If there's one thing everyone can agree on at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), it's the awful WiFi. Luckily for this year's attendees, the team from Ignition Design Labs came prepared with Portal, the smart whole home WiFi system that is shaking up the wireless networking space.

At Pepcom Digital Experience and ShowStoppers, the team demonstrated how the Portal router delivers consistently fast and reliable WiFi, especially when you're surrounded by multiple competing WiFi networks or devices.

Members of the media had the opportunity to experience its power first-hand at the Showstoppers Internet Lounge, sponsored by Portal. Even in the extremely congested environment, Internet Lounge visitors saw consistent speeds of 150+ Mbps.

Portal was an honoree at the CES Innovation Awards showcase and a finalist in the Last Gadget Standing contest.
