A sutible system for a receptionist
A receptionist will need a basic computer system with high security levels passwords on folders anti virus hardware that you pay for because a receptionist has lots of personal details at there figure tips and if some one was to hack in to the system they could delete any folder or even take that folder but if you payed for virus protection hardware you shouldn't have that problem unless the antivirus hardware company went down then you need to be extra carful that's why it is best to put passwords on folders and documents.
I would recommend these components listed below
you want these components because a receptionist only need's a basic system that runs quietly has cheap components so there easier to replace and the system will also have to be low powered so its cheaper for the company to run this computer system.
Recommended network topology and type (client server / peer to peer) and specific network components.
How will the recruitment agency use the network to manage its resources.
Network problems sometimes happen without any prior warning, which leads many people to think that it is a difficult issue that is tricky to fix. Luckily, the majority of common network problems are fairly simple to troubleshoot (trace and correct faults) as most issues are connected to one of several common factors.
Below are descriptions and quick fixes for each of the common problems with networks and connections.
It is possible for electrical interference to occur between non-shielded cables and electrical devices, such as wireless routers. Electrical disruptions, or noise, given off by the cables and devices sometimes interfere with each other and cause a disruption in network service due to the complications associated with the electrical noise. Try to move your router to another location and separate your cables to reduce the electrical interference.
The first level of troubleshooting is always verifying that all your physical connections are intact, plugged in and working. When experiencing network issues, it is important to check all connections to and from your computer system, router and modem. Ensure that all connections are properly seated and that indicator lights are working properly. If you suspect that one of your cables is faulty, replace it with an identical one and retest your network connection.
Improperly Configured Settings
When a router is first set up, there is a series of settings and controls that need to be configured properly in order for the network to run smoothly. It is possible to experience network issues if one of the settings was mistakenly changed or altered by an outside program. Locate your router's configuration page, and verify that all settings are set to their recommended options. Contact the manufacturer if you are unsure of the correct settings.
Many self-installed applications use a portion of the network bandwidth in order to operate and transfer information over the network. Some of these applications are resource heavy and use a large chunk of the bandwidth, which slows down the network. It is also possible for applications to conflict with each other and cause network issues. Check your network manager to ensure that no applications are using too many system resources, and close out the ones that are.
Network problems are attributed to a variety of common issues. Do your research to find the best information for the network problem you are facing.
Open Source - Open source software is software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement by anyone. for an example Wikipedia . The source code is the part of software that most computer users don't read the code computer programmers can change how a piece of software a program or application works.
Multi User - Multi-user Means an operating system or application software which can be shared between several devices without having to buy it again. You can use this in a business or a school where you have multiple computers and therefore is cheaper but you can’t copy and distribute it to others.
Single User - A single user license grants one user the ability/right to use the software package. This means that say if someone bought a windows software only you can access it, you are not allowed to share it as the software still belongs to someone else ,where as you have only bought it for YOU to use on YOUR computer/laptop. A single user license DOES NOT allow you to change the source code of the software that you have bought.
I recommend the multi user software because more than one user can use it. so it would be ideal for a large business or a business that's just starting because It allows more than

the benefits of this action are
access to internet,software update,tech support,improves productivity, product replacement and easier interaction with system
the implications (down sides) are Affect system performance could D/L thing you don't want (tool bars), computer might not have the requirements for the software,lose of services and D/L malware bugs or viruses.
