Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi, also known as WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), is the wireless broadcast signal transmitted from your Router, Wireless Access Point, or mobile Hotspot, providing both local and internet connectivity for wireless devices such as laptops, tablets, phones, printers, etc. Your router will generally have wireless functionality built-in as routers tend to be an all-in-one networking solution. However, routers often need to be placed near your ADSL/NBN internet connection port, often resulting in sub-optimal positioning of your router's wireless signal.

Adding a simple wireless access point allows you to move, expand and improve your local wireless area network. Access points simply connect to your existing router or switch, either by cable or wireless, allowing you to move your routers broadcast signal to a more optimal location- such as a more central location within the home or business. You can add multiple access points to increase your wireless coverage to cover large areas, wireless mesh points to reach areas that lack physical cabling, and even bridge across large distances using point-to-point wireless bridges.

We provide on-site network analysis and advice on improving your existing Wi-Fi coverage and performance. We also provide on-site installation, configuration and troubleshooting. Please email greg@lincolncomputercentre.com.au for further information.
