Get To Know Your Home Network Home networking is at the center of so many people's lives yet so few know anything about it. What would your life be like without your home internet connection?
Setting up a home network that actually does what you want it to can be a daunting task. Do you feel a little lost when buying new home networking devices? Maybe you feel a little frustrated and confused when trying to set everything up. Allow me to ease your frustrations. I created the WiFi Guy.net /Home IT Handbook Combo to shed some light on your path to an Awesome Home Network. Now you can get it done the right way without the “help” of annoying nerds or pushy sales associates!
Consider this. Your home Internet connection provides you with access to shopping, banking, entertainment, socializing, school, and even work. Since much of your life revolves around your home network shouldn’t home networking become a common skill like home maintenance and basic car repair? Sadly, most people would rather avoid technical learning curves. I get it! I know how painful flipping through two-inch-thick tech manuals can be.
That’s why I created an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide on how to set up a home network from scratch. Not just any home network but an Awesome Home Network with file sharing, backups, remote control, VPN access, a NAS, IP cameras, network printing, and more. With my Home IT Handbook, you can have the same mastery of your home network that the IT Guy does at work. It’s FREE so why not check it out and go from “Computer Novice” to “Home IT Guru?”
I get asked this question a lot. My answer is always the same, “That depends on your situation.” I say. The fact is there is no single “best wireless router” for everyone, just like there is no single “best car” for everyone. Everyone has individual needs, interests, and different-sized homes. That’s why I like to separate wireless routers into three common categories:
If money is a concern it’s possible to find a great wireless router for under $100. Features such as dual bands, USB ports for file and printer sharing, Gigabit switch ports, QoS, and advanced WiFi security have all become standard in most routers. Now even more advanced features such as MU-MIMO support and Beamforming can be found on many affordable routers.
The demands of video streaming and online gaming can drag a wireless network down quickly if you’re router doesn’t have enough horsepower to handle it. It’s times like this when Tri-Band support, QOS, and multiple, fast processors come into play. Several wireless router manufacturers have stepped up to the plate and designed awesome wireless routers for gaming.
They call me “Jerry” or “JJ.” I’ve been a Tech Support Technician for over 25 years. I’m also a regular guy who likes sports, good food, cracking jokes, and hanging out with friends. In my day-to-day life, I enjoy making technology more understandable for people. I love being there when the “light goes on” and a person suddenly “gets it.” Learning computer networking opened a whole new world for me and I’d like to share that world with my subscribers and everyone who downloads my Free eBook.
WiFi Guy.net is not just another “shopping site.” It’s designed to help you find the right technology for your situation without overspending. The Home IT Handbook takes it a step further by helping you set it all up. Soon I’ll be cranking out home networking videos on my Youtube Channel to compliment both.
