Add a Windows 7 Computer to a network using WPS

If your router supports Windows Connect Now (WCN), or Wi‑Fi Protected Setup (WPS), you can add a computer to the network by following these steps:
  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (Picture of the wireless network icon or Picture of the wired network icon) in the notification area.
    A list of networks currently available is displayed.
  3. Click your network, and then click Connect.

Samsung Galaxy Note III to have a 5.9 Inch Display?

Samsung Galaxy Note III, successor of the popular Galaxy Note II ”phablet” device was said to come out with a big 5.9″ display. Now, an executive from one of the main parts suppliers for the company has confirmed the screen huge size.

According to a report from Korea Times, the next generation Note Phablet will launch in the United States as confirmed by the local suppliers. The phone will most likely sport the new 8 core processor in all the units as the new processors become more readily available.

Samsung Galaxy Note III is also rumored to sport the latest OLED technology for the display, which is expected to offer a full HD resolution.

The successor of the Galaxy Note II is expected by the end of August, falling in line with the IFA 2013 premieres, but Samsung most probably will chose to skip the show and hold its own Unpacked (Episode 2) event in the US as it did for the Galaxy S4 – which was Episode 1.

Compaq CQ58-BF9WM Windows 7 Drivers

After Windows 8 was launched, and I realized my current notebook computer was going on 7 years of age.  I figured that I might go ahead and buy a new computer to replace it.  Well, I found a Compaq CQ58-bf9wm on sale at Wal-Mart on Black Friday for about $180.  I stood in line for 4 hours to get one and couldn't wait to get it home and try out Win 8.  After dabbling around I realized it just did not work well with this PC.  It would stop typing and the cursor would change places by itself at times.  So I decided to turn it back to Windows 7 Ultimate, I just needed to find the drivers.  After searching the HP site for this model it only shows the option for Windows 8 drivers download so I found a workaround knowing that windows Usually finds the correct drivers during windows updates. So I searched for the wireless driver for windows 7 for the following devices:

Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Ralink RT3592 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Ralink RT3090 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Ralink RT5390R 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Ralink RT3290 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter

The driver I found was SP58586 which came out for earlier CQ58's running Win 7 and supporting Ralink adapters.  I installed this driver and this gave me WiFi access to start the Windows 7 Updates.  Once Windows 7 starting updating it found the rest of the drivers that I needed for the LAN and for the AMD Graphics Processor. Once this was done updating all my drivers were correct and working properly.  Below I have provided a link to the driver to get you started on your way to having Windows 7 on your CQ58-bf9wm notebook and get rid of the annoying Windows 8.
