How To Install A Wifi Connection

How To Install A Wifi Connection

A WiFi connection can provide wireless internet connectivity for all the computers in your household and provide freedom of movement and ease of use over traditional, wired broadband internet connections. Fortunately, installation of a WiFi connection is a relatively simple process that requires only a few steps and can be performed by anyone, even if you don’t have any experience with setting up WiFi connections. With your router at the ready and your network cable in hand, you have all you need to perform this installation.

Disconnect your computer from any Internet connection it currently has by detaching it from the cable modem. Ensure that the modem’s power plug is also detached from the wall socket. FM Transmitter(iPhone FM Transmitters )

Connect the network cable (also known as the ethernet cable) into the back of the router. To do so, make sure you make this connection via the port on the modem’s back listed as either “Internet”, “WAN” or “WLAN” (this depends on the router manufacturer).

Turn on your computer. Plug the cable modem into the wall and allow it to boot up and detect its settings. Create a temporary Internet connection by grabbing the wireless router network cable and hooking it into an open wireless router port on the router (this port cannot be the “WLAN”, “WAN” or “Internet” ports).iPhone FM Transmitter(FM Transmitter with Remote Control for iPod iPhone)

Locate the router-oriented URL that is provided by your specific broadband company. You can find this in the router’s manual. Once you find this, open your Internet browser and head to this URL, then type in the default password when prompted. This password was also in the router documentation with the URL.

Choose an SSID for your network (a network name). Select an encryption level when prompted; although this is an optional step, it will password-protect your network and protect it from others who may want to utilize it illegally. Click “Apply” to save these settings.

Sever the temporary Internet connection you created by disconnecting the network cable from your computer. Your wireless router is now configured and you will now be able to use the wireless network.Blackberry FM Transmitter(Hands-free Car Kit For Blackberry )

Connect to your new wireless network. Right-click on the network icon on the bottom toolbar on your computer’s desktop. Then, select “View Available Wireless Networks” from the menu that pops up after you right-click. Select your wireless network name you chose earlier. This will prompt you with a password screen if you chose to password-protect your connection. Enter the password and you should now be connected.

Why do some antennas only have one connection to the radio, while others have two?

Question by Naniel: Why do some antennas only have one connection to the radio, while others have two?
From what I understand, radios receive a signal because an electromagnetic field is moving around a wire (the antenna). This creates a very small electric current which is then amplified into an audible signal. I would think that the antenna would have to have two connections to the radio in order to complete a circuit for electricity to move through. Yet some radios only have a telescoping antenna that has a single wire going to the circuit board. How and why does that work?

Best answer:

Answer by Violet W
You are correct that there need to be two paths, one in, one out for the electrons. Antennas with two wires typically are balanced antennas, such as a dipole antenna. Electrons move along one arm toward the receiver, through the receiver, and out along the the other arm. Then they reverse.

With a single connection, such as from a vertical antenna (a single conducting mast sticking up vertically), when electrons flow in to the receiver, they have to go somewhere. If the receiver is connected to earth via a wire, usually the receiver is set up so that those electrons flow into the earth. And on the other half of each cycle, the electrons flow out of the earth, through the receiver, and into the vertical antenna.

But what if there is no grounding connection to the earth? Radios work because they couple capacitively to the earth. It is a very weak connection, but sufficient for minute signals. The radio’s internal ground plane, to which the other end of the tuning coil is connected, acts as one plate of a parallel-plate capacitor. The earth forms the other plate. So electrons flowing into the coil flow onto the ground plane. That creates an electric field that interacts with the electrons in the earth, just as they do an any capacitor.

Often a one-wire antenna radio will receive better if a physical wired connection is made from the radio’s tuning coil (or ground plane) directly to the earth, or to a large piece of metal that couples to the earth (capacitively) even better than the radio does.

Back to the vertical antenna, it turns out that the earth is a ground plane that acts as a mirror for radio signals emitted by or received by a vertical antenna. Being a mirror, the earth acts virtually the same as if the vertical antenna had been a true dipole with two arms. The earth takes the place of the second arm. The ground plane of the earth typically is effectively at a depth of about 6 feet (2 meters), but it varies with soil conditions.

