taking a gamble. my airport extreme is long in the tooth. reviews between newegg, best buy and amazon seem to agree that router is fantastic if yours works.

new, unit is roughly $250 so this price is amazing. even if you purchase the 2 yr extended warranty its still roughly half of new unit.

I'll take the gamble that it works and if it dies within 30 I'll return. you have 30 days to postmark the rebate so ill wait 28 days before doing rebate.

this router has all the high end features i want at the price i want, so here goes...

90 day warranty from asus
2 year servicenet warranty 19.99 (new unit has 2 yr warranty)

oh yeah. free shipping, or faster free shipping with shoprunner.

so if you have gigabit Internet, how fast a router do you need to maximize WiFi speeds? or would there be a bottleneck from the network adapter of the client?

I got a new Nighthawk R7000 for $100. The reviews on this refurbished are mixed. Is the extra speed (1900 vs 3100) and MU MIMO worth it? A better QUestion-- what sort of circumstances would make all these doohickeys, bells and whistles worth it?

If you talking about maximizing speed, LAN lines are what you want. Actually even with lan lines you probably wont hit the magic number. Doesnt matter what router you get because you will not be able to hit 1 Gbps in a speed test or in a real world scenario. If by chance it was your goal to come close using wifi you'd have to one of the best wifi cards(no built in stuff), something close to the Linskys EA9500*(expensive), good range with minimal interference, connected to 5Ghz (shorter range), and probably some other stuff im forgetting. Point of it is dont bother trying to get gigabit speed through wifi unless you want to shell out money. If I had to guess expect around 600mpbs in good conditions.

I'm thinking phones/tablets that have no ethernet option. how fast are the WiFi cards in smartphones today?
