How is your network running?

- December 17, 2010 - 6 Comments

Are you noticing slower-than-usual speeds, dropped connections, and lag in your home network, even though you are using a wireless-N router? If so, it may be time to incorporate a network adapter into your ecosystem. While a wireless-N router can greatly boost speed and range, a corresponding adapter can multiply its efficacy, as we discussed a year ago on this blog.

The Linksys AE1000 Wireless-N adapter is a great option if your network needs more oomph. Its selectable 2.4 or 5 GHz Wireless-N bands are designed to enhance performance and avoid interference while managing multiple networking tasks. You can set the base anywhere in your home to optimize wireless connectivity, and it comes with a USB extension cable to give you even more placement options.

By using N on all devices, your network will function with increased throughput and more reliable coverage, helping to eliminate deadspots in your home network. If you’re network needs a “recharge,” kick off 2011 with a wireless-N adapter.
