Modem & Router Setup
This service includes the Installation and configuration of your router. The initial setup of the modem and router isn't to complicated. But knowing how to get great signal strength throughout you home or office could prove complicated. So let one our technicians bear that burden for you.
If you go to 39:49 of this video you can see us doing a Wi-Fi Assessment.
What's the difference between
a Modem, a Router, and a Access Point?
A modem, router, and access point are all networking devices that serve different purposes in a home network.
A modem is a device that connects your home network to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and allows you to access the Internet. A modem translates the signal from the Internet into a form that can be used by a computer or other device.
A router is a device that acts as a junction between the modem and other devices on the network, such as computers, smartphones, and smart home devices. A router allows multiple devices to share a single Internet connection and provides network security by blocking unwanted incoming traffic. A router also provides a local area network (LAN) and can be used to create a Wi-Fi network, allowing wireless devices to connect to the Internet.
An access point is a device that extends the coverage area of a Wi-Fi network. An access point is connected to a wired network and wirelessly communicates with other devices, allowing more devices to connect to the network without being limited by the range of the original router. Access points can also provide additional features, such as increased wireless speed and support for multiple wireless bands.
In summary, a modem provides Internet connectivity, a router distributes the Internet connection to multiple devices and provides network security, and an access point extends the coverage area of a Wi-Fi network. All three devices can be used together to create a complete home network.
What's the difference between
a one router network vs a mesh network?
A single router network and a mesh network are two different types of home Wi-Fi networks that serve different purposes and have different capabilities.
A single router network consists of one router that provides Wi-Fi coverage to the devices in a home or small office. The router is connected to the Internet via an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and distributes the Internet connection to other devices on the network. A single router network can provide adequate coverage in small spaces, but may not provide strong, consistent Wi-Fi signal in larger spaces or multi-story buildings.
A mesh network, on the other hand, consists of multiple access points that work together to provide Wi-Fi coverage throughout a larger area. Each access point communicates with other access points in the network to create a seamless, high-speed Wi-Fi experience. Mesh networks are designed to eliminate dead spots, providing strong, consistent Wi-Fi signal throughout the entire coverage area.
In summary, a single router network provides Wi-Fi coverage in a limited area, while a mesh network provides a larger, more consistent coverage area with no dead spots. Mesh networks are ideal for larger homes and offices that require strong, reliable Wi-Fi signal.
