Setup a Reliable Network in Your Home or Office

A Wi-Fi router is essential to getting your home or business network up and running, but it’s only the first part of the setup process. All Wi-Fi routers aren’t the same—there are many different types and features, including dual-band routers and triple-band routers. Which type of router you get will be based on your specific needs.

Find the Right Wi-Fi Router for You

Believe it or not, there are a lot of different Wi-Fi routers out there, and they come with various features. But what should you look for when you’re shopping? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

First and foremost, you’ll want to consider your house’s size. If you live in an apartment by yourself, any router will probably be fine. However, if you live in a large house with several devices connected to your wireless network, a dual-band router will be better. Not only will this make wireless coverage more reliable, but it will also help reduce interference from neighbouring Wi-Fi networks so that your signal remains strong at all times. Dual-band routers features both 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz Wi-Fi bands that can support multiple devices. 5Ghz Wi-Fi operates at a much higher frequency than 2.4 GHz, which makes it a better choice for streaming video and other high bandwidth applications. The downside is that because it operates at such a high frequency, you’ll need to be closer to the router to use it.

Triple-band routers are faster than dual-band and can handle more connections simultaneously without slowing down. Triple-band routers usually have an additional 5 Ghz band. Devices will connect to a triple-band router faster than they would with a dual-band router. You might be wondering if you need three bands or two? If you have many devices streaming simultaneously and you don’t want your devices competing for bandwidth, it may be best to get a tri-band router if possible.
