Home Networking

Frequently Asked Questions

Ensuring your home has a strong and robust network is the single most important thing that we do, as your network is the lifeblood that controls everything. The network is what controls your distributed video or distributed audio systems, security systems, lighting automation, and impacts the ability of everyone in the house to enjoy connectivity. 

How Many Access Points Does My Home Need?

To determine how many access points you will need, first consider the size, layout, and construction of your house. Does your home have in-floor heating, and therefore concrete floors? Does it utilize metal studs or wood studs? What is the current distance from the router to the furthest point in your home? All these factors will help determine how many WiFi access points you will have to install. 

Does Your Internet Service Provider Matter?

As long as your are getting fast enough upload and download speeds coming into your home, ultimately your choice of internet service provider is up to you. We are familiar with all the ins and outs of their specific modems and routers and will be able to work with any ISP. 

Are There Too Many Competing Networks In My Space?

It can be frustrating to open up your computer and see several other WiFi networks in your immediate vicinity, and then have trouble connecting to your network. It is possible that you are getting interference from competing WiFi networks operating on the same channel as yours. We utilize hardware and software to generate a “heat map” of the WiFi coverage in your home. This includes the strength and channels of nearby networks so we can ensure the least amount of interference for your network.
