Antenna signal is strong but the actual transmission rate is similar to the other product. 2.4GHz performance is poor.

Ok, so I know very little about any of this kind of stuff. Could someone enlighten me on whom would benefit from a router like this? I.E. The casual gamer, the Web basic Facebooker. Thanks in advance and please don't hurt me.

This is for multiple wives, children, roommates and other people with multiple devices needing simultaneous "wireless" bandwidth to support their streaming of data to and fro.


If you are singular and only consume singular (wired or wireless) bandwidth, then this is soooo future-proof for you.


Wired Gigabit ports for reliable links between important stuff.

What in this router makes it better for long distance? Is it just stronger transmission? I have a lot of devices on my network and it's mostly fine, but my room is on the other side of the house and can get some pretty weak signals. Using a WNDR4500..

Use this as an Access Point closer to your room. Actually, use this as main router and WNDR4500 as an AP or bridge, in your room.

You look at it with fiber chewable in your mouth. That is fiber optics.


J/k a router like this is to be added with a modem. Provided you have one, it's a go. Although I can't fathom why one would add it to those modem/router combos from IS providers.

Agreed. Fiber providers have AC router/modems as standard equipment these days. In any case if you have say an AC5300 and would like to use it then simply enable bridge mode on your ISP provided equipment.

No mention of DDWRT or Tomato firmware?
