If you want to configure a Wireless Network, you have to first step through a network setup wizard that gathers their network preferences. Then, the Windows will configure the Computer with authentication and encryption settings for a protected Wireless Network and store the configuration on a Flash Drive. If you’re adding Computers that have Windows XP SP2 or later, Windows Vista or Windows 7 to the Wireless Network, it will be as simple as connecting the Flash Drive to each Computer. The USB Flash Drives brings an excellent way to grant guests access to an encrypted Wireless Network even if the Group Policy is the preferred way to configure the Domain member Computers. Here, the main the thing you’ve to remember is the Wireless Network should be isolated from the Internal Networks to protect your Intranet.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
