- Welcome to Quick Fix,
the show where I answer your most commonly asked
tech questions in ninety seconds or less.
Today, we're getting sexy, and talking about WiFi routers.
Start the clock.
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.
