If you have more than one computer in your home, you quickly discover what a hassle it is to be shoved aside when someone else needs the printer--which happens to be attached to your PC. You're also probably tired of running up and down the stairs to transfer files using floppy disks. And no one likes fighting over the only computer with Internet access. No wonder you're interested in home networking.

But aside from family unity, there's also the little matter of comfort. Where would you rather answer important e-mail--in your home office, hunched over your desk, or in the living room, with your feet on the ottoman?
Better yet, how about out on the veranda while enjoying the sunshine? Sound appealing?
Then lets talk about wireless Internet sharing

Also you can

  • Share a single printer between computers
  • Use a single Internet connection
  • Share files such as images, spreadsheets and documents
  • Play games that allow multiple users at different computers
  • Send the output of a device like a DVD player or Webcam to your other computers
  • Make backups of all your important files


  1. High speed internet - (light-speed from Shaw is only $30.00 / month or less)
  2. Router - (this provides security from hackers, and shares the connections)
  3. Two or more network cards - (this is what the wires plug into)
  4. Cables between rooms - (installation can be left to the customer)

If you provide 2 computers with network cards built in;
We will provide the following:

  • 2 cables (10' and 50')
  • A 4 port router
  • House call for setup and testing

Starting at $199.00 your price will vary this is only a guide. Email us for more info

Computer security risks to home users
We use computers for everything from banking and investing to shopping and communicating with others through email or chat programs. Although you may not consider your communications "top secret," you probably do not want strangers reading your email, using your computer to attack other systems, sending forged email from your computer, or examining personal information stored on your computer.

We strongly recommend the use of some type of firewall product, such as a router or a personal firewall software package. Intruders are constantly scanning home user systems for known vulnerabilities. Network firewalls (whether software or hardware-based) can provide some degree of protection against these attacks.

All our networks are setup using a router instead of a hub. The router is more expensive but it will provide much better security than a hub.
