Nope - Dual band router.

It's AC750 though, which is the second slowest speed, but it's still good for extending your network or if you're not needing > ~433Mbps throughput on the 5GHz channel (and 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz channel)

Comcast primarily uses gateways which are a modem+router combined. If you have that, you can use this as a range extender, but unless your gateway is in bridge mode, it can't be used for routing.

Looks like a good deal even though it is obviously an basic entry unit for AC wireless, no USB, no gigabit connection, probably no DDWRT. This is cheaper than most AC wireless USB adapters which is pretty amazing. I assume that AC wireless USB adapters will rapidly drop in prices now too.

Wireless AC makes a lot of difference especially if you are in an area saturated with Wireless N signals which is everywhere really. I pay for 150 Mbps ISP, even when my computer was right next to my old wireless router, I could only get 70 mbps max with Wireless N 2.4 gigahertz according speedtest (connection icon on computer said 300 mbps though....pfff). When I switched to AC router I was able to get the theoretical max 150 mbps throughout my house same as if I used a ethernet cable.

I wouldn't worry about its low theoretical speed of 750, even the more expensive 1900 AC routers won't get that theoretical output at any realistic distance(I have one). Wireless AC uses 5 gigahertz thus just for theoretical range it will be less than the old Wireless N 2.4 gigahertz.

I would not hesitate to buy this if still had a wireless N router. If you bought a computer or phone in the last 3-4 years, most likely the device supports Wireless AC.

Jump on the AC bandwagon now b/c it looks like Wireless AC is hitting critical mass very soon. You won't enjoy the benefits of wireless AC when it becomes saturated like Wireless N was. When ATT UVerse and Comcast introduce new standardized Wireless AC modem/router combos it will be a sad day for early adopters.

Can this be used as a secondary? I need some cheap router so I can hardwire my TV to and trying to avoid 2.4 GHz usage as its way too crowded.

Not entirely sure what you mean. You're looking to hardwire the TV to this device and then want it to talk to your existing router via wifi? If that's what you want, what you need is a wireless bridge, not a router/switch (this can be used as a wireless switch by way of connecting ethernet to one of the 4 non-internet ports on the router, but the router itself broadcasts wireless, but doesn't connect to it.)

All that being said, if you can get DD WRT onto this, you can put it into bridge mode (See here [cnet.com] for a dated, but still useful article on the topic) - But unfortunately, to date there are no Zyxel routers on the supported list for DD WRT.

Edit: Fun fact about this router - It has a spot on the board [imgur.com] for a USB header, but doesn't have the actual header soldered on.

thnx for an advice. yeah still looking for a router that would be within 20$ range and would support AC and bridge mode. And yes looking for something to set up primary router--wireless--secondary router--wire--tv. Also don't want secondary to broadcast wireless signal as already too crowded where I live.

Most low end routers have 10/100 port. It costs around $100 if you want 1000 port.
