Good morning today we are with a customer at Beausale in Warwickshire between Warwick and Balsall Common.
We are here after to set up and install TPlink wireless access points that the customer had ordered after an initial Survey conducted by our selves at the end of last week.
The customer is currently running a Solwise wireless mains extender system, The intention is to phase this out and replace with the wireless access points at strategic locations through out the premises on an existing wired network.
We summarised on a previous visit that 2 access points connected to the existing wired network should give signal to the intended wireless areas and most probably 90 % of the building.
Today we installed the 1st TP-Link Wireless access point which allowed full wireless access to the ground floor of the customers premises with a view to installing a second on the 1st floor at a later date.
Whilst here we connected the customers HP Laserjet m1522nf network printer to the network and connected it to all the desktop and laptop computers in the premises.
Also the customer reported an issue with a Buffalo Terrastation network hard drive, This was reset to factory defaults connected to a laptop and reset up for the customers network, we also mapped the drives to show on one of the desktop computers.
For the next job today we are on the Warwick Road in Kenilworth to configure an in house broadband network including at least 2 Wireless Access Points to allow the wireless to work on all 3 floors of the Building.
First job Today is at Kenilworth Cleaning up a Hewlett Packard PC removing data and games and Setting up an email account. on this one as there was no data to keep we went straight to the emergency recovery partition and wiped the machine it was running very slow before the wipe after running like new and just needed the correct drivers for the added wireless adapter loading and a new email address for the new user.
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.
We are now with a customer on Webster Avenue in Kenilworth, We are here to repair several computer problems.
The desktop computer here has Trojan viruses and malware which we removed and then updated the antivirus software.
We reset the Router to include Wireless security.
The Philips Laptop has wireless issues and a fan that is not working, We stripped the laptop, Cleaned the fan and then reassembled this solved the fan issue, Removed and reinstalled the wireless driver which gave us working wireless .
