Home Network Wireless Routers

Connect to the Internet With a Wireless Router

Wireless routers are an important part of any home or office. They can connect all your devices to the internet through a Wi Fi signal. You can find a wide selection of new and used wireless routers on eBay. Here are a few things you need to know before purchasing this device for your home.

What is a wireless router?

A wireless router sends data from the internet to a portable device. It can also act as an access point to share signals through radio waves. A router is plugged into a phone or cable line for an internet connection. The data is sent to the router from that line. The router takes the data and converts it into a Wi Fi signal. These signals can be picked up by smartphones, laptops, and other Wi Fi capable devices. Most wireless routers require a password for security reasons.

How many bands does a router need?

There are three types of wireless routers. Routers are available in single, dual, or tri band models. You can have one, two, or three wireless networks in your home depending on your router. A single band router runs on a 2.4GHz speed. The dual band router also operates on a 2.4GHz speed but has a faster network at 5GHz. A dual band router is used to boost Wi Fi speeds in your home. The tri band router also operates at a 2.4GHz speed and two 5GHz networks. These router bands can separate the networks. This can be helpful when certain devices slow down a fast network. The dual band router is the most versatile of all the routers. It can even help to connect older devices that may not be able to operate on a faster network.

What is MU MIMO?

The Multi User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU MIMO) can transfer data to a network by using several data streams at one time. This allows the wireless router to communicate with more than one device on a single channel. The MU MIMO is becoming standard for all wireless routers. Your router will be able to give your home or office faster access to the internet. It will also handle more wireless clients at the same time.

Who manufactures a wireless router?

  • Net Gear
