Your student needs a fast, consistent Internet connection to succeed in school
With more and more school work being done online in 2019, are you setting your student up for success? Your router plays a significant role in the Internet speeds and range you will receive. Slow speeds and a laggy connection can be really frustrating when your student is trying to complete their homework or online assignments.
As a parent, you can save the day by purchasing a router with the most updated technology. Wi-Fi technology has evolved over the years, so you can get a trusted, secure connection across your entire home. Newer routers typically transmit data over two radio frequencies – 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. The 2.4 GHz band transmits data further to hard to reach areas like a student’s bedroom, and the 5 GHz band gives greater speeds at a shorter distance.
Since devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets, continuously have their internal specifications updated, you too must ensure your router is up-to-date. Many times, people will keep the same router for years while continuing to purchase new gadgets. These older routers are unable to keep up with the new infrastructure and produce lagged speeds and spotty connectivity.
Choosing a router
If your router is three years or older, you could use an upgrade. When choosing a new router, you should consider the number of devices you will be connecting, how many people will be online at one time, the type of range you will need in your home, and what those numbers and letters mean in the router description.
