You can score the powerful Portal Wi-Fi router for $128, but you better hurry

Portal Wi-Fi router
If you use Wi-Fi in a heavily populated residential area, you are very likely not getting the speeds you are paying for. Network congestion, caused by too many neighboring connections near the same data channels, can slow your wireless internet down considerably. The Portal Wi-Fi router, on sale for a limited time with an exclusive offer for Digital Trends readers, is a simple and elegant way to boost your wireless speeds by making sure that nearby networks and devices aren’t crowding you out.

Portal Wi-Fi routerTo solve the problem of signal congestion, the Portal Wi-Fi router features patented FastLane technology, which creates four unused data streams on the 5GHz spectrum that are reserved for you and your devices. This highly effective FastLanes feature and its super-simple setup are two of the main reasons the Portal earned an 8.0 rating from our review team and was named one of the best routers on the market today.

Nine powerful internal antennas provide blanket coverage of up to 3,000 square feet, and the portal is Mesh 2.0-compatible in case you want to integrate it into a larger mesh Wi-Fi network. The router utilizes dual-band AC2400 connectivity for a throughput of 2,400 Mbps. MU-MIMO technology allows multiple clients to connect to and use your network without their devices fighting each other for bandwidth, a feature that is particularly important for homes with users who frequently perform data-heavy tasks such as 4K streaming or online gaming.

The Portal Wi-Fi router normally costs $200, but a limited-time exclusive promotion brings the price of this simple, sleek, and powerful router down to just $128 on Amazon exclusively for Digital Trends readers who use the checkout code DTDEALS4. This $72 discount will only last from Monday, August 28 through Thursday, August 31. If network congestion is affecting your internet speeds, then now is a great time to pick up one of our favorite home routers so you can enjoy faster, congestion-free Wi-Fi.
