Broadband & WiFi
Broadband is the term given to any fast Internet connection. Until only few years ago, most home-based PCs were linked to a modem which was plugged directly into the telephone line in order to ‘dial up’ and go online. This method of connection was often very slow and therefore most people have moved over to broadband, which provides much faster access to the internet and faster downloads.
PC Troubles can help you set up broadband and internet connections. If you have several computers in your house, it is sensible to network them together so that you can easily share files between them. Networks can either be created using wires to connect various computer equipment, or more commonly, via a wireless network.
A wireless network is easy to manage and offers additional flexibility by enabling you to use your laptop to go online anywhere in the house or garden without the use of cables. Using a wireless network also enables several users to access the internet at one time.
A further advantage of creating a home network is that it provides the opportunity to keep unsightly equipment, such as a printer, in another room creating a ‘clutter free’ environment.
