  15. List of Computer Accessories for UBC / Rits AEP StudentsSome advice fromSanjeev Kaushik,Rits Lab Manager

  16. a. Windows or Mac Restore / Operating System disk. • This can be Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Mac OSX. This is one of the easiest and quickest fixes for software problems. • Note: Order a disk for yourself if your new system did not come with one.

  17. b. RJ45 Networking cable at least 6 feet (2 m) long

  18. c. Wireless Networking Key or Adapter • If the laptop does not have a built-in wireless adapter then purchase a Wireless Networking Key or adapter. • The brand name should be Linksys, and of 802.11G standard. If you cannot purchase the key in Japan, then the UBC / Rits AEP Lab Manager can purchase it for you for the market price. No other brands can be supported by our Lab.

  19. d. CD/ DVD Drives • If your laptop does not have an internal CD / DVD drive then purchase an external one and make sure it works with your system.

  20. e. Memory Stick for Data Storage

  21. f. Old Computers? • Please do not bring an old laptop or computer with you as they tend to fail a lot, and also can not run the applications required in the courses.
