Wireless Tips – Does Your Wireless Router Keep Disconnecting or Dropping the Connection? I’ve had a Netgear wireless router for about a year now and it’s been pretty good until a couple of weeks back all of sudden my wireless connection kept dropping or I could not connect to the router unless I restarted the router! It was a royal pain in the butt, but because I’m lazy I didn’t get around to fixing it earlier! If you’re in the same situation, here’s what you can do to fix the problem!

wall m0n0wall is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package that, when used together with an embedded PC, provides all the important features of commercial firewall boxes (including ease of use) at a fraction of the price (free software). m0n0wall is based on a bare-bones version of FreeBSD, along with a web server, PHP and a few other utilities. The entire system configuration is stored in one single XML text file to keep things transparent. m0n0wall is probably the first UNIX system that has its boot-time configuration done with PHP, rather than the usual shell scripts, and that has the entire system configuration stored in XML format. In m0n0wall 1.8.1, the base system has been switched to FreeBSD 8.4 for better support of recent hardware, and there have been significant improvements, new features and bug fixes in many areas.

How to crack a .zip or .rar password protected file? How secure is Winzip and Winrar encryption? Both programs WinZip and WinRar use AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) for encryption, when implemented correctly and in conjunction with a long alphanumerical hard to guess passphrase, the AES cipher is impossible to crack in a reasonable amount of time, that means in your lifetime. State sponsored agencies are also not able to crack a password protected Zip or Rar file if this has been encrypted with a hard to guess pass, the law of mathematics just like the law of physics, is equal for everyone. Recovering a password protected .zip or .rar file The only known method to recover a forgotten password from a password protected .zip or .rar file created using the latest WinZip and WinRar versions, is to use a brute force attack.

Secure Your Wireless Router In The Short Term By Assigning It An Aggressive Name As more devices ship with wireless networking capabilities, it becomes increasingly important to have routers that are capable of handling connections from hardware such as tablets, laptops and mobile phones. The problem is that many routers still in use are perfectly good pieces of hardware, except for one drawback – they don’t support Wireless-N or offer advanced encryption such as WPA. With the threat of drive-by Wi-Fi theft and the risk of secure data being transferred over a non-secure connection, wireless routers without the most current security options can be temporarily shored up with just a bit of imagination. Meanwhile, there are ways in which you can get hold of modern routers for free and connect to them using low-cost USB devices.
