If your Wi-Fi constantly drops out or slows to a crawl when multiple devices connect to it, then it’s probably time for you to upgrade your network gear. We have a couple of deals that should help you boost your connection.

(Update 10/6 11:00am): Cable modem deal is available via Adorama

Amazon offers the TP-LINK DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (model TC-7610) for $49.99 with free shipping, which is $20 below its regular price and the lowest price we’ve seen by more than $5. With this cable modem you can stop paying your service provider a monthly rental fee, so you’ll save money in the long run. DOCSIS 3.0 technology enables it to push download/upload speeds of up to 343/143Mbps. It is compatible with Comcast, Time Warner, and Cablevision, although we recommend confirming with your service provider first. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars from 87 Amazon reviewers.

Next, Amazon has the TP-LINK Archer C2 AC750 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router for $39.99 shipped. That’s $55 below list, $10 less than its regular price, and the best deal ever.
