Why your wireless isn’t working everywhere in your house – and what to do about it

We’ve all experienced the annoyance of being in those bits of our house where the wireless signal from our internet router doesn’t seem to penetrate. While this is a handy tactic for keeping kids from using up a whole month’s internet in three days (“sorry kids, I just can’t get the wireless to work in your bedrooms”), it is frustrating when you find your phone is connecting to the 3G network in certain rooms because it can’t get on the wireless. So is there anything you can do to get your wireless internet to penetrate through your entire house? There […]

Help! Our kids have used up all our internet!

Yep, we’ve all been there. Logged in to our computers one morning, gone to visit Facebook and …. chuuuuuuuuuugggg. How anyone ever managed to do anything on the internet with a dial-up connection we’ll never know but certainly, in this day and age, it’s near on impossible to send an email while on dial-up much less do anything remotely useful or fun. Which is why, when we find ourselves in the position where our kids have used up our entire internet allowance in the first week of the month and we’ve been shaped, it’s pretty horrifying. No more Netflix, no […]

What is ADSL and why do I need it?

Home and business Internet connections come through multiple channels nowadays, and ADSL is one of these. ADSL is an acronym that stands for ”Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line.” ADSL is a high-speed Internet service that uses normal copper-fixed connections to send and receive Internet data, usually at much higher speeds than a conventional dial-up modem can manage. The word ”Asymmetric” refers to the fact that an ADSL connection carries downstream data from the Internet towards your computer at a considerably faster speed than it does upstream data from your computer to the Internet cloud. With an ADSL connection, you don’t have […]

Is it time to update the data and communications points in your home?

Is it time to update the data and communications points in your home?

Technology keeps moving forward. Nearly every day there is a new device on the market, our Internet systems are updated, our phone lines need to be moved or additional lines need to be installed. This can create havoc in your home -you might find your telephone access points are no longer in a convenient location, or you can’t use your TV, phone and Internet without also having to hide a tangled mess of cables from sight. Add an intercom system into the mix and things can get really messy! In short, in this day and age, you need organised data points that fit into your lifestyle, not […]
