WAP’s v Network Range Extenders/Boosters

Like most people who cannot get wi-fi internet unless they sit next to the modem, you have probably purchased devices that boost or extend the wi-fi range into other rooms. And like most people you wish you had not wasted your money. There are hundreds of “Wi-Fi Range extenders“, “Wi-Fi boosters“, “POE (Power over Ethernet)” devices available at your local electrical retailer and although many do help, they do not provide a complete solution that provides full-strength, secure, multi-user, wi-fi access over a wide area (including outdoors)   A properly configured WAP (Wireless-Access-Point) network provides seamless Wi-Fi access throughout buildings large or small by automatically switching to the WAP with the strongest signal, no need to keep manually switching between different wi-fi networks as you move from room to room. Some people try to get around this by configuring the extenders/boosters with the same name (SSID). This works as long as the signal from the modem and the extender do not overlap, if they do, network conflicts can occur and you can do more harm than good.

Network Design & Consulting services

Network Design & Consulting services to households, business clients, Architects, Designers and Builders for Smart Wiring of Homes and Offices. Wether you are building, designing, renovating or moving house/office The IT Guys can help with Networking, Internet and Wifi issues. Trouble Shooting Internet and Wi-Fi Testing and Consultancy Services Designing, Building and upgrading home and office Networks During the design phase of any house,  office build or renovation, the internet and networking requirements of the home or office need to be considered to ensure it is “future-proof”. This is often referred incorrectly as a “Smart-Home”or “Smart-Wiring” Architects often rely on their Electrical Contractors or the Builder for advise and more often than not will try and sell you a “Smart-Home” package from a “Smart-Home-Contractor” that specialise in “home technology solutions, smart wiring, home automation, one touch control, security systems, audio visual products” etc. Any Electrical Contractor can carry out “Smart (Ethernet) Wiring and cabling” but many prefer to sub-contract it out as they do not like terminating ethernet cables. Many Building companies attempt to sell clients an “Smart-Home” packages carried out by “Smart-Home-Contractors” which often offer solutions that are already 10 years out-of-date and do not meet the demands of a modern families internet and entertainment requirements. Many “Smart-Home” packages only offer “hard-wired” internet/home-networking solutions which DO NOT take into consideration the demands of multiple smart-phones, tablets, computers, sound-systems, security-systems, TV’s and streaming that all require high-speed wireless internet access throughout the whole house and often into gardens and out buildings. These contractors are still stuck in an era where everyone had a home-theatre and Foxtel was the only non-free-to-air solution, and the Foxtel signal needed to be piped through the house using multiple coaxial and HDMI cables and multi-room infra-red controllers. In 2017 there are a multitude of entertainment options available in addition to traditional Foxtel and Free-to-Air TV. All require fast internet streaming services and offer simultaneous streaming on multiple TV’s and devices. Hard wiring coaxial and HDMI cabling throughout the house is ancient technology, as are the requirements for multiple “Sonos-Boost” devices. The IT Guys (WA) offer consulting services to Clients, Architects, Designers and Builders to make sure the technologies to be deployed (Computers, Servers, TV’s, Home Theatres, Telephones, Alarms etc) are the correct ones to meet the clients needs.

In the past the majority of homes had one PC/Computer connected by an Ethernet cable to a modem which was connected to a telephone point. Today, this is the exception rather than the rule. With the explosion of personal Wi-Fi enabled devices (iPad, Tablets, laptops); smart-phones (iPhone, Android, Windows); Smart/Internet enabled TVs; Video streaming services (Netflix, Foxtel); Wireless Speakers (Sonos, Bose) and Internet Connected Security Systems; Fast Internet Access is now a necessity in every room and corner of the house and even outside. Smart-Wiring Internet packages offered by many builders and home-automation companies are purely hard-wired solutions, that will provide top-speed internet as long as your TV, Media Player, Computer or device are physically connected to an Ethernet Outlet by an Ethernet Cable (see below) The above solution only allows for the modem/router to produce the Wi-Fi signal in one location (usually the garage or a cupboard, if located in the “hub” or “comms-box” or in a single room) As more home-automation devices become available, Wireless Smart-Wired-Home systems (aka Wi-Fi Internet Access Enabled Homes) as opposed to simple hard-wired smart-home-solutions are becoming de rigueur. We offer 3 solutions: Solution 1: Replace Ethernet wall plates with in-wall Wireless Access Points (WAPs) Simply replacing existing ethernet wall plates with Ubiquiti in-wall plates, turns each wall-plate into a Wi-Fi hotspot and provides strong Wi-Fi up to 25m from each wall plate.

