Business WIFI Access Points
By Asheville Computer Company / BusinessRecent Work / / 0 Comments

Most businesses grow their network over time, as needed. This leads to pieced together equipment, often consumer grade, that will have issues with reliability and effectiveness.

This project was to replace a wireless network that had been patched together over the years to provide wireless to a large church. Because it used consumer routers as access points and was a mishmash of hardware it had issues with signal strength and the ability for many users to access the system at once.

We replaced all the existing wireless access points, router and switches to upgrade to Gigabit network speeds and provide a reliable and consistent WIFI signal to the whole building under one unified network. We also replaced their existing business router to handle the increased usage now that the WIFI signal was working throughout the building and would be used more extensively.

The customer also took advantage of the network equipment’s ability to have a built-in guest network to separate the business side from the public facing side of the network.

Your business needs a fast, stable, modern and cost-effective network to function in today’s world.

We can design and build your network, both wired and wireless, from the ground up. Don’t struggle with an unreliable network or weak WIFI signal.

We can also troubleshoot, repair and upgrade your existing wired / wireless network. Whether you are a small home office in need of a couple of computers networked for file and printer sharing or a larger business needing a wireless network to cover a large warehouse. We can provide a network solution to fit all needs.

Verizon Cradlepoint Setup
By Asheville Computer Company / BusinessRecent Work / / 0 Comments

This business customer has a need for high speed internet but is unable to get traditional cable or DSL service to their location. This leaves them with cellular internet as the only option.

They need a router, along with a backup router, to send the signal to all their wireless devices and several wired computers. We setup two new Verizon access points and matching Cradlepoint routers to handle all the traffic for the whole network.

While this customer is using the Cradlepoint / Verizon setup as their sole internet connection this can also be used as a fail safe for traditional cable, fiber or DSL connection. If your service is interrupted from your main ISP you can switch over to the cellular router until your normal service is restored. This can save valuable time and money and keep your company from going down for extended periods of time due to outside circumstances.

If being online and running is crucial to your company please give us a call.
