Are you experienced
with the latest in wifi technology? Networking? Servers? Do you know someone who does this professionally?
We are having some issues.
The guest wifi here at SJV is not working at all - it may be time to revamp the system! We have repeaters around, yet the signal has never really gotten into the social hall very well – perhaps they need to be hardwired?
Our second computer in the office needs to be replaced – Maria would like some help choosing the right machine and has some questions about networking the 2 computers or possibly getting a ‘server’ to have common programs in one place but could be accessed from both computers.
If you have some solid experience/information yourself or the phone number of someone who does that could help with either/both of these issues, please contact Maria in the office. 206-567-4149. Thank-you!
