Show Post Summaries on Blogger Blog Home Page

Just like what we see in WordPress blogs, the blogger also supports showing summaries of published posts on the home page with"read more" links to the original post. When I started blogging, I was confused whether I should show multiple posts on the home page or single post. That time Blogger had not introduced the "After the Jump" feature. So showing multiple articles on the home page was not a good idea at that time. The jump feature lets you display the summary (or the first paragraph) of published articles on the home page. The major benefit of this feature is the nonrequirement to change any HTML changes by yourself. All you need to do is, just select the position of jump in the text editor (in content) and the article part till that jump will be shown in the home page. To read content after this jump position, the reader should click on "read more" link displayed below the summary.

How to Enable Flow Control on Network Adapter

In some Network Adapter and Connection related troubleshooting we need to either enable or disable flow control property of the adapter. This article is a supporting article for our other network troubleshooting guides. Before going to the steps to change the flow control property of the adapter, let us define what is flow control. If a Network Adapter receives input frames more than it can handle, without flow control enabled option, you may witness frame loss/ packet drop. It is because the sender is not getting information about the possible frame loss and it will not stop sending packets. With flow control enabled option, your Network Adapter will be able to send pause frame which tells the sender (sender of frames to our NIC) to pause the transmission until its buffer is free. So if your NIC is not a high speed one, while connecting to a high-speed network, you may need to enable Flow Control property to avoid packet loss.

Backward Compatibility Check Of 802.11a/b/g with 802.11n

Today I received an email from one of my blog reader asking if Wireless G Router is backward compatible with wireless N Access Point. He is planning to purchase a new IEEE802.11n Access Point to expand his home network. Right now he is using IEEE802.11 G router but it is unable to transmit signals to his computers situated at different floor.

My Android Phone Boots in Safe Mode

A few days ago I rebooted my Android phone and after that, I see a label "Safe Mode" on the left-hand bottom corner of the screen. After reboot, it starts operating in safe mode but I never noticed an option to select safe mode while rebooting the device as we have in the desktop computer.

Ping Request Could not Find Host. Please Check the Name and Try again

If your computer faces any DNS related issues, one of the major Ping error code you may receive while ping to any domain name is Ping request could not find host [website Name]. Please check the name and try again. This error message says your computer could not find the domain name because it failed to resolve the hostname to IP address.
