Home Network

Interconnecting various devices such as computers, game systems, printers, and mobile devices to one another and the internet creates what is commonly known as a home network. Establishing a functional network requires two key components: a wireless modem or router and an internet connection.

There are multiple ways to set up a home network, depending on individual needs and preferences. Whether it's for data sharing, home automation, or other purposes, you can customise your network to suit your specific requirements.

One crucial aspect of network setup is ensuring adequate network security. While a good antivirus program is essential, it's worth noting that traditional antivirus software is becoming less effective. These programs typically scan through a database of known threats, attempting to identify and eliminate any malicious activity. However, the emergence of more advanced technologies, such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) software, offers a proactive approach to security. EDR solutions prevent attacks from reaching your computer (or "end point") and safeguard your entire home network from potential infections.

To better illustrate the importance of network security, one can compare a computer network to grocery home delivery. Just as you would be cautious about bringing contaminated fruit into your home to avoid spreading fruit flies, exercising caution regarding the information and devices you allow into your network is crucial for maintaining its safety.

Types of Home or Office Computer Networks

When it comes to home or office computer networks, two primary types exist: wired and wireless networks.
Wired networks employ Ethernet cables that connect devices throughout your home or office. These networks often provide faster and more reliable connections as they establish a direct link between devices, ensuring a steady flow of data.

On the other hand, wireless networks utilise a wireless router to connect devices without the need for cables. This type of network is preferred by many due to its convenience and flexibility. With a wireless network, you can connect devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and even guest devices, all without the hassle of physical cables running throughout your home or office.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need a VPN?
  • From a risk assessment perspective, no. The risk is that low of an attack to your network that a VPN would be warranted, it would be futile to spend the money.

    Big companies such as banks may not let you log in because of the VPN, as they cannot deem the connection ‘safe’ or local. They also make your PC slower by having to send the data to an offsite region (usually USA or other) then send it back to you again.

  • Do I need a Firewall?
  • From a risk assessment point of view, an attack is low but still not a no, as you would need to be specifically targeted. Antivirus programs have their own firewalls set up as well as the major sites you visit. A good AV will protect the end point (your computer), via a firewall.

  • Do I need AntiVirus on my phone or tablet?
  • Generally, no. Apple devices only allow Apple certified apps and the only way for a direct attack on your device would be from a website visited or a sketchy link clicked via a spam text or message.

  • Do I need a wireless extender?
  • It depends, if you are having Wi-Fi connectivity issues in your home network a wireless extender may help, however your extender won’t make your internet any better, it will only extend the Wi-Fi ‘bubble’ that you have within your home.

    Environmental issues (walls, microwaves etc can all affect the efficacy of a wireless extender anyway, so unless you have a clear open space, your internet connection is most likely the area you would want to improve.

  • How do I connect my printer to my home network?
  • Printers are renowned for being temperamental and tricky, however connecting your printer to your network shouldn’t be. You should be able to access your devices and printers in your PC or laptops control panel, from there you can search for your printer to connect it. Sometimes these devices don’t show up because there may be a driver that needs to be installed, prior to the connection, this is when it gets tricky. If you are having issues connecting your device or printer to your network, give us a call and a SuperTech can not only do this for you, but guide you on how to add more devices as you go.
