND works just the way it is supposed to. The Linksys WRT45G. What more could a consumer hope for?

I am hard to please when it comes to electronics. I have returned more than several items because either they did not work as claimed or because the set-up instructions were so complex that I could not get them to work correctly. I am pleased to report that this Linksys WRT45G is a welcome exception to what seems to have become a routine problem – Unnecessarily complex installations that tend to require either a level of technical skill beyond what I, as a modestly ‘amateur – intermediate’ techie have or require the frustrating need of the manufacturers ‘help’ line and the inevitable waits and language complications that tend to go along with it.

Fully compliant with both Windows XP and Vista devices, this WRT45G broadband router provides wireless connectivity for up to four devices equipped to receive wireless broadband signals – without disrupting (as did the Belkins) the necessary functioning of the primary, hard-wired, computer and modem (Cable or DSL.) The st-up includes the option of making your wireless arrangement secure so it cannot be accessed or used by others within range without your consent. It would be foolish to install a device like this without securing it.

I am sure there are a lot of good wireless broadband routers on the market, but for the money, I don’t think you can beat the ease of installation and remarkable performance of the Linksys WRT45G.

Quick Updates for Your Kitchen Cabinets

The holiday season will be here before we know it, and thus the house guests. I am always looking for fun things to do to spice up my home, and the perfect time to take on projects in the Fall. Winter is too cold, Summer is too hot, and in the Spring I just want to do yard work. One of the easiest and most drastic changes you can make to your kitchen is with your cabinets. Here are 10 updates that you can use to spice up your home before the holiday season.

  1. Hardware is the easiest thing to change in any kitchen. Take a trip to your local home improvement store and look through some of the books on the latest kitchens. Look for hardware that catches your eye, fits your budget, and goes with the current styling of your home. If you already have the hardware, you can buy putty the color of your current cabinets to fill any holes that show. However, you should know how to measure drawer slides before you start changing the hardware. 
  1. Changing the color of your cabinets is another quick update. Make sure you are not painting over really expensive wood before you begin. Choose a color that is bold without being loud. Look for complementary colors to those that already exist in your home. Yellows help to create a bright feel, reds create a warm feel but can be overbearing. Just go with something you like.
  1. Open cabinetry is becoming more and more popular. By using tools to remove the center portions of your cabinet doors, you can replace it with glass for a modern feel or fabric for a country feel. You will need to make sure this is what route you want to go as it is a more permanent fix. If you don’t like the results you may end up spending more to fix what you did.
  1. If you have nicer wooden cabinets, you may want to consider re-staining your cabinets. You will need to take a weekend and sand the cabinets down before staining them, but you will be able to choose a stain that coordinates with how you envision your kitchen.
  1. Plain paint may work in some spaces and others may require stencils. Stencils can add that special something to my space and with the use of embossing agents and multi-color projects, you can make your cabinets stand out from your neighborhood and blend in with your kitchen.
  1. Adding frames to the existing exterior of your cabinets can help you create a fresh new look. This works especially well for older cabinets with no decorative touches and those made with flat wood. Adding molding to your cabinets in another color than that of the cabinet will add a decorative touch and help you to create a unique, custom kitchen.
  1. Having your cabinets professionally refaced is another good option. Professional refacers can do everything from simply re-stain the cabinets to sand them down and create new design work in the wood. While this choice is more pricey than most of the rest, it is definitely cheaper than replacing all your cabinets.
  1. Many stores sell aftermarket movable cabinets. By adding these to your existing setup, you can create a different look. You may even decide to take out some of your existing cabinets to create a custom look at a fraction of the price of buying all new cabinets.

