Internet Services

Internet Services for Business and Home Internet, email, firewalls, modem and router setup.

Nexwrx will come to your home to setup your internet, email, modem or routers. We can setup VPNs, Printers or other peripherals on your network. Whether you want to share media with the whole family or be able to access your business network from home, Nexwrx can have you operational in a matter of an hour.  We can direct you in what types of technology will work best for your home and we realize that most companies share the same business hours. We make our schedule around your needs.

Setting up a home network

Before you start: To decide what type of network to set up or to find out what hardware and cables you need, see What you need to set up a home network. That topic has information about the different types of networks (also known as network technologies), as well as hardware requirements for each type.
Once you know what type of network you want and have the necessary hardware, there are four possible steps to take (two of these are not always required):
  1. Install any necessary hardware.
  2. Set up an Internet connection (optional).
  3. Connect the computers.
  4. Run the Set Up a Wireless Router or Access Point wizard (wireless only).
Each of these steps is described in detail later in this article.
Start by setting up one computer. Once you set up the network and you are sure that the first computer is working correctly, you can add additional computers or devices.

Install the hardware

Install network adapters in any computers that need them. (Follow the installation instructions in the information that came with each adapter.)

Set up or verify an Internet connection (optional)

You don't need an Internet connection to set up a network, although most people want to use their network to share an Internet connection. To set up an Internet connection, you need a cable or DSL modem and an account with an Internet service provider (ISP). Then open the Connect to the Internet wizard and follow the instructions. For more information, see What do I need to connect to the Internet?

If you already have an Internet connection, you just need to verify that the connection is working. To do that, open your web browser and go to a website that you don't usually visit. (If you go to a website that you visit often, some of its webpages might be stored on your computer and will display correctly even if your connection is faulty.) If the website opens and you don't get any error messages, your connection is working. 

Connect the computers

There are several ways to connect computers—the configuration depends on the type of network adapters, modem, and Internet connection that you have. It also depends on whether or not you want to share an Internet connection among all the computers on the network. 

Turn on all computers or devices, such as printers, that you want to be part of your network. If your network is wired Ethernet or HPNA, it should be set up and ready to use. You should test your network (see below) to make sure that all computers and devices are connected correctly.

Run the Set Up a Wireless Router or Access Point wizard

If your network is wireless, run the Set up a Wireless Router or Access Point wizard on the computer attached to the router.
  • Open Set Up a Wireless Router or Access Point by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, and then clicking Network and Sharing Center. In the left pane, click Set up a connection or network, and then click Set up a wireless router or access point.
    The wizard will walk you through the process of adding other computers and devices to the network. For more information, see Add a device or computer to a network.

Test your network

It's a good idea to test your network to make sure that all of the computers and devices are connected and working properly. To test your network, do the following on each network computer: Click the Start button and then click Network. You should be able to see icons for the computer you are on and all of the other computers and devices that you have added to the network. If the computer you are checking has a printer attached, the printer icon might not be visible on other computers until you enable printer sharing. (Printer sharing is not available on Windows Vista Starter.)

Just received a check for $500.

Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can make by taking paid surveys online...

So I took a video of myself actually getting paid $500 for doing paid surveys to finally set the record straight.
