Tired of your connection dropping during a gaming session with your kids? We all run into this common problem, but now you will finally know how to take control of the situation.
Solution: There can be quite a few reasons for this to happen, among them: too many game players, a crowded 2.5GHz band on your router, or even a router that isn’t optimized for game playing (or even media playback).
D-Link’s DGL-4500 is a router made for gaming.
We’ve already mentioned two possible solutions above: Netgear’s WNHDEB111 networking kit or Linksys’s WGA600N. These happen to be gaming adapters that you add to your existing network. They don’t increase the overall speed of your network but they do facilitate communication between the adapters themselves which often lets you bypass the bottlenecks.
Then there are gaming routers — devices specifically designed for gamers — or at least there were. The advent of 802.11n routers, even in their current Draft 2.0 status, seems to have cured much of these gaming woes just by virtue of their faster speeds. D-Link still sells its GamerLounge Xtreme N Gaming Router DGL-4500, but Linksys appears to have discontinued itsWRT330N Wireless-N Gigabit Gaming Router (which isn’t even on its website any more.) If the kids are kicking and screaming and tossing furniture it might be time to jump on the 802.11n bandwagon or have the house wired for screaming, gametastic speed.
Wireless Printer Routers
No one can ever quantify how the invention of wireless routers has changed the way people manage their small home or office networks. The invention might be seen as mere removal of wires, but then the existence of wires itself is tantamount to a great deal of time, money, and energy. Through wireless routers, computers within a network can communicate freely with one another, give and take documents, music, photos, films, and other media files, share with one Internet connection, and not the least have a common printing station.
At home or office, producing hard copies is one of the constant activities being done everyday. Wireless routers, especially those models manufactured to optimize printing, enable fast, automatic, multiple and quality printing without the age old burden of moving the printer from one computer to another, if not configuring the set up of a printing computer host every so often. Through wireless routers, computers and printers can easily exchange command signals to attain one-click printing, accommodating multiple users and multiple requests to produce hard copies.
Wireless printer router can easily be set up through attaching a USB printer stick that can serve as bridge between the router and the printer. Aside from this there are also router models with print server hardware technologies that can easily create wifi signals between the two devices. There are also smaller and high end router models that compartmentalize such hardware which basically just have to be plugged and played.
