Network Setup Services
Home Network Setup
Most homes have a modem, which gets the signal from your high-speed provider, and a router, which splits the signal so it can be used on other computers and devices but without proper Network Setup you can’t be sure everything is working properly.
In theory, that’s how it works. There are dozens of things which prevent this from working properly. From bad equipment (like modem, router, wires, the signal from your provider or faulty computer) to incorrect settings or a corrupted computer.

After we’re done your network will be working and secure so you can connect your tablets, laptops, smartphones, android boxes, gaming consoles, smart TVs, smart devices, media servers and security cameras.

Network Setup & Services FAQ
What is computer networking?
At it’s simplest form, computer networking is simply linking two or more computers together on a shared communication line. There are a number of technologies for accomplishing this, including serial ports, USB (which is simply another type of serial port), parallel ports (uncommon these days), token ring (now uncommon), etc. The most common way to connect together computers is via the use of cat5, cat5e, or cat6 ethernet cable. These are standardized cables, and the signals inserted onto them are also standarized to ease connecting one define to another.
Is a home network difficult to setup?
The real answer is “it depends.” There *are* very simple home network setups; just file and print sharing. Adding features beyond that adds complexity. Happily, systems allow you to kind of sneak up on that complexity, adding it only after you’ve reached a certain comfort level.
How far apart can the computers be, from each other?
The distance between points on a wired network is limited to 300 feet. There are other factors that may limit this, though. Wireless networking is also available and has come a long way. Large areas, indoors and out, can be covered with our wireless network setup service.
Do I have to install special wiring in my house?
Perhaps. As mentioned the most common type of home networking installation will include a cat5/5e/6 ethernet wire. These wires are very easily installed during construction. They can also be routed in old houses, with more difficulty. There are also other types of products, such as power line modems that transfer signals around your home via the use of your existing power cabling. And, certainly, if you want to ignore a wired network you can implement a wireless home network instead!
Is it dangerous to connect my network to the internet?
Yes, it can be. Ask Full Spectrum Computer Services about proper security measures to take to ensure your data is always safe.
How do I connect to the internet?
You will need to gain internet access from an Internet Service Provider or ISP. There is generally more than one provider in large urban areas, but choices are often limited in rural areas. Your ISP may provide access through “cable” as does Rogers with their Ignite product, or perhaps your phone company provides internet access through a “fibre” connection. The satellite network companies and cellular phone companies may also provide access in your area, or you may have a local wireless internet provider… perhaps even your own municipality. In any case, you connect your home network to the internet via the use of a hardware device that includes an “internet gateway”.
Can computers on the network run different operating systems?
Yes. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 11, Windows Home Server, Windows Server, Linux, Mac OS, etc. are all able to coexist on a home network.
