When you hire a network administrator, he or she will solve any issues that may arise within the scope of your computer network. Typically, this falls into the scope of installing, configuring and monitoring computer and system functionality to ensure and/or improve the performance of your operating system. These individuals are paramount in ensuring your business activities, on a technological level, are getting done. If your business operations have expanded, it may be time to discuss with this individual how to increase storage capacity. Maybe you have detected a decrease in operating efficiency or noticed a spark emit from the server; these are all indications that your computer’s operating system has been impaired, and your business information is at risk.
Without the full operational capacity of your computer, expanding your business will grind to a halt and at that point, due to several factors, it could be too late. At Up and Running Computer Solutions, we are dedicated the continual maintenance and improvement of your network so you can be dedicated to expanding it.
When the time comes for your company to grow, you will need to invest in a computer networking system. This way, everyone can connect to the same files and communicate at optimum levels. Unfortunately, it isn’t the easiest thing to get this system up and running. A network is a complex with loads of moving pieces. And because so many components make your business run smoothly, these issues need to be remedied as soon as possible. Here are some of the more common issues you may face. Getting familiar with clues to watch out for will help get everything back up quickly and efficiently…
Slow connection. Is there anything worse? Many times, files are the culprit in these instances. Limit the file size to less than 20mb. If your network cards are faulty, this will slow down things, so make sure you become familiar with this option as well.
IP conflicts. As a general rule of thumb, each PC should have their own IP address. If duplication happens, try restarting the router.
Printer issues. When lots of computers use the same printer, there may be a time where the printer won’t allow a PC to connect. Check the firewall settings and network adaptors.
Bad cables. Let’s face it. Cables get messed up over time. Connections get loose or damaged, and this could cause issues within the network. Make sure to schedule maintenance for all of your wiring and cables as well as the PCs themselves.
Wifi signal issues. Weak wifi signals can definitely drag production. It could be the layout of the office or something blocking your signal. If that isn’t the issue, make sure your firmware is up to date.
