wifi-improvement


As one of the most popular ways to access the internet, WiFi is now used the world over by the public and various businesses. Also known as a wireless network, this innovative technology has paved the way for internet access as we know it, allowing multiple devices to connect to a network using radio signals.


However, it relies on devices being in a certain range, and sometimes this can cause weak or inconsistent connections, depending on how far any given device is from a router. As such, here are some useful ways to boost your WiFi.


Quality Router

 

First and foremost, you will want to make sure that you have a good router to help you access the internet. To this end, you may want to consider investing in an 802.11ac router, which is one of the best types of router currently on the market. They tend to have a much greater range and speed compared to some of the older Wireless G or Wireless N routers.


You may also want to consider using decent, durable parts to connect your router to your computer and the wall outlet. There are plenty of specialist suppliers like RS which stock quality cables which you can explore at your leisure.


Placing

 

Where you place your router will also make a fairly significant difference to its overall effectiveness. Given that WiFi relies on radio signals being transmitted cleanly, it is important that there are as few obstructions as possible when it comes to finding a home for it.


So, putting it inside a cupboard or in a box will weaken it, but leaving it in an open space (preferably on a wall mount) should help to strengthen the signal and improve performance. It is also good to have it in a central position in the house/building, so that each room has good coverage.  


Wireless Channel

 

Your router should automatically connect to the optimal channel, but some channels are more crowded than others, and sometimes there may be a better channel which is less crowded. Routers in surrounding buildings can interfere with your WiFi if they are on the same channel, so it is well worth looking into how you can look at which channel your router is using and switch it manually if necessary.  


This should help to strengthen your signal and prevent any degradation in the WiFi's signal, prolonging its shelf life.


These are just some of the many methods you can use to improve your WiFi. Be sure to find whatever works for your individual network and you should see a great improvement.   


a5-2017-october-patch


It's rather early for Galaxy devices to be receiving this month's security patch on most months, but not in October, as Samsung has just released the latest security update for the Galaxy A5 (2017) in India. Not that it was the first device in Samsung's arsenal to get October's update though, the Galaxy Note 9 already received the same patch earlier.


12 Critical Vulnerabilities or CVEs will be fixed by the update, alongside bringing in multiple other bug fixes and patches. As always, there are patches exclusive to Samsung devices (11 in total) included as well. In India, the firmware version sent via OTA is A520FXXU7CRID, so that's what you should be seeing if the update has indeed arrived on your phone. If you are reading this in any other region, don't worry, the same update will be released in your area too, and very soon at that.

mobile-gaming-2019


Game-changing technologies are sweeping every industry and gambling is no exception. One trend that has caught the eyes of the casinos worldwide is the massive surge in mobile gambling. Take a look at these numbers.


In 2016, the share of overall gambling worldwide was close to $400 billion. In contrast, online gambling's share reached $50 billion in 2017. This was an exponential jump within a time span of six years from $30 billion in 2011.


Let's take a look at the key trends sweeping the online gambling industry as well as the effect they are having on the mobile online casinos.


VR takes central stage


Ever since we got Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear, the VR technology is showing no signs of slowing down. Today's virtual reality casinos create an experience so close to the real land casino that it's hard to differentiate. You can find slots, blackjack, roulette and other specialty games complete with all the action, sound, music and lights. 


Slot Millions, one of the first VR casinos offered the slot game "Starburst," which has been a major hit with its outstanding graphics, immersive soundtrack. Even NetEnt dipped its toes in the VR world with "Jack's World," its hugely successful take on the classic slot game Jack and the Beanstalk as a foundation.


Nowadays players also can enjoy live streams that don't need high-profile investment and a combination of 3D graphics and 3D sound.


Cryptocurrencies

 

Cryptocurrencies have made landfall in the gambling world. Various benefits - anonymity, speed, tax-free status, security, and low fee - that comes with using a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin has attracted a lot of players.


It has got the attention of casinos with a lot of crypto coin casinos popping up. Perfect compatibility of cryptocurrencies as a payment method with all the mobile devices is further propping up cryptocurrency as an acceptable trend at all the best mobile casinos.


For example, 1xBit.com, an online multi-cryptocurrency-accepting casino has been widely regarded as a trendsetter. It offers unique software for placing sports bets and playing casino games from the top-providers. Players can easily bet on more than 50 sports.


Better user experience


Online casinos recorded an unprecedented profit (over $40 billion) last year with the advent of technologies like the IoT (Internet of Things). A rise in the connected devices has worked wonders for every industry today with an unbelievable amount of data analytics at the disposal of enterprises, and the gambling industry is also taking note.


Information gleaned from the analytics is being used to offer better user experiences for all the casino games on offer. Online and mobile casinos have an advantage over the land casinos as they can react instantly to every iota of data player give them like the choice of games, the length of time spent on each game, and the best time the players like to play.


That's how the developers of online slot games can decide what works better. Games with powerful supplementary video and audio content, branded stuff, or theme offerings?


