Today's scholars rely on Web connectivity to participate in distance learning and access a vast array of information and educational tools far beyond what any single learning institution could provide. Harness the power of the Internet at home with adapters, routers and modems that let students surf the Web, experience entertaining and useful streaming media and connect with teachers and classmates via e-mail, video chat and social networks. There's a vast world of knowledge out there - make sure your child is connected to it.
Modems make wired Internet access quick and easy. Students can simply connect a computer, smart TV or gaming console to enjoy more entertaining and educational content than can be imagined. Choose a modem that offers the right data transfer speed for any environment, with options for basic users as well as young learners who download lots of files and like to multitask by doing research, streaming music and running different Web applications simultaneously.
Routers extend Web access throughout any home, so students can do their work and stay entertained wherever they feel comfortable. Select the right wireless standard for the job with options that accommodate basic Internet use, such as e-mail and browsing, or higher standards that support high-definition streaming and gaming via a connected monitor. For larger homes and students who like to take a laptop or tablet outside, consider a larger wireless range that will maintain a strong signal throughout the house.
Adapters are a quick and easy way to add wireless connectivity to laptop and desktop computers. Just like routers, it's important to consider which wireless standard will best accommodate the user's needs. Built-in security protocols help safeguard kids' privacy, and simple plug-and-play USB connectivity makes setup a snap.
