In the question 7 of your homework? hehe

the problem is with the signal, this would work if the whole 300m was visible you could look from the other end to the other. It would work in a hall or a open space. but as there are walls in between the range doesn't extend as far. Personally I would Use 3 wireless accesspoints to cover the whole building, if there are many stores. I might need to add additional accesspoints to cover the whole building.

Question 10

I would personally choose a remotely configureable switch / hub. so if a problem came up I could connect to it from my workdesk.

    I mean if there are many floors in the building. Stores, well you know what I mean, not shops.

    Intelligent, it has the remote control features.(network management, etc etc)

    I would say it is the best choice to a remote office with no it staff.

    Intelligent Hubs:

    Intelligent hubs add some more features to that provided by the
    active hubs. An intelligent hub provides all the features of a passive
    and an active hub; it also provides some features, which help in
    managing the network resources effectively and efficiently. Intelligent
    hubs help in improving the performance of the network/LAN that you are
    using. As an active hub helps in finding out where the problem
    persists, an intelligent hub itself finds out the problem in the
    network, diagnoses it and tries to rectify it without letting the
    problem hamper the performance of the network. Intelligent hubs
    provides feature that helps in determining the exact cause and exact
    place of the fault, this saves lot of time and energy which otherwise
    would have been required for finding out the exact place of fault and
    identifying the solution for it. Another feature of intelligent hub is
    that they can decide which packet goes in which output line, this helps
    in controlling and minimizing data traffic in the network, which
    results in improved performance of the network/LAN.

    Intelligent hubs also help in managing the data communication
    within the network, it recognizes the slower devices automatically and
    helps them to transmit the data with their own speed, and during this
    time the hub manages the traffic within the network effectively. This
    feature also improves the performance of the network manifolds. An
    intelligent hub also adopts the changes in the network very easily and
    it also supports different technologies without need of changing
    anything in configuration.

    as these are just school questions Id say intelligent is the best choice but in real life it would debend, obviously if the remote office has only 1-2 people it wouldn't be smart to invest in a intelligent hub, a passive or active one might do just fine.

Try going into the system then device manager uninstall the wifi driver. Reboot the pc and it should auto load the driver when getting back on the desktop. Then see if it ask for the WEP key

Need network key for NETGEAR (virgin) to connect

for that you have to access your router.
connect your router to computer with ehternet cable.
then access it with following link.
type user as 'admin' and password as "admin" or blank or 'password'

then go to wireless security then you find WEP or WAP key there but it is in * or # format so you can't know it.
So you have to set new key so you can easily know it.
Then set new network key then save and restart the router then you can connect it with new key.

Finding the wireless internet

Hi here is a tutorial how to connect up.. One has to ensure that the wifi settings are all the same.. also the Logon & password must be entered as well as any WAP encrytion that maybe used.. It is a good idea to ask the person who administrates the WiFi at the hotel for the setting so you can access and logon to their network.
