9. WI-FI ROUTERS
the increasing number of portable devices, such as laptops, tablets and
even music players, we need to be connected to the Internet constantly.
Wi-Fi routers are good at keeping all these devices online but what do
you do when you are on the move? You always have the option of buying a
data dongle or a portable Wi-Fi hotspot. Alternatively, if you own the
latest Android or Windows smartphone, you can use the phone's data
connection to create a secure Wi-Fi network of your own.This option
is available in your settings menu as 'Wi-Fi hotspot, Internet tethering
or Internet sharing'. You can secure this network with a password and
connect up to five devices to surf the Net. In developed countries,
operators have special plans for Internet tethering. But thankfully,
Indian carriers don't charge extra for mobile hotspots.
