How to Enhance and Secure Your Wi-Fi Network

Optimize Wi-Fi for VoIP, Video, and Gaming

If your Skype or Second Life sessions start breaking up, or your iTunes stream gets clogged whenever your teenager starts playing World of Warcraft, you may be able to improve matters without having to buy a new router. Most routers sold in the last couple of years have a quality of service (QoS) feature, although you may need to update your router firmware to activate it. For example, the configuration program for Linksys routers has a QoS tab under 'Applications & Gaming' (first make sure 'WMM Support' is enabled, as in this screen shot).

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
