Ditch the problem router and move to Wireless-N

TechRepublic Australia Wrapper

Editor's note
The wrapper is back for 2013! I hope you all enjoyed your break and managed to cope with temperatures in the low 40s better than I did. While the Wrapper was away, there was still content appearing on the blog formerly known as Girt by Code. The outstanding piece over the period was Tony McSherry's advice on upgrading outdated routers to new ones that support Wireless-N. After reading some of the advice in the comments, I went home that night to create a second Wi-Fi network that supported Wireless-N, only to find that I, too, had an old router that should probably get the boot. Which makes me wonder how many people out there are hooked up to high-speed broadband and are slowed down by using the same router they had years ago. Having an NBN connection is all well and good, but if you are still using Wireless-G, then you are not getting the full benefits. Have a good week, everyone! -- Chris
