I’ve been deemed a “computer guy” by my parents and friends simply because I know how to re-install Windows, add RAM, and use the T-Bird RSS feed reader. Being a computer guy means that I’m a free 24 hour help desk.
Pure Networks has a solution to most of my family’s problems, which eventually turn into my problems. I got a chance to see it working in action at the Connections Conference held in Burlingame [read: San Francisco Airport area]. Install the Network Magic program on each PC in your house, and start networking. The program does what windows should do, makes networking computers easy.
Share printers, see who’s online, restrict little Timmy’s computer until he has finished his homework, see if the router is the reason for a lost connection or if it’s your wireless signal. One of the questions I get asked the most is “how do I know if someone’s stealing my wireless internet”, Network Magic will tell you. Stay tuned as there is a very high possibility that LIVEdigitally will produce a full review on this in the near future!
**Sorry Mac fans, this is only available for the PC. But then again, Macs network easily without 3rd party help!
