CanaryNet offer two home fitting options for connecting your property to the internet - the Basic System and the Total Wireless system. A site survey will be done before installation to ensure you can receive the best possible signal.
CanaryNet Basic System
This involves us installing a small waterproof box in a high point (such as your roof or wall) that contains a Nanostation M2 150mbps wireless receiver. Two cables will run from this box, one to a power supply and the other cable (ethernet) plugs directly into your PC's ethernet (RJ45) port. (see fig 1).
The cost of the Basic System fitted is €90.00 incl.
CanaryNet Total Wireless System
This is an upgrade to the Basic System and is our most popular installation option.
It includes the waterproof box with receiver installed outside your property, but inside the cables will be connected to a 300mbps Wireless N router which will send the signal around your home enabling you to connect with your wireless enabled devices. (see fig 2)
The internal system will be protected by 128bit WEP security to prevent unauthorized access. This is the most popular option as it gives you freedom to move around plus the option to connect a cable between the internal router and either a laptop or other device The cost of Total Wireless fitted is €125.00 incl.
How to Upgrade to Total Wireless
You can start with the Basic System and upgrade to Total Wireless at a later date.
To upgrade will only cost you €35.00 incl.
Without a CanaryNet Fitted system
If you do not have a Canarynet installation and are struggling to connect to the CanaryNet service* the most likely cause is that your wireless laptop is not receiving enough signal, there are several options open to you to resolve this.
1 :Use your laptop outside in the open air - the walls of buildings block the wireless signal if you are trying to connect WITHOUT a CanaryNet installation
2: Is to buy a more powerful USB powered wireless adaptor, of a good quality, ideally one that you can put outside for better range.
*CanaryNet can only guarantee a connection when using one of our Fitted Systems
After installation you only need to buy internet time as and when you need it.
