- Dealing with slow Wi-Fi is frustrating, whether you're working or trying to have fun.
- A more powerful router can solve the problem, and one of our favorites is cheaper than usual right now [originally 9.51, now 8.95].
- It supports a feature that sends its signal directly to your devices instead of spreading it randomly, and lets you access its settings through an easy to understand app.
If your home Wi-Fi connection is slow, one of the reasons may be your router. As you add more smart-home accessories, computers, game consoles, tablets, and phones, to your network, you need a powerful router to be able to keep up.
One of the best routers we've tried recently is Linksys' AC1900 Max Stream EA7500, which our reviewer found to be easy to set up and full of impressive features like the ability to manage the internet connection of every device connected to it. Oh, and his network's speed was blazing fast.
The router is currently cheaper than normal, making it an even better buy [originally 9.51, now 8.95].
As its name suggests the AC1900 runs on the wireless AC standard, which is currently the fastest type of Wi-Fi there is. It also supports a feature called beamforming, which means it can focus its wireless signal toward your devices instead of just spreading it out everywhere. The result is having a strong internet connection exactly where you need it.
If you've ever had to manage network settings, you'll know how big of a pain it is to do something as simple as changing its name. Linksys built an app that lets you manage all of its settings from your phone with a clean, simple-to-understand interface.
Our reviewer found that this router put out a signal so powerful he was able to stream Netflix in a room that was separated from the router by walls made of wood, metal, and other materials. If you've been dealing with dead zones, this router might be powerful enough to eliminate them.
Although it's a Wi-Fi router, the AC1900 has four built-in gigabit ethernet ports in case you want to connect some of your devices to it with a cable. Wireless networking has come a long way in the past few years, but a wired connection is still faster and more consistent.
Nobody wants to suffer with a sub par Wi-Fi network. Whether you're trying to get work done or relax after a long week, you don't want to spend hours of your life figuring out why the internet is so slow. This deal is the perfect cost-effective solution to the problem, and you might kick yourself for not fixing it sooner.
