Wireless / Wired Network
The method of connecting the computer to the internet via modem and analogue telephone line, is now effectively redundant.
At this time, there are three ways to connect your computer to the internet and the ways are listed below:
a) Wired: This method uses a wired connection, called a LAN cable. It gives a secure fast connection but being attached by a wire, you are limited as to your location.
Hardware required: Digital modem and router.
Computer hardware required: LAN Card (unless its already built in)
b) Wireless: is a local area network (LAN) transmitted by radio waves rather than by wires. Wireless Internet access is broadcast from a central hub, which is a hard-wired device that actually brings in the Internet connection. The hub, broadcasts Internet connectivity to clients, which is basically anyone within receiving range
Computer hardware required: Wireless LAN Card/Wireless USB (unless its built in)or
External Hardware required: Digital modem,
router and wireless box.
c) Mobile internet relies on having a pay as you go or contract
from one of the mobile phone providers Mobile broadband can be especially useful if you use a laptop on the go ,as you can access the internet wherever you are, as long as you can pick up a mobile phone signal from your provider.
Wireless USB dongle.
Please contact us if you need any assistance with setting up any of these connections.
Data Backup & File Transfer
Its a good idea to transfer or back up your valuable data, like photos, business details, contacts and emails in case your computer data was suddenly damaged, hit by a virus, accidentally deleted or stolen. We can transfer or backup your important files, email and favourites settings and data for you.
If your computer software or operating system is already damaged to the point that it requires a new installation, we can attempt to recover and backup your data before we reinstall. It is also possible to recover files that you may have deleted accidentally. If this is the case, stop using your computer, as the files may become unrecoverable if they are written over by newer files.
We can install a package of programs of essential utilities that will enhance the capability of your machine and enable email attachments to be read particularly useful after the re installation of the operating system
Please note: The data saved by us is only kept for 14 days or until you inform us that your data is secure
Firewall and Internet Security
If your computer is online you need to ensure you make it as secure as possible to prevent unwanted spyware, hacking and access to your personal details and files. As internet usage has grown, so have security threats. You can protect yourself and your computer by ensuring you have all. the security patches for windows and installing a firewall, which is simply a program or hardware device that filters the information coming through the Internet connection into your private network or computer system. If an incoming packet of information is flagged by the filters, it is not allowed through.
Firewalls also can alert you when spyware programs attempt to transmit your sensitive information over the internet.
