What is a Wifi router?
A Wifi router is a device used to send data from your home or office appliances (desktop PC, mobile phone, smart-tv etc.), to local networks or the internet. Through acting as a wireless access point (WAP) your wireless Wifi router collects and shares data to and from all your devices via the use of radio signals, serving as a wireless gateway to a physical network modem.
A router can serve 2 functional purposes. Firstly, your router will be able to connect to the internet via communicating with your pc (or any other connected devices). It can receive and handle requests, submit and collect data from online servers, and redistribute it across your local network. The second purpose of a wireless Wifi router is as a network bridge, connecting all appliances within an office or at home together, allowing for the sharing of data and information within a secure local area network (LAN).
What is a VPN router?
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is programming that encrypts a secure connection over a public network that protects data from hackers and ensure online security. A VPN router is a router with VPN built in, meaning that the secure connection is established at the hardware level rather than the software level. All connected devices such as computers, TVs, tablets, phones, can receive VPN network access. These special routers allow users to instantly use VPN without needing to install and log into VPN software upon every use, suitable for homes and businesses in Hong Kong.
How do wireless Wifi routers work?
To connect online, your router will require a connection to a modem device. A modem is a small box that transforms multiple sets of recipient data into a single data stream. This data is received from the router and then sent via your property’s physical connection to the external internet through the modem device. Fortunately, most Wifi routers in Hong Kong feature an inbuilt modem, enabling direct connection with the internet. However, not all do, and it is important to check and consider this when purchasing a wireless Wifi router.
The importance of wireless Wifi routers
A router is an essential core-component of building a network, and it is crucial that the router you purchase is up to standard to ensure low-latency (less lag), convenient, and efficient data transfer across all devices within the network. The router is also a secure gateway, providing an extra layer of security against both external and internal threats towards the network and associated devices connected to the network. The ability to limit traffic per-device prevents congestion, allowing for the smooth transmission and receiving of data across all devices within the network. Moreover, it can block requests from servers devices deemed to be posing a risk to other devices on the network.
Most modern wireless Wifi routers have multi-band capabilities. This enables for a broader bandwidth depending on your internet needs. This ensures the continuity of data reception. An additional benefit of multi-banded routers is that they handle many more devices than their older contemporaries, allowing for wider and more extensive network building than ever before.
