We have purchased an Ipad air and we are now having difficulty connecting to the wireless...it drops quite often. How often should a router be replaced?
You might want to look into some troubleshooting before outright replacing the device. I find Apple devices seem to be very finicky when it comes to their wireless signal and often changing the wireless channel to something specific (as opposed to an automatic setting) helps resolve most issues. If you are using the Shaw Wifi Modem, you can find the steps for that process in this article.
Do you have any other wireless devices that are also experiencing these drops?
there is no specific answer to how often routers should be replaced, but if your looking at getting on i highly recommend the netgear r7000 . looks to be the best performing router on the market as far as range and throughput is concerned, i use an asus rt-ac66u and its great but id love to have the netgear. if you do plan on using your own router tho, which i do recommend, make sure u have your shaw modem in bridge mode.
