  • Today, we're getting sexy, and talking about WiFi routers.

  • Start the clock.

  • (music)

  • There is nothing worse than slow WiFi,

  • except maybe slower WiFi than what you're paying for.

  • Which is why getting a good router is crucial.

  • So here are the three most important things to know

  • when shopping around for a new router.

  • Number one.

  • Make sure the router supports at least two bands,

  • 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

  • The 5 GHz band is better at transmitting more data

  • at higher speeds, but it has a tougher time

  • getting through walls and furniture than the 2.4 GHz band.

  • With a dual band router, you get the best of both worlds.

  • Number two.

  • Make sure the router supports newer wireless protocols.

  • Basically check the specifications,

  • and make sure it supports 802.11 AC.

  • And finally number three.

  • Pick the right router speed for you.

  • Routers will have labels like AC1200 or AC3200,

  • which is just the wireless protocol we talked about, AC,

  • and the theoretical maximum mega bits per second

  • the router can handle.

  • Bigger number does not mean faster Internet.

  • There isn't a perfect science to choosing the right speed,

  • but the important thing is to get a router

  • that's at least as fast as the devices you own.

  • And that's it.

  • Check those three things and you're well on your way

  • to more reliable Internet and no more buffering

  • while you're trying to watch these videos.

  • (music).

  • Hey, thanks for watching.
