Which Router?

162 99 June 20, 2020 at 01:28 PM
I'm in the market for a new router (my router/modem combo isn't working with Comcast anymore)

TP-Link AX1500 or TP-Link AC1900?

These will be paired with the MB7621 (I'm buying this also)

I've got the 300mbs plan with Xfinity. TIA

I am of the opinion Wifi 6 isn't worth investing in right now unless your router supports the 6ghz band that's coming to revision that was approved earlier this year. Either way unless your devices are top of the line and brand new you likely can't take advantage of 802.11AX or 6ghz yet.That said $80 isn't a bad price for a mid range router if it does everything else you need well and needed one today.

You might want to look at this deal for a little more

But from reading posts it seems many people are not happy with TP Link, I had an issue with one years ago that I attribute to heat. I have had Linksys since then with no issues at all, now they do tend to be pretty pricey and there are others you can use too.

My 2 cents, I also have a netgear triband mesh that is pretty sweet, I like the 2 ethernet ports on the satellites they move more traffic to the 2nd backhaul band without using any other bandwidth

Might be too pricy, but I can recommend the Asus RT-AC86U at about $185

I am currently running the TP Link S4 Deco. It's been pretty solid. So nice not to have to choose a different access point on my phone depending on where I am.
(My 2 old AP's overlapped just enough that my devices wouldn't switch to the closer AP)

I use the Wifi Manager app for android to auto switch between AP's. You can set the decibel levels to tell it when to switch.
