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. This holiday season I expect to add a newly built PC to my home (if Best Buy hopefully can get some 30 series in stock) and it will certainly benefit from a new router.

  2. To support the new cameras we’re adding around the house, with this we’d have two access points so all the cameras have a reliable wifi connection.

  3. I am planning on making my home smarter with smart lighting switches, smart plugs for the christmas trees and lights. I am also planning to get a PS5 to utilize the full potential of the router.

  4. I want to improve the domotics in my home. I want to have more security by having cameras for outside, inside and to check on my pets when I’m away. For the holyday I only asked for Wyze cameras so having a more powerful router/AP would be a lot better than my 12 years old Linksys.
    Thank You in advance 🙂

  5. We have added multiple Oculus quest to the house this year along with all the other devices to manage. A new router would be a great addition to help manage the load.

  6. We’re hoping for a new 4K smart TV soon. A new router would help as our old one is starting to struggle with the number of connected devices.

  7. A new router is an asset for pc gaming. My actual router is quite far away from my computer. It would make quite a difference to have this kind of router close to my computer. Nice contest !

  8. I’m planning on getting devices since my current ones are starting to feel the age. I’ll looking for a new desktop for heavy work and a laptop for portable computing also for remote desktoping. This router will provide more coverage in my home and allow me to work on the laptop anywhere.
