It Was Only A Matter Of Time Until Someone Put A Touchscreen Into A Router

At Computex 2015 in Taipei, there are a lot of networking devices. Everybody is talking the Internet Of Things, and there’s dozens (probably hundreds) of different Wi-Fi routers and modems and access points. There’s also a lot of smartphones and tablets and little touchscreen gadgets. But why, why, do you have to have your smartphone and your Wi-Fi router?

D-Link AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router: Australian Review

I never thought that I’d see a Wi-Fi router that was both bigger and more ostentatious than the Netgear Nighthawk X6, but that day has come. The D-Link AC3200 (DIR-890L) is a giant glossy red triangular prism with six huge antennas sticking out of it, and promises tri-band Wi-Fi performance of up to 3200Mbps.

D-Link's New Wi-Fi Routers Look Like Reverse-Engineered Alien Technology

At one time when all you needed to connect was a couple of laptops, a cheap wireless router would more than suffice for most homes. But these days, when there’s everything from phones to tablets to TVs relying on your Wi-Fi network, it makes sense to splurge on your hardware.

Linksys Just Made Its Great WRT Routers More Affordable

Almost a decade ago, when Belkin’s 54GL router reigned supreme, routers could afford to be somewhat restricted when it comes to bandwidth. You had a desktop, maybe a laptop, and if you’re a really early adopter, a smartphone connected to your network. Now, devices have multiplied like asexual amoebas, we’re swimming in laptops, tablets, smartphones, connected handhelds, smart home sensors, gaming consoles, on and on and on, and the router suddenly becomes the most important device you own.

Hide All Your Online Activity With A $75 Tor Router

Concerned about someone snooping on your online activities? Tor is one of the best services in the world to anonymise your Web traffic, using a thousands-strong network of computers around the world to bounce your data on the way to its eventual destination, disguising its origin.
