Araknis WiFi access points, switches and routers make for a fantastic Internet experience

 

"AAAAARGGH!" Here's a quote we hear a lot lately from people that hate their wireless networks.  In actuality, wireless Internet is NEVER the preferred medium and you want to go with a hard-wired connection when possible. However, the convenience of wireless is tough to beat and has become more and more popular. To ensure good wireless performance in your house:  

1) CHOOSE A QUALITY WIRELESS ROUTER

The wireless router supplied by the cable company is rarely a good choice. Selecting a better router from companies like Apple, Luxul or Ruckus will make a BIG difference in your range, speed and capabilities. Our client Marlena had us change out her cable-supplied router for a better one yesterday and just e-mailed us with "Having WiFi all over the house is amazing". Quality routers make for a quality network as long as they are optimized correctly. Read on.

2) OPTIMIZE YOUR NETWORK

As more and more devices become wireless, all of these competing devices make it increasingly difficult to get a quality wireless signal. This can cause websites to take a long time to load, streaming services like Netflix or Amazon to drop out or other computer issues. Did you also know that your neighbor's network and devices can affect how things work in your home? Sound scary...no problem! Our technicians are trained to delve deep into your network to ensure that issues such as competing wireless channels, 2.4 Ghz noise, insufficient network speeds from the provider, etc. are dealt with promptly and accurately so that your wireless network ROCKS!

Poindexter's Blog

Our resident geek likes to muse over the latest and greatest that comes into the office. We’ve gotten tired of hearing him, so we’re letting him vent to you.

“Hi friends...Poindexter here. I LOVE computers. Aside from being able to pretend that it is a member of the opposite sex to ask it questions, it lets me access a world of music. Here are some new options that are available.

1) Sonos: This gadget acts as my personal music assistant. It lets me listen to any type of music that I want to. What’s super cool is that I control it with a special remote that works anywhere in the house and that shows me pictures of what is playing. I get feedback of the artist, songs, albums and more at all times. It’s too cool to describe adequately but we have it on display in our office if you are interested in a demo.

2) AppleTV: This neato device can transfer any movies or music that are on your computer to your home theater. You can also use it for slide-shows of photos for friends or family. Perfect for highlighting your pictures. Photos of this year’s Star Trek convention look GREAT on a 60” TV (as opposed to your computer monitor). Of course, James T. Kirk always looks fantastic.

You can also access services like Pandora internet radio, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and others with the aid of your computer and networking. Man's best friend, the dog? I don't think so, my friends...I don't think so."

P.S. Since this article's inception, wireless networking has become much more relevant. Need help with your WiFi, San Diego? Let San Diego's WiFi and networking experts help you to get robust, whole-house WiFi throughout your house and property.

Tune Up Time!

We do maintenance for our cars, for our houses and for our bodies (hopefully). Here at ATD, we are now offering tune-ups for your audio/video systems.

Systems are in constant need of being updated. Factors such as cable box updates, pesky in-laws, setting changes and room additions can all influence how your system looks and sounds. For $99.00, we will have one of our audio/video "doctors" come to your home to optimize your set-up and to make sure that you are getting everything out of your investment that you can. While we're there, if you're curious about what's available these days in the electronic world...just ask. We'll let you know about the latest and greatest while dialing in your system so it looks and sounds like new.
