About Us

Welcome to CNS Waco – Your Premier IT Solution Provider!

At CNS Waco, we’re committed to being your one-stop shop for all things IT. With a comprehensive range of services including Office 365, antivirus solutions, remote support, security systems, surveillance, phone systems, and network design and deployment, we’ve got you covered. Plus, as a full-service cabling vendor, we offer top-notch solutions including Cat5, Cat6, coax, and fiber options tailored to businesses of all sizes. Our expertise also extends to Wi-Fi connectivity and various other internet and network solutions.

Our journey began in 2010 when our managing partner, Aaron Gustafson, founded Computers N’ Stuff with a simple yet powerful philosophy: to provide quality IT solutions to all, no matter the size of the job. Inspired by a desire to prevent others from being overcharged for basic IT services, Aaron embarked on a mission to become the go-to person for IT support in his social circle.

From humble beginnings, we’ve grown steadily, expanding our services to include surveillance system installations and serving clients nationwide. Over the years, we’ve built a reputation for excellence, handling managed service provider tickets for a wide range of esteemed clients including major brands like Texas Roadhouse, Walgreens, and Starbucks. With each project, we’ve honed our skills and expertise to deliver the best possible support to our valued customers.

In 2019, we took another significant step forward by obtaining a Texas Private Security Bureau Security Company license, enabling us to offer in-house alarm and surveillance solutions to customers across the nation. Upholding our core values of “No Job Too Small” and “Quality Work at Affordable Prices,” we’ve continued to expand our reach and serve clients ranging from small businesses to data centers across the United States.

Today, as CNS Waco, we remain dedicated to providing our customers with top-notch service and support. With a humble yet talented team of four, we’re committed to delivering quality solutions tailored to your unique needs. Whether you’re a local business in Waco or a data center across the country, you can trust CNS Waco to provide you with the expertise and reliability you deserve. Thank you for choosing CNS Waco – where quality meets affordability in the world of IT solutions.

In 2023, CNS Waco made a significant leap forward in our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions by investing in a 2500 square foot warehouse space. With a strategic five-year lease, this warehouse not only provides ample room for expansion but also lays the groundwork for our ambitious plans to build our very own colocation data center. This forward-thinking investment demonstrates our dedication to staying at the forefront of technological innovation and ensuring that we can offer our customers the highest level of reliability, security, and scalability for their data needs. By integrating state-of-the-art infrastructure into our service offerings, we’re poised to continue delivering unparalleled value and support to our clients, cementing our position as a leader in the IT solutions industry.

In the dynamic landscape of 2024, Managing Partner Aaron Gustafson, alongside colleagues Nathan and Drew, embarked on an ambitious venture: the establishment of 3 Nerds Wireless, a wholly independent Internet Service Provider. With a clear vision in mind, Aaron aimed to seamlessly integrate the verticals he couldn’t previously service and offer customers unparalleled end-to-end support. Envisioning a future where all CNS customers would benefit from 3NW’s services, Aaron forged strategic partnerships to revolutionize the industry. Through this collaboration, customers gain access to a cutting-edge colo Data Center, empowering them to relocate servers to our Main Office. This not only reduces costs but ensures unwavering reliability without compromising on speed. At 3 Nerds Wireless, we’re not just providing internet – we’re shaping the future of connectivity.
