While we’re packing your hardware, we identify where each piece is located in your current building and note where it will need to be placed in your future building. We then ship your hardware, unpack it, install it, and follow up with you to make sure it’s working properly.
What If I Need 24/7 IT Management? What Services Are Included?
NacSpace offers around-the-clock tech support – from data backup to cloud and firewall services – 365 days a year.
We proactively manage your desktops and laptops to ensure they run smoothly and your OSs and apps are up to date. For example, just because you install antivirus software does not mean it’s performing the way it should. NacSpace makes sure that antivirus definitions have been updated and that your Windows or other OS has the latest patches on it.
Third-party applications that aren’t updated by Microsoft such as Adobe apps and Google Chrome present a special risk. We work with you to develop a regular process for checking these apps, so your employees can focus on work instead of updating their software.
Then we follow up to make sure you aren’t experiencing any side effects. Perhaps a Microsoft patch sent to the latest version of Windows has a bug that shuts down your printers the next day. NacSpace knows which patches were applied, so we can roll those back and get your printers working quickly. Then we can reinstall the patch when Microsoft addresses the problem.
Along with repairs, NacSpace offers desktop and laptop upgrades. We can add memory, convert your standard hard drive to a solid-state drive (SSD), expand your networking capacity, and even supply you with display adapters when you’re ready to move to a bigger monitor.

why buy from ORIGIN PC?
If you’re searching for the cheapest Gaming PC made with inferior products and questionable quality, you might as well leave now. ORIGIN PC only uses the highest quality performance Gaming PC components available. Every single customized Gaming PC and Gaming Laptop is assembled right here in the United States by highly trained and incredibly skilled technicians and assembly engineers. Sure, we can assemble our award-winning Gaming PCs overseas for less. In fact, that’s what most of our competitors do. However, we choose to assemble all our Gaming PCs right here in the United States because it gives us the best control over manufacturing, performance, and overall quality. And we’re thrilled to hire only the best PC Builders in the country.
You see, at ORIGIN PC, our customers’ long-term satisfaction is the most important thing for us. We want our customers to be fully satisfied with their ownership experience from beginning to end. And not just satisfied within the first 90 days when everything is shiny and new, but very satisfied years later, even as new and more advanced gaming software is introduced. And if something happens to your PC years later, we don’t abandon you. We have a highly trained support team always available to help out our wonderful family of ORIGIN PC owners. Again. We’re committed to your long-term ownership experience.
To answer the original question, why should you buy a new Gaming Rig from ORIGIN PC? It’s the commitment to quality: That includes the best components, best technicians, best quality control, best support, and ultimately best performance that keeps our customers coming back to purchase again and again.
You can always pay less for an inferior Computer Tower or Laptop that was assembled in massive quantities by tired factory workers in a faraway country. And when it eventually breaks, you find out that your support has expired and the company will no longer stand behind the Gaming System you paid for. Ouch!
Of course, everyone prefers getting the best of the best. But we all know, quality, performance, and support costs more. However, that’s not entirely true. See, when you build the highest quality PCs with the highest quality components, a funny thing happens. We get less returns. We get less warranty claims. We get more repeat customers. That means, our prices are astonishingly very competitive for both our pre-built Gaming Computers and our Custom Built Gaming PCs.
In addition to pricing our computers competitively, we also provide a variety of payment and financing options to let you build the machine with the performance capabilities that you’ll need today and tomorrow. (Learn more about financing options for your next Gaming PC.)

How to connect a regular computer (PC) to a Wi-Fi network?
After installing a Wi-Fi router, many people have a question, how now to connect a regular desktop computer that does not have Wi-Fi to the Internet. Previously, the Internet was connected to the computer via cable, but now what to do? I do not really want to lay a network cable from the router to the computer. After all, we installed a router in order to get rid of the wires in the house.
Yes, after installing a router and setting up a Wi-Fi network at home or in the office, all laptops, tablets, phones and a number of other devices will be able to connect to the Wi-Fi network, “over the air”. These devices have a built-in Wi-Fi receiver. And if you also have a stationary computer to which you also need to connect the Internet, then there are only two options:
- Lay a network cable from the router to the desktop computer. But, this option is not often suitable, because you don’t always want to fiddle with cables, and sometimes it’s simply not possible to run this cable to a PC.
