Hope thread isn't to similar to the other router treads, but the others seem to have a focus on lower end gear.
Essentially I am having stability issues with my Vodafone supplied HG659. and am hoping a better router will sort them out and give me better proformance at the same time
My network configuration is shown below.
I have been looking at:
- Netgear R7000 $273.70
- Netgear R8000 $343.85
- Asus RT-AC66U $325
- Asus RT-AC68U $388
- TP-Link Archer C7 $201.25
Prices are from PBtech
Alternatively I could also go for a separate router (I could put it in my networking cabinet) and access point. Currently I
have used Cat 6 fixed wiring (some patch leads are cat5e) to locate the router in my office away from the ONT.
Anybody got any preferences.
I have heard good things about ASUS, but the Netgear routers seem better speced and cheaper. I also have a soft spot-TP link as I have one has been near flawless on ADSL2 for the last few years, but no gigabit ethernet ports mean its time for me to move on.