  1. If you like the current set up of your cabinets, you may want to look into having just the doors replaced. Many home improvement stores will measure your existing cabinets and offer you different styles to choose from. Again, you need to consider the price of this. If you can’t afford to replace the doors, you may want to look into some of the other options to last you until you save up enough to go all out.
  1. Purchasing new cabinets may be the only way for some to rescue their kitchen. While this may be the most expensive option, you will definitely get a whole new look that fits your style and not the previous owners. Before you take on this task, price cabinets for your kitchen and make sure you can afford them. While kitchens are generally a good investment for homeowners, with current market conditions you may want to look into all your options.

Playing a Carry in League of Legends

The carry is an interesting position in the team composition. While the early game can be very dangerous to the carry, their job is saved for the later portions of the game. Skills and abilities on a carry are generally low to begin with but will scale every level with their item statistics. In the beginning a carry most likely would not be able to take on a regular character by themselves, but eventually they will be able to take on multiple enemies alone.

Team Fights

During team fights the carry will be the main damage output in the late game. This is available to a carry when they are not targeted by the enemy team, so coming in after the tank or initiator is an important part of their job. Carries can be either attack damage oriented or ability power oriented, however the majority of which are basic damage characters. This is because the damage they deal is not reliant on the cool down timer of abilities, rather the constant barrage of attacks.

Because the goal of the carry is to get hit a minimal amount of times, the armor and magic resist of these characters is not a big focus. While this makes the character more likely to die, item abilities like life steal and movement speed to run away, allow for the character to be more efficient in a fight. Some aggressive items allow for greater health points and armor. These can be used as well but should not be stacked.

Things to Remember

Late game ultimate items are very useful for these kinds of characters, and while stacking attack speed and damage can be very useful. Remember that life steal, critical strike chance, and slows are important to a carry. Because many characters at this level are able to remove themselves from combat, crowd control is an important part of the game. The easiest for a carry to gain is slow, this is gained through items and for some characters, abilities.

Slow and steady wins the race and this policy has to be followed in the games as well which is why Pokemon has been a success for nearly two decades and all you require is a Pokemon go account to sail through all the levels.

Be careful when choosing a carry for a game. Make sure that your team composition has what is required for the game to end in a victory. Being a carry in a light team is sometimes very dangerous as your character will be targeted by the opposing team.

Your abilities as the carry can determine the game. Try to support your team mid game, and know that your actions late game can effect the outcome greatly. Early game try to stay under the radar and allow your allies to work their magic. Your job is late game kills and success, always keep that in mind.

What is Starbucks Via?

Perhaps you’ve seen the countdown signs at your local Starbucks telling you how many days until “Via” will be arriving. If you’re still in the dark what “Via” is, it’s going to be the first instant coffee ever offered by Starbucks.

Starbucks is making claims that Via will be as rich and flavorful as their normal brewed Starbucks coffees. This new instant coffee will be available in two strengths: Columbia which will be a mild tasting brew and Italian roast which promises to be a flavorful extra bold tasting brew. The flavor of the traditional coffee blend will be delicious in comparison to the modern one. The beans had been extracted from the hands to offer delicious taste to the person. 

Either version is made from 100% Arabica beans. One of the reasons the coffee, though instant, should taste as good as the brewed coffees is due how the beans are ground. Starbucks will be micro-grinding the coffee to help keep the essential oils and flavors preserved.

Starbucks introduced Via back in February 2009 to London, Chicago, and Seattle. The coffee was also for sale from Costco and Target. Via should be available in the Los Angeles, CA area within the next week (by Sept. 30, 2009). This coffee isn’t aimed toward people who will be drinking their coffee at Starbucks or even taking their coffee to go. This new instant Starbucks is for folks who want that gourmet coffee flavor on the run, perhaps while sitting at their desk during the work day.

Preliminary reviews seem to favor the flavor of the new Via over regular instant coffee. Most people do agree it’s not your “mom’s instant coffee,” but neither is it your coffee house brewed Starbucks.

Via will come pre-packaged in convenient little packets, so all you’ll need to do is add hot water (8 ounces for here in the USA and 6 ounces in the UK). This will make getting your Starbucks fix a little easier, quicker, and bit cheaper. Via will be selling at $2.99 for 3 packs or $9.99 for 12 packs (each pack will make one cup of coffee).

