Frontier just completed upgrading the clubhouse DSL to an Ethernet Virtual Circuit (commercial-type DSL service). This new internet platform provides a more stable service (less interruptions) and increased internet speeds. You can connect to the internet from the clubhouse with an ethernet cable in the computer room or connect to the wireless network. For wireless, choose WMVV in your device WIFI settings. It will automatically show in your network choices and does not require a password.
Because the new service is more stable, loss of connectivity is not expected to happen often. However, if you’ve confirmed your device is set up correctly to access internet and still have a problem connecting, notify HOAMCO at 928-537-1067, x1404. HOAMCO will, then, contact our IT resource and/or Frontier. IMPORTANT! The internet can no longer be reset with the modem that was underneath the computer room cabinet. That modem has been disconnected and removed.
For those of you wondering about adding internet throughout the community. Sparklight (previously Cable One) did a site study in 2018 and responded that the site was “unserviceable.” Construction costs to bring cable to the location were estimated to be between $20,000 to $30,000. Frontier would also have to add infrastructure that would be costly to the Association and determined to be cost-prohibitive in the past. Individuals have found wireless solutions that fit their needs. Two companies are HughesNet for satellite internet and Wi-Power.
We hope this upgraded service will enhance your clubhouse internet experience.
