How to choose your Euresa System wifi router
How to choose your wifi router ?
The router is a computer equipment whose role is to make circulate packages from one interface to another. It is a device, equipped with a motherboard and ROM and RAM memories that allows connection in WI-FI mode. The WI-FI router The router broadcasts the information collected on the Internet, from the box, to all the connected devices: computer, tablet and smartphone. Sometimes confused with the modem, the router is a downstream component: the modem collects information while the router is connected to the network router distributes them.
Many manufacturers offer routers that ensure a fast routing of data via WI-FI.
How to get a WI-FI connection from anywhere, thanks to the 4G router ?
WI-FI, the wireless connection
The 4G Box will allow you to get a stable connection even in the mountains, where the conditions for receiving Internet are not always ideal. The router is connected to the modem via an Ethernet cable. The signal thus captured is transformed into a WI-FI sign, then transmitted to the various connected devices.
The WI-FI (Wireless Fidelity) is the most popular connection mode: wireless, from any device and from anywhere.
What elements make up the box proposed by the Internet providers ?
Each telephone operator in France offers several types of boxes. The box that you get from the supplier of your choice is then a set that includes both functions of modem and router.
Wi-Fi and bandwidth
Wi-FI is propagated by radio waves which can have different frequencies and more or less long ranges. Some boxes offer at least two bandwidths: the 2.4 GhZ with long range, which crosses the walls. This allows to place the device far enough from the computer, in another room for example. On the other hand, this long-range network is often saturated and interfered with by all the electronic devices such as automatic gate openers or baby monitors, for example.
However, this bandwidth remains the most frequent thanks to its long range.
The 5 GHz band, recent, is therefore less used. The connection is more stable and offers a much higher quality and speed. Its main drawback is its range.
Only devices in the vicinity can receive this frequency. You can invest in a repeater to overcome this problem. The new routers regularly offer a system dual-band or tri-band.
In this case, you will have two bandwidths at 5 GHz and one at 2 GHz.4 gHz.
Why choose your router based on your Internet usage ?
We have seen that there are single-band, dual-band and even triple-band routers. The way you consume your data should determine your choice. A person who lives alone will not require the same speed as a family. Several people in the same household will ask for a dual-band or triple-band router, in order to allow both video streaming and gaming usage. Indeed, gamers are making data exchange soar.
You need a powerful router.
Most routers are equipped with cables, but there are also some that are not wireless routers. They usually have a firewall and you can create a secure connection to your private network by configuring a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This type of connection prevents hacking by assigning your home network a fictitious IP (Internet Protocol) address. The IP code is the identification number of any computer network.
It is from this unique identifier that the data transfer can take place.
How to connect your wireless router with WPS ?
You will notice on all routers as well as on some devices like printers, a WPS button (WI-FI Protect Setup). The use of WPS allows to connect devices to each other, without using a cable. A PIN code, integrated in the router, secures the connection.
Do not confuse WI-FI and Bluetooth. This last mode of wireless connection offers a coverage restricted to 10 or 12 meters and its speed is limited. This technology works perfectly between two smartphones for example, as long as they are close to each other.
You just have to approve the connection to be able to share it.
Difference between hub and switch
The hub system is composed of two or more boxes that must be paired. Once the pairing is done, the signal established between the hub, just plug them into the mains and connect them to computers or smart TV. The hub concentrator recovers the signal and retransmits it to all rooms without a router.
What is a switch ?
The switch, as for him, is a network switch. It consists of a box that offers several Ethernet ports. This device has the same function as the hub, but is inherently much more powerful.
Good to know Internet providers rent routers to their subscribers. There is nothing to stop you from buying it commercially. Specialized vendors are easily found on the Web. However, remember to change the router regularly.
It becomes obsolete after 2 or 3 years. An up-to-date device allows you to benefit from the latest technological innovations.
