Ok as I just got a tablet and need to upload sometimes, and as I just got a soso smart tv which Id like to match with an android tvbox help me find or understand what I need.

I still want my 2 computers to be internet wired (not wifi is that what we called ehternet port???)...and I think there is on off wifi on some router if so that's what I would use for tablet and android box when I need it. because I ma no techie I prefer my computers to be on wired for protection and only use wifi when I need it.

I don't understand which band (dulor not I guess dual is better) or numbers (those 802 or 801)or whatever it needs as far as speed some say 733mb other 900mb some even less.
right now have 60gb plan high speed internet. my old router died last month and it was a netgear rp614 so nothing new right?

would like to spend lessthen 50$ if that's possible...I saw on best buy a wifi wired modem for 30$ would it work well with android box?

Your internet modem does not have a WIFI feature?
Or how is your internet connection terminated?
What is that 60GB about? Your monthly data quota?
What is your subscribed internet bandwidth?

These days most of the standard rands are pretty decent; although some folks will have a preference for a given brand f course. All down to personal feelings (and occasionally experience).

Typical routers are usually both ethernet and wifi. Wifi is (usually) not enabled by default, unless it;s from your isp; or the it states "clearly" on the box that wifi "is" enabled already.

The SSID and access key (aka - and incorrectly the "password") will usually be on a sticker on the base of the router; and often within the literature with the router; and/or on a separate card etc. with the router.

These days most "mobile" kit will work any wifi enabled router. What you may find with the real cheap routers is that the wifi signal may not quite a good/strong as some of the slightly more expensive models. Reviews for whichever yo consider will invariably mention the wifi aspect - and how well (or otherwise) it performs.

Netgear kit seems to be OK for many; likewise D-Link; and also Cisco/Linksys. I would avoid TP-Link kit as often there appear to issues with some of their stuff...

fFrom what I have read variously, dual band is often considered useful for those involved in gaming etc. The upper band frequency is less populated than the lower, which means less traffic. Also the upperis allegedly less suceptible to i tereference..

This article discusses it to some degree:

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,281...

And (using the search term/string " single or dual band wifi " No " ") for a google trawl you can read quite a few other discussions on the topic.

These two (via the above trawl) are from CN recently:

"what about dual band do I need that does it worth the value (some starts at 60$)"

Where are you looking? I bought my kid a DLink dual band on sale for $20 on Black Friday. Haven't tried it yet (it's a xmas gift). Here's the one I got:

Most Black Friday deals will probably be repeated close to christmas. Follow them on Amazon, Newegg, Best Buy, and a few others. Some let you 'watch' an item and if/when if goes on sale they will notify you. Once you sign up with them you get regular email deals, many are often repeated but sometimes you get a great deal popping up.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

the trendnet would come at 20$ correct and is faster then the asus also the asus comes at 30$ is worth more but it says 300+300 speed

which means does the trendnet is better @ 800+300 Or do I have this all wrong?

I don't change my things often (has you can see with my previous router. Which one would be best...as I read reviews and they both are mixed im a bit lost. asus seems tobe a better rebate but slower bandwith? so technically I guess the trendnet is better because faster? or does it come to component (which I know nothing?)
