General Internet related questions.
Have you ever wondered if there's a solution to the ever-dropping Wi-Fi signal in your home? Do you have dead spots where the signal won't reach, such as the basement, the attic or the garage? Using a mesh router may help.
Mesh routers are the latest technology upgrade for home Wi-Fi networks. Mesh networks have been used for years in large places where a secure network is critical, like military bases and businesses. (In such cases, the network is often isolated and not connected to the internet.) Now, residential wireless-internet users can optimize their home Wi-Fi with a form of mesh networking, too.
If you have a large home — at least 3,000 square feet — or one with an unusual layout, more than two stories or interior brick walls, you probably regularly encounter Wi-Fi dead zones, and your setup could be a good candidate for a mesh-router system.
Call our Sales Office to talk about our Command Centre Plus mesh options that we can provide for you.
- Check your default or Service Set Identifier (SSID) information to ensure that you are attempting to connect to the correct network and verify you are using the correct password.
- Make sure that your wireless connectivity is enabled on your device. If you are still unable to connect to the wireless network, contact technical support.
- Make sure your router is turned on.
We offer some protection by stripping away email from known mail servers used to send out virus and exploitive emails and other malware. We cannot protect our customers from viruses that hide in web sites and that are unknowingly attached to mail from legitimate senders. It is the responsibility of all users of the Internet to make sure that they have adequate safeguards in place including the use of firewalls and up to date anti-virus software. Using complicated passwords, staying up to date on software releases, avoiding some websites altogether, and having a good backup are other important items in your arsenal. Complicated passwords include upper and lower-case letters, symbols and numbers with a password at least 8 characters long.
