This is the OLD version. Only 802.11n at the max.

If you have a newer computer this wouldn't work out, it would just slow it down.

You are better off buying TMobile Asia AC-1900 and flashing. Understand it's not everyone's cup of tea.

True, but this is good for adding AirPlay support to other devices. Way cheaper than other option, which is Apple TV. Was going to use it to do that with my Sonos, but used my receiver instead.

Are you saying with this device I can airplay my iPad to my Miracast compatible TV?

Wasn't sure but according to link below it's just for audio. You'd need an Apple TV for video.

Looking at the Apple site for the current model, I get the same model number MC414LL/A.

Most reliable router I've ever used! Got one for my mom and haven't had to do any internet troubleshooting since.

Honesty. Even though it's an older model without AC. This router is fine for most people. There becomes a certain point where the bottleneck is your internet speed. Not the hardware

May I ask for who? you? why would an Apple person want an older and obsolete model? For "most people," any router works.

If you are bringing up any kind of technology difference, then your argument would just be like "whatever."

THIS. It's ROCK. SOLID. For years I used Linksys, Asus, and Netgear... Stock firmware. Customer firmware. Always hanging, f*cking up, and pissing me off. I started using WiFi when it was 802.11b ~15 years ago. I would get into a fit of rage without malfunctioning routers because I figured after ~10 years they should just F*CKING WORK.

Bought a 5th gen Airport Extreme ~5 years ago and haven't looked back. I now have 2x 6th gen Airport Extremes, 2x 5th gen Extremes, and 2x Airport Express. My tenants share my WiFi with me so I have the whole building covered (almost all of them wired for FULL throughput). They JUST f*cking WORK. I've had to reboot 2-3 times in ~5 years.

I'm not an Apple "Fan Boy" either. I have an iPhone 7+, Pixel XL, GS7 Edge. A custom PC desktop, a Mac Mini. Not a 100% fan of any one brand, I just like things that work 99.9% of the time with minimal bullshit.

If you don't want to go the Apple route, consider Ubiquiti access points! I've read a lot of good things about them. I didn't go with Ubiquiti because I started with a 5th Gen AP Extreme and it was easier and more logical to add more Airport routers and control/monitor them all from the utility.

Perhaps one of the Asus ac1900 or netgear nighthawk r7000 could change your mind? They can be had brand new for about $30 more if you look.

If you haven't bought a router other than Apple in 5 years, no offense but you're a little behind the times.

I have the ASUS/T-Mob mentioned above and it is all the things you mention, a quarter of the price, and twice the speed.

I'm a fan of Apple products but their routers are the worst value of anything they sell.

These are great for wireless audio. Add one as an input to your stereo, or set up speakers in the kitchen, etc
