Shopping Guide for Home WiFi Router

With the increasing popularity of smart products, the demand for WiFi routers has increased. In terms of purchasing a WiFi router, we pay more attention to the speed, wireless performance and stability of the router.

The WiFi router can be connected to the Internet, enabling wired and wireless terminals to share broadband Internet access. The performance of the WiFi router determines the Internet experience of the entire LAN, and different application scenarios have different requirements. The new generation of high-performance home WiFi routers launched by CERES provides an ideal high-performance product for the family. Here are several factors that should be considered for choosing a home WiFi router.

1. Home broadband

First, confirm the number of megabits of broadband at home. If the home broadband line is less than 100M, choose a 100M port router to meet the demand; If the home broadband line is ≥100M, it is recommended to choose a homenet router to avoid affecting the Internet experience.

2. House types

Different apartment environments have different requirements for routers. For example, for large apartment/duplex/villa with an area≥120㎡, use CERES WR138G; For a three-bedroom/four-bedroom with an area of 120 to 150㎡, use CERES WR136G. See the recommended models below for details.

3. Wireless frequency band

Home WiFi routers are divided into single-frequency WiFi routers and dual-frequency WiFi routers based on frequency bands, among which dual-frequency WiFi routers are the current mainstream products. It is recommended to choose the dual-frequency WiFi router, which has less wireless interference, fast speed, and a better wireless experience.

4. Wireless rate

If there are more wireless devices at home, such as TV boxes, wireless projectors, monitoring equipment, and several computers and mobile phones, which are used at the same time, the bandwidth demand is very large. At this time, a multi-antenna WiFi router is needed to increase the bandwidth. (Bandwidth can be compared to a road in a vivid way, the wider the road, the more vehicles that can pass at the same time).

5. Amount of devices

Like corporate wifi routers, different home WiFi routers may sustain different amounts of devices. You can choose a suitable router according to the number of terminals that need to access the network. Generally, the higher the wireless specification, the greater the amount of devices that the router can sustain. Dual-frequency WiFi routers can sustain much more devices than single-frequency WiFi routers can.
