Setting Up A Wireless Network
Wireless network setup:
Setting up a wireless network will always be slightly different for every wireless home network, because the wireless location and networking equipment are never the same.
Wireless network setup takes a little planning if you want solid network connectivity between all your wireless enabled devices to work properly.
With WHNME’s Instructions, you’ll end up with a great wireless home network.
You might notice some people have great wireless signal connectivity and performance while others are always experiencing poor signal strength and wireless interference related issues, and it’s all because of the wireless network setup.
We’re going to show you the correct way to setup wireless home network equipment from the ground up, so you can experience wireless home network performance and connectivity, the way it was intended.
Wireless Network Setup
We have broken down the wireless network setup process into 3 key areas (planning, installation, and repair) to make wireless network setup fun and easy.
In the “Planning” phase we’ll be covering how to assess your wireless network location and properly choose your network equipment so that it fully supports your wireless enabled devices.
Next in the “Installation” phase we’ll be going over the different types of Internet service available and how to setup communications between all your network equipment, so that every feature of your wireless devices work as advertised.
Finally we’ll be covering “Repair” tools and troubleshooting techniques that real professionals use to get to the root of the problem, so you can determine where your wireless troubles are coming from, and have your wireless home network up and running in a matter of minutes.
Home network assessment:
Assessment of your wireless location is probably the most important step during your wireless network setup and sets the foundation for how your wireless home network will perform.
The structure that your wireless network will be operating in needs to be negotiated using a spherical sense with a direct line of sight to each location that wireless signals maybe traveling to, such as finished basements or an outdoor detached garage where RF signals pass through concrete walls and electrical panels.
Nearby buildings and adjacent apartment living spaces all need to be taken into account when setting up home wireless network equipment, because unwanted interference can come from anywhere, at any time.
We’ll show you how to avoid electrical interference’s, and position your home network equipment to give you the best connectivity and most reliable Wi-Fi signal for your wireless network setup design.
Wireless equipment compatibility:
Compatibility between all your wireless enabled devices is what makes having a wireless home network fun and exciting.
We’re going to go over equipment compatibility on common products used in wireless network designs, mention suggested alternative methods to provide not only more affordable solutions, but giving a performance increase at the same time.
There’s not much fun in having a network if your wireless enabled devices dont have the ability to share files and multimedia content between all the high tech and innovative devices on your wireless network.
We’ll teach you how to identify which networking equipment will allow you to interconnect all your wireless devices and turn your home network into a media paradise that will allow you to stream pictures, music and video between all the different devices on your home network.
Internet service types:
The Internet service type and package that you choose during your wireless network setup may have in impact on what devices and features will operate correctly.
We’re going to discuss some of the possible scenarios that you may experience when choosing your ISP during the initial setup process, and provide you with a checklist of which connection speeds will give you the performance that fits the needs of your wireless enabled devices.
The Internet service type can also affect the performance you receive at the location your requesting Internet service, depending on the distance to the ISP and or the amount of customers connected on your neighborhoods network segment.
We’re going to teach you how to make the right decision when choosing your ISP for your service location, and what questions to ask the provider to make the right choice when setting up home wireless network service.
Wireless network communication:
Communication between all your wireless home networking equipment is key to having an efficient and problem free home network.
We’re going to show you how to separate your wireless home network, allowing your new wireless-N products to run at their full potential, instead of sharing the network with older and slower wireless-G products in a “Mixed” network mode environment.
Setting up a wireless home network and having all your equipment communicating on the correct radio frequency channel can improve network performance and solve electronic interference related issues from common household appliances.
We’ll go over the different type’s wireless network standards on the market and how radio wave frequencies can affect not only the distance, but the speed at which your wireless enabled devices can operate.
Wireless home network tools:
Network tools are essential to wireless network setup, because they allow you to see the network status of the devices on your home network.
By learning several useful commands that network administrators use on a daily basis will change the way you think and feel about your wireless home network.
We’re going to teach you these commands and explain how you can use the results they provide to pin point the nature of a problem down to a particular device on the network.
After using and learning these setup wireless home network commands you’ll feel more confident about the way you handle wireless home network related issues.
We’re going show you how to set up wireless network troubleshooting checklists that will help you diagnose wireless network problems using a technician’s method of thinking.
You’ll learn how to ask users on your network the appropriate questions to solve issues in a timely manner.
We’re going to show you the correct procedure for restarting your wireless home network, and teach you what is happening during the startup of each device, so you can learn network understanding and act when devices are not functioning as they should.
Finally were going provide you with a list of all the information that you should be gathering when you need to escalate an issue to a higher level of support.
That’s it! After completing this section you will have learned all the necessary steps and information for setting up a wireless home network.
