You will need a wireless router to connect to your dedicated fibre line. Wireless routers play an important role connecting computers, mobile phones, TV, gaming, video streaming and an ever growing number of smart home devices. That means picking one that does the best job for both you and your wallet is trickier than ever, especially now that you have access to very high speed at Calabogie Peaks and new devices use Wi-Fi 6.
Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation standard in WiFi technology that better supports the growing number of devices in the world. If you own a VR device, multiple smart home devices, or simply have a large number of devices in your household, then a Wi-Fi 6 router might just be the best WiFi router for you. Wi-Fi 6 also supports the newest security protocol, Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3), which has stronger user authentication capabilities and better encryption tools to protect from brute hacking and other attacks.
If your Wi-Fi signal is weak at a location in your home, consider getting a Wi-Fi extender or booster for that area. If you have multiple weak areas, or want to cover a large area, consider a wireless mesh router system. Mesh routers use two or more connected devices to offer multiple sources of Wi-Fi signal, on the same seamless network. It’s like having 3-5 separate routers in your home, but they all share a single Wi-Fi network.