While $1.00 per cup of coffee may be a little steep, even at instant coffee prices it’s not expensive when you think of the cost in “Starbucks dollars.” A grande cup of regular coffee (the smallest cup sold at Starbucks) is around $1.60. So, the price is actually a bit cheaper than a regular cup of “Joe.”

Another item of interest is that this coffee is ethically sourced, which basically means the coffee grower who provide the beans have met certain labor and environmental standards in the coffee production process. The words “ethically sourced” have nothing to do with the coffee being grown via organic means, so please don’t get the terms “ethically sourced” and “organic” confused.

Will Via live up to its hype? Only time will tell and of course more importantly, the consumers.

Nostalgic Gift Ideas For The Men In Your Life

Growing up in our household meant that without fail, the hardest person to shop for was our father. Every Father’s Day, Christmas and on each one of his birthdays, we daughters ran around frantically trying to think up gift ideas for our humble father. Time and time again, I found myself giving him presents that never really seemed to capture how much I thought of him. By the time I had reached adulthood, he’d had every tool he was ever going to need and enough mugs to last a lifetime. If you are anything like me, you also understand how difficult buying gifts for the men in your life can be. It is often so hard to find a meaningful gift that really conveys how much you care. Fortunately, I have stumbled across some unique and nostalgic gift ideas that just about any man would appreciate.

The first on my list of nostalgic gift ideas can be found at radiospirits.com. This is a unique website that sells radio broadcasts from a number of shows which aired during the forties and fifties. From Superman to the Green Hornet, Radiospirits has something for just about every father or grandfather in America. Whether he was crazy over comics or comedies, Radiospirits is the place to go. Prices vary for each broadcast, depending on time increments, which range from 1 to 20 hour collections. Broadcasts are also offered on both cd and cassette and many packages include bonus items such as collector’s cards and other neat memorabilia. The nostalgic ambience of radio broadcast is a great way to take your father back to his own childhood.

Moviegoods.com is another great website riddled with nostalgic gift possibilities. This website contains thousands of movie posters for purchase and is a great service for anyone interested in movies. At Moviegoods, you can purchase a high quality reproduction photo from just about any movie, from any era. They have tons of classic and nostalgic movie posters from Sergio Leone’s “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” to John Sturges “The Great Escape”. Know your father’s favorite old movie? For about 15 bucks, you can purchase an 11″ x 17″ portal in time.

For the particularly nostalgic man, memoirsink.com is the way to go. They provide a great way to show tribute to any grandfather. Memoirsink creates memoirs from extensive interviews and other bits of personal information that you provide. If you’ve got the time, money and foresight, Memoirsink can create the ultimate nostalgic gift. The detail involved in each memoir is determined only by the amount of effort you are willing to put in and how much information is provided to the Memoirsink’s writers. The effort and thought put into such a gift is not likely to go unnoticed and will both surprise and impress most.

Finally, the last of my nostalgic gift ideas can be found at videoconversionexperts.com. Here you can convert all types of old footage onto DVDs. Whether your home videos were captured on 8mm, Super 8mm, or 16mm, Video Conversion Experts can most likely transfer the footage. Scour your attic for those nostalgic home videos of first birthdays, vacations and other family traditions. Or maybe you just want to restore some old photos or footage. Either way, let the Video Conversion Experts transform your father’s happiest memories. The results will be a tribute so great it will bring any father to tears.

But if you want to give a gift that is somewhat stylish, you may want to consider a minimalist wallet. Gone are the days when men’s wallets were big and bulky. Today, thin and small wallets are the hype and trend.

This holiday season, show your father or grandfather how much they really mean to you. Instead of that new bestseller, surprise them with something a little more nostalgic. You will be glad you did.

