How to Enhance and Secure Your Wi-Fi Network

Prioritize Your Packets

Then, choose High, Medium, Normal, or Low priority, and click the 'Add' button. You may want to set a low priority to things like BitTorrent and other download services, and give your VoIP service a high priority, for example. Note that the Linksys utility also lets you set the priority for specific voice devices, such as VoIP phones that connect directly to your network. Not all routers can prioritize particular applications or devices, but at the very least, turn QoS or WMM on, which automatically attempts to optimize media traffic; this setting is off by default on many routers.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
