Wired and Wireless Computer Network Installation & Maintenance
Networks are the core of a company’s IT, sometimes troublesome and to many a black art. I Want Routers have vast experience in unravelling issues on existing networks that don’t function as they should. This includes wireless which we have made a speciality as it requires fine tuning sometimes to make it perform optimally.
If you require an installation from scratch, including all the cabling, sockets, cabinets, wireless etc – we can install it for you according to your budget. If you need to improve an existing network – we are on ready to help.
Rest assured – we don’t rip out perfectly good and functioning devices that you would like to keep, installing all new and presenting you with an unnecessarily large bill. Occasionally all new is better, but this doesn’t happen very often. We work to our customers’ agenda, not ours, and always provide advice as needed along the way.
CAT 5 and 6 Infrastructure – Network Cabling
Structured cabling or if you like, running network cabling to wall/floor sockets and data cabinets that contain your network devices can be quite a lot of work and is best added during the refit of a premises. Sometimes electricians do this work as it’s very similar to running electric cables and is usually added in the same 2 phases. I Want Routers can work with electricians, or we can do this work for you whether one cable or one hundred cables.
This kind of infrastructure often takes some planning and starts with a survey of the premises taking in consideration the environment and what can be realistically done in a busy working environment or a new one as necessary. I Want Routers are able to install CAT 5 and 6 cabling, the data cabinets, their internal fittings, the sockets etc.
CCTV Installation & Maintenance
CCTV these days is just another network device using either cables, wireless or mobile broadband like 4 or 5g. Most business installations use cabled cameras with a central recording and control unit called a DVR or NVR where the older DVR (Digital Video Recorder) uses coaxial cables, and the newer NVR (Network Video Recorder) uses standard CAT 5 or 6 network cables. Sometimes a VR is a hybrid of both. Installing CCTV is like installing network Infrastructure.
We can install new and maintain existing CCTV systems.
There are some very good wireless systems these days. They are mainly aimed at the domestic market, but we have also used them in commercial situations where a more traditional wired system was not as suitable.
Cloud/Hosted Telephone Systems Installation & Maintenance
Old telephone lines are being phased out and if BT hits its targets, they will be gone by the end of 2025. The overwhelming replacement take up is for Cloud Telephony otherwise known as Hosted Telephony. It’s a much better system overall as it costs less and does more. There are backup options that you don’t have on the older lines so even if broadband isn’t always that reliable your telephones will still ring. This is the best and most flexible option for many situations. Its worth mentioning the Cloud Phones work in most countries for most systems; so, whether you are in the UK, the US or Australia they will still work and use the same phone numbers and cost the same, as if you were in the UK.
Cloud Telephony didn’t begin well, when broadband wasn’t at its best, it tended to be expensive and unreliable. But that’s not the case anymore, now it’s another cloud product that works well. You don’t need expensive engineers to adjust your phone systems anymore, you can do it yourself – support is only an email or phone call away. You or your company don’t need to maintain your phone system anymore as that’s all done by the phone provider.
There are still on premises phone systems out there, but they use phone lines over broadband and instead of paying £20,000 for a phone system control unit you might only pay £500. Of course, the cost of the telephones themselves can mount up but generally phone systems do cost much less than they used to.
If you have an older phone system some of the phone lines over broadband can be used.

Installation and Support of Broadband Connections
We install and support broadband, from old style ADSL2+ to leased lines. Our prices are competitive. We focus on support and are very picky about our suppliers as our support is only as good as our suppliers. We pay a lot of attention to the support side of things and do most of the legwork for you.
If you have had this experience: –
“It took us ages on the phone before we got to the right department and even then, they didn’t understand our issue. We spent hours over a week or 2 before they fixed it.”
Then we can take away a lot of the pain and will get your issue fixed faster. We’ll keep you updated too! We don’t pretend that dealing with the chain of command is always easy, it isn’t, but we know how to work the system because we have been doing it for many years.
I Want Routers can often find a backup solution while you are waiting for a broadband supply to be fixed. If your business is internet critical, then there are ways of reducing the chances of downtime.
