Getting Good Wireless reception in your new place
One of the biggest frustrations a new renter faces, is establishing a fast wireless internet connection for your new place. Even if you’re renting a furnished condo or house in Miami, you’ll probably have trouble, unless you do one very simple thing: go buy a good modem and a good router. The old modem you get with most furnished rentals may look like it’s working, but you’ll probably spend a lot of time waiting for your screen to load.
- Motorola SURFboard eXtreme - Cable Modem. Super fast, costs about $100. Probably 5-10x faster than the cheap, basic modem you’re using
- NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router. Quick, easy-to-use, looks good and costs about $80.
