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.
At Kenilworth in the morning to sort out an adsl wireless router , and help a little with google web page search stuff with @suecablephoto www.suecablephotography.co.uk .
Then the afternoon in Henley in Arden first setting up an Apple Mac with a virtual Windows using VMware Fusion happy to say that’s easier to do since i first set one up a good few years ago.
Followed by a trip to Yew Tree Farm Shop http://www.yewtreefarmshop.com/index.php/yew-tree-farm/ at Wootton Wawen to perform minor surgery to a dell laptop computer by disable a misbehaving mouse pointer.
Phew last job of the day we are now in Lillington Between Leamington Spa and Cubbington . We are here to setup a new router on an aol broadband system, The old router is a BT one that looks like its been used for 6 years or more one of the original ones aol provided when it first launched broadband. still we managed to find all the details and set up a netgear wireless router in its place.
This Afternoon im at Aztec Design on Aragon drive just off of the Mtyon Road in Warwick it seems the ADSL Router we fitted here with an Bridged access point system to cover the house has an odd fault, We discovered that it looses the settings upon power failure and at other intermittant times. this has been replaced underwarranty and tested all seems well
Next we are working on Hill Rise in Cubbington for a customer setting up a HP Wireless Multifunction Printer Scanner, all tested and working Wireless via 2 computers.
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.
This Morning we are in North Leamington installing a Wireless Bridge system of Access Points, The main objective of this is to share the Buildings Internet connection on the first floor with a room in the cellar(mainly to be used with a building wide Sonos music system), We managed to accomplish this using only 2 access points one which has to be wired to the main router and the other in a strategic location in the cellar on route to the room requiring access.
The first attempt at this failed due to the signal interference so after a rethink we relocated the second access point to a room on the Ground floor this appears to be working well.
This Morning We are on the fosse way Near Halford in Warwickshire to solve a broadband issue on a BT Router and a wireless Toshiba Laptop Computer.
For the next job this morning we are at a guest house in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire installing a wireless bridge system of access points, The main objective of this is to share the buildings internet connection on the first floor with at the other end of the building for the guests to use, We managed to accomplish this using only 2 access points one which has to be wired to the main router and the other in a strategic location on the first floor on route to the room requiring the access.
Good morning today we are working at Stratford upon Avon in Warwickshire for www.terry–green.co.uk ro Reinstall the customers equipment after an office move, This includes installation and testing of computers,Wireless Printer,and a Netgear bridged access point system, All to be linked to BT broadband router.
This morning we are at Kineton in Warwickshire with McGurk Performance Cars . We are here to repair one of the computers in the office it has an odd fault with the wireless, So we removed the Netgear Wireless PCI Card and added a new Wireless USB adapter.
This morning we are at Stockton village near Southam in Warwickshire, We are looking at a customers broadband problems, For some reason the router had lost its ADSL log in information so we reentered and tested by emulating a power cut and this solved the ADSL broadband Problem.
We are now able to offer an installation service for bridged or single Access point setup.
Bridging access points is very useful for larger buildings that require full coverage of a wireless network or buildings with metal objects embeded in the walls as a way of moving the radio around the problem this requires a minimum of 2 Wireless access points with a bridge capacity.
Single access Points are mainly used to add wireless capability to an existing wired network system.
The access points are not very big typically about A5 in size and approximately 2 cm tall although you still need to allow room for the aerial at the back most can be used wall mounted as well as free standing.
