OK so if your interested in the back story read my last post hear in computer help...
My uncle has still been unable to find an affordable competent company that he feels is big enough to give him the support he needs and wont go with a one man show after what just happened to him...
he needs remote access to just 1 workstation his and ofcourse the ability to access the server which i assume if he gets to his station he should be able to remote to his station he should be able to log in as normal which would give him all normal permissions and rights....
so here is the kicker his previous I.T . guy already used every free software to give himself and a few users access... after they find out its a business they shut him right down so i convinced him to purchase software... went with RADMIN because when i did a search it came up in the top ten and price was affordable.. how they are in the top 10 i will never know.. i installed it took all the steps and it works when both his laptop and workstation are on the LAN
but as soon as we unplug laptop its no cigar...SO ofcourse i try support...no support phone number only one for sales.. so i submit a ticket..i get an email telling me for support i need to look for a person on skype.. the name was wrong but from the radmin forums i found a mod with a close name so i
looked him up ..his profile pick is a shirtless man doing yoga... needless to say i will be trying to get my uncle a refund..
i also tried to post some reviews to give other people a warning.. i have no idea how they managed to get the software on so many sites so highly rated..
ok without going any further into the story because i probably lost anyone that was willing to help by now anyway..
he has a sonicwall firewall is there anyway i can get him access and can someone walk me thru ...im sure there is away to create a VPN or something where he can just put his IP address into explorer,chrome,firefox get his desktop and log in ..i know the server has rdp and other options but i wouldnt know where to begin trying to set that up. I am looking for the simplest way possible for both him but mainly me ...please if anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it..
thanks again... i have been a member since 2010 but haven't spent much time recently i think all the doom and gloom started to make me a little nuts.

Don't throw out your old 802.11g gear just yet. Though 802.11n provides faster speeds and longer range, your aged legacy equipment can still serve a purpose.
As we'll discuss in this tutorial, old wireless routers can be turned into access points (APs); they can help increase the Wi-Fi footprint even more. Plus they might even help increase the performance of the 802.11n connections on your network.
how they are in the top 10 i will never know..
