"To be named to a best-of-list is an honor, but to be named to the PC Mag.com list 4 times - is truly humbling to the entire organization," said Mike Chen, Linksys vice president of product management and engineering. "Finding the right router can be a daunting task however it's what we all must do if we want Wi-Fi in our homes.  Lists like this help educate and make it easier for choosing the right router for the home."

As the busiest shopping season is upon us, the Consumer Technology Association recently reported that 59.6 million US adult shoppers will buy a tech gift this season. Those top tech gifts include smart phones, TVs, game consoles, laptops, tablets, and other tech accessories – all of which require Wi-Fi connectivity for access to the internet.

"Linksys strongly suggests that if you are bringing new Wi-Fi devices into the home, users should consider also upgrading their router if they haven't done so lately.  This will help to ensure users are getting the most out of their new devices and are getting the best Wi-Fi experience throughout the home," continued Chen. "If you don't know what to do with all those Best Buy or Amazon gift cards, maybe a new router is the way to go, and the PC Mag Top Router List can help you make the right choice."
