If you’re using the default wireless router that your ISP provides, you might be dealing with coverage issues. Certain rooms in your house might drop your connection, or the speed might be terrible. So if you’re ready to upgrade to a better wireless router that doesn’t compromise one iota on security, consider the Norton Core.
• Norton Core Connected AC2600 Secure WiFi Router with One-Year of Security Plus for $199.99
From a hardware perspective, this router has a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a gigabit WAN port, three gigabit LAN ports, two USB 3.0 ports, support for 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO, and Bluetooth LE. And thanks to the beamforming tech in play, your coverage will be top-notch.
With your purchase, you’ll get one year of Norton Core Security Plus. This service not only protects your network from intrusion and malware, but it also protects your laptops, smartphones, and tablets to boot. After the first year, it will automatically renew at $9.99 per month. If you cancel, the added security and parental control functionality won’t be available.
On top of all of that, Norton is also offering up its “Ultimate Help Desk” that will walk you through the entire setup process. Even if you run into an issue, they’ll stay on the line to help you get all of your devices connected.
Note: Terms and conditions apply. See the Norton site for more information.
