Here are some comments from Grant:

“We had had no internet service for three days over the weekend Paul arrived on time, and gave updates via SMS to his arrival time, was approachable and helpful on arrival, and quickly asessed and worked on fixing the problem. On completion of the problem Paul ensured that all devices in the house were functional , and that we were happy with the resolution before departing. I would definately recommend Paul for his professionalism, his patience and concern for rectifing successfully the problem that we had . Well done Paul.”

Recently I helped Grant from East Fremantle with a tricky internet connection problem. He had a brand new belkin modem that wasn’t playing ball at all – it was a Belkin N600 DB or N750 db modem. After trying to get the modem working without success I installed my tester modem which is always with me (part of any good mobile computer repair service is to carry a spare). My modem worked fine with no problems, so we then installed a new one I had on-hand and the problem was solved, we installed a TP Link wireless N adsl2+ modem with NBN ready functions.

One of the tricky things in this situation was the Foxtel had a netcomm powerline networking adapter connected to the same power board which could have been messing with the modem a bit as the power surges regularly on those. So I setup the power line networking device on a separate power outlet and after a few minutes the network was alive in the house and Foxtel was working with no problems.