- Well, the second option, which we will talk about in this article, is connecting an external or internal Wi-Fi adapter to your computer. With it, a regular, stationary computer will be able to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi.
I encountered exactly the same situation at home. After installing the router, all devices connected wirelessly. But I connected the computer that I had to leave via Wi-Fi using a USB Wi-Fi receiver. It is about these receivers that I will now tell in more detail.
It turns out that you can use an Android phone or tablet as a Wi-Fi adapter. Most likely you have such a device. You can use this solution. At least temporarily.
One important point: if you have an extra Wi-Fi router that is idle, then you can try setting it up as a receiver. It will receive a Wi-Fi signal from your main router, and provide Internet via cable to a desktop computer. For example, ZyXEL routers do an excellent job with this work. I wrote about setting up such a function on ZyXEL in this article. Other routers can be configured in bridge mode.
With the help of a Wi-Fi adapter, which I will discuss below, you can distribute the Internet via Wi-Fi. For example, you have cable Internet connected to your PC. We connect an adapter to the computer, and it can distribute the Internet to other devices. How to set it all up, I wrote in a separate article: https://help-wifi.com/nastrojka-virtualnoj-wi-fi-seti/nastrojka-tochki-dostupa-cherez-wi-fi-adapter-na-pk-s -windows-10/
As I wrote above, for ordinary computers that do not have built-in wireless network receivers, there are a large number of network adapters on sale. These adapters are both external and internal. As for the prices, they are not very expensive. Of course, there are different models, from different manufacturers. But, the cheapest one will cost you about 6-7 dollars (these are devices from popular manufacturers). Tenda has inexpensive models. For example, I also have an inexpensive, external USB Wi-Fi adapter TP-LINK TL-WN721N. It looks like this:
Works great. You will need to prepare instructions for setting it up on a PC. By the way, many people call such adapters “flash drives for connecting to Wi-Fi” 🙂
How to choose a Wi-Fi adapter for your computer: external and internal
Let’s see what these adapters are, and how to choose such an adapter for your PC. So, they are external and internal.
Connected to the USB connector of the computer. To install it, you do not need to open the system unit, this is undoubtedly a plus. They look like ordinary flash drives. There are small ones, there are ones like in the picture above, and there are also antennas. I advise you to buy those with antennas if the Wi-Fi signal is not very strong in the room where you have a computer.
If you are not very computer savvy, I recommend buying an external Wi-Fi receiver. Almost anyone will do. The installation is not false: we connected the adapter to the USB connector of the computer, installed the drivers, and that’s it, you can connect to Wi-Fi.
Here, another photo of external adapters:
These devices have been dealt with. Go ahead.
These adapters plug into the PCI (or PCI Express) slot on your computer’s motherboard. It is clear that to install such an adapter, you need to disassemble the system unit. Installation is also not difficult at all. They removed the cover from the system unit, installed the adapter in the PCI slot, rebooted the computer, installed the driver, and that’s it.
Outside the system unit, an adapter antenna will peek out, or even several. This is all for the best reception. After all, if a regular USB receiver can be connected via an extension cable so that it would receive a signal better, then this will not work with an internal adapter.
This is what the internal PCI adapters look like:
What is the best adapter to buy to connect a regular computer to Wi-Fi? Yes, basically, what’s the difference. But, for some reason it seems to me that external USB adapters are more convenient and practical. They can be easily connected to another computer. The connection and installation process is a little easier.
As you can see, connecting a desktop computer to a Wi-Fi network is not at all difficult. But, you can get rid of the wires. This is especially true if the router is far from the computer.
How to use MetaMask | Binance Academy
Why do I need to read this article?
If you are interested in the Ethereum ecosystem, you need an application like MetaMask. This extension is much more than just a wallet, MetaMask allows you to interact with sites that support integration with Ethereum.
MetaMask will allow you to connect to decentralized applications (DApps) directly from the browser (or through a mobile application). You can make transactions without intermediaries and play various games with completely transparent source code (so you can be sure that you have not been scammed).
Check out the manual to get started with the extension!