Planning To Get a Pug? Here Are The Things That You Need To Know

If you are planning to get and own a pug, you are in the right place. This article will provide you some of the important things that you should know before getting a pug. Knowing these things will help you do some adjustments towards the needs and behavior of the pug. Hence, you can be a responsible and loving pet owner.

Pugs are smart

If you’re thinking that pugs are just purely cute and that they are not smart just like other dogs. You are wrong. Just because they don’t belong to the breeds of dogs who are considered as ‘work dogs’ doesn’t mean that they are not smart. Actually, pugs are smart and they can be trained easily just like any other dogs. They can be trained with skills such as tracking, agility, scent detection and even working with seniors. So if you are getting a pug, it is advisable to provide them with training and workout.

They love to eat almost anything

Another thing that you importantly need to know before getting a pug is that they are food driven. They do really love to eat almost anything. Some pug owners say that they have seen their pugs eat doughnuts, sticks, pasta noodles, gums and even lollipops. Pugs don’t give up their treat that easy if you are getting them to drop the food. So as a pug owner, it is advisable that you ensure that you don’t leave any food on the floor that they might reach and eat easily. You also have to be strict to their diet.

House train might be a challenge

Generally, pugs are not fond of inclement weather. This would mean that it would be challenging for you to get your pugs to the bathroom during a snowstorm or get them out the house during a very hot day. Hence, you should be patient in reinforcing any outdoor pottying. You have to encourage and train your pet to adapt to the weather condition regardless how much they resist. But in doing so, you have to keep in mind that pugs are only encouraged through positive reinforcement. Using punishment is certainly not advisable.

They love to follow you everywhere

If you easily get irritated by the behavior of dogs or pets in general that follow their owners everywhere, then probably, pugs are not the right pets for you. This is because pugs will follow you around everywhere. Whether it is in your bedroom, kitchen, living room, or in any other parts of your house, pugs will surely love to follow you. Yes, there are really clingy. So if you are fine with this behavior, you can get a pug as a pet.

Pugs are prone to health problems

Another important thing that you should know about pugs is that they are prone to health problems. Pugs in general usually get some health issues. Some of these include eye and nose fold care, breathing problems, food allergies, eye scratches and a higher than normal tendency to react to vaccines. This means that pugs are really high maintenance. You really have to spend some money on medicine and other things they need to make sure that they are healthy, safe and free from any health issues. You also have to bring your pug to vet regularly to have him checked.

They love some physical activities

If you think that pugs are couch potatoes and lazy, you are wrong. Yes, pugs enjoy naps but they do also lobe some activities like regular playtime and walks. So if you are quite busy at work or at your business, you definitely need to look for a dog walker because a pug cant hold its small bladder for that long. Giving your pugs some activities and playtime will also help your pet to have a healthy body. So make sure your pugs are active physically so they wont get health problems. Dogs being trained to electric fence are usually healthy.

They shed a lot

You also need to know that pugs do shed a lot. Hence, you should take time to consider removing or at least covering your couch, carpet, kitchen, chairs, clothes and bed. But the good news is, since pugs are smart, you can easily train them to shred on one place only. This will help you to get rid of the hassle of removing dirt on such items. But then again, make sure that you are using positive reinforcement when training your dog instead of punishment.

Overall, when planning to adapt a dog pet, it is advisable to do some research first about the breed in order to avoid heartaches and headaches. It is important to know all the important things about the behavior of the dog so you can easily adjust to it.

Louis Vuitton Handbags- Bond With The Best

When it comes to desires and wants, it is difficult to contain it down to just a few as the list is quite long without any respite. How do you keep a straight face and control your excitement when you see your favorite items and products while out shopping.

Today we are going to talk about certain products that are a favorite of the woman folk and so much so that sometimes they are even willing to kill for it given the circumstances.

While there are a number of items that women love like cosmetics, makeup kit, kitchen and food items, jewelry etc. but the one that is most important to them above all are the handbags and not just regular ones from the old street market but one that command a certain level of dignity and respect.

