Everyone who's ever purchased a new PC knows that there's more to setting it up than just taking it out of the box and turning it on. The same is true of your home router. Putting together a home network isn't trivial, but it doesn't have to be overly difficult, either. Hardware manufacturers are making it easier than ever for even non-technical users to put together home networks. New routers come with clearly labeled ports, in some cases, color coded, making it simple for users to connect everything. Most routers have a basic configuration preset while still at the factory, which simplifies things even more. And many new models, like Google Wifi, are geared toward extreme ease-of-use, offering fast, seamless app-based set up.
