I have this router, and $299.00 is the price I paid six months ago, so it's not really a deal, but it does go out of stock very often. I have not had the 2.4 drop on me, and I also don't have AX enabled because I don't have any AX devices. I will say that the range is very very good. I did have an issue where my iPad just all of a sudden stop connecting and could not connect to 2.4 or 5ghz. I had to downgrade to WPA/WPA2 from WPA2/WPA3 in order for the iPad to connect again. I have not had this connection problem with any of my Windows and Android devices.

It replaces an Asus RT-AC66. Through walls and such, I could not get 5ghz more than 15-20ft through plaster walls. I could not get more than 30 ft on 2.4. Before I settled on this unit, I tried the Asus RT-AX58U. I was disappointed that it was only marginally better in range, so I returned that one and tested the Eero mesh. I didn't like the idea that I would have to pay for Child security, but obviously the mesh was really great. Finally this came into stock, and I was able to get one. It's true that it's not a gaming router, but that was not the intention of my purchase. I ended up using my RT-AC66 as an AP in my garage, and I'm pretty satisfied with my decision.

Is it worth the extra money to get this for a 2100 sq ft house, or should I go with the next model down? I pay for 600 mbps.

They should market this as Sauron's router.

Look into Kaspersky Safe Kids. I know some people may be concerned about Kaspersky as a whole but it is on my kids devices so nothing sensitive to lose IMO.

But I used to use Disney Circle built into my Netgear router, until I realized that enabling it severely limited the performance of the router. In addition, the free version is very limiting and does not work with cellphones.

I paid for a 1 year sub of safe kids for a little under $15. Gives me advance management, the software is installed on the device I want to protect and all my other devices and router run at full speed and capacity.

Got this the last time it was down to 299. Installed the beta firmware and its been running stable since August. Excellent range, better than the Asus AC87 it replaced. 40+ devices with a couple of power users. 3000 sq ft.

are you sure about it? I only see it has a 2.5G Ethernet port but not 10G.

They're rumors. I've had this for several months now. Not any issues on any of the bands. There may be some QA issues causing this.

I found that using DNS 1.1.1.3 and some of TP-Link's child lock-down, it's been sufficient for me. My kids aren't old enough to know what VPN is, and if there is a site that is blocked for myself, I can use a VPN to access it.

It was on sale when you bought it, but the point probably is that this sale price repeats itself.
