Justin was incredibly knowledgeable and clearly identified where the issues were and how to resolve them.

Home network


Alex was polite, good comms, and made sure that everything was working correctly before leaving. My home network is now running the best it ever has, and for the first time ever I can connect to towers in another room - and even print from the other side of the house! I have no problem recommending Alex for any home network task

What do home network setup services include?

Home network setup services typically include gathering the components (hardware and software) to set up your wired or wireless home network. Setting up your home network may also involve configuring security settings and connecting all devices in your home (or workplace) to the internet. 

A home network setup service does not include assembling your PC—though you can get this done by posting a separate task on our platform. Here’s an overview of the tasks involved in a home network installation service: 

Gathering the components for your home network installation 

Your Tasker can guide you in choosing the correct hardware and software for your home network setup. If needed, you can also ask your Tasker to obtain the additional supplies for your installation. 


Hardware requirements typically include: 

  • A telephone socket 

  • Telephone connection to your internet service provider (ISP) 

  • Broadband filter 

  • Router 

  • Wireless access point 

  • DSL modem 


Optional components are WiFi extenders or repeaters, cables, and cable couplers/splitters. You may also need to install some new switches and sockets to your home. 


Meanwhile, software requirements may include: 

  • A firewall 

  • Internet connection sharing (ICS) 

  • A computer that will be designated as a router 

Connecting your router 

Your local network installer needs to ensure all your devices (laptops, desktops, etc.) have a network adapter compatible with your router. Then, they’ll switch off the DSL modem and power up your router. They’ll plug network cables into the router port labelled “Internet” or “WAN.” The other end will go into your modem. 


Once the internet signal is strong on both the router and modem, the Tasker will connect the laptops and other devices to the internet. 

Accessing and securing the router’s interface 

Next, the home network setup specialist will usually connect one laptop to the router and access the router’s interface via a browser, the default IP (Internet Protocol) address, default administrator account, and password. The specialist will then change that laptop’s IP settings to match your router’s settings. This process makes it easy to make any configurations through that particular laptop. 

Adjusting your security and IP address settings 

Your home network must be secure from cyberattacks (or even just your next-door neighbor leeching off your WiFi). A Tasker can secure your network through the router management interface, usually under the “Security” menu. Having problems with your internet speed? Your computer specialist may also look into the issue and troubleshoot for viruses that might have infected your device. 

Setting up a group and user accounts 

Home network setup may also include creating a group for easily sharing files, pictures, and printers. Once this step is done, the Tasker sets up user accounts. This can help parents or bosses limit their kids’ or employees’ access to the internet, including who can view and edit documents, see certain file folders, and so on. 


The exact process for setting up the group and user accounts may vary depending on the operating system that your devices have. Still, the result will be the same: a secure, easy-to-use wired (or wireless) home network!

I have a desktop pc and 2 laptops connected to my home network. All have been visible to each other and files on the desktop have been accessed by all machines over a lengthy period. There is an extender used by one of the laptops and the desktop is connected via ethernet. I am replacing the desktop with a new laptop and have added it to the network and, as far as I can see, sharing is set up properly on all machines but I am getting Access Denied messages and I am ready to give up on finding out what is going on. I am looking for someone who understands small home networks like this to sort it all out. Eventually, I will be removing the desktop and the new laptop will act as the central file repository but I need all pcs on the network initially to facilitate transferring files & programs to the new machine. Happy tyo provide more detail as required - Due date: Flexible

We have an Optus NBN connection which we use for internet and home phone. We also have a Google Nest Wifi Home Mesh Wi-Fi System with an Extender Point. Finally there is a switch (dumbed down router) in one room that allows networked connections. Currently the Home Wifi is not working consistently through the house, with some rooms not seeing internet via the primary username/password (but the guest account does) Working theory: Google Home has a "Potential security risk found" warning: "It looks like there's an unknown server on your network. This could compromise your connection." Pretty sure this is the switch (dumbed down router) mentioned above. Outcomes desired: Restore home phone use Ensure computers can see each other via the network Ensure the printer can be used via the network Ensure all Google Nest Audios are connected once more
