Are you looking for a new router but don’t know where to start? Have no fear – you’ve come to the right place. With a high-performance router, your Internet is better and you eliminate the frustration of slow connections, buffering videos and laggy online gaming. When purchasing a new router, there are few must-have features you should be looking for:
- WiFi 6 – latest WiFi standard
WiFi 6 is the latest in WiFi technology and just doesn’t give you a basic speed upgrade. It leverages numerous technology advancements that increase speeds, overall performance and capacity. That means everyone in the house can work from home, learn from home, stream at home, without affecting speed or reliability of your network.
- Multi Gigabit speeds – for faster speeds
Many homes have more than one item that requires WiFi streaming capabilities, and, without fast, multi gigabit speeds, you won’t be able to run them faster than a snail’s pace. Having multi-gigabit speeds ensures that you’re able to stream movies, television, games and more at its highest caliber.
- MU-MIMO – for stronger WiFi signals
Look for a router with MU-MIMO (multi-user, multi-in, multi-out) capabilities. This means that your router will have multiple antennas simultaneously sending and receiving a strong signal.
- Beamforming – for stronger connections
Beamforming works in conjunction with MU-MIMO and allows your router to create a stronger connection for weaker network devices that improves their performance, especially in multi-story homes.
If you keep these key four features in mind when selecting a new WiFi router, you will go home with a reliable and high-performing machine. Gone are the days of buffering movies, dropped Zoom calls and work meetings filled with “Sorry I lost you.” If you are looking for a high-performance cable modem router with all of these features and more, Hitron cable modem routers offer the best of cable modems and routers in one unit.