Royalty Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is a unique brand and its handbags are something to die for as they can easily relate to all kinds of women with different temperaments and moods as they are of the opinion that shopping is the best form of entertainment as far as they are concerned.

Handbags, in true sense, are the favorite companion that always dangle on the shoulders of women and houses their beloved personal items inside like jewelry and cosmetics.

Louis Vuitton was launched way back in 1858 by the eponymous fashion designer from France, who took inspiration from his mother, a renowned hat maker of her times and it was her death that gave him inspiration to start his own company and he started it with his own name to make it unique.

Copycat

Louis Vuitton was a huge hit and its products started selling like hot cakes all over France and very soon it took over other European countries as well like Italy, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Poland and so many others, following which it moved on to North America and Asia as well.

Given the universal popularity of the brand, especially the handbags, it was but natural that rival companies would start feeling insecure as their brand value was affected and the companies were on the verge of collapsing.

Therefore, they started working on fake Louis Vuitton products that produced excellent replicas of the original models and they were so perfect that anyone could mistake them for Vuitton and you can click here to learn more about replicas in general https://www.mau-fashion.com/louis-vuitton-replicas/.

The above link would provide you an excellent insight of the copycats that dominate the original products in the market and this practice proved to be quite profitable to the rivals in the initial stages.

Conclusion

All in all, Louis Vuitton handbags are a distant dream for many women and can very well be considered their best friend and the close bond that they both share has to be seen to be believed in essence that even now in 2020, these bags have not lost with sheen despite being nearly 160 years of existence and keep on getting better and better like old wine in a new bottle.

Five Essential Facebook Applications

Facebook is one of the most popular social networking websites and millions of people use it every day. It’s really fun to experiment with new applications, but some are just more special than the rest!

iLike

One of the greatest things about Facebook is making your profile “your own.” iLike helps you do just that by letting you add your favorite songs and artists to your profile. The iLike window on your profile will show either randomized songs from your list or a list of preselected songs. Nearly all songs feature a thirty second playback and some offer full playback. iLike is a great way to individualize your profile and share your favorite music with your friends.

Flixster Movies

Have you ever wondered if your taste in movies is similar to your friends? This application tells you just that. First, you rate a certain list of movies and then Flixster Movies will compare your ratings to your friends’. Through Flixster Movies, you can also rate and review any movie. You can list upcoming movies as “Want to See” or movies you just can’t stand as “Not Interested.” There are several other features, such as “QuickRate” and “Quizzes,” so be sure to check them out!

Pieces of Flair

Another way to individualize your profile is the Pieces of Flair application. A piece of “Flair” is a button-shaped picture that will usually have a funny or iconic saying written on it. Flair can be sent to friends or added to a “bulletin board” on your profile. While Flair can be used to keep your Facebook profile “your own,” it’s also a way to have some laughs with friends.

MouseHunt

This is a great “Just for Fun” application that you can play with your friends. When you start, you are given a basic mousetrap and cheese to attract mice. Once every hour the application checks your trap. If there is a mouse, you gain points to the next achievement level and money to upgrade your trap and buy cheese. Once every fifteen minutes you can sound the “Hunter’s Horn.” This starts a hunt for you and all of your online friends in the same area (Town, Meadow, Harbor, Mountain, etc). Everyone involved in the hunt may or may not catch a mouse. Game play may seem complicated, but it is actually really fun and is a nice way to take a break now and then.

Extended Info

While the default Personal Info subcategories are great, “Favorite Music” and “Interests” only go so far in telling people who you are. The Extended Info application lets you create your own Personal Info subcategories. Popular categories include, “Things to Do Before I Die,” “Things That Make Me Happy,” and “Nicknames.” Of course, categories are totally customizable and you can add as many categories as you want. This application is a wonderful way to set yourself apart from the mass of users with boring descriptions.

