Best Buy customers often prefer the following products when searching for basic routers.

If you're looking to upgrade your home Wi-Fi, the first thing you should consider is getting a new router. While it's true that many modern routers come with a single built-in Wi-Fi radio, if you have multiple devices all on the Internet at once, you may find yourself with a slow connection or even dropped connections. A high-end router is designed to handle the simultaneous demands of multiple devices and provide fast Wi-Fi for all of them.
