Linksys Routers

A wireless Linksys router gives you the freedom of connecting multiple devices to the Internet simultaneously. Additionally, you're not restricted to a few feet of cable, so you can use your wireless devices anywhere within signal range, giving you freedom of movement. Staples carries a selection of Linksys routers.

Purchasing a Linksys Router for Everyday Use
One of the benefits of a wireless router is the ability to connect to the Internet without wires. You can apply a password to safeguard against unauthorized access to your connection. This also protects the browsing speed by limiting the number of devices that can connect. Network file sharing can occur over a wireless network. Connected computers can share a range of media, including photos, documents and music files. Once a network is in place, a printer or other computer peripherals can be shared between devices. A wireless connection is convenient and makes it easy to connect a new device to the network.

Available Options for a Linksys Router
There are three main types of wireless routers, Wireless G, Wireless N and Wireless AC. A Linksys wireless G router has a maximum transfer rate of 54mbps. It is ideal for homes with only a couple of connected devices. A Wireless N router has a transfer rate up to 300mbps with two antennas and those with four antennas can reach speeds of 450mbps. It has an increased range over Wireless G, which is ideal for larger houses, and it provides quick speeds even with several people connected at once. A Wireless AC router is often referred to as a Gigabit router. It offers the strongest signals and maximum speed. It provides reliable browsing speeds and handles entertainment systems without a lag.

What Is the Difference Between a Router and a Modem?
A modem is a device that connects to the cable provided by your Internet provider. The cable that comes in from outside of the home cannot be connected directly to your computer. The signal must go through the modem for processing. A different wire connects from the modem into your computer. A router takes the signal from your modem and shares it with the computers and other wireless devices in the home or office.

How Do You Reset a Router to the Default Password?
Most Linksys routers have a small reset button on the back of the device located near the power plug. The button can be depressed with a paper clip or other small item. To reset the router, press the button for approximately 10 seconds or until the power LED lights start blinking.

What Is the Best Placement for a Wireless Router?
Linksys routers should be placed in an open area without any physical obstructions between the main devices. It should also be away from heavy-duty appliances and electronics and should be elevated within the room. For a router with external antennas, the antennas should be turned in an upward direction to boost coverage. There are several downloadable apps that can show the weak and hot spots of coverage within a Wi-Fi network for easy adjustments.
