Hi all
Recently cranked the Spark fibre connection up to 100Mbps from 30, and a HG659b is on the way rather than the HG630b I currently have.
Finding poor wifi distance from current setup of Time Capsule (4th Gen, 802.11n) as wifi router with HG630b in bridged mode. Would there be an obvious and definite improvement from using the new HG659b as the wifi router when it arrives? What with ac and beam forming? Obviously a less "premium" router is all...

Can test etc but thought I'd ask in advance if there was an obvious answer.

Do you need the storage capabilities? if not then settle for the Airport Extreme Base Station instead. The Hg659b is actually a pretty good router and Spark is happy to sell it to you if you want it.
