Wireless Routers

SORT BY:
Reliable internet access allows people to stay connected to friends and work colleagues and is a requirement for most modern homes and offices. Wireless routers create a strong Wi-Fi network so multiple devices can connect and access the internet. There are many different routers with unique features and benefits so a little research can help you determine the best wireless router for your needs. Browse the large selection that Staples carries to find the right network equipment for your home or office.

Features of Wireless Routers
Wi-Fi routers generally have a wired input to the service provider's modem and broadcast a signal allowing devices to access the network wirelessly. Most routers from brands like Linksys and NETGEAR use data speed as a performance indicator. You can find routers that offer speeds of 300Mbps up to 1.7Gbps. Some models also include additional features such as USB ports that make it easy to share data from external drives straight to the network.

Signal strength is an important consideration for a Wi-Fi router. Most routers use at least two antennas to boost the signal. Walls, floors and interference can reduce wireless signal strength, so choose a router with enough power to create a strong signal everywhere you want a connection. Some models incorporate adaptive beamforming technology to improve performance.

Further Considerations for Wi-Fi Routers
There are several additional considerations when choosing the right Wi-Fi router for the home or office. Look at your service provider's documentation to determine what kind of router will work with your connection (e.g. DSL, fiber optic, cable, etc.). Operating bandwidth is another important consideration. Most routers operate at either a 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency and dual-band routers create separate signals at each frequency. The 5 GHz band provides faster data speeds but attenuates quickly away from the router. The 2.4 GHz band usually provides a more stable connection in rooms far away from the router. A single-band router may work well in a small apartment, but most homes benefit from a dual-band device.

Many routers also include security features such as password protection and encryption algorithms. Some allow you to create a separate guest network and increase safety with parental controls. Wireless routers with QoS (Quality of Service) technology allow the user to design customized settings that route bandwidth to applications that require it most.

Is it Difficult to Set Up A Wireless Router?
Most routers require a fairly simple installation and setup process. Some use a web-based interface whereas others come with a software program. You can also find models that allow installation and setup through a mobile app.

What Operating Systems Do Wi-Fi Routers Require?
Wireless routers generally work with both Windows and MAC operating systems and their associated web browsers. Many routers also support Google and Mozilla browsers.

Are Range Extenders Necessary?
Depending on your home's configuration there may be certain areas of poor signal strength. A range extender can be very helpful. Many brands offer range extenders designed to work seamlessly with a wireless router to boost signal strength and ensure a strong connection everywhere in the home or office.
