Home networking is becoming quite popular. Especially with high speed
internet access becoming available and people working out of the home.
We can help you network two or more computers in your home and setup
DSL service. We can network your computers by one of three ways: Cable
(CAT5), wireless or through your phone lines. Below is an explanation
Cable - This
is the most popular of the three. We run one cable for each computer
that needs a connection. You will also need a switch or hub for the
cables to plug into. You will also need a network card for each computer
that will be connected to the network. This type of network will allow
you to communicate at 100mbps. This is the most popular of the three
but it requires cable to be run from each computer to the switch or
Phone Line -
This can be quite convenient since you will use your existing phone
wiring and there is no need for additional cables to be run. The downside
is that you are limited to 11mbps for communication on your network.
Wireless networks are becoming popular. They have two major downsides
though. 1. They are quite expensive to setup and 2. They have a limited
signal range (about 150 feet). With wireless you do not have cables
all over the place and if you have a laptop or notebook computer you
can access the network from anywhere in the house.
We will be happy
to implement any of these networks for you. If you need further help
or explanations, please contact us.
