Refurbished - may or may not be the original manufacturer.

How decent a deal is this? Do the actual speeds agree with what's advertised?

I'm in the market for a router (discovered it was my networking bottleneck during a move) and this might be what is needed to save the day!

I would recommend getting onhub if you just want the ease of setting up and speed.

I bought the AC3150 V1 version of this from NewEgg for $56 RFB. Couldn't be happier. Lot of people were saying the 3150 was prone to KRACK attacks but when i checked with TP Link, they said it wasn't. Anyway, this looks like a great deal too, but it will go lower at times.

Looks like it's compatible for OpenWRT, but not dd-wrt, Tomato, etc.

Been using this for 8 months with no issues, although I've gotten burned on the last 3 refurb routers I've bought. Bought this new for $100.

And this echoes my concern for *RFB* . I'm glad someone posted this. I need a router, but not one that's going to give me more issues than my last one.

Just in the same boat. The TP-Link C1900 was pretty solid for what it was, but just not up to the task for our needs any longer. Part of the reason I went elsewhere this time was that TP-Link never updated the damn thing. Stuck on 2015 firmware with no added built in security to help negate that fact either. Asus has been updating their stuff plus has security built in and is under close eye/audit the next almost two decades, which I see as a plus for the consumer now. They run Merlin firmware (https://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca/download) or DD-WRT (https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index...vices#Asus) if you want as well, and to offer more security and/or longevity. My 2¢ and worth the risk of a couple tries to me since we have a working alternative still around for no downtime between exchanges.

I picked up the Asus Certified RT-AC3100 for $129 + about $12 for 1yr Squaretrade warranty on top of the 90day factory refurb warranty. Unsure on free shipping times since a Shoprunner account gets free 2nd-day. The RT-AC87U is about $97 if you need a more budget friendly option and they may have others, but I'm unsure.

Hope this helps you or others. Here's what I chose...https://m.newegg.com/products/N82...lsrc=aw.ds

May want to check your firmware realease notes for a verified patch. Otherwise, I got a used car to sell you as well. It's runs perrrfect. Zero problems ;-)

I almost exclusively buy refurbished units when I can and have never had an issue. I do only stick with major brands though like Samsung, Dyson, Sony, etc. I do not buy cheap no name brand refurb stuff.

Works great for me in the 1 day that I've had my refurb which did not look any different from new other than for the blank packaging. One unexpected benefit I discovered was even though this does not have a lot of features it has VLAN tagging that lets it work with Centurylink Fiber and some other ISPs that may require it.
