How to Set Up a Network for Your Business

Networking Your Workspace is Essential

Networking lets you communicate locally with other computers on the same local network as well as globally. The complexity increases if you decide that some links in your network will be made wirelessly. There are different options available for all budgets. There are pros and cons to using wireless or installing data cabling. Read more below.

Choose a Wireless Router

You can’t have a home or small office network without a router. For most small offices and home offices, a local cable or phone company ISP (Internet Service Provider) is sufficient as they usually offer speedy cable modem or DSL connections.

It’s worth asking for a business accout rather than a home account if possible. Business clients usually have access to higher quality services as well as customer support helplines. More resources.

Data Cabling

A laptop, desktop, or other device transmits data faster over a data cable connection than a wireless connection. Fibre Optic cables are the fastest available. You also get increased bandwidth and optimum data transfer quality, even over longer distances. If you’re interested in Fibre Optic Installation for your business click here for more information.

Look at running at least two cables to each location. Installing multiple cables from A to B will only cost a small amount more than running one cable and it’s good to have the extra ports for  expansion in the future.

Install Switches and Hubs

A typical router has four Ethernet ports for wiring computers, storage devices and servers. If your network setup requires additional ports, you can purchase a switch which wires to a router. Click here for more internet services.

Don’t Forget the Printer

A network-connected printer with scanner and photocopier is a essential for any office. Most printers these days come with built-in Wi-Fi, but we recommend investing in a model with Ethernet connectivity. Ethernet is generally easy to set up and offers a more reliable connection than wireless alone. Click here for more about wireless digital gear.
