KingPluto: Thanks for all the advice ... but the epic difference of opinions is what puts off the non-technicals (like myself) from taking the leap into something better.



I don’t need the best (hell, the bandwidth on fibreX is so variable anyway it really doesn’t matter) ... just something easy and reliable (and preferably cheap)



Orbi or AmpliFi still seems the best from what I can tell ... but is there an easier/cheaper option?

I'll try to help filter the noise for you a bit.
@sbiddle and @michaelmurfy are both knowledgeable professionals, and they typically give good, well considered advice.
I'd be wary of anyone suggesting their advice is wrong.

sbiddle knows who I am. Hell you can look it up if you want.

 

But at the end of the day "To add to that my home is also served by Ruckus - they make the best WiFi kit on the market." - we don't disagree.

Ha! went on to the Ruckus website ... bewilderbeast!

 

I guess, they are planning on selling to professionals who know what they're talking about ... but honestly, I'm beginning to understand what my 84yr old mother feels like when I try to explain to her how to use e-mail!
