    Working order of a machine

    Hello

    I know that working order can be used together with mechanical machines. For example: I finally have/get/got my car in (good) working order after I replaced some old elements.

    Is it OK to use working order with electronic devices, routers, network cards in a computer? Please look at these sentences, are they OK?:

    1. My router is not secure because Wi-Fi is not secured with password. I set some security setting in my router and finally got it in good working order / good running order. I raised the level of security in that device.

    2. I guided Kevin to change some settings in his router and finally he got/had it in good working order. It doesn't hang any more.


    Please correct where necessary.

    Re: Working order of a machine

    Thank you for your reply. I think the performance of the home network could be dependent on security settings - it depends on a context. If the router is not secured with a password then all users around can connect it. As a result router will be overloaded and may hang or work improperly. After setting a password only selected users will connect it and it won't hang any more. We will have the router in good working order. I hope you agree now and also hope I didn't make any mistake in this post :)
