Wireless installation trouble shooting and computer repair / clean up at Tysoe between Banbury and Stratford upon Avon in Warwickshire

Good morning, today we are with Tachman Central at Tysoe between Banbury and Stratford on Avon in Warwickshire.

We are here because the customer has just moved offices and after a week of being fine the computers are failing to connect to the internet.

We tested the BT broadband and found it top be working correctly 7 Megabit download seemed very good for a village location .

The customers Acer laptop computer required the network stack drivers and settings to be reset and an easier to remove trojan virus was removed by running a malware scan whilst at it we also removed toolbars and other unneeded programs and cleaned up the registry.

On the desktop computer after checking was found to have a faulty network cable.

Whilst here it was noted that the customer was having troubles with an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy Ace), The customer had been complaining it lacked memory and also had been using the included software and a cable to transfer pictures what I suggested was that he should use Dropbox and have that transfer the pictures as the phone comes with only 2 GB RAM we removed any unused programs and installed Dropbox although its a bit slow to upload from the phone after the initial run of 80 photos it seemed to work fine.

Installing a Wireless Bridge Access Point System in Warwick

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.

Access Point setup / Wireless Bridge Installations

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.

Access Point Installation at Kineton in Warwickshire

Good afternoon, We are now with a customer on the Southam Road Near Gaydon and Kineton in Warwickshire, We are here to test the viability of using Netgear wireless access points to extend the range of the customers wireless broadband from an office in the main house to an annex at the other side of the building, After surveying and testing several set ups it was found to be cost prohibitive at this time, The issue here is that the building is made from thick cotswold Stone and although we could get a signal though its would require a minimum of 3 wireless access points to keep the signal strength high enough to use, So may be worth another look when the prices come down but at the moment it is cheaper to install another line and pay for broadband for a few years.
