Here in Sacramento, we like everything to run together smoothly. It helps us all keep our busy lives in order and makes our entertainment and relaxing time more pleasant. It can be frustrating sometimes when your devices don’t talk to each other the way they should.

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
Smartphone, Tablet, Game Console Integration Sacramento
So you’ve got your Smartphone, your tablet, and your game console (well, maybe your kids have one) – a pretty good start to a digital life in Sacramento, right? Well yeah – it’s a good start, but wouldn’t you like to know how you can make it even better?
If you’ve got more than one computer, chances are that you want to be able to print from your printer from any of them. It’s no fun when you have to drag your laptop over to your printer, unplug it from your desktop, and plug it into your laptop before you can print. I mean, at that point you might as well drag your laptop to your Sacramento Kinko’s to get the document printed off. Wouldn’t it be better if you could just connect to one printer from anywhere you wanted? Heck, it would be great if you could actually just put the printer or fax in a central location without even having it be hardwired to a computer. That’s called networking.
If you'd like to access your home computer from work to grab a file you forgot to transfer before you left, we can help set that up for you. It's even possible to print something from any computer to your home computer so it's ready for you when you get home. We're happy to answer any questions you may have when it comes to remotely accessing other computers.
Before we start, I’d like to make a note about the word “troubleshooting.” Back when the U.S. was a loose confederation of states and Sacramento was just a wagon town, the word “troubleshoot” came into use. It meant that when something was giving you trouble, you’d take it and…
Files were designed to be shared. Your documents and family photos wouldn’t be of much use if you were the only one who could see them. At the same time, you don’t always want everyone to see everything on your computer. Wouldn’t it be great if you could set up some way to be able to share the files that you wanted to and hide the rest? That way, you could share your files with friends and family, access your personal documents from any of your web-enabled or networked devices, and generally keep all your files in better order with multiple computers!
You live in Sacramento – a very connected city. So let’s say you’re looking into transitioning into the digital age and connecting everything you own so that it plays well together. You may already have a computer, or a Smartphone, or even a TV. You may even have all of these already, but what you need now is to setup a home network. Setting up a home network is one of the easiest ways to make your technology easier to work with. All these devices were designed to play with each other over a network.
