$40 cheaper than FP deal last month. Looks like a great price for a fast, tri-band router. $139.99 with a clippable $20 coupon. Could be even cheaper if you have the AMEX code for that category, though I can't verify this.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0106N5...ail_0?th=1

Compatible with echo/alexa...
  • 3.0Gbps—Fast combined WiFi speed for uninterrupted streaming
  • Tri-Band WiFi delivers more WiFi for more devices
  • Dynamic QoS bandwidth prioritization by application and device
  • Six high-performance antennas & powerful amplifiers maximize range
  • Smart Connect intelligently selects best WiFi for every device
  • 1GHz dual-core processor delivers lag-free gaming
  • USB 3.0 port offers high-speed, storage-ready access

I almost bought this but didn't when I found out this isn't currently supported for dd-wrt. Heads up to any other dd-wrt users!

1 on 1, this blows Google WiFi out the water.

If you're looking to mesh, Google might have an advantage...MIGHT. this mostly depends on the area you are looking to cover. But if you're going to mesh, I'd go with an orbi system anyway.

and if you don't know, mesh means joining multiple routers together to cover large homes (fyi)

This link explains MU-MIMO in layman's terms: https://www.linksys.com/us/r/reso...s-mu-mimo/

Also note that the main drawback to MU-MIMO is your client devices also need to support it, otherwise the router is forced to run in traditional SU-MIMO mode. So in short, you'll be future proofing yourself once MU-MIMO becomes more ubiquitous.

Dumb question, I know, but how does it compare to Google WiFi? I'm interested in seeing and blocking devices using my internet. Thanks.

Costco has an AC 3000 router with 'S' suffix. It is for $30 more. Is the Costco router Worth $30 more than this?

That one has MI-MO over this I think. Anyone having experience can chime in?

Yeah going with the s for $30 is definitely worth it.

Yes... My pleasure.

In things like technology, I would rather spend $30 more if it does add some difference. Router is a thing that I use for several years. Set it up once and forget it. Login every few months to check for firmware upgrades, if any.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking to replace my 10 year old linksys router.

I'm not looking to mesh, since the area I need to cover isn't very big. I need a router to inform me and allow me to block traffic.

AWESOME! Is this better than the Staples one? I order the 2600 wMU-MIMO. That one is dual band, this is three band, but no MU-MIMO... I have a 1700 SqF house.

Is the R7800 better? Staples also has it for 130. Smallnetbuilder gave it good ratings as well. Also has a much faster cpu
