Don’t buy a new WiFi router, use this gadget to turbocharge the one you already have

Maren Estrada

Okay seriously, this is just brilliant. Your home Wi-Fi router is just a few years old and yet it's already out of date. Newer standards offer much faster internet speeds, and speed is the name of the game when it comes to your home internet service. But do you really want to cough up more case for a new wireless AC router when you just bought a Wi-Fi router a few years ago. No, you don't — and don't worry because you can upgrade your current router in the blink of an eye to support new faster speeds. Check out the Hawking Technology Hi-Gain 5GHz Wireless AC Network Upgrade, which is on sale today, tomorrow and Friday on Amazon.

This blurb will tell you everything you need to know:

Upgrade Your Router to the Wireless-AC Standard
Not ready to part with your router? Whether your internet service provider forced a router/modem combination that you can't change, or you simply just don't want to risk taking your network down to setup a new router, Hawking can help! Use the HW5AC to upgrade your device to the fastest wireless standard by simply plugging the Wireless-AC Network Upgrade into your existing device's available ethernet port.

Previous wireless standards like 802.11b/g provide speeds that are sufficient for checking emails and surfing the internet, but if your wireless demands have increased to include streaming movies, downloading high definition content, and data intensive file transfers, the Wireless-AC standard is for you. While other networking companies force you into buying new devices, Hawking has developed this unique product that allows you to add on to your existing networking device to connect with your brand new smartphone, tablet, and Ultrabook at supercharged speeds.

The Hawking Technology Hi-Gain 5GHz Wireless AC Network Upgrade really is a smart gadget, but it's only on sale through Friday.
