WiFi Setup, Routers, Speed Analysis & Optimization
Tech Lab can optimize your WIFI at your home or business. We also provide migration services if you’re moving and need WIFI at the new location. If you are experiencing a slow or unreliable connection, we can diagnose the issue and help you speed up your connection, resolve the bottleneck, or extend coverage.
Tech Lab is here to help you with all your WiFi needs including:
- Wifi setup & access
- Router Installation & configuration
- Internet speed analysis & performance optimization
- Connected smart devices
How We Help with WiFi
Need secure wireless access but the password is hard to remember? Or perhaps it isn’t and you’re concerned about unauthorized access? Have our technicians set up your WIFI access with the latest security and modern access techniques. We could set up a QR code so you don’t need to remember complex passwords.
If you already have WiFi but it doesn’t quite reach where you need it, no sweat. We can either install range extenders or add additional Access Points to increase coverage. Call us to schedule an evaluation and we’ll figure out what method will work best in your situation.
WiFi Router Installation and Configuration
Routers act as the gatekeeper between you and the rest of the world. An improperly configured device can open you up to attacks or on the flip side, completely block all communication when security is set so tight it’s like a noose. Configuring security in a router is as much an art as it is technical. Our staff is trained on “set it and forget it” technical methods so you aren’t continuously calling us to fix recurring problems over and over. We establish a stable foundation that your company can grow and rely upon. If you feel you keep re-addressing the same problems, perhaps it’s time to get a second opinion from one of our techs.
We have a variety of devices we support from basic home routers to layer 2 and layer 3 switches. We also support products with fail-over capability when you have multiple internet connections so if one goes down, your network remains online. Add to that firewall rules for custom routing and filtering, bandwidth monitoring, and simple security management and your network will remain online at all times.
Picture a long, straight, open road. You’re in your convertible and there’s no speed limit. You are racing along as fast as possible and you come upon a small town with no continuous roads, stop signs everywhere, and no obvious route through. Does your network traffic seem to slow down or stop? Eliminate the stops and upgrade with Tech Lab.
We remove bottlenecks and restore network flow. Bottlenecks can happen in ever-changing environments. One device needs to communicate with another device (like a PC/laptop connecting to a server, or a tablet connecting to a website or WiFi). Whether it’s over wireless or a wire, we analyze why something may noticeably slow down. Sometimes this involves special software to record traffic patterns and look at charts and reports over time, and in other instances, we can look at your network and trace the problem in minutes.
Does your internet time out? Is it laggy or slow? Your internet speed depends on your network resources or internet subscription, the number of connected devices, what you are doing, the age and type of devices, and the Wi-Fi signal strength. There are a lot of factors that affect speed. Perhaps you need to move your router. Tech Lab can help you identify which factors are slowing you down and help you optimize the internet speed.
Bottlenecks can also slow you down and we can help determine if this is happening to you. A bottleneck occurs when there is too much demand and too few resources. As more and more people stream online and work from home, this is a growing problem for Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
Maybe, you need to move your router, upgrade your router, use a wired connection rather than a wireless connection, upgrade to a fiber connection, or add a WiFi booster to extend your coverage.
Does your website work as hard for you as it possibly can? Over 45% of websites are visited via smartphones and mobile devices. If your website is not “responsive”, then you’re missing out on the number of visitors and revenue which a responsive website can bring you.
Many websites talk about what you should or should not do online, but rarely can you see it backed up with actual legitimate performance graphs so we’ve decided to post some of our observations taken directly from our Google Analytics account. What did we find?
How to Get Started
Request a consultation so that we can discuss your needs. The consultation is all about discovery and learning more about you and your business. Then, we will send you a customized proposal.
Once we have a standard work order and a plan in place, we implement the solution, standardize and optimize, and ultimately maintain and sustain the system.
