Why set up a network?

By having a shared network, your technology can talk to each other. Network sharing enables you and other people in your network to access the same files, documents, and other data, from any device connected to the network. This way, you don’t have to transfer them manually or connect your technology using cables.

By ensuring that you have the right network configuration in place, your devices can communicate wirelessly and at the same time. Your devices will be able to share data with each other from one central home network.

Network Setup Brisbane – Home Network Setup

Setting up a home network is more than just taking your router out of the box and turning it on. Although it’s not particularly a difficult process, simply plugging in everything is not a guarantee that your network’s performance and security is the best that it could be.

When you hire our services, we can make sure that your home network is in top shape both performance and security-wise.

There are many steps to ensuring that your home network is fully-functional. Here are just some of the steps we can help or guide you with:


Choosing the Right Router

Your router is what corresponds to the heart of your home network. Because of that, it is only reasonable that you should invest your time in researching the best options before you finally decide on one. Our computer experts at Get Computer Repair can help you select the best router for you! We already have an idea of the best ones of the market so we can give you the best suggestions based on what you need for your home.


Connecting to the Internet

Once you’ve chosen and purchased the router for you, you can then connect it to the Internet so that you can go online. If you’re not sure how to do this, give us a call and we will send a computer technician right away.


Positioning the Wireless Router

Did you know that the positioning of your router can actually affect your network connectivity? It’s important that you place your wireless router in a central location. To reduce interference, your router should be placed away from walls and metal objects. If you’re not sure about what you’re doing, you can always give us a call and we will gladly send a computer tech who can help you!


Configuring Your Router

Once your computer is physically connected to the router, you can begin customizing your router’s configuration to what works for you. Or, you can sit back and relax while we take care of it for you!


Changing Your Password

Changing your password is actually the very first thing you should do once your home network is setup. Keeping the default password may expose your network to security risks. Our computer technicians can help you and give you tips on how to come up with a strong password!


Making Sure Your Firmware Is Upgraded

It is always a good practice to ensure that your firmware is running the latest version released by the manufacturer. Products often spend quite some time on the shelves before they get purchased so it’s possible that there are firmware updates you need to install to make sure that you’re running the latest versions. Our computer geeks are here to help!


Managing IP Addresses

There are cases when certain devices, like printers and servers, need to have the same IP address at all times. Although some devices can work perfectly with periodically changing IP addresses, some devices require a static IP address. Our computer technicians are knowledgeable when it comes to managing IP address within a home network. Give us a call if you’re having any problems and we’ll be there!


Work with Static IP Addresses

Our computer experts are used to working with IP addresses. The procedure for assigning a static IP address varies depending on the device you are trying to configure. To avoid any confusion or unnecessary stress, leave the dirty work to us!


Activating Your Wi-Fi

Once your network is properly configured, you can proceed with setting up your wireless network. This step is actually fairly easy although if you’re not sure what you’re doing and you try to configure Wi-Fi over wireless, you will lose the connection to the management console once you change the configuration. To avoid this, allow us to do the work for you!


Securing Your Network

Network security is one of the most important things to consider when setting up a home network. Of course you wouldn’t want someone tapping into your network and doing who-knows-what. Our computer technicians are trained to make sure that the network setup is always 100% secure. For a network setup that’s secure, hire our computer technicians at Get Computer Repair.


Sharing Your Data

Sharing data within your home network is one, if not the only, reason for having a shared home network. There are lots of ways to accomplish this, having a server being the best option. However, it is better for you to seek an expert to determine what’s really best for your needs. Give us a call and we will be right at your service!

There are many ways to setup a network and our team at Get Computer Repair can make sure that you get the network that is tailored to your needs.

Aside from the necessary steps, we can also offer additional services and features within your router that can improve your network’s security and performance.

Here are some additional features we can incorporate into your home network to boost your experience:

  • Dynamic DNS
