TBI Computer Moves From Westport to Norwalk
Posted on March 12, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TBI COMPUTER MOVES FROM WESTPORT TO NORWALK
Southern Fairfield’s Top-Rated Apple Experts Find Bigger Space
NORWALK, CT – TBI Computer (www.tbicomputer.com), the region’s top Apple Authorized Service Provider and Reseller, has moved down the road to Norwalk after over 20 years in Westport.
“We were comfortable with where we were, but we outgrew the space (a converted house at 52 Post Road West),” says owner Judy O’Meara, who first launched TBI in 1993. “We found a much bigger, more versatile space (181 Westport Avenue) which has a great storefront on the street,” explains O’Meara. “We’re getting the kind of space that makes it easier to offer more classes and to spread out and better serve our existing clients and the new ones we expect to see in 2014.” The new location is near Stew Leonard’s.
TBI has experienced solid growth in recent years with its small business account base, and those businesses need more onsite training and support. The new space will help TBI’s staff be more efficient in doing repair services. The large storefront windows combined with high ceilings and white color scheme make product displays visually stunning.
“One very important factor in making this decision was the convenience of our Westport clients,” says O’Meara. “It’s only two miles south of the old location and easy to find. There’s no way we were going to move any farther than that because we value these clients so much. We love Westport and the many friends we’ve made there, and we want to stay close by!”
TBI offers a wide range of current Apple products for sale, as well as consulting services for businesses and individuals covering any aspect of home and business computing. For further information, go to TBI’s website (www.tbicomputer.com) or call (203) 222-1878.
Wireless Setup Basics
Posted on March 6, 2014
by Steve Goethner, Onsite Technician, TBI Computer
Good coverage in your house starts with the placement of the internet modem because the router typically goes next to it. The best place is high, middle of the house, second or third floor and centered. The 2 worst places are the basement, especially in a corner, and the kitchen.
The signal does not go through metal, stone, brick, etc. Appliances like the refrigerator, microwave, dryer, also mess up the signal.
Most routers are called dual band. This means that they can have a network running at 2.4 GHz and another network running at 5 GHz. Out of the box, the networks are blended together. I recommend changing the settings to have 2 separate networks and then use the 2.4 GHz. In theory, the 5 GHz is faster, but I find that the 2.4 GHz goes through the walls better. And, unless your modem connection is over 30 Mbps, the 2.4 GHz is fast enough to keep up.
For any other questions, call us at TBI Computer and we’ll be happy to help you work out the details!
We are Moving!
Posted on February 21, 2014
Do you know what is happening on March 1st this year? Have you read your horoscope? Have you perused the internet? You may not find this event anywhere except at TBI Computer.
We are moving! We have a date! March 1st. Although everything is subject to change, we hope this event won’t be one of them. I happened to notice there is a New Moon on March 1st which I find auspicious. A new moon symbolizes new beginnings and I can’t think of a better time to move than that.
We look forward to seeing you in our new location.
181 Westport Avenue, Norwalk CT 06851
