I have gigablast internet with one of these. Is it worth upgrading routers or mesh these since WiFi realistically won't ever be as fast? 3800 sq foot home
My girlfriend has a 6500 square foot house and 3 of these give her good results vs a $300+ big Netgear router that died on her a month out of warranty. I bought the same router and it also died a month out of warranty. Cool thing with these are they're cheap, fast, and easily replaced for 60-70 if one breaks, although I have seven in total in two homes with zero issues.

My house is half the size, but I can get about 1/4 mile away in the car before I lose signal.

A mesh of these like I have (3 also) gives me non buffering problem free 4k/60fps HDR video on three concurrent streams with the 250GB comcast plan. And my kid games on them and gets a big latency advantage against a lot of people. While I'm watching one of those 4k/60fps HDR streams.

Few devices can put up a sustained 400Mb/s run unless you're doing a cloud backup of a few TB of data on a regular basis, and since most high volume traffic (copying copious amounts of data from one machine to another or a backup to a NAS) happens outside the router and in a switch inside your home.

I've had one for a few years now and it is awesome! One of my favorite features is the ability to easily and quickly set wifi schedules for kids on particular devices. If my son is giving us an attitude I can go into my phone and shut down his wifi instantly.
You're kind. When mine acts up he gets his devices and everything with electricity involved gets put in my safe until he wises up.

But then again, I'm a believer in real hard consequences for misdeeds or attitude. Gets the point across pretty quick after a few hours of staring at the ceiling in his bedroom with no phone, no video games and no tv.

Cool story bruh. You win.Applause
Overall, this is a great deal, how it switches up the band frequencies is great. Very good for only $60.

Hey guys, I know this will likely be the dumbest question on the thread. However, I just need a normal router. Is this overkill or normal use and is this something that I can just plug and play? Thanks

Nope, those don't have an intel chip. What version of ios are you running?

Let me know how it works out. Try the auto setting, the ISP setting and the google setting on the router and see if you can set the phone to let the router provide the DNS.

I'm interested in getting to the bottom of this because I have 2nd gen and latest gen ipads and iphones from 5 to X working fine on mine, but I get DNS problems using comcasts DNS (configured at the router) and googles (4.4.4.4 and 8.8.8.8) occasionally. Not usually with the ios devices but with other devices.
I'm on iOS 12.3.1. Anyway I was able to figure out the issue on my phone's end. I'm actually using Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 app so I can use their DNS though my cellular network on top of WiFi. Once I "disconnected" then reconnected to their DNS via the app, I found that my phone now loads sites almost instantly via WiFi. Hope this could help ya!

These are reliable and does a good job covering my home. The only thing I'm not happy with is that they don't support MIMO and limit the speed to ~300-400Mbps.
I have a 400 Mbps connection and reliably get a little over 400 with this router.

I had two for a few years, both with ethernet backhaul. Worked pretty well. One died recently and I upgraded my system to ubiquiti unifi gear. For me, the ubiquiti system is working better than the google onhubs, but to each their own. I posted details in a previous onhub deal if you want specifics.

Google/tplink just sent me a replacement unit. I have it (open box) and my original other functioning unit that I want to get rid of if anyone wants the pair... make me a reasonable offer.
Would you take 40.00?

Will NF do a price adjustment if you bought this recently?

You can definitely just plug and play and at $60, it's a great single router option. The google WiFi app makes it easy to set up, add guest network, and a basic optional family mode.

The antennas in this thing are good. Plus if you ever find weak spots and want to add more, you have the option. More units are particularly helpful if you are trying to get strong 5ghz AC all over and your house is a little larger or has lots of walls, multiple levels. The 2ghz coverage of this much larger.

Not a dumb question but a vague one. Depends on the size of the building, how many floors, structural makeup. If you live in a single floor apartment this should be fine. If you have a 2000+ SQ ft 2 story home you may need a more powerful router or a mesh setup.

Actually, I'll probably try to use them at my parents. I just realized I advertised two used devices on a deals thread with current New listings at near all-time low prices. Your $40 offer was reasonable in that context, but also made me realize I can get more use out of them.

That's interesting. Do you just set them up as AccessPoints in the GoogleWifi app?
Yes you just change the device mode from standard to bridge mode and you are good to go.

Can I use my VPN (Private Internet Access) on this? I've looked around and there seems to be mixed answers regarding VPN usage. I just want to load PIA on it so each connection is protected/routed through my VPN.

One little-known fact about the TP-Link OnHub is, although it has antennas all around it, it has one big one facing out the front (opposite side of the cables). If you need more power in a particular direction, point the front of the router in that direction.
