A new router, like the many available by Asus, can be a game changer for your home. Why put up with the inconsistent, often too slow, router supplied by your internet service provider? Do you really think they are going to include great router technology, comparable to that designed by Asus, with the modem they brought into your home? Fortunately, you can easily add an external router for incredible improvements to your home Wi-Fi. It’s a low cost solution to connection issues. Even better, enter this contest and you might win a router from Asus and Best Buy.

Is the router from your ISP good enough?

You internet service provider does a lot of great things. Most importantly, it delivers internet to your home, which is no small feat considering they are likely sending many billions of bytes to and from hundreds of thousands of other home at the same time. The modem they provided to you brings in the signal from the world and sends your messages and requests out with speed and accuracy.

Often, though, an ISP will also provide a hybrid modem/router so you have a Wi-Fi signal in your home too. Unfortunately, that router may not serve the needs of a modern home. Why not? Most homes these days have a huge range of devices pull and pushing information to and from the internet. Some routers will manage all of that traffic better than others. Look at Best Buy’s router page online and you’ll see that there are many different kinds of routers, and a huge range of prices too. The higher prices of the newest and fastest modems are justified: you will have a better online experience in your home!

If you think the internet in your home is passable, should you get a new router? You could wait until you consistently get annoyed with slow downloads or frequent buffering while watching Netflix or playing an online game. However, if you will soon add more internet dependant devices to your home (like a new TV, new cell phone, a smart camera, or doorbell, or smart lights, etc) then you might want to consider upgrading your router to one that can handle the increase in traffic.

How to easily add another router to your home

ASUS RT-AC67P review headerAnyone can add a better router to their home. First you go online and order one from Best Buy and it will be delivered promptly.  You don’t need to hire someone to install it, or read a complicated technical manual to connect your devices to it. For most routers, you’ll connect an ethernet cable from one of the modem’s ports to the new router’s input port. Then follow the router’s directions for creating a secure wireless network in your home.

  1. We are looking to get a smart TV in our bedroom, and this router would be perfect for us to be able to have enjoyable Netflix streaming time. On top of that, it would really help with our current situation of doing Zoom video meetings in the upstairs and basement offices at the same time.

  4. I would really love this router in order to operate my electronics with faster efficiency im my basement as the speed down there tends to be slow.

  5. This router will help with the Google nest camera and floodlight I got. The ISP wifi node is struggling with the number of devices connected (processing power) and not a speed issue.

  6. Sadly I’m rocking an old plazma 32″ TV, and am currently using a Chromecast to watch Netflix/Streaming through my phone. The poor stuttering from my current ISP router and link to Chromecast is glitchy at best. By no means poor but the screen burn on that TV is annoying… so this year is hopefully a 40″ or highier SMART TV.

  7. I am planning on getting a new dslr camera and it has wi-fi control so it would be nice to have a new router for a stable connection

  8. On this holiday the most important device that would benefit from this router will be the Nanit Pro baby monitor as I set up the room for my incoming baby <3

  9. I’ll probably be adding outdoor camera’s or a doorbell cam
    Um.. I haven’t bought a router in well over a decade. So I’m going to assume this router will upgrade everything for me.
    If I get a new router, I may also be adding the 21st century to my home

  10. I’ve been looking to invest in a good home camera system with multiple cameras, so a modern (sleek-looking is a huge plus) will help with quick speed and multiple connections at once.

  11. The new technology I’m expecting to add to my home this holiday season that will benefit from a new router in my home would be security cameras.

  12. Adding 2 Ring cameras and 1 of them will be located maybe too far for the signal of my current router. This new powerful router will cover that

  13. We will be getting a new streaming device, whether it be the Chromecast, Firestick or Roku, we will definitely benefit from having another router on the other side of the house!
