What does a computer service include?

The exact steps and inclusions in your computer service will depend on the computer and IT challenges you’re facing. In most cases, computer technicians are mobile so they can come to your home or office. They’ll work on your computer until issues are fixed and you’ve got the help you need. Here are just a few IT and computer services your technician can help with:

Computer & network setup

Book an IT service near you to come to your home or office and setup your personal computer, home network, or more complicated workplace IT environment. Ask your computer technician to help with hardware setup, which covers tasks like computer and Mac setup, printer help, and scanner setup. They can also work to install and upgrade software. Knowing that your Windows install or server upgrades have been carried out by an experienced computer technician ensures your systems runs smoothly.

Computer repair

Got a computer problem like a slow machine or your computer not turning on? Computer repair technicians are experienced at fixing common complaints like these. Your computer technician will start by diagnosing the problem. Once they know what they’re dealing with, they’ll fix it right away or advise you on next steps, whether you need new parts, updated software, or a more intensive service off-site. Depending on the issue, your technician may be able to offer technical support over the phone or Skype so you can get your computer fixed sooner.

Computer training & troubleshooting

Confused by computers? You’re not alone. If you want to improve your Microsoft, Google, Skype, or email skills, book a computer training session. You’ll find plenty of friendly, patient and helpful computer technicians nearby. Let them know what programmes or internet skills you want to learn and they’ll walk you through the steps or troubleshoot the challenges you’re facing. Arrange a one-to-one lesson or book a small-class IT session for your friends and colleagues.

Internet & wifi help

When your internet and wifi stop working, your world can come to a standstill. Your computer technician will whip your connections into line so it’s business as usual. Internet help can range from connecting your devices and troubleshooting connection issues to improving internet speeds and wifi extender setup

Cyber security & antivirus

Keep your computer and IT environment safe and secure from hackers and viruses. Book a computer technician to help with firewall setup and installing antivirus software. If you get hit with malware or a virus, your technician will take virus removal steps, fix any damage caused, and ensure your device is protected from future attacks.

Instal an ad hoc wifi network in my home, based on SIM card


Bayview Heights QLD, Australia

25th Jun 2024

Currently I dont have NBN yet, as they have to do further cableing and may take over one month to be ready. In the meantime, I would like to set up a wifi connection at home, where all my wifi devices can connect with each other, and also I could watch Netflix based on my mobile plan. So basically I would feed my Modem with a mobile SIM (or tethered connection via iPhone hotspot), and that would "feed" the home wifi, so I could use it in my TV. And also so that I can control my wireless devices, which need a local network (AirCon, vacuum robot, solar panel, digital lock, etc.). I have at home two modern modems from Optus, and Airport Express, a wifi repeater, and two PoE devices, together with ethernet cables of all lenghts.
