COURSE ENROLLMENT- Enrollment for this course is limited to 8 students.
COURSE LOCATION - Silicon room at the HOA2 Arts and Crafts Center.
COURSE PREREQUISITES - Intermediate computer skills, PC & Mac users.
COURSE DESCRIPTION – One 1.5-hour session. You may have an existing home network or paid someone to set it up for you but now something (router, printer, TV, or computer) is not working or connecting to the internet, and it will cost $100 or more to attempt a fix. You may have lost your internet connection and dread calling your ISP or service provider and spend hours on the phone trying to fix the problem. This hands-on course will allow you to follow a few steps and isolate your problem in minutes using diagnostic tools built into Windows. This is a hands-on class, and we will be configuring routers, working with batch files, and testing internet and network connections including the printer and other devices.
You will also learn some of the basic terminology used in networking. I will provide tips on computer and wireless router security. If you are a Mac user, you will get some instructions on how to use the Terminal app to test your IP addresses.
COURSE MATERIALS - The student should have a personal Flash or Jump drive for transporting files between the classroom and home. You will be using the classroom windows PCs.
