In these modern times, we are spending more time at home than ever before. Many of us choose to work from home, exercise at home, relax at home, game at home and interact with family and friends from home. It is therefore undeniable that the internet plays a crucial and integral part in many of these daily routines, which is why a solid home network installation has never been more important than it is now.
In today's digital society of social networking, internet banking, online shopping, video conferencing, gaming and security, a good, strong, and reliable internet and WiFi network, wherever you are is paramount - or frustration is likely to set in!
At Pedigree Networking, we believe that an internet connection should not have to be a consideration, but automatic and hassle-free in the modern home and workplace. Therefore, we take great pride in the design and installation of quality networks.
A network from Pedigree Networking will give you connectivity wherever you need it and have zero impact on how you connect and stay connected to the internet, whatever device you are using to connect, and whatever you are using the internet for.
With years of experience and trained certified technicians, Pedigree Networking is the only choice when it comes to installing or improving internet coverage throughout your property.
While the introduction of Fibre into many homes has increased internet connection speeds, this does not mean that this newer delivery method will automatically improve WiFi coverage and speed in all rooms and areas of your property. It simply means that the speed the ISP (Internet Service Provider) is delivering, is a faster one - but only to the router!
To be able to take advantage of faster internet speeds and stronger, more reliable WiFi connections, you need to add access points to your network which will pass the internet from the router to strategic positions within the property where there are other access points.
Newer WiFi frequencies do not penetrate walls and floors as effectively as older frequencies so it will appear that the WiFi is either not working or is very slow. There are only two options to resolve this - Powerline Adaptors and cabled WiFi Access Points.
The best option (where possible) is a cabled WiFi access point network. This option sends the internet through dedicated CAT6 networking cables throughout the property to wireless (WiFI) access points which transmit the WiFi signal.
Both options broadcast both the older and newer WiFi frequencies allowing (where sufficient units and coverage exists) for seamless, drop less WiFi, known as a MESH network.
The result - seamless connections to all wireless devices, anywhere in your property both inside and outside!
If you cannot connect to the internet in certain areas of your property, experience drop-outs when on a video or internet call, or experience black spots, you need to get Pedigree Networking in to resolve the problem - NOW!
Whether you are starting with a new build or have an older property, with careful planning and a professional evaluation, we will suggest the correct option to ensure you have the best possible coverage, wherever you are - no blackspots and no dead zones!
There are a multitude of options on the market from various manufacturers all purporting to do the same thing - to improve internet and WiFi coverage throughout your property. Few deliver what they say "on the box" to the level they should.
Pedigree Networking has however, done the legwork for you and sorted the good from the bad to ensure that every installation we do, will perform as stated.
Both can be used to provide full-speed internet in almost any part of your property. So how exactly do they work, and more importantly, which one is right for you?
Powerline adaptors pass the internet from the router, through the electrics of the property, allowing additional WiFi units in key locations to re-broadcast the WiFi signal - where there is a power point.
This option is ideal for older properties where cabling has not been installed or properties where cables cannot be run. More than two adaptors will allow the creation of a MESH WiFi network.
A Powerline network consists of two or more adaptors on one network with a maximum of nine units possible to be connected. The first or master, is plugged in to an electrical socket and connected directly to your router. Additional WiFi units are plugged in to other sockets in the property, all communicating with your WiFi devices and each other, using the electrical circuits to pass the internet from point to point.
A cabled WiFi access point network works in a similar way to Powerline however it uses a different method to deliver internet from point to point.
Instead of passing the internet feed through the electrics, each access point is connected directly to a controller via a dedicated CAT6 or network cable - no power socket is needed as they are powered by the controller. This system ensures there is less loss of speed.
This is the best if the property is new and has network cables installed as legally required, if the property is being renovated and tubes can be run inside the walls or if there is a way to get cables from the controller to the access points.
In most cases, access points can deliver a stronger network and have the added advantage of being able to be installed outside as there are waterproof versions available.
