Wireless Security – Do I Need It?
People ask us all the time about wireless security and whether or not they need it.The answer is absolutely.Your home network needs to be secured to keep unwanted snoops out and to keep your data in.Without security, neighbors could use your internet connection to do anything, and their activity would be traceable back to you.Beyond this, a savvy person with a laptop could break into an unsecured network and potentially access or damage your files.

The good news is that security is easy – we only needs to log into your router and set up WPA (or WPA2) security with a password.After that, any device that wants to connect to the network will have to enter a password and you are secure.If you need help setting up security, contact us or call your router’s manufacturer.

Wireless Reliability – I Keep Losing My Connection!
If you are suffering from a loss of connection on your wireless, it’s time to troubleshoot. Computer Courage is happy to come to your door and do the work for you, but we’ve also got some tips on how you can troubleshoot it yourself.

First, try plugging your computer directly into the router via a wired connection.If you still get drops, then the problem is not actually with wireless.If that’s the case, you can try troubleshooting your modem with your ISP or replacing the router.

If the problem is a wireless one, you may be suffering from interference from a phone, especially 2.4Ghz cordless phones.Try unplugging cordless phones and see if the connection improves.It may be a distance issue – try connecting when you are right next to the router.Finally, it may be a software or computer specific issue so try multiple computers – try a Mac if you have one available. If none of these steps help you to find the problem give us a call
