Build a robust home or office Wi-Fi network with a Zoom® router. The brand offers a number of wireless routers as well as hybrid routers with built-in modems. With one of these, you can easily share your broadband internet connection wirelessly with multiple users. Staples® carries a wide selection of dedicated and hybrid routers from Zoom and other leading networking equipment brands.
Choose the Right Zoom Router for Your Home or Office Zoom makes compact wireless-N routers that can share internet connections from broadband modems as well as 3G modems. These standalone 802.11n routers have a maximum wireless speed of 150Mbps and can spread Wi-Fi signals over distances up to 1000 feet. The brand offers these dedicated routers in desktop and travel models. Zoom's travel router has a built-in rechargeable battery and can also run on AC power. Choose a battery-powered pocket-sized router if you often need to set up Wi-Fi networks on the road or while doing field work. Choose one of the brand's hybrid routers if you prefer a single device to serve as broadband gateway and router.
Create Reliable Wireless Networks With a Zoom Modem/Router A modem/router combo costs less than buying its two component networking devices separately. Manufacturers offering these hybrid devices pair compatible modems and routers and then optimize them to deliver fast Wi-Fi speeds. Zoom makes routers integrated with cable and ADSL modems. The ADSL hybrid modem packs a wireless-N router with a top wireless speed of 150Mbps. Since cable broadband speeds are usually faster, the brand integrates faster wireless-N and wireless-AC routers with its cable modems. You can choose between two speeds (300 and 600Mbps) for the combo devices housing wireless-N routers. Get a model equipped with an 802.11ac model if you want a faster router and need a Wi-Fi network that can handle bandwidth-intensive tasks like online gaming and 4K video streaming.
Are There Dual-Band Zoom Routers? Yes. Zoom makes routers that transmit data over both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. These dual-band models support 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard and come with advanced features like beamforming. A dual-band router produces a more reliable wireless network than a single-band router. With the 2.4GHz frequency often crowded by competing wireless devices, the addition of the wider 5GHz band improves network performance for 802.11ac devices. Beamforming optimizes a router's signal spread by focusing it directly toward computers and mobile devices requesting faster connections. This feature increases a router's wireless speed and range.
What DOCSIS Version Do Zoom Modem Routers Support? DOCSIS or Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification is the international standard for transmitting data over cable TV infrastructure. Zoom's cable modem routers support DOCSIS 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1. The major difference between these is speed. DOCSIS 3.0 modems deliver significantly higher data speeds than those that only support DOCSIS 2.0 and 1.1.
Why Do You Need Ethernet Ports on Wireless Routers? Routers need Ethernet ports to establish wired connections with network-ready devices that lack Wi-Fi. Such devices include most TVs and printers. With Ethernet cables, you can easily connect such appliances to your high-speed wireless network. Zoom routers have Gigabit Ethernet ports, an ultrafast version that supports speeds up to 1000Mbps.
