Home Network and Connectivity Equipment
A Connected Home is a Content Home
When you’ve got something to look up, an email to send, or a video to watch, you want to be able to sit down at your home computer and connect to the internet right away. That’s why a good home network is so important. The key to an effective home networking system is networking equipment that works every single time you want to log on. From modems to routers to Wi-Fi boosters, eBay has home networking solutions to meet all your online needs.
Home Networks 101
There are a few important components to any network setup. The first piece of network equipment is the modem, which actually provides your internet access. The three most common types of high-speed modems are cable, DSL and satellite. Cable modems are the fastest but will slow down when multiple people try to connect to the home network at once. DSL modems use existing phone lines to access the internet, and satellite modems rely on satellite antennas to connect. And you can use a Wi-Fi hotspot modem to connect multiple devices to the internet anywhere you go.
The next piece of your home network is the router. You can get a wireless router or one that is hard-wired to your networking device. A wireless router has many advantages. Not only will you avoid the sea of wires that a hard-wired home network can create, you will also be able to connect all your computers, tablets and smartphones to a single router. This will help save you money by allowing you to use your cell phone on your home network instead of using data from your wireless plan. You can also get a Wi-Fi antenna, which will extend your signal and amplify its strength in your home.
Turn to eBay for All Your Home Network Solutions
Shop eBay's collection of home networking equipment and you’ll find devices like wired and wireless routers, Wi-Fi boosters and extenders, mobile broadband devices and cable modems. You’ll find home networking equipment from top brands, such as Linksys, Motorola, Cisco and more.
Online Gaming Needs Reliable Networking Equipment
When playing video games online via your PC or console, fast, reliable internet is a must. After all, nobody likes high ping or the dreaded lag during a high-intensity multiplayer match. A good game of Apex Legends, Overwatch, or Fortnite can be ruined if your internet decides to disconnect or slow to a crawl. That's why investing in a quality modem or router is absolutely essential to ensure your online gaming plays out uninterrupted.
Shop Certified Refurbished Home Network Equipment
While eBay offers buyers the choice between both new and used items, there's also a third option that may interest you: eBay Refurbished. Certified Refurbished items are sold by eBay-approved sellers. Each of these pieces of home network equipment comes with a like-new guarantee (including accessories, instruction manuals, and packaging), a free return/replacement policy (within 30 days of receiving the item), and a 2-year hassle-free warranty. We also regularly monitor our sellers to ensure they're meeting our stringent quality control metrics, so buyers know they're only getting the best.
