4 Computer Tech Tips

Group: Computer Tech


Topic: Computer Tech

1. Is your IP blacklisted?

How to check if your IP address is blacklisted:

Go to http://www.mxtoolbox.com/ and enter in the IP Address of your outgoing IP address. 






Topic: DHCP

2. MS DHCP Preferred Over SOHO Devices

It is better to install a Microsoft DHCP server in your business network over the more limited DHCP servers provided by SOHO devices such as those found in wireless routers, firewalls, the Comcast router, etc. Installing a Microsoft DHCP server allows you to take advantage of more advanced features.






Topic: DNS

3. Fast, Free DNS Servers

The best free and fast DNS server service provider is OpenDNS. At least that's who we are currently using and recommending.

OpenDNS free dns server list:

  • 208.67.222.222
  • 208.67.220.220

If you wish to try others, search for free fast Public DNS Servers List.






Topic: Wireless Networking

4. Weak Wireless Signal

If you have a USB wireless device such as a wireless NIC, mouse controller, etc. that has a weak signal because of location, try adding a USB extension cable and placing the device in a more open location.

USB cables from stores such as Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc. are over priced 5 or 6 times what you can get on the internet.

For wireless network cards, you can also buy a range-extending antenna for the computer's WiFi card or router, or a wireless range extender.
