How To Find A Router that Fulfils all your needs

Published on 07 July 17

With the advancement in the technology wireless internet has become a necessity. As nearly all of our home products require a wireless connection to the web like smartphones, smart TVs and other smart devices that need the internet to function properly.

So to fulfil these needs of wireless internet, we need a router that has to be that much power that it can quickly provide a wireless connection to all of your home devices.

Before buying a wireless router from the market you should keep in mind about the coverage area of the router, the number of devices that have to be connected to the router and also the type of all the devices which must be attached to the router.

Types of Routers:

Single Band Routers:

The routers that are currently available in the market have their own particular identity and specifications. Some of the routers used to communicate or replicate signals over the single band of radio, whereas other routers usually use two radio bands.

The routers that are on the single band perform their duties at a frequency of 2.4 GHz. They are generally not too expensive as compared to dual band routers. But these routers might get interrupted by the devices that are in the same frequency band like blue tooth devices, wireless or card-less phones, microwave ovens, etc. So these are useful for browsing the webs over the internet.

Double Band Routers:

If you are a gamer and usually needs a connection to play games live over the web or you use massive video streaming services like Netflix, then you should have to use a dual band router. This router has two or dual bands radio. One of the bands provides a frequency of 2.4 GHz while the other band connects on a frequency of 5 GHz.

The 2.4Ghz band, in this case, will be used for regular internet browsing while the other band will be used for live gaming and video streaming. Another benefit of dual band router is that it allows assigning particular bandwidth between different devices that are connected to the internet.

Tri-Band Routers:

These routers as the name suggest have three different band radios. The first radio band works of the frequency of 2.4GHz. But the other two radio bands operate on 5Ghz frequency. These modems are also perfect for downloading torrents, streaming videos and playing Online games.

Protocols for Wireless Routers:

To receive and send any data the Local Area Network-based wireless Ethernet networks use 802.11 protocols. The older devices can only operate on 2.4GHz radio bands because they use 802.11g and 802.11b protocols. So the limit of transferring data from one node to another is only between 11Mbps to 54Mbps. But the wireless protocol 802.11n has the capacity to provide maximum bandwidth.

It can transfer data from one device to another device on up to 600Mbps of speed. These protocols operate on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. The technology used in these protocols is MIMO technology that is Multiple Input Multiple Output. The devices we use in our daily life, that are connected with the internet use 802.11n router protocols. So a router with this protocol is enough to fulfill your needs depending upon its range.
