The first thing you may notice is its’ very unique shape and design. It looks like an abstract structure with its spherical design which makes it perfect for setting it on top of a coffee table or shelf. Unlike other routers which have rows of blinking lights, the Norton Core has a subtle lighted ring underneath which glows. Under the Core’s dome are a single WAN port for your broadband router and three LAN network connections. It also has a power port, reset button, and two USB connections. The Norton Core WiFi router comes with a complimentary subscription to Norton Core Security Plus that provides security protection for your personal devices, plus smart parental controls. The mobile network control allows you to manage your home network, right from your phone. The app shows you exactly what devices are on your network at any given time. There is even a security score! Norton Core monitors data from your home, identifies security issues, and sums it all up in a single, powerful number. If there’s a problem, Norton Core jumps in with timely insights and tools to get you back on track.

In today’s day and age we can never be too careful on the internet. One little virus or phishing tactic obtained by simply opening up an email from an unfamiliar source can set off a chain of unfortunate events. This router not only gives you optimal power and speed, but provides peace of mind by protecting you and your loved ones from malicious cyber attacks. This router is a huge step up in security from standard routers provided by cable companies. I couldn’t be happier with this router, aside from all the amazing features – its’ futuristic design is always a great conversation starter!
