Having Problems with your ISP?

If you have been experiencing ongoing problems with your ISP (Intenet Service Provider) such as Telstra, Optus, iiNet, Westnet, Amnet, TPG, Dodo etc and you think you are being given the run-around, with your permission, we can speak to them on your behalf. We can test their assumptions and suggestions and relay that information back to you in plain-english. If we believe they are supplying false information we will challenge them on your behalf and find a solution which may involve changing ISPs.

Having Problems with your internet speed and reliability?

If you are experiencing slow internet speed and reliability, let the IT Guys trouble-shoot the problem. We can make preliminary investigations and tests simply by knowing your physical address and by remotely logging into your computer. If those tests prove inconclusive we may need to visit your home to test your equipment. Upon conclusion of the testing we will make a written report including our recommendations and approximate costings.

Having Problems getting Internet and Wi-Fi throughout your home or office?

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.

Solutions 2 and 3

Connect WAP’s to existing Ethernet wall sockets and place on floor or behind cupboard

or Connect Unifi WAP’S to ceiling at strategic locations
