    New PC Setup


    Current setup is this.

    PC#1: Private network. Connection to the web is via Ethernet cable via a Wi-Fi router. Wi-Fi is disabled. I get much faster D/L speeds via Ethernet.

    PC#2: Using same Wi-Fi router of PC#1, but using Wi-Fi to connect to the web. Much slower D/L speeds than PC#1. Not sure how I did this, but when checking Advanced settings in the Network and Sharing folder, I show two Ethernet connections and one Wi-Fi connection. Windows will not allow me to delete either Ethernet connection. "Delete" is grayed out.

    So when the wife's new PC arrives, I want to create an Ethernet connection from the router so she can enjoy the faster D/L speeds that I get. I would like to know the process for creating this type of a setup. Should I initially let Windows find my router and create a Wi-Fi connection and then attempt to create an Ethernet connection or just temporarily turn off the router while setting up the new PC and create an Ethernet connection? I do need Wi-Fi for printer, phones and Echo Dots. Just don't need it for the PC's.

    Thanks

    :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

    Need Serious Help: How To Record Video of What is Done on my PC?

    I suggest the following simple steps:

    1. Set the autosave options in MS Office to a low value say 5 minutes.
    2. Setup file history to autosave frequently - the shortest period is 5 mins
    3. Install Macrium Reflect Free and configure it to do a daily incremental system backup

    You should be well covered if you do the above to protect your key files.
