I live in a city apartment with Slingshot fibre internet but the 2.4Ghz WiFi interference leaves me with bad DSL speeds.
I have read a bunch of threads and reviews and I'm very tempted to buy the Netcomm NF8AC.
Our ONT is installed in a highly visible place and I need to make it all look as pretty as possible. I would like an economical single box with 5Ghz and an internal antenna.
The options are:
- Netcomm NF8AC (Latest Firmware is May 2017) - $200
- Netcomm NF17ACV (latest Firmware is June 2017) - $260
I have no requirement for VOIP - is that the only real difference between these guys?
I also bookmarked other devices, but I would really like to have a sleek form factor, so external antennas are a showstopper (and the Fritz is too expensive).
I've read about a periodic DNS issue on the NF8AC, but it's very periodic, it will be fixed at some point, and I don't mind rebooting my router occasionally.
The WiFi strength is a bit average due to the internal antennas, but I'm in a one bedroom apartment, I can't imagine WiFi strength being an issue.
Is there any other reason not to buy the NF8AC? Its seems like it will do everything I want to me.
