Antivirus company AVG is taking to Indiegogo to crowdfund a router called Chime that it believes will fix your home’s WiFi issues. Solitarily, a Chime is a fairly simple 802.11ac dual-band router. Used together, multiple Chimes can instantly band together and blanket your house in a strong signal by utilizing the same Mesh WiFi systems you’ll find in office buildings, malls and airports. It’s not the first company to offer Mesh WiFi to consumers — San Francisco startup Eero’s boxes ostensibly do exactly the same thing — but AVG believes the additional security features offered by Chime will be enough to persuade users to jump aboard.