The creation of Ethereum was marked by the promise of a distributed Internet – the long-awaited Web 3.0. This is a space characterized by the absence of single points of failure, true ownership of data, and the presence of decentralized applications (DApps).
The infrastructure under construction is steadily converging with a focus on decentralized finance (DeFi) and interoperability protocols that aim to connect different blockchains. Now you can exchange tokens and cryptocurrencies, take crypto loans, and even use Bitcoin on the Ethereum network.
For many Ethereum network enthusiasts, MetaMask is the ideal wallet. Unlike smartphone or desktop software, the wallet is available as a browser extension where users directly interact with supported web pages. In this article, we will explain how MetaMask works and how to get started with it.
MetaMask is an open source Ethereum wallet that supports all kinds of Ethereum-based tokens (such as ERC-20 tokens and non-fungible tokens, also known as NFTs). In addition, you can receive them from other network users or buy / exchange them using the built-in integration with Coinbase and ShapeShift.
A distinctive feature of MetaMask is that the extension can interact with other websites. When using other wallets, you need to copy and paste the payment address or scan the QR code on a separate device. With the MetaMask extension, the site will simply send a request to the wallet and you will be prompted to accept or decline the transaction.
MetaMask can serve as an ordinary cryptocurrency wallet, but its main advantage lies in its flawless interaction with smart contracts and decentralized applications. Let’s learn how to create a wallet.
MetaMask wallet can be installed in Google Chrome, Firefox and Brave browsers. It is also available for iOS and Android, but we won’t stop there now. In this tutorial, we’ll be using Firefox, but no matter what browser you’re using, the steps are pretty much the same.
Go to the official metamask.io download page. Select your browser, then you will be redirected to the Chrome Web Store or the Firefox add-ons site. Click the install extension button. You may need to grant it some permissions before running it. Make sure that you are satisfied with the requirements for accessing the browser – if so, then go ahead.
You should see a welcome message.
Like us, you probably played with this cute fox for a long time before you started working with the extension.
When you’re done teasing the fox on the welcome page, click “Start” . Here you will be prompted to either import a seed phrase or create a new one. Click “Create Wallet” . On the next page, you’ll be asked if you’d like to send anonymous data to the developers to help improve the app. Choose the option you like best.
Back up your seed phrase!
This point is so important that it deserves its own subheading. MetaMask is a non-custodial service, which means that no one else can access your funds – not even the developers of MetaMask. It can be said that your tokens exist in the browser’s encrypted storage, which is password protected. This means that if your computer is lost, stolen or destroyed, you will not be able to recover your wallet. Your private keys will be forever lost in the void of cyberspace.
Therefore, it is extremely important to write down a backup phrase. This is the only way to recover your account if something happens. We recommend that you write down the words and store them in two or three different places. Not necessarily put them in a fireproof safe and bury them in a deep forest, but it won’t be superfluous.
To view the phrase, click on the gray field.
In case you went to the next page and did not complete the previous step, the program will ask you to confirm the phrase. If you haven’t saved the phrase, press “Back” and write down !
Confirm the phrase and proceed to the next step. Click “You’re done” and you will see the wallet interface.
The boring part is over, now let’s get some money (in the testnet).
In this tutorial, we will use the Ropsten testnet. This network functions much like the real Ethereum network, but its coins have no value. They come in handy when you’re designing contracts and want to make sure they don’t have vulnerabilities that would allow attackers to transfer $50 million to themselves. Every step we take on this network can be played on a real device (unfortunately except for the part where they give us free ether).
To connect to the Ropsten test network, click Main Ethereum Network in the upper right corner and select Ropsten Test Network .
Ethereum has many testnets. You can learn about their differences from this comparison.
We will use a faucet to get test funds for the game. To receive funds, visit this page in a browser that has MetaMask installed.
Hooray! Free money!
To display a pop-up window with your MetaMask account information, you can click on the little fox icon at any time (as in the GIF image above). Hover over Account 1 and click to copy your Ethereum address to your clipboard. Paste it into the form and click “Send me a test broadcast” .
Normally, Ethereum transactions are confirmed fairly quickly, but it may take some time before 1 ETH reaches your wallet. You can check the receipt of assets by clicking on the fox in the toolbar.
