Wireless networks: Troubleshooting common issues

wireless networks

Let’s say you are a small business owner. You have customers and clients coming and going and you know they want – and need – wireless networks.

In this day and age, no one wants to be anywhere without access to a wireless network, because business doesn’t stop when you are at a café, a doctor’s office, the library or your kid’s sporting event.

Guest access to wireless networks is something that every small business owner needs to consider – and offer. But it isn’t as simple as giving a password and saying “good luck.” As a small business owner, you need to provide your customers and clients a SAFE wireless network.

So, what do you need to know? Here are ways to troubleshoot some common issues.

Keep ‘em separated

One of the main things we hear is that clients don’t properly separate guest access from the access they give employees. This is a risk, because someone meaning to do your business harm could access confidential information and data by breaching the network.

It’s wise to keep them segregated, even if it’s usually more of a headache to set up and maintain.

Security

Everyone wants a safe browsing experience, right? And while you can’t keep it 100% perfect, you should do your best to set up a secure wireless network for your customers and clients. You can do this by hiring IT professionals to handle the details and maintaining your systems so you can focus on running your business – and keeping clients happy.

Speed

If you are a service oriented small business, like a restaurant or office where clients spend more than a few minutes, offering safe, reliable and FAST wireless networks will set you apart from the pack.

The fact is, people are constantly working nowadays and if they are at your place of business taking care of personal (or professional) needs, they NEED access to their data – and fast.

Make sure you aren’t shortchanging your customers and clients because they will look elsewhere.
