Yeah, I know. But after fixing what geeksquad or *shudder* Staples breaks over and over (usually for free because I am easy) I just had to throw that in. My favorite customer quote: IT CAN'T BE BROKEN, IT MUST BE YOUR SERVICE! STAPLES FIXED IT!!! In this case, I was being blamed for a printer

If you setup a router, it's pretty much a guarantee that you'll be setting up a couple notebooks and a PC as well. Perhaps also a tivo, xbox, ps3, ipod touch, printer, and who knows what else. You should also provide good documentation, because you're on the hook whenever they want to add

Same here. Free if they provide it. $75 including router is we do it. Why, because we want it secured so the neighbors can't have my service for free, so we can password it so they can't screw it up, and we also turn on remote management so we can help them remotely if we want to. I watch the

We provide a wireless router for free as part of the install. We started doing that over 5 years ago. We also setup all their computers (either cable or wireless) for free (except the cost of the wireless USB adapters). That's what makes us different than the cableco or telco. :) Travis

Free if they bring it in. Free to try to talk them through it on phone. If they can wait tell we are in there area and have time just a small charge. Special trip equals service call. Never sell routers anymore if we can help it! Nothing like selling one to someone 30 miles away and when it
