Understanding Your Home Wi-Fi Network Usage And Needs.
The average household has 8 connected devices -- smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, laptops, and more -- often performing high-bandwidth activities like online gaming, streaming, and watching videos simultaneously. Some important points to consider when shopping for a Wi-Fi router are: the number of wired and wireless devices on your network, the types of online activities performed, and any issues that may be impacting your online experience, like slow downloads, data buffering, and lag.
HOW TO CHOOSE A WI-FI ROUTER
Shopping for a router can be confusing, so we've put together a guide to help you make the best selection.
What type of Wi-Fi user am I?
You’ll need a Wireless-AC router if you stream, game, or work from home, and have multiple wireless devices competing for Wi-Fi coverage at the same time. The latest Wireless-AC routers with MU-MIMO technology are specially designed for multiple users and devices.
A router with Wireless-N technology could be powerful enough you only use the Internet for light activities like email, and only have a few devices.
What Wi-Fi technologies can improve my streaming and gaming experience?
With cutting-edge MU-MIMO technology, your devices don’t have to wait in line for a signal. Linksys MAX-STREAM wireless routers and accessories, as well as the latest WRT router, harness this technology for an optimal streaming experience.
Additionally, Media Prioritization features from our app-enabled routers allow you to assign top priority to gaming and streaming devices.
Why is a wired connection still an important part of a home network?
Not all of your connected devices need to move around, and wired connections, particularly via Gigabit Ethernet ports, offer reliable Internet access at high speeds. Connecting one or more stationary device, like a Smart TV or gaming console, to your wired network is a great way to free up wireless bandwidth for your mobile devices.
How can I share files across my network?
Routers with USB and eSATA ports enable you to connect storage devices, tablets, computers and printers to your network, and share files wirelessly with ease. If you’re looking for a high-speed connection and the latest technology, eSATA and USB 3.0 offer enhanced performance over USB 2.0.
