Have you got a room in your house that is
struggling to get the internet? Got a downstairs
area that you can't get online? What we are
talking about here is wireless internet. Tablets,
notebooks and smartphones can all potentially
connect to wireless internet. Most internet
providers (Telecom, Slingshot etc.) supply
you with a wireless modem/router. While
the coverage from these modems is normally
enough to cover an average house, all sorts
of interference and obstacles can weaken the
What can you do about this? Think of your
wireless modem as a donut, a tasty large house
sized donut. Wireless signal radiates outwards in
this fashion. Relocating the wireless modem in
the middle of the house will give you even signal
distribution. The problem with this approach is
that not everyone has a phone jack or power
point in the middle of their house.
Fear not, there are other options. Wireless range
extenders can fix this problem. We have been
setting up quite a few of these; they look like
another modem and just require a power point.
They are installed near the weak signal spot in
your house and work like a repeater, magnifying
the weak signal it finds and boosting it to 100%.
Don't have landline broadband but have cellular
broadband? We can help you share the internet
from a 3G-Stick (Telecom, Vodafone or 2degrees).
Using a "3G Sharing Router", we can share your
3G-Stick to all your tablets/notebooks making
wireless internet more available in your home.
So if you have trouble getting wireless in an area
in your home or like the idea of sharing data from
a 3G-stick Home IT Solutions can visit you onsite
and provide a solution that works for you. Just
give us a ring or discuss this with a technician.
