Your home router has one job: So why does it make it so hard to do that job? From dropped connections, to complicated setups, to indecipherable troubleshooting menus, to looking like a gaudy blot in the middle of your living room.
But the MyRepublic Wi-Fi Halo is different. Thank goodness it’s different. The first thing you’ll realize is that it doesn’t look like a mechanical bug that might rise to life and gobble your cats. Instead, the Wi-Fi Halo has a streamlined exterior with gently soft ambient lighting on its underside.
But don’t underestimate its minimalist design. The Wi-Fi Halo is a state of the art AC2200 dual-band router with a four-stream, four-antenna engine that features modern Multi-User (MU-MIMO) Beamforming technology for fast and reliable internet connections for multiple devices.
The Wi-Fi Halo also solves the most vexing parts about routers for most people: setting up and troubleshooting. A Setup Wizard helps you get connected in minutes and helps you to change your default passwords easily, the first line of defense against internet attacks.
Instead of a confusing interface that looks like a leftover from the 90s, the Wi-Fi Halo comes with a modern UI that anyone can use.
A built-in firewall also secures your home network, and parental controls, as well as a Wi-Fi analyzer, gives you fine-tuned power over internet use. The router even comes with guest networks set up and easily toggled on, so you don’t have to worry about sharing your personal network’s password with visitors.
If you need help with the Wi-Fi Halo, MyRepublic customers can have router issues diagnosed and even fixed remotely by the MyRepublic customer service team, instead of having to wait for a technician to drop by.
With your permission, customer service agents can remotely fix common issues like checking the network connection status, checking which devices are connected, resetting the network password and updating the firmware.
It’s like having your own IT department ready to help you with Wi-Fi woes. And if you prefer not to have remote access to your Wi-Fi Halo, you can easily disable the function under its settings.
The Wi-Fi Halo normally commands a price tag of S$349, but new and existing MyRepublic customers can get a great deal on the router. Depending on their choice of MyRepublic fiber broadband plan, customers will receive a discount on their purchase of a new Wi-Fi router, ranging from $70 to $350 – the latter essentially making the Wi-Fi Halo available for free.
