How To Improve Your Broadband Speed

If you're having performance issues, check that the white coaxial cable that screws into the back of the hub is on securely. If you take the small spanner that was provided with your hub and just turn it clockwise... This will ensure you don't over-tighten it. Ycan also use fingers if you don't have one of these small spanners, just to make sure it's secure. That will then be giving the hub the best possible signal.

Having multiple devices connected throughout the home can definitely make the Internet feel slower, especially if anyone's doing some heavy downloading at peak times, which would be in the evenings or at weekends. If you have any non-critical downloads to do, we advise doing them in the small hours of the morning.

To ensure you're getting the best possible connection between your hub and your PC, best to use an Ethernet cable. They do come in multiple colours. If you plug it into the back of the Super Hub, it will make a distinct click. And then plug the other end into your computer. If you don't have one of these Ethernet cables, you can pick one up from any computer store.

When using wireless broadband, you need to take into account where the wireless comes from. If let's say on the Virgin Media Super Hub, it comes from the front where the Virgin badge is. On this Super Hub, it comes from this strip at the front. Like any wireless router or Super Hub, these devices need to be unobstructed.

Having it next to large pieces of furniture, fish tanks, behind the sofa, these aren't good for it. It needs to be in an open space.

Other devices can hamper the signal of your wireless connection. Things like cordless phones, baby monitors, even your next-door neighbour's wireless router.

What I would recommend is placing your Virgin Media Super Hub at least a metre away from any large object or electrical device. Ensuring that it's not on the floor will give you the best possible wireless connection.

One of the most common ways to improve your wireless signal is to change the wireless channel. This will stop any interference from the surrounding area and other routers.

The next thing you need to do is check that your PC or laptop is using the most up-to-date security software. This will stop any viruses or nasties infecting your computer and slowing it down.

The last thing you need to do is make sure that your operating system is up-to-date. If you're using a Windows-based machine, you need to make sure that Windows Update is set to automatic.

And that's it. That will keep your PC running safe and secure.

Samsung Galaxy S4: Dual Camera, Dual capture works well

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a reality and we know all the details, which by the way are quite similar to what we already knew about the rumors but some surprises.

A clear example would be the cameras, we knew that the principal would have a thirteen-megapixel sensor and a two-megapixel front, however the details about their roles had not transpired.  

During the presentation the company carefully explained all the features of the camera of its new flagship such as the feature package called Dual Camera, a system that offers the possibility of using the two chambers of the Samsung Galaxy S4 simultaneously.

Dual Camera has a number of features to be used simultaneously with the main camera front, the intention of this service is that the person making the picture also be immortalized in the image. For example Dual Shot allows you to frame a scene and while our face appears in a small box. Once we have captured the two images allows us to add a little context to the picture taken with the front camera to choose from several different models.  

The idea of this feature is Samsung they run those situations where the photographer loses the ability to include yourself in the picture. This system also works for video recording and management is the same, the image captured by the camera appears in a box front. It is very interesting to take pictures of any occasion, whether a landscape or a group of beings we appear and also us. Lastly in Dual Camera Dual Video Call is, in Castilian would be something like dual video call. As its name suggests uses the same system but in video calls and our partner can see us at the same time you can see the environment in which we find ourselves.

The camera of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a thirteen-megapixel sensor with BSI technology is what is commonly known as backlit sensor, this system takes more light to come out better pictures even in low light. The front has two megapixel camera and also has the technology to make the pictures and videos come out clear. Both cameras allow FullHD video recording at 30 frames per second and have features like auto focus, face detection and geo-tagging.  

The Samsung Galaxy datasheet S4 does not disappoint at all, some of its most prominent are the five-inch full HD display, quad-core processor at 1.9 gigahertz (although there will be another version with eight processor cores to 1.6 gigahertz), 16/32/64 GB of internal memory, two GB of RAM, LTE mobile network access or 3G (HSPA + at 21 Mbps) and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
