The humble wireless router is one of the most common devices found in people’s homes, but it’s often one of the least-considered. Maybe you’re using one you got for free from your ISP, or still using a years-old model in desperate need of an upgrade. A new router is the internet lifeblood for all your gadgets, whether a several thousand-dollar gaming PC or a cheapo Chromebook, and having the right one for your home could solve many of your internet woes.
But before buying a new wireless router (or routers), the most important thing to consider your space. If you have a small apartment, you can likely get away with a much less capable (and much less expensive) router than someone with a large home who who also wants coverage outside as well.
