Computer and smartphone users at home are beginning to get curious about the new 5G cellular technology. To help you understand what the differences are between the different generations of cellular transmission technologies, I extracted the below information from a PCMag article (see source link below).
The G in this 5G means it’s a generation of wireless technology. While most generations have technically been defined by their data transmission speeds, each has also been marked by a break in encoding methods, or “air interfaces,” that make it incompatible with the previous generation.
1G was analog cellular. 2G technologies, such as CDMA, GSM, and TDMA, were the first generation of digital cellular technologies. 3G technologies, such as EVDO, HSPA, and UMTS, brought speeds from 200kbps to a few megabits per second. 4G technologies, such as WiMAX and LTE, were the next incompatible leap forward, and they are now scaling up to hundreds of megabits and even gigabit-level speeds.
5G brings three new aspects to the table: greater speed (to move more data), lower latency (to be more responsive), and the ability to connect a lot more devices at once (for sensors and smart devices).

Many folks at home are unaware of the technology where, with inexpensive devices, you can create a wired computer network within the confines of your home by using your existing electrical wiring. Setting this up is actually quite simple (plug and play) and be done by using the devices manufactured by TP-Link. Typically one device is plugged into an electrical outlet at your router then plugged (via ethernet cable) to your router. The other device(s) are then plugged into outlets in your home, paired with the main one at the router, then plugged into the computer or components using an ethernet cable.
Wired networking will give you better security, speed, and performance; which, are the main reasons to give this a try. It is one of those networking options that people do not think about and/or are totally unaware of. This eliminates having to run networking cable all through your house and is a good option if your wireless connectivity is poor in certain areas.

One way to test the reachability of a host on the internet is to “ping” the IP address of the host or the hostname (i.e. http://www.google.com). When you perform a ping, it measures the round-trip time for the message to be echoed back to your computer.
A nice little utility, with a GUI, is PingInfoView by NirSoft. PingInfoView is a small utility that allows you to easily ping multiple host names and IP addresses, and watch the result in one table. It automatically pings to all hosts every number of seconds that you specify, and displays the number of successful and failed pings, as well as the average ping time. You can also save the ping result into text/html/xml file, or copy it to the clipboard.
The NETGEAR AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender + Extra Outlet is a number one best seller at Amazon. Extend 2.4 & 5GHz Wi-Fi up to 750 Mbps & reduce interference for better Wi-Fi coverage (and a noticeable boost in speed).

You will receive comprehensive route details, with each city and country conveniently marked on the map. Simply enter any IP-address or website and see the path network packets take to that destination. AVAILABLE as a full install or as a portable app…
If you are into networking, you most likely have heard of Radmin Remote Access Software. To promote Radmin, I noticed that they offer a FREE IP Scanner called Advanced IP Scanner that is helpful in locating and monitoring the devices (wired or wireless) that are connected to your network (home or business). Scanners such as this is helpful in identifying the IP addresses (which dynamically can change) and MAC Addresses of those devices. Years ago when I managed a network, I used an IP scanner such as this to make sure all of my network devices and computers were alive and functioning properly.
Advanced IP Scanner is a free, fast and easy-to-use network scanner for Windows. In a matter of seconds, Advanced IP Scanner can locate all the computers on your wired or wireless local network and conduct a scan of their ports. The program provides easy access to various network resources, such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and shared folders. It also enables you to detect all the IP addresses on your WiFi network. With Advanced IP Scanner, you can wake up and shut down remote groups of Windows machines. If you use Radmin remote access software, you will also enjoy the improved Radmin Server detection and integration capabilities, which allow you to connect to any scanned machine with Radmin Server.
What Advanced IP Scanner does:
- Scans network in a matter of seconds
- Detects any network devices
- Finds HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and shared folders
- Lets you connect to PCs running Radmin Serverwith one click
- Allows you to shut down computers remotely
- Supports Wake-On-Lan
- Favorites list for easy network management
- Export to HTML or CSV
- Easy and user-friendly interface
