Finding the best WiFi router for your home depends on several factors. Today, all homes have similar needs to use the Internet. First of all, it is better to know that a WiFi router in your home actually has 2 duties. The first is to create an internal network between the devices and gadgets inside the house and the second is to provide internet service to them.

When you send a file from your laptop or personal computer to your mobile phone or when you share the screen of your mobile phone or laptop on a smart TV, you are using the internal network.

Now let’s talk about the important factors in choosing a router.

  • Concurrent Users ( Devices)

From a technical point of view, a WiFi router is able to support a certain number of simultaneous users (devices) according to technical specifications such as WiFi standard, processor power and amount of RAM. The higher the amount of these resources, the router can serve more users at the same time. Usually, a home WiFi router can serve between 20 and 80 simultaneous users.

  • WiFi Standard

The most important factor in choosing a home WiFi router is the WiFi standard.Technically , the newer standards have a higher speed and are able to serve more users at the same time. So far, 7 practical WiFi standards have been introduced, 4 of which are being produced in the market, including : WiFi4 – WiFi5 – WiFi6.- WiFi 6E.

  • Number and Gain Of Antennas

In general, it can be said that the more antennas a router has, the higher the speed and quality of wireless communication. Also, routers with more antennas can serve more users at the same time. On the other hand, the antenna power(Gain) of a router determines its coverage level. Usually, router antennas have a power(Gain) of 2dbi to 5dbi (dbi is a measure of antenna gain). The higher the antenna power, the greater the range covered by the router.

  • The Number of LAN and WAN Ports.

A router has two types of network ports, LAN and WAN. LAN ports are used for cable communication with internal network devices, and WAN ports are used for communication with the Internet. The more LAN ports you have, the more devices you can connect to the router via cable (If the number of devices you want to connect to the network via cable exceeds the number of LAN ports on the router, you have to buy a switch).

  • Speed of WAN and LAN Ports:

The speed of the ports of a router has a great impact on its price. The more high-speed ports the router has, the higher the price. Usually, the speed of LAN ports can be 100Mbps, 1Gbps or 2.5Gbps. LAN ports are used for cable connection with internal network devices, the faster the router has LAN ports, the faster internal network you have. Usually personal computers and game consoles are connected to the router with a cable and need at least 1Gbps speed.

But the speed requirement for WAN port is slightly different from LAN ports. Since this port is only used to connect to the Internet and usually the Internet services are between 50Mbps and 500Mbps, we do not need a very high speed on this port. The speed of this port on routers is usually 100Mbps or 1Gbps.

  • Security Capabilities

Today, all the companies producing WiFi routers have put many security features on them. The reason for this is that in addition to providing internet services to users and equipment, they can also provide their security. These security capabilities can include all devices in the network, from mobile phones to smart home equipment.

Usually, companies try to put basic security features such as a firewall in the router for free and add other features (such as protection against ransomware) as additional and paid services.