Electrons are conserved in the receiving process.

Depression & Anxiety – the Fibromyalgia Connection

Depression & Anxiety – the Fibromyalgia Connection

As Fibromyalgia (FM) sufferers we are often made to feel like our pain is “all in your head”, but research has consistently proven that Fibromyalgia is not a form of depression or hypochondria. IT IS REAL!  However, there is a connection between FM and other chronic pain conditions to depression and anxiety.  Treatment is important because both can make FM worse and interfere with symptom management.

There is some debate by medical and mental professionals about what causes what.  The “What came first?  The chicken or the egg” debate translates into “What came first?  The chronic pain or the depression?”  TRUE Fibromyalgia experts, researchers and others know that the chronic pain of FM & overlapping conditions leads to depression and anxiety. 

Fibromyalgia is a common condition in which a person suffers from chronic musculoskeletal pain. There are points called tender points, sometimes all over the body, and these tender and painful points are used as part of the diagnosis of FM. Individuals with FM may also be more susceptible to pain in general. Whenever the tender points are simply touched, they can send sharp pain impulses. Many Fibromyalgia sufferers experience pain all over and some experience pain only in specific regions. It can involve the muscles and the joints. Sometimes, there is so much pain that it is hard to pinpoint exactly where the pain originates.  Fibromyalgia is often accompanied by other overlapping conditions such as chronic myofascial pain (CMP), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), restless legs syndrome (RLS), migraine & tension headaches, interstitial cystitis (IC), mitral valve prolapse (MVP), cognitive dysfunction, depression, anxiety and more.  The symptoms of Fibromyalgia, alone, are wide-ranging and debilitating.  Do they really think that depression and anxiety is the CAUSE for ALL of the above?

Depression is a mental illness characterized by feelings of profound sadness and lack of interest in enjoyable activities. It is a constant low mood that interferes with the ability to function and appreciate things in life. It may cause a wide range of symptoms, both physical and emotional. It can last for weeks, months, or years. People with depression rarely recover without treatment and if you have Fibromyalgia, you may have to fight it for the rest of your life.

Anxiety is a normal state of apprehension, tension, and uneasiness in response to a real or perceived threat.  Although anxiety is considered a normal response to temporary periods of stress or uncertain situations, prolonged, intense, periods of anxiety may indicate an anxiety disorder. Other indicators of an anxiety disorder are anxiety that occurs without an external threat and anxiety that impairs daily functioning.

What can cause depression & anxiety?  Stressful life events, chronic stress, low self-esteem, imbalances in brain chemicals and hormones, lack of control over circumstances (helplessness and hopelessness), negative thought patterns and beliefs, chronic pain, chronic physical or mental illness, including thyroid disease & headaches can ALL cause both.  Little or no social  and familial support can be a main factor in depression for FM patients. Family history of depression & anxiety can also be a factor.

Lack of quality sleep is also believed to have an influence on depression.  Since FM & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients tend to have insomnia and/or other sleep disorders, it stands to reason that poor sleep can lead to depression.

There is a wide variety of medications, vitamins, minerals, herbs and therapies that can help ease the impact of pain, anxiety and depression.  With so many out there, you and your doctor may have to go through the process of trial and error to find what works best for you!

Exercise is not only good for FM, it is also highly beneficial for depression and anxiety.  Recent studies suggest exercise can change your brain chemistry. Exercising can boost your level of serotonin, a brain chemical that is effects mood and pain perception. It can also stimulate the production of endorphins, natural painkillers that can give you an overall feeling of well-being.

Exercise is a great for stress, too. It relieves muscle tension and it gets the heart rate up. The combination makes us more relaxed and alert, which helps us deal with our problems in a calmer and more controlled way.

There are several other methods you can use to combat stress, including: meditation, deep breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, mental imagery relaxation, relaxation to music, biofeedback, counseling – to help you recognize and release stress. 

You can learn more about this topic, medications, supplements, alternative therapies and more at my website AND I will be writing more articles – so check back here!

