Windows 11 is Coming
October 5th 2021
Windows 11 releases for PC on October 5th. Unlike Windows 10, machine compatibility is considerably more strict than in previous versions.
Windows 11 devices must use modern device drivers which have passed the Windows Hardware Compatibility Program for Windows 11 or the latest available modern device drivers based on Declarative, Componentized, Hardware Support Apps (DCH) design principles.
Essentially machines with processors over 2 years old as of this date are not guaranteed automatic upgrades or compatibility.
However there are methods to still be able to officially upgrade these machines.

Wi-Fi 6 is Here!
Wi-Fi 6 is the new standard. We can upgrade your network to take full advantage of the new technology. Many devices are already supporting Wi-Fi 6, for example iPhones since the iPhone 11 fully support this standard plus many more.
How Is Wi-Fi 6 Different?
Wi-Fi 6 is a substantial upgrade over previous generations, though the differences may not seem immediately obvious to the average user. These changes might not dramatically change the way we use wireless routers or wireless networking but instead consist of many incremental improvements that stack up to be a substantial upgrade.
The first big change is that Wi-Fi 6 allows for potentially faster connection speeds.
Faster Wi-Fi means better upload and download speeds (or throughput) due to the increased bandwidth afforded by Wi-Fi 6. This is becoming increasingly important as file sizes continue to increase, along with the higher data demands of streaming high-quality video and communication-heavy online gaming. Playing a multiplayer game while also streaming to Twitch requires large amounts of bandwidth and a reliable and stable connection.
Is it Time to Upgrade Your Wi-Fi?
Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E will have a dramatic impact on the way we interact with our wireless devices. Between the faster speeds, better traffic prioritization, and added security, Wi-Fi 6 is a significant step forward in wireless network technology.
Whether you’re gaming, working, or just streaming video, upgrading to Wi-Fi 6 is worth considering.
