    Is there any software by which i can work on my computer when i am away from my home ?

    Hello,you can work with your pc even away from it without a software.. In Windows, Remote Desktop allows you to access your computer from a remote location. To enable Remote Desktop, you must have administrative rights on the computer you want to use as the host (i.e., the computer to which you will connect from a remote location), which must be running one of the following versions of Windows: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows XP Professional The Remote Desktop Connection client software (for the computer from which you want to connect) is installed by default on all computers running Windows 7, Vista, or XP. Enable the Remote Desktop feature on your host computer From the Start menu, select Control Panel (or Settings, and then Control Panel). Double-click System. In Windows 7 and Vista, click Remote settings. In the "Remote Desktop" section, select one of the two options to allow connections from other computers. In Windows XP, select the Remote tab.

Typically, all administrators of the computer will have access by default. Each user must have a password before you can allow remote access. When you are finished, click OK. Your computer will now be able to accept incoming Remote Desktop connections.

From the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs. Select Accessories, and then Remote Desktop Connection. In the space next to "Computer:", type the name or IP address for your host computer. Click Connect. Note: If you would like to adjust any of your connection settings such as screen size, login information, availability of local hard drives and printers, or keyboard and sound behavior, click Options before clicking Connect. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your username, password, and domain (if required). Click OK. Once you are connected, you can use your remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it. When you are finished, in the Remote Desktop Connection window, select Start, then Shut Down.

    How to install printer

    First thing to do is install your drivers and/or software for your printer on your computer. Do not connect the printer to the computer until you are finished loading these files.

    If its a brand new printer, it should have came with a disk to install the software. Find the disk and put it in your CDROM on your computer. The computer usually recognizes the CD automatically and the installation program will appear on your screen and give instructions to follow. If your computer does not auto recognize the CD and start the install then you need to manually locate the program to start it yourself. To locate the installation file on the CD double click "my computer" from your desktop and find the drive that represents it. Your CDROM should be either "D" or any letters in sequence beyond that point. The name of the install program should show up under the drive letter that represents the CDROM. When you locate it, double click on it and find the application for installation. Double click on the install file and then just follow the prompts to complete it. After the installation of the software is complete, connect your printer to your computer and turn it on. Your computer will automatically recognize the printer and tell you that your device is connected and ready to use.

    Happy Printing!

    I have started the services of print spooler and the fax in discrepancies.. still not printing. says rpc service not available..

    RPC is yet another service that you need to enable so that printing will take place.

    Usually, when I encountered this printing error while printing a networked printer, I do the following steps (in Win XP):

    1. Open the Control Panel
    2. Open Administrative Tools => Services
    3. Disable the following services in order: (a) Print Spooler (b) Remote Procedure Call (RPC) (c) Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator and (d) Server.
    4. Minimize all open windows
    5. Refresh the PC/Laptop by pressing F5
    6. Enable the same services in item 3 in the same order
    7. Refresh PC again
    8. Print.
    If the same error re-occurs, restart your computer.

    I can't connect to my netgear wireless modem

    here are to many ways but you can use for example the remote destop application that is built-in in Windows based computers to share resources between 2 computers, and even totally control 1 remote computer:

    See this link:­/Remoteintro.mspx

    For the remote printing, do you have to set up the printer sharing first and after that connect to the printer in the side where you are, that is different from where the printer is located, follow this link:­oneycutt_july2.mspx
