We have over 25 years experience visiting homes in Cardiff, working with computers, from programming, fixing, repairing, removing Spyware to connecting to all types of networks.
Today we specialise in solving WI-Fi Internet connection problems.
The Wi-Fi router provided by your Broadband or Cable Internet provider will only usually reach into the next room and be non existent or too weak beyond into the rest of your home. Very often, your router is located next to an outside wall, on the edge of your home, often in a corner, because this is the easiest place to connect to your phone line or cable connection. It is also the worst place to position a Wi-Fi router and for this reason most homes have unsatisfactory Wi-Fi in their home. Wi-Fi routers should be positioned in the centre of your home. Even build new homes don't have their cable broadband outlet position next to a power socket in the centre of the house!
No. The power of domestic Wi-Fi routers is set to go no further than 200 feet in an ideal situation such as being outside in an open space. When you add a wall or furniture or even people between the Wi-Fi router and where you need to connect to that Wi-Fi, the Wi-Fi may go no further than 10 feet and never reach the rest of your home. Beware of products that claim to be more powerful. There are plenty of misleading Wi-Fi products that claim to be more powerful, but they are not.
Very often these are not easy to setup and most are old technology that don't work reliably with new technology devices such as new phones, tablets or streaming devices. The biggest issue is knowing what system will work best for your home and then the precise positioning to make the system work to match your expectation. Beware of any advertising claims that list Ease of Use or Simple to Install. These devices can be difficult and problematic to setup for anyone not familiar with setting them up. We have installed literally 100's of these systems in the Cardiff area.
When your Internet provider such as BT, Virgin Media, SKY, etc., tests your router remotely, i.e. when you phone them and they run a test on your line, they only test the delivery of the internet to your router. They do NOT test the Wi-Fi to be functioning correctly and they cannot test it to see if you have Wi-Fi throughout your home. We can test this for you in your home and even report the fault to your provider on your behalf.
Absolutely not. We do not drill holes in any walls as there is no need for this. We only use wireless systems.

Computerhomefix sorted out our internet wifi and now the whole family can watch their own Netflix in their own rooms. Very happy indeed.
Clare - Cardiff Bay
The internet in our house has always been unreliable at best and unusable at worst. After a home survey Computerhomefix installed some devices and we have never looked back. So happy to finally have everything working properly.
Dr Jenkins - Penarth
After spending hours and hours on the phone to our broadband internet supplier, we called in Computerhomefix to see if they could improve the internet around our large house and also to get it in the garden. They spent about an hour and got everything working.
Mike P - St Mellons
We now have fast internet wifi in every room and it just works all the time. Best of all is that I don't need to keep calling my internet provider on the phone all the time, getting more and more stressed!
Fiona - Pontcanna
Computerhomefix fixed our wifi and also removed Sypware from our PC to get everything working. Highly recommended.
Diana - Roath Park
Our home wifi was not reliable in our office pod situated in our garden. Computerhomefix setup a proper extender system to give full cover in the outside office and we can now use Zoom without any buffering and enjoy uninterrupted internet throughout the home.
Tom - Lisvane
Super Wifi in every room now and even up in the loft room. We wasted a lot of time not getting this all sorted out earlier.
