Open Up a PORTAL for Greater WiFi Speed! Say What? It's Literal. :)


If you're trying to get online and you see five or more neighbors on the connection list, chances are very high you're not getting the WiFi speed you could be getting. If they're all streaming games or movies, you're very likely to experience an even bigger slowdown. Portal has a solution!



This lovely little router that is a cinch to set up (it literally is out-of-the-box ready) is designed to grab 'fast lane' waves to get your WiFi moving faster, all of the time. Liken it to a drive to work on the highway...you can stay mainstream and sit in the traffic jam, or you can move over to the HOV lane and get to where you're going so much faster (this is not a literal comparison, so please don't jump in the HOV lane if you're not legally able to do so, lol!).


The bottom has felt feet, so you're not messing anything up that it rests upon. That may not seem like a big deal, until your furniture gets scratched...and then it matters. I'm all for proactive measures these days.

A single Portal system will cover up to 3,000 sq. feet in your apartment or home, and if you want to, you can manage it from an app. How convenient...and I love convenience. In fact, I love everything about this router. To make matters even better, I'll be returning the one I rent this week (the one that came with my WiFi connection), since I now own this one, which means I'll be saving money too. This just keeps getting better and better. :) You can learn more about the Portal System, and how you can get those faster WiFi speeds too, by visiting the website.  You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Whatever it takes to get your fair share. Or more.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Pat Hatt said...

That is great indeed. We had to use a router as ours sucked.

Handy little device! I wonder how well it would work on the road. (Like when you're at a motel.)

Marijean L. said...

Wow Portal sounds like something we need in my home! I will have to tell my hubby about it!

Byron Thomas said...

I've never heard of such a thing. I live in a city and in an apartment building where internet access can be quite difficult during peak times. I'm going to look into this little guy for sure. Thanks!

Stacie said...

Portal sounds like a great device. I love that it covers so much square footage. No more seconday WiFi hotspots!

Pam said...

I love how easy it is to set up! I hate when a router is hard to set up. I have to wait for my son to be at home!

valmg @ Mom Knows It All said...

That's a really great concept! I wonder if it would work at this campground we go to, the service there crawls and then when everyone gets on it barely moves.

Well, that does it. I am now officially OLD. Even my grandchildren are way too old to qualify for that photo contest. :)

On the other hand, that Portal gizmo sounds pretty enticing. Maybe we'll have to... step through...

Liz Mays said...

This sounds like an easy way to make sure everyone has the high-speed internet access they need. There's always someone online in this house!

My Teen Guide said...

I've never heard it before but it's exactly what I need to my son's apartment! Most of the time his wifi slows down, he would love this one for sure.

Binky said...

I didn't know they had something to help with that.

Kelly said...

Our internet is awful! I think I should give this product a try, definitely worth a shot.

alissa apel said...

This sounds like a great product. Anything to bump the speed up to make gaming, and internet searching go faster.

Veronica Solomon said...

I could definitely use one of those. It gets choppy sometimes around here

Gina said...

Our movies are always buffering when we are streaming. This sounds like a good solution. Who knew? There are so many tech tools and gadgets out these days.

Wow I could really use one of these! Often when school hours are over we find out wifi slows right down. This would really help! - Jeanine

Theresa Mahoney said...

I need to get my hands on this! My wifi is so slow. I get so angry because I try to watch my streaming tivo shows and it always locks up because it needs to buffer. Grrr!

Toni | Boulder Locavore said...

This sounds amazing! I think I will need a new wifi for work needs. Definitely checking this out.

Seattle Travel Blogger said...

This looks like an awesome router!
I plan on looking at this further, as my router is getting older now, and I have been having connectivity issues.

Melissa said...

This would be a perfect addition to our home! Thank you so much for sharing! We definitely need to speed up our wifi!

Eliz Frank said...

This sounds pretty amazing to me. I will have to take a look and give it a try. I was going to consider a provider offer but this might work better.

Michelle Martinka said...

This is really awesome! I love how easy it is to set up!

Kelly Hutchinson said...

We have four of us using our WiFi and it is so slow! This looks like a great solution for my family!

Kita Bryant said...

Internet troubles are just the worst. This really does sound like a inexpensive and simple solution. Have to try it out soon!

Amy D said...

Now this is something I could have used this week. We just bought a super expensive router with hopes it would work! It did, but this is cool too.

Becca Wilson said...

This sounds like such an amazing product. Anything that makes wifi and all that jazz faster is perfect in my book.

~ Noelle said...

I'm confused...
So, we have WiFi through att. If I get this, I still have my att wifi, it's just going to make it faster?
You need to dumb it down for me... I'm sleep deprived!

Hi Noelle! If you're in a place where congested use slows down your WiFi, the PORTAL will put you in the HOV lane while everyone else stays in the traffic jam. :)
