I am helping with the sorting out of a FibreX network. They are currently using the VF supplied Huawei router but it is being somewhat troublesome. I could not find issue with the router so I feel it's environmental. They want to replace the router but are unsure what unit would work best

 

They currently have the Gigabit Fibre X, they have 4 Ethernet devices connected and up to 15 WiFi devices connected. What are the options for routers compatible with Fibre X ? 

 

 

 

edit; I tried a Nighthawk r outer I had kicking around but could not get the silly thing to connect.

What problems are you having with Nighthawk? Have you tried the steps in this thread?

15 or more WiFi devices starts to get to a point where plenty of routers will struggle.

 

The best option is probably to move towards standalone access points with that many devices.

I think I better talk to my wife about her SME or Enterprise routers

using a wr1043nd v2.1 running gargoyle with a 200/20 connection, will run fullspeed with only port forwarding but slows to 150mbs with QOS running (will try with more simplified rules thou)

 

very happy with fibre x so far, was on 130/10 (Waikanae beach)

I've got about 25 devices currently active on my R8000 and it seems to be coping ( although it does have 3 radios). Do you think I might be reaching my limit soon? What would be the next step in router?
