Internet Routers: What You Should Know

Internet routers help to manage and direct traffic between your home and the Internet, allowing devices such as gaming consoles, iPads, and laptops to connect.

It can be difficult to choose the best Internet router for your needs. If you conduct more bandwidth-intensive activities, such as streaming 4K movies or playing a lot of online games, or if you live in a household with multiple devices connected to the Internet at the same time, a more powerful Internet router may be necessary to help manage bandwidth.

Router Recommendations for Fiber-Optic Internet

What is a fiber-optic router, and how does it help you get faster internet? A fiber-optic router is designed to take advantage of Greenlight Networks fiber-optic networks’ lightning-fast speeds (Fiber-To-The-Home or FTTH). Your router doesn’t connect directly to the fiber-optic line; instead, it connects to an Optical Network Terminal (ONT), which transforms fiber-optic signals to Ethernet.

Older routers run old wireless standards and upgrading to a current model can improve your WiFi capabilities and ensure you are getting the fastest upload and download speeds with Greenlight Networks. Signs that a router might be on the way out include slower speed, reduced range, and other malfunctions. You can always check with the router manufacturer to see if it’s time for an upgrade!

Below are recommendations of routers that will work best for our high-speed fiber-optic Internet.
