How to add enterprise features to your $50 router
Let's face it: most of us don't earn our monthly salaries by working online. If you are like most people, Internet means Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and maybe a few more similar sites for you. So, why should you invest your money into an expensive router, when a cheap one will do the same job?
