3rd Party Contractors:

Computer Cures is not liable for any disputes that arise between the 3rd parties and the customer. This can include disputes over job costings/quotes, property damage, or incorrectly installed equipment.

WIFI/Networking:

  1. WIFI equipment and installations can have interference from the following: microwave ovens, 4G/5G cell phone towers, neighbouring WIFI signals, building and construction materials, such as metal bars, metal sheeting, double brick, concrete, tiles, water, swimming pools, certain paints, etc.
  2. Computer Cures recommends that all networking and wifi installations include hardwiring/data cabling all equipment. Our WIFI systems are designed to work on ethernet cabling. If you decide to forgo ethernet cabling and use a ‘Mesh-Uplink’ system, this will decrease performance and can make the system unstable. Computer Cures is not responsible for any poor performance of a mesh-uplink system (as we do not recommend the system being installed in this way)
  3. Computer Cures is not responsible for any internet related dropouts. This includes, (but is not limited to) faults with your NBN connection, NBN maintenance in your area, faulty (ISP provided) modems or poor speeds from your internet provider. Computer Cures may assist in the fault finding and diagnosis, however there will be a charge of $150 per hour.
  4. Computer Cures is not responsible for any (existing or newly installed) ethernet cabling or wall sockets. Any issues with cabling must be dealt with the original contractor that did the cabling installation. Computer Cures may assist in the fault finding and diagnosis, and even recommend a contractor to rectify any faults, however we will charge $150 per hour to investigate.
  5. Computer Cures does use testing equipment to screen for any data socket or cabling faults. These screening tests may not be 100% accurate and may require a follow up visit by a registered data cabler or electrician for further testing.
  6. All wifi installations are a ‘Best Effort’ service, this means we cannot guarantee the final wifi speeds you will receive due to double brick walls, concrete and the size your property. Our initial wifi audit and assessment will take this into consideration, however there will be some speed drop due to double brick walls, and distance between wifi units.
  7. Computer Cures is not responsible for any poor performance related to 3rd party software suppliers, such as CISCO Webex, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and any other online software. (this also includes any outages of the above software)
  8. Computer Cures is not responsible for any software or firmware updates performed by a customer after the final installation of a wifi/network system. We do not recommend performing any further software updates, as newer firmware may be unstable and causes future issues with your system.
  9. Computer Cures does not recommend the use of ‘powerline adapters’, these units are prone to dropping out and can give unstable speeds. In the event a customer is using powerline adapters, we give no warranty and we highly recommend hard wiring/ethernet cabling as a reliable alternative.

Cancellations:

  1. If you give us less than 24 hours’ notice to cancel an onsite service, we may charge you a cancellation fee of $75, as we lose the ability to service other customers, and incur expenses.
