A network in your home keeps everything right at your fingertips! You might have a TV or DVD player that connects to the internet, multiple computers, a Smartphone, a tablet, or one of a myriad of connected devices which all keep your house running at the speed of the world we live in today. In Portland, we know that keeping everything running efficiently is the key to a modern life. Our technology keeps our busy lives all going smoothly, and it helps us relax at the end of a long day, whether we’re kicking off our shoes in front of the TV or wasting away our lives endlessly scrolling on the internet. Sometimes all our devices just don’t talk together like they should, for example we want to transfer those pictures we just took that capture the beauty of Portland, but our home network isn’t working properly. Sometimes we want to record our favorite shows on our computer to watch later, but the two devices aren’t talking to each other.
This is where we ride in and save the day. Nerds On Call makes all your devices play together the way they were designed to. If you need a wireless printer hooked up, we can do that for you. If you want to show off your vacation pictures on your TV from your iPad, we can show you how to make that work. Home networks are so much more than just home networks these days – they connect everything even when we’re not in our home. It’s part of being in the modern connected world. We don’t want you to have to spend half your time just playing catch-up with a buggy network. We can set your network up for you, troubleshoot an existing one, and attach printers, scanners, home theatre systems, or toasters to your network. Wait…is that possible? It could be if it has a USB connection…
We can also set up networks of Apple products, from iPads to iPhones to iMacs to iBalls – we network it all. You have technology and we make it talk; we’re diplomatic in that way.
So give us a call or a click below to chat with the friendly Nerds who live right here in Portland who can get your home network set up just the way you want it to be!

Questions nerds often hear about Home Networking
Why is my internet not working?
There can be many reasons for this. Sometimes it's a problem with the modem and it just needs to be reset. Other times your internet service provider might be having technical difficulties.
Are the modem and router the same thing?
The modem is what provides your connection to the internet and the router provides the wifi signal. Sometimes they are combined into a single unit

So you’re working on a novel? That’s great. But don’t you hate it when you’re working at home on your desktop, typing away, and decide you need a coffee break, go to the local Portland Starbucks with your laptop, open it up, and realize that the latest version of your book is at home? It’s frustrating to be sure. Your last chapter is missing, your notes have old character names, and it’s generally not prudent to progress with your writing.
Do you have a printer at your Portland home? If so, do you use it with more than one computer? If you’ve been in this situation, you know the endless annoyance that can come with it. Oftentimes, when you want to print or fax something, you’ll have to reconnect the cable to whichever computer you want to print from. Do you only have a laptop and you’re tired of having to tether it to the printer every time you want a paper document. Faxing and printing in an age with all this technology shouldn’t be that difficult.
So you’ve got your home network all set up and it’s working great. Well, it was for the first week. The second week you couldn’t print. The third week your laptop couldn’t connect. By the end of the first month, you weren’t sure if you’d be able to check the news in the morning. Maybe you’ve tried to troubleshoot it yourself – gone into Portland, bought a new router, swapped it out, didn’t work. Maybe by now you’re reconsidering having let your son set it all up.
Smartphone, Tablet, Game Console Integration Portland
You’ve got your Smartphone, your tablet, maybe a computer or two, your game console, and possibly your refrigerator all hooked up to the internet. A lot of people have these devices these days, but not all of them are using them to their full capacity.
The city of Portland is getting more and more connected every day. Shouldn’t your home follow suit? You probably already have quite a few pieces of technology anyway: a Smartphone, a laptop, a desktop, or a tablet. Now is the time to make them all play together. The best way to do that is by setting up a home network! Click Read More to see a few of the things you’ll be able to do with a network in your home!
