Performance tune my home network

$150

"Shrey really knows his stuff We had extensive problems with our home network which was affecting speed and/or led to internet dropouts and Sonos internet wasn’t working. Shrey came with me to Office Works to buy the 24 port switching hub , he relocated the old Apple router and reconfigured the Telstra modem, he advised me on how to get Sonos music system working again. Internet now works perfectly on all LAN sockets and wifi throughout the house is lightning fast. He also simplified and rearranged the tangled mess of wires cables and leads in our tech cabinet so it all makes sense now and it’s much cleaner. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome that he achieved for us. Thank you Shrey, good job !"

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!

We have a fairly complicated Home network incl wifi and LAN system We have an NBN Telstra next gen 2 modem , an apple airport wifi router that is our main wifi router , an 8 port switching box and a Clipsal patch panel Each room in house needs Ethernet for kids computers and TV’s : our wifi isn’t working at the moment so we need both but some Lan sockets aren’t working Our regular IT guy is away and not able to attend to this , prefer it get resolved ASAP The wires are a bit of a mess and hard to see what the problem is - I have limited IT knowledge I estimate it would be 1-2 hours work unless enhancements are made to simplify it and improve it Essentially we need the wifi and Ethernet to work seamlessly so that all accessed devices incl phones in house can print wirelessly See diagram with my best illustration of the current setup * As you can see from the photo the area housing the network equipment is a dogs breakfast of cables and devices
