Wireless networking allows you to use your computer, smart TV, smartphone and other devices to access the Internet from anywhere within your home or office. As more and more people gravitate to laptops, tablets or smartphones, being able to surf the web or stream movies and music from any location is a highly desirable convenience. And there is also an ever-increasing array of computer peripherals – from printers and media players to network IP cameras and more – that now offer built-in wireless capability.
A Wireless LAN (WLAN) or Wireless Local Area Network is the most common type of wireless network for the home, and for wireless hotspots such as those found at coffee shops, malls and other public locations. These are typically password-protected so that only those you wish can access your wireless network.
As the name implies, wireless networking relies not on wires but on radio signals. A cable or DSL modem in your home connects you to your Internet service provider’s line outside the house. To create a wireless network in your home, you’ll need a router that takes the signal from your modem and converts it to radio signals that transmit data back and forth between your modem and your computer or other devices on the same network. A wireless extender may also be needed to boost signals in certain parts of your house – “dead zones” where your router’s radio signals can’t reach.
TigerDirect Business offers a wide variety of routers and other wireless networking devices from leading manufacturers such as Amped Wireless, ASUS, Belkin, Cisco, D-Link, HP, Linksys, Motorola, Netgear, TRENDnet and others.

Getting another one"
-TERRY GUENTHER, May 21, 2017
very good deal!
"The price is right, $99. for a 1000w can't beat that. It has all of the usual plug ins, pci-e for video cards (crossfire or sli)plus 2,4 pin 12v, because if you are running a quad core cpu you need 8 pin 12v, or use 2,4 pin 12v like this one has. so far it's been excellent. I'm running AMD 955be overclocked to 3.7, Zalman 9900 cpu cooler,Sapphire 4870 vapor-x 2GB gddr5 video card (buying a second one soon,and crossfireX it)thats where 10000w come in handy,8GB Patriot Viper DDR3 1600MHz, Cooler master cosmos full tower case, MSI 790fx-gd70 motherboard and 500G sata HD."

Excellent N router for the money
"I have had this for over 5 years now and it works excellently in a 4 storey house with the gear in basement with an extender on 2nd floor. Then we downsized and the reception is still awesome. I am thinking of upgrading at this point as fiber is near to be installed and may need more bandwidth and dual frequency."

"Bought this repeater because of the good price. Give yourself time to set it up though. It worked for me using the web setup using the IP address after using the factory reset. Quick Push button setup didn't seem to work out of the box and the Andriod QRS Mobile app walked me through setup but the settings didn't seem to stick. At least there is pretty good support information through DLink's website."

"Well, wired in I get about 80-100mbs download and with this I get about 30-40. So It's not the best for speed but it's still fast. I keeps up with my quick browsing methods and even online gaming. I got this YEARS ago and it STILL works. Plugs right in and is ready to safe a life at any time. DAMN GOOD."
