Is this worth getting over the Nighthawk X4s at $200?

can't comment on this product, but I did want to note how far this company has come in the past 6 years.

I also want to add how much I loathe Amazon's pages these days. These companies are stacking all their products on one page which combines all their ratings. I think Amazon themselves have realized how useless their rating system is now.

Looking to upgrade from Wndr3400, I pay for 150mbps comcast and get around 35. Any suggestions to maximize my service without overdoing it?

$25 for a WiFi enabled wall light switch. Insane Smilie

It doesn't dim, but works well and reliably.

Actually, all the TPLink smart home stuff does. I'm very happy with it, and bought some for my folks.

Address the speed issues with Comcast first. Do you even have a DOCSIS 3 modem?

Your existing router is an "N" capable. It should be going a LOT faster than 35.

(You really should test speeds when connected with a wire though.)

That said, it's not likely to be fast enough to max out your 150Mb Comcast speed from across the house. An AC router, connected to an AC device (newer iPhone, computer with an AC adapter, etc.) could though.

Not a bad deal on the cheap Smilie

Of course spend more, get more. MU-MIMO routers can make a big difference if you have a lot of people online at once.

EDIT: The 7610 in that bundle is on the Comcast approved modems list. Consider it a temporary investment though, as it's only capable of 384Mb under the best possible conditions, and Comcast has promised nationwide gigabit availability by the end of 2018 using DOCSIS 3.1 modems. As there aren't any of those for sale (for a reasonable price yet), this is a good one to tide you over. (And cheaper than renting one.)

This bothers me to no end when trying to read reviews on a particular product that has many linked products.

I use sb6141 modem. Wired into the router I get 75mbps, with iPhone 7 or MacBook I get 30-40 right next to router. Don't mind spending $50-150 on a new router, just trying to avoid unnecessarily overspending. Thanks for the help

That's a good modem and capable of much faster speeds.

75 really sounds like Comcast has your modem set up wrong. (Comcast, make a mistake? Shocking! LoL)

You might be able to call in and ask them to take a look. No charge for that.

Try going to: http://192.168.100.1/cmSignal.htm and comparing the numbers to http://www.dslreports.com/faq/16085 and then pushing Comcast to make sure they're in spec.

Each downstream channel can do 75Mb (tops), so you should have at LEAST 4, usually 8, showing. I believer the upstream are more limited, 5Mb or so tops. (I'm not a Comcast engineer, just nerdy.) So if you only have 3 downstream and 1 upstream configured...there's a problem.

If the power levels are too low (or high) or the Signal to Noise ratio's too low, you get errors. But errors usually make for varying speed, not a solid 75. That's why I'm thinking it's a configuration problem.

I'm having similar issues. Straight into the modem my internet screams, but the WiFi on my Asus RT-N66u seems to have issues keeping up. I could be because my TWC IPTV service is killing my bandwidth...but not really 100% sure.

Either way, the power switch on my RT-N66u broke so was looking to replace it by BF. If anyone can advise if this deal is good enough to snag now, I'd truly appreciate it.

Also, need to figure out if the iPhone 7 has better WiFi than my RT-N66u supports.

Any recommendations on wifi range extenders for a 5ghz AC network? Live in a railroad style apt and my wifi drops at the back of the apt.

Question on the switch. What's the solution if you have 2 switches. 1 light and one fan switch? Can this control both?
