How Do I Fix Heavy Mirrors and Shelves?

There is no easy answer to this.

Most common, heavy items are Flat Screen Televisions and mirrors.

If you live in a coventional ‘brick built home’ than most “Heavy Duty Fixings” will do the job for you.

Simply, drill a hole to right size – and insert the fixing, screw in the right size screw.

You’ll need something like a “rawlplug” which is a brand name. Most DIY stores sell their own fixings, and these are colour coded for light, medium and heavy duty applications. For a mirror or TV you will need as least at medium fixing.

If you own a modern home with plasterboard walls – a light tap and they sound hollow. Means you will need a different approach.

Depending on how much the item weighs and your walls will dictate the best way.

This article shows a couple of options and is well worth a read if you are going to DIY.

Home WiFi Problems / Home Working Wifi – slow connection speeds ?

Fed up with slow home WiFi?

Had enough of a slow speed connection?

With more and more of us working from home and with the children also drawing on the house bandwidth – everything may seem to be happening at a far slower speed than it should.

Perhaps, you have a home office that is not getting the internet speeds you need.

There are some things you can do.

Firstly, pop over to this website and do a “WiFi Test” to see how your actual WiFi connection is doing. You should be getting at least 20mbps download. If you are not, then you’ll need to take some action.

So, do this next.

  1. Move the router – the box that connects to the telephone socket. Try and move it to a clear space, not behind the sofa or the TV – then run the test again.
  2. Try the test on your phone/tablet or laptop, see if you get the same readings.
  3. Reboot the router, turn it off. Disconnect the power for at least ten seconds and at the same time hold down the power the button. This is a ‘hard reset on the router’. Let it spark back in to life and then do the WiFi Test again.

If your connection has not improved, then you will need some help.

I offer a fixed price, I come to you service to solve all of these Home WiFi faults.

If I don’t fix the problem there will be no charge.

It could be problem in home something interfering with the wireless network. Or it could be technical fault.

It maybe something outside that is affecting your overall signal.

Your options are pretty straightforward.

  1. Change settings/location/cabling
  2. Change/Alter/ Adapt hardware- router/cables
  3. Install repeaters around the house (either mains or mesh

There is no need to put up with it.

Provided you live/work in the Crawley/Horsham/Horley areas then I can come out. Make some checks and give you my very best advice.

No charge for call out.

Get in touch today for a Home WiFi Check and Report. I can also help you with business WiFi problems or if you a building that home office and want to talk about the options.
