I don't know...tempting but it has a lot of Mixed Reviews @AmaBozo's. I bought the Ac3100 from Newegg about a year ago and have nothing but problems with wifi drops all the time! Thinking about getting this and dumping the AC3100 on craigs. Peace

Need a router that will reach about 150' to a shop on the same property. Have a coax cable running there providing cable tv. No Ethernet. Trying to avoid running more cables. Thoughts?

Is this better than the mesh systems like orbi and Google WiFi systems?

Mesh network or Orbi (works a little different). For a cheap, but good solution I always put DDWRT on my existing router to increase TX power or on an older second router that gives you more options than factory firmware. You can turn an old router into a repeater to extend the range or boost transmission power. If you're not familiar with DDWRT, look into it when you have some time. It's awesome and opens up a new world for the router configurations. It's as simple as downloading the version for your router and installing it from the router firmware update interface.

If you have cable running to the shop then look at MoCa. It will allow you to run the network on top of the cable signal. This article should give you that basics, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mul..._Alliance. Using the right version you can get gigabit speeds.
