I recently bought a house and will be moving into it in a few weeks, so I am starting to look at my new internet setup.
I have been boarding with different people over the past few years, so I do not currently have an internet connection of my own. Also, the networking equipment I own has been getting rather long in the tooth, so I'm going to have a fresh start with new equipment.
I will be getting 1gbit UFB, most likely with Spark as I've generally had pretty solid experiences with them (once setup correctly anyway!).
The new house is a relatively small 1960's three bedroom home, so I'm thinking one Wifi router or access point will be all I need to cover the whole house as far as WiFi goes. Depending on what I find when I move in, I'm going to try and run some ethernet cable to a couple of places as well.
I need to buy a router and perhaps an access point. The RSP provided routers are fine(tm), but over the years I have found them to struggle under lots of connections etc. Also, I want something that offers more configuration options!
I've long been interested in the idea of getting some Mikrotik gear. Is that still a good option?
Alternatively, I see gowifi has some Grandstream GWN700x series routers with prices that seem almost too good to be true, are they any good?
If I decide to go Mikrotik, I would probably look at either the hEX (maybe too underpowered these days?), or the hAP AX2/3.
I'm looking forward to be able to play with home networking again. It's something you can't really do when living in other peoples homes!
All advice welcome.
