Wireless Broadband

Many of our customers nowadays have more than one PC or laptop with which they would like to access the internet.

Although it should be a straightforward process to configure all of your devices to work properly together, setting up a wireless network isn't always as easy as it would appear.

As more and more wireless networks are using the limited radio bandwidth available, it's becoming more common in built-up areas to see frequent dropped connections or even not being able to connect at all due to interference on wireless channels.

WiFi networks using the frequency range of 2.4GHz can conflict with various other electronic devices in a home, such as microwave ovens and cordless phones.  Any such interference could result in slow or dropped network connections.

Likewise, routers supplied by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are usually preset to use the best frequencies (Channels 1, 6 and 11).

If your neighbours wireless networks are using the same frequency as your router, interference between different home networks is not uncommon.

We can configure your wireless router to work perfectly in its specific location, i.e. your home/office where it has to operate.

It's also important to ensure the security on your router is configured correctly to stop anybody nearby using your Internet connection - which would leave you liable for them using your broadband connection.

Computers secured with the latest antivirus and firewall software, Windows® updates and security patches will also ensure that you are able to stay safe online.
