Overview of a Wireless (WiFi) Router

wr1.jpgWireless router performs like a router, small electronic device that can link multiple computer networks together by a wireless connection.

Internet routers are of two kinds: wired and wireless; the wireless allows for four Ethernet ports for connecting PCs, TVs and other in-home gadgets to the internet, but the wired kind is already outdated, except for those who want to get online via Ethernet cable.

Procedures to operate a WiFi router is as follows: plug your phone or cable line into the router and data will be sent through the connection to the router; as soon as the WiFi router takes this data, it converts it into radio signals, which are picked up by devices with WiFi capability such as laptops, tablets, smart phones and games consoles.

A WiFi router can also be used to make calls over the internet, saving on expensive phone calls or bills or it can be accessed to a digital TV. For more info about wireless router, you may follow the link.

By entering a password on the device you are using, you can connect your device to the WiFi router, such that the password is usually supplied by your Internet service provider and can be easily found on the bottom of the router, which are series of number and letters designed for security purposes and also to protect your network from being used by others illegally.

The Internet service provider usually gives its user a router, but it’s up to the user which router will he/she use, – will it be the asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) package or the fiber-optic broadband, of which in this broadband type you can expect for a better model with more features, such as BT’s Smart Hub, etc.

The following are the WiFi routers and their features available in the market today.

Among the WiFi routers available today, the Smart Hub stands out because it features seven antennae to offer for a bigger range than any other router and it also offer next generation AC WiFi, which means you can connect to more than one device and can still have the advantage of ultra fast speeds.

Virginia’s Super Hub has the same AC standard WiFi, five antennae, but when with Virgin’s market-leading 200 mbps WiFi, it has a speed so fast that you can access the web on a string of devices at once. Like the BT Smart Hub, Virginia’s Super Hub also has four Ethernet ports for wired connections, but there is no USB port. Know more about Ucsb RHA.

The Sky Q Hub is the pay TV provider’s most powerful router, which is in the same league as Virgin’s Super Hub and BT Smart Hub, because it comes with the latest AC standard WiFi for connecting to the best new technology out there, same 5Ghz as its competitors, and boasts of having up to 64 devices on its network at once.  The Sky Q Hub has only two Ethernet ports, which is not ideal if you want to connect a number of devices using a cable rather than WiFi and there’s no USB port.