Erica Thompson is a 40-year-old, Stay-at-Home mom with 3 children and a husband in the military. She was diagnosed with FMS in 1995, but suffered from it many years prior to diagnosis and later, diagnosed with Myofascial Pain Syndrome. She has done extensive research and is an expert based on her own experience, her mother’s and her grandmother’s. Her goal is to educate as many people as she can about FMS and all that goes with it. Mostly, she just wants to make FMS sufferers’ lives better – even just a little bit.

Baseball On Radio In Greenville, Sc – Shoeless Joe Jackson Connection?

Baseball On Radio In Greenville, Sc – Shoeless Joe Jackson Connection?

In the 1950’s and 60’s I remember listening to Chicago White Sox games on radio regularly with my grandfather. He had an old tube style radio cabinet in the living room, and also owned a small transistor radio that he would use when sitting in the front yard. Listening to White Sox games isn’t particularly unique except that I was living in Greenville, South Carolina at the time. The  games were hosted on a small hometown radio station, WMRB-1490AM, located in downtown Greenville. As I grew older I sometimes wondered why would Chicago games broadcast into the Deep South?

My interest was rekindled in 2006 when an investor purchased and relocated the Shoeless Joe Jackson house located at 119 East Wilburn Street.  Unbeknownst to me, Jackson’s house was located just two blocks from where I attended Crestone Elementary School in 1958-60. Moreover, my grandpa and I lived less than one mile from East Wilburn Street. Jackson’s house eventually became the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum now located in downtown Greenville.  It was placed adjacent to the stadium that  hosts a Single-A Boston Red Sox affiliate, the Greenville Drive. Again, I asked myself as to why were White Sox games broadcast in my hometown. Was Shoeless Joe Jackson’s legacy connected to the broadcasts?  Were the broadcasts the result of a fan base that had developed around Shoeless Joe? The idea was both interesting and intriguing.

I begin my search by contacting the new owner of WMRB 1490AM radio. WMRB was purchased by Randy Mathena in 1987 and renamed WPCI. Randy was friendly and responsive to my queries but was unable to substantiate the White Sox broadcasts. I wrote a letter to the widow of the founder of WMRB, Frank Cope, but didn’t receive an answer. I found a research paper on the history of WPCI Radio written by some Furman University students. The paper was helpful in providing a general history of the

station, but it did not mention the Chicago White Sox broadcasts. I also contacted Arlene Marcley, the curator of the new Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum.  She allowed me to place a poster in the museum soliciting information but still no leads.

It was in early 2010 that I found a hint on Facebook. I had made a random posting to the Greenville, SC Facebook page and received a comment from a Greenville native. He believed that during the Textile Mill baseball league days, some mills adopted Major League teams.  My contact theorized that Brandon Mills, where Shoeless Joe got his start, may have adopted the Chicago White Sox. Were Chicago White Sox broadcasts the result of Shoeless Joe Jackson’s affiliation with the White Sox and his playing time with Brandon Mills of the Textile Baseball League? I was sure that I struck pay dirt.

A quick Google search steered me toward the book, “Textile League Baseball: South Carolina’s Mill Teams, 1880-1955” by Thomas K. Perry. I wrote Mr. Perry a letter about the theory and he responded with an email. Perry wrote, “After we moved away from Greenville, Dad would take me on fishing trips to Lake Hartwell. The cabin, owned by my great aunt and uncle, was wonderfully rustic, and had no television. During those spring evenings, we would listen to the White Sox games, and I was intrigued with the performances of Tommy John and his teammates. I remember asking Dad why a Greenville station would carry the Chicago games, and he said it was because Shoeless Joe played there years ago. Not an official explanation, I know, but Dad was raised on a mill village in Anderson, SC, so he knew the history of textile sports (he played basketball). I believe his explanation to be true, though I have no official documentation.”

Alas! Finally, I had confirmation that someone else had heard the broadcasts; but what of the purpose and their origin?  I thought Mr. Perry had just written a historical narrative on Textile Mill Leagues.  Surely, during all that research, if mill teams had adopted Major League teams, he would have found evidence of it. I went back to Randy Mathena of WPCI and shared with him Perry’s comments.  This reignited Randy’s interest and he gave me the telephone numbers for Jim Cope, son of former owner Frank

Cope, and retired WMRB disk jockey, Bill Krieger.  The hunt was on.

