Is your WIFI terrible? Do you have dead spots or WIFI only in certain areas? Wouldn’t it be great to have strong, working WIFI all over your house?

Great WIFI is more important now than ever with dozens of devices connecting in the normal home.

We use and support the Google WIFI mesh system to solve issues with bad WIFI. We have installed and configured over 50 of these devices in the past year for our customers and have had great results.

Whether you have a large house and have difficulty with coverage or just want WIFI with a strong signal that can handle the large number of devices we see in a modern household then this system is for you. Don’t spend hundreds of dollars on one of the “super routers” and still have issues with a weak signal. We can setup this system in your home and it’s scalable from 1000 sq. ft. to 7000 sq. ft. or larger. We can design a system to ensure that you have WIFI when and where you need it.

If you have issues in your current home, are building a home or would just like to discuss your options please give us a call. You don’t have to live with bad WIFI anymore.

If you have a business and have similar WIFI issues we can design, implement and support rock solid, commercial WIFI  and networking solutions also.

 

 

Dirty Computers - Mac and PC
By Asheville Computer Company / DesktopLaptopMacPCRecent Work / / 0 Comments

Dirt, dust and debris can slow down, damage and even destroy your computer. It doesn’t matter if you have a desktop, laptop, Mac or PC it has a fan or fans and constantly draws in air for cooling along with dust, pet hair, moisture and just about anything else floating around. Over time this builds up in the fans causing them to slow down or stop working. When the fans aren’t working correctly the computer will overheat, slow down, shut down or cause damage to sensitive components inside.

If your computer is more than a year or two old and hasn’t be blown out and checked for issues bring it to the Asheville Computer Company. As part of our standard diagnosis we clean out, thoroughly, all fans and ventilation. We will also check out all hardware and scan for infections of malware, viruses and nuisance programs.

If you have any questions about this service or any service we provide please let us know. We are glad to answer any questions.

macOS High Sierra Upgrade
By Asheville Computer Company / MacNews / / 0 Comments

MacOS High Sierra has been available for a couple of weeks now and we are ready to upgrade your Mac to the latest version. If you are hesitant about upgrading to new releases of macOS or not sure how it works, we can help.
Instead of you upgrading and taking a chance that you have issues or the upgrade fails let us do it for you. We take the time to do a full system backup prior to upgrade. This keeps your computer and data safe if the update results in issues or fails. You can be sure that your data is safe prior to the upgrade. We upgrade you to the latest version, check compatibility with existing programs and perform additional updates as necessary. We will also check for overall system health and recommend maintenance or upgrades where possible.

High Sierra is compatible with the following models:

MacBook (Late 2009 or later)
MacBook Air (2010 or later)
MacBook Pro (2010 or later)
Mac mini (2010 or later)
Mac Pro (2010 or later)
iMac (Late 2009 or later)

If you own one of the models above give us a call to get your worry-free upgrade to macOS High Sierra.
If you have an earlier model Mac and want to get upgraded to a previous version of macOS we can help with that too. We can upgrade to any older version of macOS with the same safe process.

It’s a Mac, Mac, Mac World

We are seeing more and more Macs this year with issues, upgrades and data transfers. We happened to have 3 similar iMac models in at one time: 2 for an upgrade from an older iMac to a newer iMac and 1 having software issues.

We were able to transfer the user programs and data to the new iMac so that everything was exactly the same when they turned on the new machine.

The 3rd iMac was reset back to factory and the latest version of MacOS was installed to get it back up and running like new for it’s new owner.

If you are purchasing a new Mac and need help setting it up and transferring your data give us a call. We also purchase some older Macs or can help with recycling hardware.

We are one of the few shops in Asheville that work on both PCs and Macs.
