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.
Good morning, Today we are with Joe Deluccis on the Chesterton Estate at Lighthorne which is located between Warwick and Banbury on the Banbury Road.
We have been called here to install a computer wirelessly on to an existing network.
The Lenovo desktop computer had windows 8 installed and needed to share files with the existing network, All the customers required drivers and software was downloaded and installed including Sage Accounts , Microsoft Office and connected to a Canon ir C2620 Network Printer and connected to the existing network shares.
Whilst here we also reconnected a Western Digital external USB hard drive to a computer.
We are now with Flooring inspirations on Wharf Street at Warwick in Warwickshire, we are here to replace a faulty router with a new Netgear DSN1000 Router, after which we do but get random Connection issues on the customers Dell Computer, to solve this problem we fixed the wireless channel , cleared the TCP IP , winsocks, cache and the DNS and this fixed the issue.
Good morning this morning we are in Warwick trouble shooting a wireless router installation, it seems one computer out of the devices here is not finding the wireless Router and we need to establish why.
Update Turns out the wireless router installed was set to auto and had choose channel 13 and for some reason the wireless card was set to US so was only able to see up to channel 11, reset to UK and all seems well plus removed a search bar from the computer.
Good morning today we are starting in Warwick to setup a HP wireless printer on a replaced wireless router for a customer.
This needed the HP wireless inkjet printer setting up to work with the BT router which required the printer to be attached via a USB cable to transfer the settings details (some of the HP Wireless printers allow you to enter the details directly on the LCD), and Then reconfiguring the laptop and 2 net books to work with it.
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
Today we are in Warwick just off of the Myton Road with Aztec Design installing a Wireless Bridge system of two Access Points, The main objective of this is to share the Buildings Internet connection in the office on the side of the house with with the rest of the building, 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 centre of the house on route to the room requiring access.
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 the Blacklow Road in Warwick, We are here to Support a customer with a Wireless Connectivity issue, The problem is that the cable modem and the Router are in a study room upstairs but the customer would like to be able to wirelessly use the internet in the lounge downstairs and connect a computer via cable in an upstairs room, To solve this we connect the Cable modem and Router to the PC upstairs as normal, The house already has fitted a network cable with a socket next to the router upstairs and another socket in the hall next to the lounge downstairs as well as a cable and socket to feed the bed room , We connect a short network RJ45 fly lead between the socket and the router upstairs, Downstairs we attach a Switch which allows us to share between the Bedroom upstairs and a Netgear Access Point to allow us to wirelessly connect in the lounge.
