Cable Modems are usually the fastest connection to the internet that is available for home use.  Most cable modems connect between 1.2 to 1.8 megs.  Some services are only 800k.  Some, even higher.  No matter what your connection is, you will love the speed you get.

Home/Office Networking

   

When you get a cable modem connection, you may run into a problem: Everyone in your house will want to use it. And so to preserve domestic harmony, you'd be wise to connect, or "network," all your home's computers. Why? So that everyone can connect to your new broadband connection at the same time. The process isn't without headaches, but the payoff is worth it.

Home/Office Networking: Benefits

Until recently, home-networking approaches -- patchwork solutions at best -- were riddled with bugs and expensive. They also required new wiring and a Ph.D. in networking. Things, however, have changed. Today's home-computer users can choose from several relatively inexpensive options to create reliable, cohesive networks that deliver several benefits:

bulletHousehold members can access the Internet at the same time using one Internet service provider (ISP) account.
bulletEach household member can share the same printers, modems and peripherals from any computer in the house.
bulletKids can play video games against each other, as well as with other out-of-the-house online users, on the Internet.
bulletCable modem and Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) connections not only deliver the fastest Internet links, but let household members talk on the phone while they're online.

To get started with basic home networking, you must physically connect your computers, and then give those computers access to the Internet through a cable or DSL modem. There are several ways to connect computers:
bulletEthernet, which is the most widely used networking technology.
bulletUniversal Serial Bus, which is easier to use than Ethernet if your computers already have USB ports.
bulletHome Phone Line Networking (HPN), which is useful for connecting computers scattered throughout the house.
bulletWireless networking products, which are attractive if you want to surf the Web from any room in the house using a laptop.
bulletPower-line home-networking products connect devices using power outlets in your home.


What can I connect to a home network?

Your computer and any peripherals you'd like to share, like a printer or scanner. Home networking also can be used to connect your stereo, burglar alarm, lights and other appliances. More networkable products are being introduced every month.

Who will connect my computers together?

Axiom Networking is the solution.  Increase your speed and productivity with the convenience of a smoothly running computer network. We can install either a wired system in your home or set-up a wireless network for more freedom.