I first telephoned Mr. Bill Krieger who was now in his mid 80’s. We had a delightful conversation discussing the history of WMRB and the city of Greenville. He said Frank Cope purchased the 1490 AM radio station with the financial backing of the Simpson partner of Belk-Simpson Department Stores of Greenville.  Cope named the station WMRB taking the call letters from the phrase, “We Make Radio Better”.

Regarding sports broadcasts on the station, Krieger said WMRB was the host to South Carolina Gamecocks football. Frank Cope had also purchased the rights to broadcast “The Masters Golf Tournament” originating in Augusta, Georgia. He confirmed that WMRB became host to Chicago White Sox baseball broadcasts. Krieger said that Frank Cope and a local business associate from Household Finance brokered an arrangement with the Chicago White Sox organization. The corporate headquarters for Household Finance was located in Chicago and they were key sponsors on the White Sox Radio Network.  When I asked Krieger if he thought the White Sox broadcasts had anything to do with Shoeless Joe Jackson’s fame, he stated he had no recollection that Shoeless Joe’s popularity had anything to do with the broadcasts.  He believed it to be purely a business decision. He also went on to say that the Chicago White Sox broadcasts ended in the late 60’s and were eventually replaced with the Atlanta Braves in the early 1970’s.

I then called Jim Cope, the son of Frank Cope. Jim Cope told me was about 10 years old when his dad purchased the radio station.  He remembered the Chicago White Sox and Atlanta Braves radio broadcasts.  Without telling him the details of my previous interview with Bill Krieger, I asked Jim to give me the reasons why his father would broadcast Chicago White Sox games in Greenville.  Jim stated he had no details or knowledge of the conversations surrounding the reasons why the broadcasts got started. Cope did state that his dad would have based the decision solely on business and how it would benefit the station.  I asked Jim if it was possible that with Greenville being the home of Shoeless Joe Jackson, and given Shoeless Joe’s popularity, could that have been a factor in the decision? He stated he did not recall any discussions or an atmosphere of popularity of Shoeless Joe during that time.  Jim Cope did not believe Shoeless Joe had anything to do with his dad’s decision to bring the Sox to WMRB.

Fully armed with this new information, I began a web search to find a connection between Household Finance and Chicago White Sox.  I quickly found a blog entry by a Lee Abrams regarding play-by-play baseball and other chatter.  Abrams stated, “I remember the transistor under the covers. Bob Elson and Don Wells calling a Chicago White Sox night Game…every ad was for “Friendly Bob Adams” with Household Finance. They took you right there…an indescribable magic that combined tension, joy and a sense of security and warmth that said all is OK with life…especially since we have Hoyt Wilhelm warming up in the bullpen.” The Household Finance connection collaborated Bill Krieger’s 85 year old memory and the puzzle was now complete.  Shoeless Joe Jackson and the Chicago White Sox broadcasts in Greenville appeared to be nothing more than an amazing coincidence.

Feeling comfortable that I had run my investigation to the finish line, I sought to document the results of my research.  I produced a PowerPoint graphic depicting the history of radio frequency 1490AM WMRB, now WPCI.  After combining the graphic with the interviews and other source files, I sent them off to the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and the Greenville Historical Society.  Both agreed to catalog my research for posterity’s sake.  I also created a poster that now hangs on the wall of the Shoeless Joe

Jackson museum, and if you check out Wikipedia, you’ll find entries on the WPCI radio and Shoeless Joe Jackson pages. Finally, I framed my graphic and presented a copy to the owner of WPCI, Randy Mathena, where he proudly hung it on the studio wall in his radio station.

This was not a very romantic ending to my quest but it appeared to be the facts. Ironically, even though some local listeners falsely conjectured the Chicago White Sox broadcasts were the result of Shoeless Joe, this speculation may have inadvertently fueled Shoeless Joe’s popularity. I like the way Thomas Perry summarized this entire journey in an email: “Brandon Mill folks probably made the Joe Jackson/White Sox connection immediately as reason for the broadcasts. And in inimitable business fashion, the radio station would not have reason to stop this conjecture because it meant more loyal listeners. Rest assured, I ain’t giving up my memories of summer talks on the porch with my dad!”

And neither am I.
