4 products you can buy on Amazon that will help you build an insanely fast home network

4 products you can buy on Amazon that will help you build an insanely fast home network

Building a reliable home network takes a lot of work, especially if you live in a large home with a bunch of people. You have to worry about the placement of the router, the amount of devices connecting to the network, the cost of your Internet package vs. how much data you actually need — it’s a real hassle.

But before you lose your mind trying to plan out how you’re going to build this daunting network, it’s important to have the right hardware. Today, we’ve gathered a list of products from Amazon you’ll want to consider before you begin:

Modem: Motorola SurfBoard SB6141

Why hassle with cable modem rental fees when you can own one yourself? It’s an investment, but it’ll save you money in the long run (and it’s probably better than whatever rented junk your Internet provider gave you).

Available at Amazon for $89.99

Router: TP-Link Archer C7

If you’re looking for a great router, but you don’t want to spend upwards of $250, TP-Link is the way to go. I picked up this router recently and my download speeds have shot up significantly since I upgraded.

Available at Amazon for $89.99

Powerline: ZyXEL AV2 Gigabit Adapter Starter Kit

Don’t buy a WiFi extender! If you need to reach the far corners of your house, it’s worth it to go wired instead.

Available at Amazon for $93.50

Ethernet Cables: Cable Matters 5-Color Combo

If you do decide to go the hardwired route, you’re probably going to need a few extra ethernet cables. Might as well make them festive.

Available at Amazon for $12.99
