When we look at specs for new WiFi routers, in the interest of buying the fastest router, generally what is touted on the packaging and marketing messages is the maximum theoretical speed of the router, in addition to the stated maximum speeds like AC1900 or AC2600. While this information is important, it doesn’t explain the full story about how these fast WiFi devices achieve this performance. Nor does it state how the router performs in crowded environments, or what the estimated range of the router may be.
There are a lot of options when it comes to configuring your home WiFi network for top performance. And as wireless technology continues to improve, that number of options continues to grow with companies releasing upgraded WiFi equipment that deploy these innovations in a variety of ways.
