The Best Place to Put Your Router… Is Not Inside of a Book Binder

Your router is like a fine wine. You get much more out of it when you let it breathe.NA_COMM_060517_SocialMedia_BadWifi_web_v1

At ARRIS, we like design; we like our pendant lamps and our “open concept” living spaces. We also like it when our Wi-Fi® works. And just like you, we expect it to work all the time. One way to ensure the fast and flawless performance of your wireless router or gateway is to put it out in the open, as our engineers intended.

If you cover up your router, you risk compromising your Wi-Fi performance, create a lack of ventilation and reduce your product’s lifespan. Just don’t do it.

And remember: placement is actually one of the most important factors when it comes to Wi-Fi performance. Check out the reasons and our recommendations, here.

So while covering up your router may seem like a good idea at the time, you’ll likely look back on the decision as people did with their water beds in the 70s: totally unnecessary, barely functional, and potentially damaging.

The Future of Home Internet Security is Here

As of today, you can buy an ARRIS SURFboard® SBG7580-AC with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee® at BestBuy.com for $199.

ARRIS SURFboard® SBG7580-AC with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee®

It’s an absolute game changer.

You used to install security software on your laptop, tablet, phone, or other device you wanted to protect. Now, your gateway (cable modem & Wi-Fi® router) comes with that security at the entry point—protecting those devices and more.

We call it connect and protect. When you connect your devices to the SBG7580-AC to get Internet at home, ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee protects your devices from malware, phishing, and more. It’s that simple. And when you’re away from home, McAfee Live Safe, which provides antivirus, identity and privacy protection, lets you extend that protection wherever you go.

Our new SURFboard is really four products in one, convenient package:

  1. Gigabit 32×8 modem with DOCSIS® 3.0
  2. Gigabit 802.11AC Wi-Fi router
  3. Gigabit 4-port Ethernet hub
  4. Home Internet security software

Whether you’re upgrading your family’s Wi-Fi or need the fastest wired connection for high-speed gaming, our new SURFboard delivers gigabit speeds with peace of mind.

Speaking of peace of mind, the ARRIS SURFboard SBG7580-AC gateway with ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee is the result of a partnership between ARRIS and McAfee—the companies that invented the gateway and home Internet security. You’re in good hands.

Need more convincing? At $199, the SBG7580-AC also pays for itself in less than two years, because you won’t have to dish out the average $10/mo in rental fees. And included in that price are three years of ARRIS Secure Home Internet by McAfee® and three months of McAfee Live Safe.

It’s the complete package. Get yours today at BestBuy.com!
