Review: Asus AC2400 RT-AC87R Dual-Band Router

A good or bad Wi-Fi connection at home usually begins and ends with the router you’re using. Slower speed than normal or a weaker signal the further away you are signs that something may be amiss with the device that distributes your Internet connection. Asus’ AC2400 RT-AC87R is a high-end router that has been designed to tackle both of those issues by maintaining a strong connection, no matter where you are at home.


Review: Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Router

A modem may be the key utility device that brings in an Internet connection, but it’s the router that plays the important role of distributing it. If not done properly, you don’t get the real benefit of what you’re paying for every month. Routers don’t carry the kind of cachet other fancier gadgets do because you don’t typically interact with them often, yet they do the heavy lifting that makes using the Internet enjoyable and carefree. Netgear’s Nighthawk X6 AC3200 is an ode to design with its stealth bomber-like form factor, yet its performance is what you need to consider most if you really want to amp up a busy home Internet connection.

Asus brings Wireless-AC Wi-Fi connectivity to you

Shopping for a router isn’t terribly exciting for most consumers, simply because there’s not much appeal to the device’s usability. It’s a utility gadget that plays a standalone, albeit crucial, role in how Internet access is distributed throughout a home. It just isn’t particularly sexy. Asus isn’t trying to revamp the router’s image, but it is taking a stab at making it look nicer and perform more efficiently. Here is a look at a group of the latest from the company heading to Future Shop.

The Nighthawk X6 AC3200 is a beast in many respects, reflecting the heavy video streamers and online gamers who would benefit from it the most.

Review: D-Link AC1200 Wi-Fi Upgrade kit

by Blogger on ‎06-12-2014 09:13 PM - last edited on ‎06-13-2014 02:37 PM by Blog Editor in Chief




Less than a decade ago, most Canadian households only accessed the Internet through a desktop or notebook that was tethered to a dial-up phone line or a DSL connection.  One device checking the Internet for email and surfing the web, maybe chatting via MSN or ICQ didn’t consume a whole lot of bandwidth.  Today, the average Canadian household consumes 13.7 Gigabytes of data a month! This is why a product like the D-Link AC1200 Wi-Fi Upgrade kit makes perfect sense in decongesting the airwaves and ensuring that each device gets an equal amount of bandwidth as needed.

by Blogger on ‎04-28-2014 12:13 PM - last edited on ‎05-05-2014 03:20 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Having a good router is an important piece of the Internet puzzle at home because it distributes the signal and bandwidth coming in. It’s true that the initial speed comes from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) but use a generic router, and it’s like creating a bottleneck without even realizing it. Linksys’ WRT1900AC Smart WiFi Router is the kind of router that media-hungry consumers and streaming lovers pine for. It’s currently the most powerful on the market, and can make a positive impact on any home network that has a need for speed.


Wireless-AC vs. Wireless-N: What you should know

by Blogger ‎04-24-2014 10:33 AM - edited ‎06-16-2014 09:56 PM




Wireless, or Wi-Fi, protocols aren’t common knowledge for the average consumer. It’s one of those understated tech specs that can play a big role in how well you enjoy the convenience of browsing or streaming on your home network. So, when you see the term 802.11ac, or Wireless-AC, you know you’re looking at the current standard. Still, there are routers and devices out there that work on 802.11n or Wireless-N, and it might be worth it to you to know the differences between them.
