Good morning we are with a customer on Windy Arbour at Kenilworth in Warwickshire, we are here because the customer has reported that their computer is running very slowly, its found that the phone line has a noise quality issue which will effect the internet connection quality and will cause our intermittent internet problem, we investigate further and find that we also have a second issue slowing down the computer, that is the computer has 2 antivirus programs installed and they are conflicting with each other, after removing one and editing the registry, and checking all up to date this computer was working at a good speed again.
This afternoon we on Ferndale Drive at Kenilworth in Warwickshire, we are here to do some maintenance on an old Desktop Computer running Windows XP and a Netbook PC connected to a BT Infinity Wireless Router.
On the Desktop Computer we updated the antivirus to a current Version , reinstalled the wireless Adaptor and checked the startup files and Edited the Registry.
Its worth noting that on installations of BT Infinity that I come across with the Router sat on top of the Openreach Modem seem to generate a lot more heat and appear to get speed issues so I would recommend that the modem is wall mounted to combat this or at least separate on the area that they are situated in.
My Second job for today is in Kenilworth the issue is that the router shows a link to the exchange but unable to connect, on all my previous troubles of this kind it has been the password Corrupted at the Internet Service Provider, on this one how ever it is the router that was at fault, so we replaced the ADSL Modem with a new Wireless ADSL Router.
Next today we are in Kenilworth to fix a Netgear ADSL Router Problem the router appears to be working fine but the details for the admin are missing so we reset the Router to defaults and put the original settings back in taking care to write the details in to a safe area should we need to go check the router again.
We are now with a customer in Stoneleigh to look at an issue with broadband, The issue here is no connection to the exchange, so we test with a known working modem and this is the same we then went to the master socket and tested and all was ok.
Update: The fault is traced to an internet wiring fault on the phone line.
This afternoon we are at a customers in Kenilworth, We are here for Several jobs starting by Installing the customers new BT broadband router, Then setting up their new laptop computer and installing any needed software including AVG free antivirus Software and setting up an Existing Canon Pixma IP90 Printer, This was then finished up by transferring the customers data from an existing Laptop PC to the new laptop and testing that all is readable.
