When you're starting a business, you've got a lot of things to worry about. You've got to secure your space, hire your employees, file all the necessary paperwork, and advertise your new business. Also, you've got to make sure your computer network does what you need it to--all while keeping an eye on the bottom line.

It's the last part that keeps most new business owners up nights. Since you've probably gone into debt to open your business, you'll want to pay extra-close attention to every nickel and dime you spend. That's why, wherever it's practical, you'll want to cut costs.

As if buying the computers for your new business weren't enough, you also have to make sure (or make sure your IT person makes sure) that they run and are networked together correctly. Networking your computers means making sure that they're not only networked together, but that they have shared access to an internet connection. A good router, though, will accomplish both of these tasks.

The key, though, is finding a router that fits within your budget. You can probably find the best deals online, since there are a number of websites that offer items for less than you can find them in stores. You'll probably want to have an IT professional assist you in your router shopping, however, since a professional will know best what your needs are and what products will service them best (and for the best price). But there are deals to be had, if you know where to look, and you don't need to buy the most expensive product to fulfill your needs.
