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. Our devices don’t work great in certain areas in our home so a new router would help us to connect no matter where we are in our home.

  2. Where live my house is have a block, meaning back door is half block. So my son who’s room is towards back has hard time picking up WiFi because router in living room. Finally get him PlayStation 5 this year. And he’s always had trouble with current game system he has, or has had so far so in past. This would be ideal for to have this monitor. As he’s so far from main cable provider monitor it affects when he tries upload games. As well as when his playing, it will freeze or slow system down during a battle. This would be amazing to go with PlayStation5

  3. I don’t know if I’ll get new tech, but another access point is always good when you are in a three floor house.

  4. Working from home while having the kids and their extended family home for the holidays all using the smart TV, game consoles, Wifi, digital thermostat to keep everyone warm and the on growing Tik Toks this would be great!

  5. No plans to add any new tech but could always use a better router to make what we do have run faster and better

  6. We have the man cave and hubby has to come into the house and use my computer to print. The wifi connected printer would be great for this router

  7. We are adding more family members who are working from home, especially through Zoom. Reliable, stable connections are what’s needed, and I’m sure this router would provide that.

  8. I’m currently using router from ISP and a switch for hardwired devices. With so many wireless devices in my home right now, it’d be great to upgrade from the slow, nonreliable ISP wifi.
