Wireless Router Troubleshooting & Repair
Wi-Fi is great when it works, but it can be difficult to fix issues unless you’re an expert in IT networking.
Some common home network problems we see as IT technicians in New Jersey include:
- Slow speeds, lagging, and buffering
- Problems with streaming video
- Video calls freezing or disconnecting
- Devices not connecting to router or randomly disconnecting
- No Wi-Fi signal or low signal in some areas of your home
- Security breaches and unauthorized access (stolen Wi-Fi password)
- Printers and other devices not connecting to the network
Whatever problem you’re having with wireless networking at home, we can help. Just fill out our contact form to explain the problem and one of our technicians will get back to you to schedule Wi-Fi network servicing at your home.
Why Install Home Wi-Fi?
If you’re still relying on old-school ethernet cables for your internet connection at home or you’re using the data plan on your cell phone, you may be wondering if it’s worth investigating Wi-Fi hookup for your home.
Wireless router installation offers many benefits, including:
- No messy cables trailing from room to room
- The option to use your laptop from anywhere without needing to plug into the network
- Faster, cheaper, and more stable connection than relying on a 4G or 5G network
- Easily share files, printers, and other devices between multiple computers, tablets, and mobile phones
- Superior encryption technology to protect your files and data from hackers
Sometimes it can be handy to have the option of an ethernet connection too. For example, if you play games online competitively, a wired connection may offer small improvements in lag and buffering. If this would be useful for you, our technicians can install a hybrid network solution that offers both wired ethernet connection and Wi-Fi.
Wifi Mesh Installation in New Jersey
If the Wi-Fi coverage on your property is spotty or you’re finding yourself needing to move closer to the router on video calls, you could benefit from installing mesh Wi-Fi.
A home Wi-Fi mesh network uses multiple Wi-Fi nodes to offer a single network with better coverage. Setting up mesh Wi-Fi is a better solution than using Wi-Fi extenders and multiple routers as you don’t need to connect to different Wi-Fi points as you move around your home.
If you want to set up mesh Wi-Fi, it’s best to call in a professional. Networking can be complex, and our in-home networking technicians are skilled, efficient, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The best setup for mesh Wi-Fi depends on the layout of your home, how many devices are using the network, and several other factors. Our technician will assess your property on visiting and design a network setup to best suit your needs.

Why did my wifi suddenly stop working?
If your Wi-Fi has suddenly stopped working, the first thing you should try is restarting your router. This will often fix the issue. If you’re just having problems on one of your devices, try rebooting the device or moving closer to the router. If you’re still having problems, contact Dave’s computers to arrange a home visit from one of our network technicians.
Why is my wifi router not working?
There are various reasons why your Wi-Fi router might have stopped working. It could be a software or hardware issue, a temporary problem with your internet problem, or something else. First check the lights on your router as red lights indicate a problem with your internet connection. If the lights don’t turn green after rebooting your router, contact your internet provider. If your provider says there are no issues, contact the team at Dave’s computers for advice.
Why is my Wi-Fi slow?
The speed of your Wi-Fi connection may be affected by your distance from the router, interference from electronics such as microwaves or cell phones, viruses, spyware, too many people or devices sharing the connection, and many other factors. To diagnose the problem and find solutions, find a reputable network technician to give you further advice.
What causes Wi-Fi signal issues?
Interference from electronics such as microwaves, cell phones, and bluetooth devices can affect your Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi networks closeby may also cause interference. Physical obstacles such as walls, doors, and furniture can also affect your Wi-Fi signal.
Why is my Wi-Fi cutting in and out?
If you’re moving around, your wi-fi signal may be interrupted if you’re too far from the router or separated by walls or other obstacles. Interference from electrical devices or problems with your internet provider are also potential causes of unstable Wi-Fi.
How much does it cost to install Wi-Fi at home?
The cost of home Wi-Fi installation will depend on the size and layout of your home, and whether you opt for a simple Wi-Fi network with a single router or mesh Wi-Fi installation.
