Netis WF2419R Wireless Router: review and testing

In modern stores there is quite a lot of network equipment for wireless communication. Sometimes it is very difficult to understand their characteristics and select the proper one. Especially difficult this task is for user who did not deal with the construction of networks in practice. It is often seen when in home or small office with two or three working places to organize wireless communication through Wi-Fi "top-end" router is used. Thus there is a substantial overpayment for the functionality that under these conditions is simply redundant.

One reason for this situation is the lack of information about the network equipment of entry level. That is why in the section on communications, we strongly try to pay attention to low-cost solutions. In particular, in this review we will look at one of them - a wireless router netis WF2419R, which can be bought for about $ 25.
