Choosing Wireless Routers and Cable Modems

Whether you are working from home or playing games online, having the fastest wireless network possible is a necessity. A weak connection can make using even the most powerful gaming desktop a hassle. Remote meetings and video calls require significant bandwidth and can put some severe strain on your network. Having an unstable connection can also negatively impact online gaming with frequent disconnects and other issues. Having a reliable high speed connection can make everything from streaming video to remote work efficient and enjoyable. The best way to improve the strength of your network is through the implementation of powerful equipment such as high end access points, modems, and routers. Your internet service provider will provide you with basic equipment - this may not include a wireless router which is necessary to set up a WiFi network. If your ISP offers a wireless router, it may still be advisable to use your own if you plan to connect many devices to your network wirelessly. Additional equipment can take your wireless network to the next level by boosting the range and power of your signal to most optimal levels.

Access points are amazing small devices that can be added to a network to extend the range and power of a wireless signal. Larger homes or businesses may benefit from creating a mesh network. The primary benefit of mesh networks is that each device in the network connects together to provide more coverage without compromising latency or speed. Different hardware such as gaming routers or desktop switches can be integrated into mesh networks and work to make the signal as strong as can be in all areas. Gaming routers are an excellent way to improve WiFi signal to the maximum speeds possible by your connection. These devices are designed to provide the most powerful yet stable connections for when it matters most. Gaming routers can also function like desktop switches and provide multiple hardwired high speed connections for other devices. A great place to start with upgrading your network is to purchase a gaming router. The technology present in these devices helps to boost your WiFi signal straight out of the box. As your needs grow, you can add new equipment to integrate with your router and improve your wireless network quality.

Geo ✭ November 2020 edited June 2021 in General Discussion I'm new to ohio and I'm looking to make a new pc, I'm doing massive over time and plan to have around 4000-5000 dollars for black friday, I'm not sure I'll have enough for all the parts i want but the main goal will be the more expensive parts followed by the memory ram cooling and the rest. But the more money I save the faster I can have it put together, which I'll also probably have done here.

I have several pieces I've decided on for certain, as for the rest I'll probably ask for what I should get since I'm not certain for it all.

I've got a purchase that I'll hopefully be making today. It will help immensely as it's a gift for the holidays. Micro Center is greatly appreciated and I feel fortunate to have an awesome one nearby: St Louis Park, MN. Are the staff at the stores updated on the extended return policy starting? Best to you all. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2021 @someuser Our fantastic associates in-store should be aware of this change. You're welcome to reference this article if they have concerns or questions :) I've also updated our Knowledge article regarding our extended holiday return period. https://community.microcenter.com/kb/articles/632-extended-holiday-return-period Have fun shopping for the holidays! If you find anything special for me, let me know! 😁 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Myx ✭ November 2021 I just bought a motherboard today (Westmont, IL) and the two store personnel I talked to told me 2 different things about return period -- one said 30 days while the other said 15 days. I asked both about extended holiday returns and they have no idea about the policy. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2021 @Myx Sorry to hear about the confusion here. Typically, returns for motherboards are 15 days. However, if you purchased your item after the 3rd of November, you would be included in the extended holiday period. As part of our early start to Black Friday deals, we have also extended the return period for products purchased during that time. All products purchased between 11/03/21 - 12/24/21 will be eligible for return until 1/15/22 This also extends the time frame to add a protection plan until 1/15/21 There are some limitations, so see more details here. https://community.microcenter.com/kb/articles/632-extended-holiday-return-period 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Myx ✭ November 2021 @LandShark Thank you for confirming that my purchase is included in the extended return period. That was really helpful. Thanks again! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook mirage ✭ November 2021 More exceptions should be mentioned. I tried to buy an iPad at the store today and they said it only had a 30 day return window due to some Apple policy. If I wanted a full refund I would still have to return it with the original receipt in 15 days. It could be returned after 15 days with a gift receipt, but only for store credit. Not sure the gift receipt/store credit part applies to all holiday purchases or just the iPad. Not very useful for Christmas shopping and the info should be advertised on the site. I will have to buy my gift elsewhere. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin November 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/37270#Comment_37270 You're welcome.