Whether you are a casual Facebook-er or completely hardcore, these applications will be great additions to your profile! But if you also love Instagram, you may want to consider BuzzVoice. It is an online service that helps users to get more followers and likes. In this generation, one of the measurements of how reliable a page is, is through the number of followers. So if you have a business, this service might be a good help.

The Best Free To Play Games You Can Play Right Now On The Nintendo Switch

Are you looking for the best games that you can get for free on the Nintendo Switch? We got you covered. In this article, we will be listing the best games that comes without a price tag. Take note that mobile games like Pokemon Go are not fully supported on the Nintendo Switch, only allowing you to sync with Pokemon: Let’s Go, a separate title made specifically for the Nintendo Switch. As such, if you are planning to buy Pokemon Go accounts on https://pokemongoaccshop.com/, take note that it is not possible to use that on the Switch. Without further ado, let’s start with our first pick:

  1. Fortnite: Battle Royale

You have to be living under a rock if you are not aware of Fortnite, the  game that took the video game industry by storm. Borrowing ideas from a popular game known as Player Unknown’s Battle Grounds, Fortnite has improved upon the formula with it’s cartoony graphics, great optimization, frequent updates, and most importantly, it is free to play. In comparison, other battle royale games such as PUBG will cost you quite a bit to play, and it is not as optimized as Fortnite especially on consoles.

Fortnite also has another advantage over its battle royale competitors – cross play across all supported device. Fortnite allows players from mobile phones, consoles, and PCs to play together in a single game. It also has consolidated progress across supported devices, which is a very handy thing to do. In comparison, games like PUBG have separate progress for its PC, mobile and console versions, and they cannot play together. This means that if you already have good progress on PC, you will have to start over again when playing on mobile or console.

  1. Warframe

Warframe is a free to play game that is available on most platforms like Windows, PS4, Xbox, and more. It is a coop shooter game set on space, which provides a fun experience. If you have not played this title yet, you can now do so with the official port on the Nintendo Switch. There is also good news for PC Warframe players, it is possible to migrate your progress from PC to the Switch version, something that is not possible right now for PS4 and Xbox players.

  1. Brawlhalla

Brawlhalla is surely an surprisingly light and portable fighter game, basically functioning as an anime-themed version of the game Super Smash Brothers. Even though this game is somewhat cartoonish and simple when it comes to graphics, it’s game play is amazingly rich, and most importantly, it is really fun to play, with or without friends.

Since this game is free to play, players are expected to do some grinding, especially when aiming to unlock other characters. The grind can be lessened or bypassed completely by paying money, but for people who do not want to spend a dime, you will have to grind and play a lot to get what you want.

  1. Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter is definitely among the greatest games available for Android and IOS, and its release on Nintendo Switch is a nice addition to the free to play games on the system. For the uninitiated, Fallout Shelter is similar to city building games but with a twist. In this game, you will build a post apocalyptic vault set in the Fallout universe, which makes this game even better for fans of the Fallout series.

One problem with the Switch port of Fallout Shelter is that the mobile game mechanics of the game are left in the Switch. These include having to wait hours upgrades and is required to check into the game once in a while. Having said that, these mechanics are more manageable on a mobile console like the Switch, especially when compared with its PS4 or Xbox brethren.

  1. Paladins

If you want a free alternative to Overwatch, Paladins is your friend. Paladins will definitely fulfill your itch for an exciting and deep team based shooter with unique skills and abilities for characters. The game has its own unique set of characters, some of which are even better compared to Overwatch heroes.

  1. Arena of Valor

Arena of Valor is a remarkable MOBA, ported from Android and IOS. Even though the hero or character selection in AoV is less compared to well-versed game titles such as DOTA 2 and League of Legends, its pretty deep modification and progress systems will definitely satisfy fans very well. If you want to play a MOBA game on the go with your Switch, you are not going to be disappointed with Arena of Valor. Being a free to play game, expect to do some grinding if you want to permanently unlock other heroes.
