Facing Connection Issues With Tata Photon & Increase Lower Speed

I have received many comments on my previous tutorial Tata Photon Plus review and most of them are related to Photon connection issues and frequent disconnections from Internet. Majority of Tata Photon users are satisfied with the Internet connection speed and services but some users are not. This article covers the major reasons for getting slower connection speed from  products like Tata Photon Plus, Whiz, Photon 3G,  3G+ and Photon Max. In addition to the speed issues, some users get the error connection terminated when they connect Internet using  USB modem. Some users get other error messages with error codes like error 633, error 769, error 777, error 718 etc.

Reasons For Tata Photon Connection Issues
  1. No Coverage at Your area

  2. Having Obstacles like Buildings, Thick Walls etc

  3. Too many users at your area

  4. DNS Issues cut down the speed

  5. Issues on your computer like software conflicts, compatibility issues etc

  6. Long distance between you and Tata  tower

Getting Lower Speed From Tata Photon Max

Some users complain about getting lower speed from Tata Photon Max and Plus services. Even they says, Tata Max users might get minimum of 512 kbps and Photon Plus users must get minimum 256 kbps. It is valid for users with unlimited plan even after completing their speed booster plan. For example if the speed booster of an unlimited user is 5GB, he will get a speed of 256kbps for Photon Plus and 512 kbps for Max service. So to troubleshoot the lower speed from them, follow the steps below.
  1. Check whether your Speed Booster Pack is reached. If yes you will get slower connection.

How to Check If NAT Feature Failed On Router

Two essential features of a Small Office router is NAT and DHCP feature. NAT (Network Address Translation) feature converts single public IP address from Modem in to a number of private IP addresses and helps multiple computers connected to the router to access Internet. Yesterday one friend called me to check his LAN because only one computer connected to the router was able to access Internet. The reason for other computers failed to access Internet was the NAT failure on his Router. NAT feature on his router is no longer working and  it is no longer converting Public IP address provided from ISP to private IP addresses. All the computers in the LAN are getting unique IP addresses because of the DHCP feature but no more sharing of Internet connection.It can be tricky for an average user when all the computers are getting valid private IP address but just one computer is getting Internet access.


Verify Whether NAT Feature is Damaged On a Router

As I said before, it is difficult for a person who doesn't know basic networking to find the real reason if all computers are properly connected to the network and getting proper private IP address. If you are not an expert in networking, just check these two points to find whether Network Address Translation is working. Take your time to check these two facts on your LAN.
  1. Only one Device connected to the network can access Internet

  2. Getting Public IP address on Device which access Internet in LAN
In this case you can verify NAT is not working.

Troubleshoot If NAT is Not Working

There are some steps to check whether we can recover Network Address Translation feature back.
  1. Ensure that your router is not in bridge mode

  2. Login to setup page and ensure checkbox near NAT is checked

  3. Reset and Reconfigure the router
If still your router shows Network Address Translation issues, it is the time to replace your router. Having configure modem/router in bridge mode disable NAT feature. In bridge mode, the IP address modem receives transfer to the computer connected to the modem(with routing feature) without changing. To configure a modem in PPPoE mode or in bridge mode, follow the instructions provided in the link below.

What are the Advanatges of USB 3.0 Over USB 2.0 Devices

We cannot think about a computer without having USB(Universal Serial Bus) ports because of the nonparallel use of them. Age of USB 2.0 is over and most of the computer systems and devices have started migrating to USB 3.0 standard. Though both standards are backward compatible, USB 3.0 connector is physically different from 2.0 connector due to additional pins. We can connect a Universal Serial Bus 3.0 device with  2.0 connector but then you can expect only Universal Serial Bus 2.0 performance. Here let us check the major advantages of USB 3.0 over USB 2.0 devices. Major advantages of 3.0 version over  2.0 are higher speed, better Power efficiency, better data buffering etc. Let us check the differences between these two standards one by one.

Differences Between USB 3.0 and USB 2.0

  1. Speed Difference Between USB 3.0 and USB 2.0

    Universal Serial Bus 3.0 is very much faster than  2.0. Data transfer speed of Universal Serial Bus 3.0 is about 4.8Gbps compared to 480 Mbps data transfer speed in 2.0 standard. So by comparing the difference in data transfer speed, we must say  3.0 is ten times faster than  2.0.

  2. Power Saving in USB 3.0 and USB 2.o Standards

    Power management of USB 3.0 is considerably better than in  2.0 standard. Universal Serial Bus 3.0 standard is capable to save energy when the system is in idle state. Technically speaking  2.0 uses power up to 500 mA and USB 3.0 uses up to 900 mA but the power efficiency of  3.0  standard is better than that in 2.0 standard.

  3. Duplex Settings in USB 3.0 and  2.0

    USB 2.0 devices can only handle one way traffic(half duplex) where  3.0 is able to send and receive data simultaneously(full duplex).

  4. Number of pins in USB 3.0 connector

    We cannot use USB 3.0 connector to connect 2.0 devices though the reverse is possible. It is because of the additional pins in Universal Serial Bus 3.0 connector. There are nine wires in Universal Serial Bus 3.0 connector cable and it is bigger compared to four wire  2.0 connector cable. USB 3.0 connector is physically bigger than  that of Universal Serial Bus 2.0 .

  5. Connector Colors Difference

    We can identify USB 2.0 connector and USB 3.0 connector by checking the color.  3.0 connector is big and blue where  2.0 connector is grey colored.
Here you have read the major differences between these two standards. We have seen the advantages of migrating from  2.0 to  3.0 standard. In case if you want to prevent users connecting Universal Serial Bus devices on your computer, just follow the instructions provided in the link below.

Manually Sorting Emails In Gmail To Appropriate Tabs By Moving

With the new Gmail user interface, users are blessed with the auto-allocation of emails(according to the nature and sender) under appropriate tabs by Gmail. With the introduction of three tabs (with two additional disabled tabs)and automatic placement of emails under those tabs are very useful for Gmail users to select the important emails without opening them. All personal and important emails will come under primary tab and Social updates like Facebook, Twitter etc will come under Social and all promotional and ads comes under Promotion tab. We can always enable other two disabled tabs -updates and forums. I really like the new look and the user-interface provided by Gmail.
move


Now let us consider a scenario where automatic placement of emails by Gmail is not according to our taste. What can we do in this scenario ? Fortunately Gmail allows users to manually sort them under preferred tabs by moving each one with an option to follow the same settings for future too. Let us check how to do it.


Manually Put Emails From One Address Under Correct Tab

This step is required only if you feel the automatic allocation of emails by Google is not correct and you want to put every future electronic mails under correct tab.
  1. Right click on the email you want to move
    Promotions or Social category

  2. Select the option Move to tab and click the right tab from the menu.

  3. You will see a popup which let you set the current setting for future too.
    Make

    Click on Yes if you want to set the current settings valid for future too. By clicking Undo, you can reverse the change.

If you do not click Yes in this message, emails from the same address in future will not follow your current manual change. So if you want the future emails from the same sender comes under the tab you have manually set, you should click on Yes. As the part of forwarded mails from your friends you may receive so many with pictures. In case if you want to check the source of the images you have received in Gmail, visit the link below.
