How to Reboot Your Router to Improve Network Performance?

Screen Mirroring from your iPhone or iPad to your Smart TV is quite a heavy job for your home network. Discover the 3 easy steps below to improve your screen mirroring experience.

What is a router?

With a router you can connect two computer networks. Do you use the internet at home on more than one device? This is all possible thanks to the router. A router divides the internet signal over several devices. And the router takes care of communication between all those devices. This creates a network. This network can be built with the help of cables, or wirelessly.

What is a modem?

You cannot use the internet without a modem. The modem ensures a working internet connection. You could actually see him as a kind of translator: he ensures that the signal from your internet provider is converted into information that your computer, smartphone or television can read.