Wi-Fi Troubleshooting

Having problems getting Internet and Wi-Fi throughout your home or office? We offer a number of solutions. In the past the majority of homes had one PC/Computer connected by an Ethernet cable to a modem which was connected to a telephone point. Today, this is the exception rather than the rule. Your fastest internet speed is always going to be when connecting to the modem with an ethernet cable. However, Smart Phones, iPads and many laptops can only connect to the internet wirelessly over Wi-Fi. ISP supplied Internet Modem Routers provide Wi-Fi internet but the further you get away from the modem, the weaker the signal and internet speed become. With the explosion of personal Wi-Fi enabled devices (iPad, Tablets, laptops); smart-phones (iPhone, Android, Windows); Smart/Internet enabled TVs; Video streaming services (Netflix, Foxtel); Wireless Speakers (Sonos, Bose) and Internet Connected Security Systems; Fast Internet Access is now a necessity in every room and corner of the house and even outside. Unfortunately, your standard ISP-supplied NBN or Internet modem/router will only deliver Wi-Fi over a short distance and will not penetrate thick walls or concrete floors. Even though you may have recently upgraded to the NBN, you will only benefit from the improved speeds by using a hard-wired network (ethernet) cables. You can improve the speed and distance the wi-fi signal will travel by using Wi-Fi boosters and Wi-Fi extenders (including POE devices) but only with a limited effect. It is impossible to achieve high-speed internet via boosters and extenders over more than 2 or more rooms, the drop-off in speed and bandwidth compared to that at the modem can be 50% or higher. Boosters and extenders will not work between concrete floors and are suited to large open plan homes and offices. If your home or office has Smart-Wiring back to a central hub of comms box your best solution would be to add Wireless-Access-Points (WAPs) at strategic locations to provide Wi-Fi to other parts of the building away from the modems location. WARNING FOR HOME BUILDERS – Smart-Wiring Internet packages offered by many builders and home-automation companies are purely hard-wired solutions, that will provide top-speed internet as long as your TV, Media Player, Computer or device are physically connected to an Ethernet Outlet by an Ethernet Cable (see below) The above solution only allows for the modem/router to broadcast a strong Wi-Fi signal in one location (usually the garage or a cupboard, if located in the “hub” or “comms-box” or in a single room) We offer 3 solutions: Solution 1: In a smart-wired house, replace Ethernet wall plates with in-wall Wireless Access Points (WAPs) Simply replacing existing ethernet wall plates with *Ubiquiti in-wall plates, turns each wall-plate into a Wi-Fi hotspot and provides strong Wi-Fi up to 25m from each wall plate and includes 2 or 4 Ethernet points. Please contact us for pricing. Solution 2: In a smart-wired house, plug Unifi WAPs into existing ethernet sockets Connect WAP’s to existing Ethernet wall sockets and place on floor or behind cupboards. Effective but not very aesthetic. Solution 3: Hard wire WAPs to the ceiling The most aesthetic (and effective) solution involves fixing Unifi WAPs to the ceiling at strategic locations through the house or office and hard-wiring them back to a central hub or comms-box See our solutions below for small units up to multi-storey large homes, by clicking on the links below. Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for small unit or apartment Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for small homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for large sized homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors *Ubiquiti in-wall units and WAP’s should be powered by a POE switch or POE injector plus a Cloud Key to configure the systems.

Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors

Wireless (Wi-Fi) Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors from $1,559 No matter how the internet is delivered to your home or office (NBN, HFC, ADSL, 4G) there still exists the problem of providing the Wi-Fi Internet signal throughout the building to be used by phones, tablets, laptops, smart-tvs, fetch boxes, Apple TV etc. The Internet signal comes into your home or office via a telephone cable, optical fibre or HFC cable, terminated on an internal wall. A router/modem is attached to that socket (or the NBN box) and this provides internet services either via a cable or wire to your computer or by a Wireless Wi-Fi signal that is produced by the modem. The most likely location of the Modem/Router is where the telephone socket or NBN box is located. This can be in any section of the house but usually found in the lounge, study or garage. With most modems only having a Wi-Fi range of a few meters, and not penetrating solid walls easily, this often means that non-adjoining rooms may not receive a strong enough signal to allow Wi-Fi to be used in those locations. To transmit strong Wi-Fi signal into poor reception areas of the house or office, we recommending installing one or more Ubiquiti Wireless Access Points (WAPs) that are hard-wired (ethernet cabling) back to the modem or switch located in a data/comms cabinet (which can often be in the garage or a cupboard in an existing smart-wired house). Communications/Network Cabinet Usually located in a garage, cupboard or robe, architects/builders will often specify a Harmony Box or Starserve box (see below) as the central data/comms cabinet (also referred to as a “hub”. Although space saving, they do not have enough room to allow for a modem modem let alone a POE switch. The IT Guys recommend installing a standard 6RU or 12RU Data cabinet, especially for larger homes. Typical data/comms cabinets can be wall mounted or free standing and cost between $100 to $300 + installation. Wireless Access Points (WAPs) Wi-Fi is delivered through the home or office using a series of Wireless Access Points (WAPs) . We recommend using Ubiquiti Wireless Access points in conjunction with Ubiquiti Switches and Cloud Key Controllers. Power for the WAP’s is transmitted through the ethernet cabling, so no need to install additional power sockets in ceilings etc. Ubiquiti Wireless access points come in two forms. 1. Unifi WAPs – Ceiling or Floor Mounted The WAP’s resemble a small flying-saucer and range in size from 160 to 200mm diameter. The WAP’s are strategically located at various points through the house, to provide a strong Wi-Fi signal into the required areas. If the house or office has already been smart-wired or had ethernet wall-plates installed previously, the WAP’s can be plugged into the existing wall-plate … and placed on a floor, under a table or in a cupboard, out of sight. …but ideally on the ceiling to provide maximum coverage. 2. Unifi WAPs – In-Wall Mounted Another solution is to replace the existing ethernet wall-plates socket with a wall-mounted WAP. (in-wall-wap) which provides room-wide wi-fi and includes 4 ethernet ports hidden at the base of each unit. If no adequate existing ethernet wiring exists, then an electrician is required to install the ethernet cabling. The Ubiquiti WAPs are ideally located on the ceiling, with ethernet cabling being run back to the modem, switch or central hub. Proposed solution for extra large sized houses   For the IT Guys to deploy a quadruple WAP solution for a large sized house with existing smart wiring within 10k of Subiaco, the estimated cost would be $1,559 inc GST (plus extra travel time if outside 10k plus additional cabling, power boards etc not supplied by client) If ethernet cabling is required, an electrician will need to be employed and depending on the building construction could cost anywhere between $300 and $2,000.

