  • List of Computer Accessories for UBC / Rits AEP Students Some advice from Sanjeev Kaushik, Rits Lab Manager
  • 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.
  • b. RJ45 Networking cable at least 6 feet (2 m) long
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • e. Memory Stick for Data Storage
  • 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.
