So it's your first LAN, not sure what to expect? Well here's some tips on how to prepare for an upcoming LAN so you can make the most of your time at the event.
Firstly, before even contemplating connecting your computer to a LAN, you should always ensure your computer has antivirus software installed. This software will use 'virus definitions' to identify and protect your computer from infection. Therefore these definitions must be current to be effective, preferably updated no more than 1 or 2 days before the LAN. In addition to this it is important to have the current Windows updates installed to ensure there are no potential security leaks through which a virus could enter your system.
