Wow this Norton Core Wifi Router goes far beyond what I ever imagined would be possible within my own home. We have five kids – the youngest two are still at home but we have gone through technology stages with the other three already. We have dealt with malware, virus’, inappropriate behavior, failure to follow rules etc… Our middle child was the most challenging and she knows it – actually is probably pretty proud of it. But it was like a boot camp for us to deal with our youngest two children – they totally don’t appreciate all that we’ve learned. But in addition to what we’ve learned along the way, technology has changed dramatically – even in just the last five years.
Think about the last 10 years?! Ten years ago I was purchasing my son a laptop – for alot more than I would have liked to spend. However, he has special needs and in order to keep him moving forward at home – he needed a computer. A year later he left it open on the floor and the dog stepped on the keyboard – I replaced it. And again and again and again until I could no longer purchase a replacement keyboard for that particular device. The marketplace had changed by that time – now I could get a chromebook to achieve everything I needed him to have access to for a fraction of the cost! I would no longer need to repair a device it was usually cheaper just to get a new chromebook (though I have repaired screens).
Over the years we have had to replace our wifi router more times than I can count – usually because we were hacked and I was fed up. Now we have the Norton Core Wifi router and I am thrilled beyond belief. This router exceeds the abilities of wifi routers we have had in the past. It has a better firewall and works better than antivirus apps. I have never been able to really track what my kids (teens) are doing and if my middle child taught me anything – it’s how critical it is to track everything they do for their own safety and potentially even ours. I can now block sites, block them out of days and times – no more worrying about taking their devices away at 10pm – they can no longer do anything if they have their devices! Woohoo! No more suspicious activity in our house – it’s all under control.
So many resources that other devices are lacking or not doing well – security score, appropriate notifications, IOT protection for smart devices like webcams etc… It is easy to setup which is awesome because we never seem to have much time.
We have a four story home – with previous wifi devices we could barely get coverage at the back half of the house on any floor. Even the floor (4th floor) where the router is we couldn’t reach the back of the house. With the Norton Core we not only can reach the back of the house but it doesn’t seem to have any reduced speed no matter where we are. The kids can sit on the front porch or in the back yard and still have access.
My final feature to focus on is how it looks – it is unlike any other wifi router that I have ever seen. Usually there are antennas sticking out all over the place with some sort of square or rectangular base. Not particularly attractive. The Norton Core design on the outside is just as impressive as what it can do on the inside!
