Things to consider

I want faster internet in my home

Eco System

If you want to improve the speed of your internet connection, the first thing to know is that the only way to change the actual speed you receive through the phone line is to contact your service provider. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it.

If your router’s old or you’re using the one supplied by your service provider, chances are it isn’t up to the demands of HD streaming, gaming and a connected home. Replacing it with a higher spec router, like one with an AC rating, allows you to securely connect more devices and ensures you actually get the speed that comes into your home.

My signal isn’t strong enough for streaming media and my devices keep disconnecting

Eco System

If you’re struggling to stay online when browsing the web in bed or want to connect a Smart TV far away from your router, a range extender or powerline kit can help. While they both take your internet signal and send it further into your home, they do it in different ways.

A range extender is ideal for maintaining a wireless signal to tablets, smartphones and laptops. They provide a stable signal, but aren’t really quick enough for downloading/gaming. Powerline kits are perfect for Smart TVs and games consoles, as many let you connect via an Ethernet cable for an uninterrupted connection to the web. Some also feature integrated WiFi for wireless connectivity.

I have an old computer and want to make the most of my new router

Eco System

If you have a dual band or AC rated router, the wireless card in an older laptop or desktop probably won’t be making the most it. For laptops, a wireless adapter simply plugs into any spare USB port and can improve the stability, range and speed you receive.

While you can use a USB adapter in your desktop, most desktops have space inside for an internal wireless card. They plug into any free PCI-Express (PCIe) port for unobtrusive, fast connectivity. Wireless cards and adapters are rated just like routers, so look for one with the same rating as yours to make the most of your connection.
