Top Home Network Setup related questions

There are three ways to set up remote access to a home network. You can use NAS or Network Attached Storage, use a Remote Desktop tool, or look into third-party software. Feel free to ask your home network setup specialist about the best remote access option for your needs. 

If you want a VPN for your home network, you can buy a router with a pre-built VPN solution. You can also try looking for a router that supports third-party router firmware. This lets you “customize” your router’s operating system, including using it with VPN software. Or, you can ask a Tasker about integrating a VPN into your home network.  

The main difference between wired and wireless home networks is that wired networks use cables and take more time to set up since you’ll need to run multiple wires. Meanwhile, wireless networks use a wireless router and access point. Wired networks run faster than wireless home networks. But the former may not work with smaller devices, such as smartphones and tablets. 

To set up a wireless home network, you’ll need a wireless router, wireless access point, Ethernet hub or switch, connectors, and broadband filters. You’ll need to set up your router and router interface first. Then, make sure that you get a good WiFi signal in every corner of your home. Only then can you connect devices to the internet. A home networking service can make sure to do these steps correctly and swiftly.

A basic home network will need a telephone socket, a telephone connection to your internet service provider, broadband filter, router (or wireless router and access point), and DSL modem. You’ll also need cables, switches, sockets, cable couplers, and cable splitters. Suppose your workspace isn’t ideal for the electrical requirements of a home network (especially if your house or building is old). In this case, you might consider rewiring your current electrical system

Some home network Taskers may also know how to repair appliances. But expertise may vary from Tasker to Tasker. To address each of your computer concerns thoroughly, you can post separate tasks for home network setup and appliance repair

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!

Home network (NBN > router > switch > devices connected via ethernet) was working well, and now internet via ethernet is no longer accessible by connected devices. Internet via Wifi is still accessible. It appears we can still connect to the home network but without internet access TP Link Router appears to be providing correct IP addresses IP addresses of connected devices seem to be individually generated - they don't appear to be the IP address from router We've tried all the usual power cycle/reboot & checked cabling as much as we can.

Thank you, Bob 😊 !

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

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

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.
