Home and Enterprise Wi-Fi Services
Wi-Fi has become increasingly important for the connected home as well as in the workplace. Customers expect enterprise Wi-Fi and the security that comes from it. Homes today with smart home and streaming technologies require a robust wireless network, as well. We can diagnose coverage issues and offer solutions to remove “dead spots” in your Wi-Fi coverage. We will customize a Wi-Fi coverage map for your home and business that will allow for maximum Wi-Fi reach. We can install and configure a variety of network Access Points, routers, and Wi-Fi mesh networks, including Cisco’s Meraki enterprise line of access points. We provide consultation to our clients on what type of Internet products, speed, devices each ISP provides. Bottom line: if you need fast, dependable Internet and Wi-Fi, we’ve got you covered.
Malware and Virus Removal
Our IT professionals will remove viruses, browser hijackers, and malware from your computer, server, or mobile device. Included in this service will be the removal of ineffective antivirus programs that we will replace with security software that protects your device, while not impacting its performance or speed. We can also provide solutions that will protect your data from ransomware. Whether it’s your business or home technology, we have the right cybersecurity solution for you.
Computer and Server Hardware Upgrades
Need to boost the performance of your device? We can upgrade virtually any component on your device. We specialize in upgrades that boost your device’s performance, including motherboards, memory, SSD hard drives, Wi-Fi 6, USB 3.2 ports, dual monitor upgrades, and more. Most upgrades can be done same day.
Hard Drive Failure and Data Recovery
We offer replacement services for failed computer or server hard drives. In most cases we provide a more resilient and better performing SSD hard drive. If data has been lost, we have had great success recovering data from the failed hard drive and restoring it to a new system. Our hard drive replacement is usually paired with our custom PC imaging service. This provides a bit-to-bit copy of your computer’s content that can be restored to the computer once the hard drive has been replaced. The benefit is you not only recover your data, but your printer, software, and other PC settings, as well.
Computer and Mobile Operating Systems Upgrades
Upgrading an operating system can increase the performance of your PC, MAC, or mobile device, but more importantly it provides security features and functionality that your previous operating system does not currently have. Whether it’s upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or Windows 11, we can upgrade your computer without any data loss. The same applies to Apple MacBooks, Apple IOS devices, and Android devices.
