Having a WiFi router in your home network is a very good idea. Simply because it spells out one word in the best way, “convenience.” Normally, you have to be tethered by network cabling and things of that nature, but think about why you have cordless phones in your house. You want to be anywhere in your house while talking to your recipient. Wireless Networking is the same purpose. Plus, routers only have a few ports in the back. Ranging from 4 ports – to 8 ports.
Yet, we have more things that are network capable more than ever before. Your cellphone, TV’s, Gaming Systems, Tablet Devices and so much more. In fact a lot of these objects would not be all that fun if they were not on the network somehow, plus many of them have to be done through WiFi, because they do not have a outlet for a network cable.
Wifi Routers have gone a significant upgrade in recent years that simply make them even more awesome. That you can now get a greater range, faster transmission, and overall stable connection. So now large houses can have fun on just one device and not have to worry about signal loss. They recently improved the way the signals of the router operate, as in times past cordless phones, or Microwaves once in use would suffer the wifi, this has been dealt with perfectly.
Wifi routers like, Belkin also have helped in the security aspect of it. They come with a security button on the physical box of the WiFi router, that once someone enters your password, they must be physically allowed from that button to allow that device to connect. So, that is one amazing feature about WiFi routers today. Let us not forget that many devices are network capable such as: Printers, & External HDD’s. That allows you to have them sit on your network, and everyone on your system can make use of it at any given time. Having a WiFi router is not just convenient, but essential.
