DSL Wireless Router

By Anne Ahira

A router is a device that allows you to connect your internet connection to one or more computers.

The internet connection is connected to the router and then other computers receive the internet signal from the device either through cables or over the air.

The latter is most commonly used with high-speed internet and requires a DSL wireless router.

With a DSL wireless router, you can have internet throughout you entire house and even the yard.

 

Since the average home has several computers plus other internet capable, devices many people are choosing to set up their own home networks with these routers.

Cons

There has been some debate over the usefulness of this particular router. Some customers have been very happy with the unit while others had bad luck with the unit. One common problem with this DSL wireless router is intermittent and no connectivity.

This could be due in part to the default settings of the router. The unit ships with protected mode and turbo mode in the on or auto position and in many cases this will interfere with the function of the router.