As soon as the funds are transferred, we can start working with DApps.
Because we’re on a testnet, we don’t have a lot of apps to interact with. A full list of mainnet dapps can be found at State of the DApps or Dappradar. You can play games, buy unique assets or bet on prediction markets.
We will be using the DApp we demonstrated earlier. Uniswap is a decentralized exchange (DEX) where you can place trades without relying on intermediaries. The mechanisms behind it are quite elegant – you can read about them in the article What is Uniswap and how it works.
You can access Uniswap here. In the upper right corner you should see the request “Connect to wallet” . Such a request will appear on all MetaMask compatible sites, since the extension is not automatically connected for security reasons. Click on it and you will be prompted to select a wallet. If you were not redirected to another page, then this wallet will be MetaMask.
The first time a site tries to connect, a MetaMask dialog will appear asking you to confirm the action. Here you can select an account (we only have one for now, so leave it as it is) and then see what permissions you’re going to grant the site. In this case, as in many others, the site asks for information about the wallet address of your account.
MetaMask and privacy
It’s important to be aware of the information you provide to sites. If the site knows your address, it can track all incoming and outgoing transactions with ether and tokens. Moreover, an address on the Ethereum network can be mapped to your IP address.
Some choose to separate their addresses to prevent any overlap, while others don’t care about the risks (the blockchain is public, after all). The level of privacy you want to achieve is ultimately up to you. General rule: do not give access to your data sites that you do not trust.
Exchange ETH for DAI
Time to make our first exchange. We will make an exchange with DAI stablecoin, an ERC-20 token. However, like our Ethereum, this DAI has no real value. Click “Select Token” , add the default Uniswap list , and then click “DAI” . Alternatively, you can choose WETH (wrapped ether).
Now all that’s left is to enter the amount of ETH we want to exchange. After entering, you will see the amount of DAI you should receive. Ready! Press “Exchange” .
Complete the exchange using MetaMask.
Then you will be prompted again to confirm the action with MetaMask. In this case, you need to confirm the transaction before creating it. When you do this on the mainnet, make sure the fee is acceptable to you as it can be high. The commission depends on the current state of the network.
After that, we need to wait for the confirmation of the transaction.
➟ Do you want to start using cryptocurrency? Buy ETH on Binance!
Where are my tokens stored?
So, your ether is gone, but new tokens are not displayed in your account. Don’t panic – you need to add them manually.
If these are popular tokens, select Add Token and search by name or ticker. If you exchanged less popular ones (or those that are in the test network), then you need to manually add contract address is an identifier that tells MetaMask where to look for our balance.
- Open the wallet by clicking on the extension.
- Click on the three dots in the top bar.
- Select “View on Etherscan” .
- In section “Overview” click on the drop-down list “Token” and select DAI.
- In section “Profile Summary” , you should see the address of the contract. Copy the address by hovering over it.
- Go back to MetaMask and press “Add token” .
- Click on the User Token tab .
- Paste the copied address into the form “Token contract address” .
- The rest of the fields should be filled in automatically. Click “Next” , then “Add Tokens” .
- Return to the main screen to view the full balance.
Congratulations! You just used your first DApp, securely trading Ether for DAI. Everything you’ve learned can now be done on the real web. When you’re ready to use the main network apps, don’t forget to switch from Ropsten to the main network.
MetaMask has other useful features that we haven’t discussed here. You can connect a hardware wallet (both Trezor and Ledger are supported), create a contact list and, of course, receive and send funds just like a regular wallet. You can customize the extension to suit your needs.
Beyond that, the usual security principles apply: MetaMask is a hot wallet, which means it runs on a device connected to the internet. This puts you at greater risk than using a cold wallet that is offline in order to minimize the surface of attack vectors.
Finally, when using MetaMask, you must be aware of which sites you are granting access to.
The MetaMask app for Android/iPhone is a convenient solution for interacting with Web3 applications inside your smartphone. Sharing most of the same functionality as the extension, the app has a built-in DApp browser, so you can access various decentralized applications with a single tap.
Application browser inside MetaMask.
Using the application is very similar to working with a browser extension.
