Internet installation with a Wi-Fi specialist
Haven’t experienced the enormous benefits of a wireless home network yet? It might be a good idea to get setup! A home network will allow you to share a home internet connection and printer as well as other files like documents, spreadsheets, movies, and music between as many computers as you like. We will help with your internet setup:
Setup a network between your computers
A wireless home network will be setup using basic and affordable hardware like a router and network card/s, all of which can be supplied by you or us.

Mesh Wi-Fi networks, or Wi-Fi mesh networks are the next evolution of conveniently connecting to the world wide web from just about anywhere in your home or office. Falling under the same networking umbrella as routers and extenders, Wi-Fi mesh network systems are the user-friendly and can offer great speeds.
Create network share locations
Rather than having copies of shared files – ‘geek speak’ for something like a family Christmas letter that more than one person might want to work on – stored all over the place, we will create one central location for sharing and show everybody how to access it quickly and easily from any device on the network.
Connect other networkable devices
What’s also great is that many other devices are ‘networkable’ too meaning they can be added to your home network and then be accessed on other devices on that network. For example, you might want to add your smart TV and digital camera to the network so that holiday photos can be viewed on your big screen TV! We’ll help with this.
We can also enable your printers and other shared media devices. Your printer/s and other media devices (like an Apple TV) will be added to the network so that everyone in the home can access them from anywhere.
Wired network solutions
If you’re after assistance setting up a wired network, we can assist there too! Wired networks are often the preference of businesses as it’s slightly more reliable and can guarantee speed. While you may be restricted by the location of a Ethernet port, making wired a less portable option, you’ll also benefit from stronger security too.
