The WiFi Router has become an integral part of our lifestyle. It’s more than just a box; it’s a magic box. It’s fair to say that it’s a special device that gives us access to the world around us and the digital realm as well.
Now, most of us don’t use a router outside of using it to set up a wireless Internet connection. However, there’s a lot more to a router than just giving you a good signal.
Your router, personalized just the way you want
There’s a lot of potential lying dormant in your router that you need to take advantage of. You can use your router to schedule “curfews”, wherein the router is instructed to shut down after a said point of time in the day. This works well to restrict the internet insomniacs in your household. Apart from this, there are apps that take care of various aspects of security and personalization. NETGEAR’s Up app secures your network by enabling you to change your SSID and password, while also updating it with the latest firmware. On the other hand, NETGEAR’s Genie app guarantees the safety of your child when on the web, limiting access to certain websites.
Steer Clear of WiFi vultures
We’ve all had our fair share of leeching neighbors and ungrateful roommates latching onto our WiFi at the drop of a hat. This can be a serious turn off, especially when the WiFi performs slowly on your device. All you need to do is find the Media Access Control (MAC) addresses of said devices, and you can deny network access to these vultures of WiFi.
Guests coming over? Time for your router to be the perfect host
Now when your friends come over and ask for WiFi access, don’t be dejected. Your friends can connect all their devices to your home WiFi signal without you bearing the brunt of it. How is this possible? Well, it is possible to create a guest network on your router for exactly such situations; the best part is that all of your connected devices will still get the bandwidth they require. So all parties are happy!
Performance is not the only plus point. Looks matter as well
The primary purpose of the router is to provide you awesome connectivity, no doubt. But as time has passed by, an adequate consideration has also been given to the look of a router. They’re no longer only square boxes that sit unnoticed in your master bedroom. NETGEAR’s Orbi breaks the stereotype with its sleek design, giving the router an appeal of a beauty. Designing the antennas in an aesthetic manner, like in the NETGEAR Nighthawk X6, transforms the router into an absolute beast.
Your router dictates your WiFi’s performance, it’s time you have complete control of your router in order to become a WiFi wizard. Unlock its true potential.
