Wireless-N on Both Ends

- December 30, 2009 - 1 Comment

Past blog posts have discussed various topics relating to Wireless-N, such as relevant news, benefits, and accessories, but did you know that this dynamic technology can be made radically more useful by utilizing Wireless-N at both the device (PC, gaming console, set-top box) and router (access point) levels?

Installing a Wireless-N router in your home is the first step to establishing a network that is capable of supporting today’s most bandwidth-hungry applications, like HD (high-definition)-video and simultaneous gaming/web-surfing. To take full advantage of these innovative applications, however, equip your device with a compatible adapter, such as a Wireless-N USB adapter or a Wireless-N gaming adapter.

Wireless-N on both ends significantly increases the throughput by using a variety of advanced techniques (such as MIMO, double radio band, and frame aggregation) allowing you to network at a much faster pace. 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.
