Home Networking Services
Did you know that the more devices that you have on a computer network, the more likely that network is to have slower speeds. Network traffic functions similar to traffic on the road. When there are more cars on the road, the greater the congestion and longer the travel time. Most homes have a least 5 devices connected to their network. This includes computers, tablets, smart phones, and streaming devices. Not having your network optimized for the best performance, results in internet streams buffering and videos playing in lower quality by default.
Robinson Handy and Technology Services provides home networking services. By properly dividing your home network up, you will see improved speeds and almost no buffering with your streaming devices. Schedule your home networking service appointment today!
What is home networking?
A home network consists of devices that includes, but are not limited to, a router, modem, computers, and smart phones to be able to connect to the internet and to each other.
Wireless (WiFi) is better than wired (Ethernet) correct?
False. While wireless is more convenient, is has always been slower than the latest wired standard.
With wireless networks, only one device can send or receive data a time. This would be the equivalent of a cars navigating a single lane road. Traffic can only move in one direction at a time. With wired or Ethernet networks, all devices can send and receive data at the same time. This would be the equivalent of cars driving on the interstate or other multi-lane highway.
In addition, wireless signals can interfere with each other, thus further slowing the overall speed of the network. The impact of this is more common with those that live in apartments or other multi-unit dwellings that are close together than in single family houses. While this can be resolved, it does take technical knowledge and know how to address it. Robinson Handy and Technology Services has this knowledge from years of experience working with technology.
I don’t want to run wires through my house to get the fastest internet speeds.
You don’t have to. Part of the Home Networking service is to run wire through the attic or basement to connect your entire home. Just book an appointment to get started.