To transmit strong Wi-Fi signal into poor reception areas of the house or office, we recommending installing one or more Ubiquiti Wireless Access Points (WAPs) that are hard-wired (ethernet cabling) back to the modem or switch located in a data/comms cabinet (which can often be in the garage or a cupboard in an existing smart-wired house). Communications/Network Cabinet Usually located in a garage, cupboard or robe, architects/builders will often specify a Harmony Box or Starserve box (see below) as the central data/comms cabinet (also referred to as a “hub”. Although space saving, they do not have enough room to allow for a modem modem let alone a POE switch. The IT Guys recommend installing a standard 6RU or 12RU Data cabinet, especially for larger homes. Typical data/comms cabinets can be wall mounted or free standing and cost between $100 to $300 + installation. Wireless Access Points (WAPs) Wi-Fi is delivered through the home or office using a series of Wireless Access Points (WAPs) . We recommend using Ubiquiti Wireless Access points in conjunction with Ubiquiti Switches and Cloud Key Controllers. Power for the WAP’s is transmitted through the ethernet cabling, so no need to install additional power sockets in ceilings etc. Ubiquiti Wireless access points come in two forms. 1. Unifi WAPs – Ceiling or Floor Mounted The WAP’s resemble a small flying-saucer and range in size from 160 to 200mm diameter. The WAP’s are strategically located at various points through the house, to provide a strong Wi-Fi signal into the required areas. If the house or office has already been smart-wired or had ethernet wall-plates installed previously, the WAP’s can be plugged into the existing wall-plate … and placed on a floor, under a table or in a cupboard, out of sight. …but ideally on the ceiling to provide maximum coverage. 2. Unifi WAPs – In-Wall Mounted Another solution is to replace the existing ethernet wall-plates socket with a wall-mounted WAP. (in-wall-wap) which provides room-wide wi-fi and includes 4 ethernet ports hidden at the base of each unit. If no adequate existing ethernet wiring exists, then an electrician is required to install the ethernet cabling. The Ubiquiti WAPs are ideally located on the ceiling, with ethernet cabling being run back to the modem, switch or central hub. Proposed solution for large sized houses   For the IT Guys to deploy a triple WAP solution for a large sized house with existing smart wiring within 10k of Subiaco, the estimated cost would be $1,369 inc GST (plus extra travel time if outside 10k plus additional cabling, power boards etc not supplied by client) If ethernet cabling is required, an electrician will need to be employed and depending on the building construction could cost anywhere between $300 and $2000.   Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for extra large sized homes with multiple floors Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for small homes Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for small unit or apartment If you would like us to quote you on this or a larger house/office wireless networking solutions, please contact us as detailed below.

Wireless Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes

Wireless (Wi-Fi)Smart-Wired-Home solutions for medium sized homes from $1,100 No matter how the internet is delivered to your home or office (NBN, HFC, ADSL, 4G) there still exists the problem of providing the Wi-Fi Internet signal throughout the building to be used by phones, tablets, laptops, smart-tvs, fetch boxes, Apple TV etc. The Internet signal comes into your home or office via a telephone cable, optical fibre or HFC cable, terminated on an internal wall.
