Belkin has announced a new range of routers that make tasks such as setting up and securing networks easier and more efficient.
As South Africa’s Internet population expands and more people add devices to their networks, the need for streaming HD movies, downloading music, playing games and sending e-mails continues to grow. Belkin’s’ range of high performance routers now come pre loaded with essential apps and provide a tool for managing these networks to fit a connected lifestyle.
It takes only three steps to set up Belkin routers, which also feature dual-band channels to eliminate interference and optimise performance for bandwidth-intensive applications such as HD video streaming.
All Belkin routers come preloaded with Easy Setup, Pre-Set Security and Self Healing applications. With Easy Setup, users can incorporate a simple plug and play system to get their network up and running in minutes. Each router comes with a Pre-Set Security code to prevent unwanted users from joining the network and using bandwidth. Also included is the Self Healing application, which automatically detects and resolves network problems.
In addition, Memory Safe automatically backs up important files and Print Gene allows users to print from any computer within the network. They are included with Belkin’s Share Wireless Router and the Share Wireless Modem router.
Other applications, which come with the top of the range Playmax router, allow users to label and sort their music library, send music to any plug-and-play device, compile personalised playlists, download large media files and allocate network bandwidth to frequently used programs.
