Your home network is ever growing by acquiring more devices. Your digital pictures are on the network storage, your DVD collection is stashed away to prevent scratching the media but the movies are waiting for you on the same network storage, you would like to play video games with your buddies or kids while having the freedom to move your laptop around, you would like to continue watching that rented movie in your lunch break from where you left it last night, and so on.

It seams that a home network made up of a DSL modem connected to a regular IEEE 802.11b wireless home router with basic firewall protection and typical throughput rate of around 1 Mbit/s will not cut it anymore.

Here are the top 10 wireless routers you can use in your home network and enable, with low effort and minimal costs, high speed traffic between home devices. In addition, all of this devices allow for state-of-art security protection against Internet threats by providing firewall functions and encrypted wireless transmission.

    Word on Undesirable Interference

    Interference from cell phones, microwave ovens, cordless phones and other household electronics may cause interference and performance degradation. For example if the cordless phones in your home use the 2.4GHz frequency spectrum will interfere with old wireless routers and performance degradation may impact the performance of your home network. The routers presented here can be configured to operate in either 2.4 Ghz or 5.0 GHz frequency spectrum in order to avoid such undesirable interference.