More attention to safety & security


All this talk of technology hasn't left the safety and security aspect untouched. The industry is worth billions in the gambling industry with rising hacking attacks on the mobile casino sites.


Online casinos and mobile casinos are now increasingly deploying the latest SSL encryption techniques to layer the important financial and personal data. The RNG (Random Number Generator) technology is being used, which is as close to the universal laws of randomness, as you can get.


Phone providers offer increasingly sophisticated device fingerprinting fraud prevention solutions to identify users.


Also, banks have become vigilant when it comes to online and mobile payments. Then there are a host of regulatory bodies that exercise tight control over land as well as online casinos activities. This ensures that players get a fair deal and their information isn't tampered with.


Live casino games


Mobile gambling has latched on to the fascinating world of live casino games. Ever since the first roulette game was rolled out on the mobile platform, all the casinos worth their salt offer a varied range of mobile gaming solutions.


Microgaming introduced the live dealer games back in 2006. Today's live dealer casinos online offer an unparalleled experience in poker, casino, baccarat, roulette, and slots. Players get advanced socialization experience, which combined with a land-based casino atmosphere, is becoming popular.  The attractive bonuses and VIP programs are also proving to be a huge draw among players.


Conclusion


The coming years will see further growth in online gambling and more players in the market with sophisticated technology.


The key mobile gambling trends discussed should all be good for the player as vendors fight ruthlessly for their attention and more importantly, money.


There will be some winners, and there could be a lot of losers - we wouldn't like to make a bet on it!


proxy-server-android


Android enables its users to configure proxy settings for each individual Wi-Fi network they have stored on their device. Some networks, particularly corporate or educational facility networks, require users accessing them remotely to connect via a proxy or VPN.


When you connect to a network for which you have configured a proxy, any internet browser and app that support proxies on Android (of which Google's Chrome is one) will automatically route your internet traffic through the designated proxy.


Note that If you need to hide your IP address, or you are trying to circumvent local geo-blocking, you should use a VPN instead. When you use a VPN, all of your device's traffic is sent through it. However, in addition to the aforementioned circumstances in which a VPN is required, there are many users who prefer to use a VPN for a variety of reasons.


The Proxy Menu


The following method should work for all modern Android phones. Note that many manufacturers customize the look and feel of their phones OS, meaning that things might not appear exactly as described here.


To begin with, open your Android's Settings menu. Then tap the Wi-Fi option to bring up a list of networks. On many devices, this option will be tucked away in another menu, usually Connections. Check the top of your screen for a search bar while in the Settings menu. Searching for ‘Wi-Fi' on there should get you where you need to go.


Make sure that you are connected to the network that you want to configure and long-press (hold your finger on) the "Modify Network" option. From there, tap on the "Advanced options" section to expand it. Select the "Proxy" option and you should be presented with three options; "None", "Manual", and "Proxy Auto-Config". The automatic configuration option isn't available on all older versions of Android.


Configuring Your Proxy Automatically


Perhaps your organization may have provided you with a link to a configuration file to help you set up your proxy. These proxy auto-configuration scripts come in the form of a .PAC file. If you choose the "Proxy Auto-Config" option, you will be prompted to enter the address of the .PAC file.


Some networks offer auto-configuration through the Web Proxy Auto-discovery Protocol (WPAD). However, Android does not support this. You will therefore need a .PAC address in order to automatically configure the network. For WPAD networks, you will need to speak to the network administrator to find the .PAC address, or the manual settings that you need.


Manually Configuring the Proxy


After selecting the "Manual" option, you will see a list of settings appear at the bottom of the dialog box. This is where you need to enter the settings for your proxy; if you don't know what those are, you should speak to the administrator of the network you wish to connect to. Alternatively, if you are trying to connect through a residential proxies service that you have paid for yourself, you should be able to get the settings from their website or support staff.


In the "Proxy hostname" box you will need to enter either the hostname or the IP address of the proxy you want to connect to. Hostnames are in the format of "proxy.example.com", whereas IP addresses will be in the form of "xxx.xxx.x.xxx". Then, you will need to choose a port number you want to use when connecting to the proxy.


proxy-server-android-1



If there are any websites that you want to whitelist, exempting them from your proxy and telling Android to bypass the proxy when communicating with these addresses, you can enter them in the "Bypass proxy for" button at the bottom. If you want to add more than one address to the list, separate them with commas.


Once you have entered all your settings, press the save button and you're done! Each Wi-Fi network stored on your device has its own individual Wi-Fi settings, so enabling the proxy on one network will not automatically enable it on the others. You will need to re-enter the settings for every Wi-Fi network you wish to use the proxy with.


Wrapping Up


Configuring a proxy server on your Android device is simple and straightforward. It is worth asking your network administrator if they have an auto-configuration file that you can use. Not only is this faster, especially if you need to set up the proxy on multiple Wi-Fi networks, but if this file is ever changed or updated by the network administrator, your device will automatically use the new settings. If you manually configure your connection and have any issues, consult with your network administrator or proxy provider.
