Buying a router.

Using a Wi-Fi router for internet access.

A router is the center of your internet network that serves as the point of contact for all your connected devices. If you use the internet frequently at home, it's important to have an internet router that will be powerful enough to reliably support multiple devices, like smartphones and computers, that can be in use at the same time by different people. If it's been a few years since you last bought a Wi-Fi router, or if you've been considering an upgrade to your home office internet and need to find Wi-Fi solutions, Best Buy has all the equipment you need to secure a strong signal, as well as Wi-Fi network tips and tricks to help troubleshoot any issues.

Router technology has been constantly improving over the years to provide faster speeds. A perfect example of this is a wireless router, which connects to your modem, rather than a desktop PC. A wireless 5G router is ideal if you require fast download speeds and you primarily use a laptop that isn’t always at your desk and hooked up to multiple accessories.

Choosing the best Wi-Fi router for your needs.

People are working from home more frequently, which makes the need to have a fast internet connection important for transferring data. It helps to have a network router specifically designed to improve internet speed, stability, and flexibility. For example, a dual-band router can better manage the two different rates of data inputs (2.4GHz and 5GHz) because they are each traveling on their own dedicated band. This leads to less interference and connection issues overall. If your cable and internet are provided by the same company, you might want to opt for a modem router that combines two essential devices in one. This joint configuration is also great if you don’t want to mess with extra equipment on your computer desk. Plus, buying one device instead of two saves you money.

Wi-Fi routers in larger houses, or those built with certain materials such as stucco, they might have trouble dispersing the Wi-Fi signal to every room. If this is the case, a mesh Wi-Fi system that places multiple portable Wi-Fi routers in different spots in your home is your best bet for ensuring the same high-quality signal no matter where you are. A lot of people believe this is the best Wi-Fi router option for them because it provides the flexibility to change their scenery throughout the day. This includes being outside on the deck and catching some rays while finishing a meeting presentation deck.

Setting up your router.

Once you decide on the best router to set up your home network, you’ll need to make sure it’s set up properly. An Ethernet cable is needed to connect the router to your internet service provider (ISP). You’ll need one of these even if you bought a 5G router with a built-in Ethernet switch. With these products you can connect various devices, such as printers, into the multiple USB ports that will also need to access Wi-Fi for wireless data transfers. If, after a few weeks, you notice that connections are being dropped as you move away from your internet router, you might benefit from having a Wi-Fi extender for an extra boost to the signal’s range.

Any time you have a question about your home’s Wi-Fi network or any other tech needs, just reach out to our Geek Squad® and they’ll be more than happy to assist you. Whether you’re looking for the best router for your home office or a top gaming router for playing video games, Best Buy has a wide variety of models to choose from for your shopping convenience.
