Wireless Network Support – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
- How can you improve your slow, spotty wireless internal network connections?
- How can you provide Wi-Fi hotspots for your customers without security risks?
- Is your old router slowing down your connection speed?
The past few years have seen a revolution in computer network technology. At every Minnesota and national company, many employees now rely on laptops, notebooks, tablets and mobile devices for much of their work. In addition, many companies are providing flexible work locations for their employees. The devices they use all connect to the company’s network system wirelessly. No Ethernet cables are involved. That’s the reality, and IT support staff must provide broadband wireless access throughout the business location. An additional development is the increasing need of businesses to provide Wi-Fi internet access to their customers and visiting vendors when they are on the premises. All of this access is important, but this new way of connecting all computers is not without concerns. Chief among those issues is security.

Secured Connections and Defense Against Attacks
Try this experiment to help you understand the security problem of wireless network access: Using your notebook computer or smart phone while in any coffee shop or office building, look at the wireless network availability. Most likely, you’ll see dozens of connections. Most are password protected, to prevent unauthorized access. How secure is that password protection? Our technicians and engineers know that many of those connections are very poorly protected, often using an easily broken default password provided by the router hardware. When we install a network for our clients, we not only control access via an unbreakable password. We also provide additional network isolation to prevent unauthorized access. Without that high level of protection, your data and network access are at enormous risk. Haphazard security isn’t acceptable.
Unique Risks for Wi-Fi Hotspots
Today, customers expect to be able to connect to the internet via a Wi-Fi connection wherever they are. From waiting rooms in medical offices and auto repair shops to conference rooms in your offices where vendor presentations are made, making those connections is a must. Typically, logging on to such Wi-Fi access uses a simple password that is given to anyone who needs access. Here is a mistake many companies make that poses an enormous security risk: They simply add a Guest logon password account to an existing router. With extensive security configurations, that can work, but it’s not the best practice.
Instead, using a separate wireless router that is isolated completely from your network and connecting it to a separate internet connection is the best and simplest practice. By isolating the router hardware completely, rather than just trying to secure an account on your main router, impenetrable security is relatively easy to establish. Our technicians and engineers will assist you in implementing a secure Wi-Fi hotspot for your business. Why take any chances?
