hi, im really quite ignorant when it comes to most things wireless and i need a bit of help.
at my college there is wired broadband internet (i believe) and i would like to turn this into a wireless network in a certain part of the college. i have seen it done before by connecting the broadband cable into a router or access point or something like that, im just not sure how. its also something i would like to disconnect at the end of every day, not anything perminent. this probably is very simple but i dont know much. thank you very much for any help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
