Product Comparison: Asus Rt-Ac66U Vs Tp-Link Archer C7, Product Comparison: Asus Rt

my ISP provider will increase my internet speed from 300mbps to 600mbps. I currently have router provided by ISP, gigabit lan ports and 600mbps 5ghz wifi, which i probably willl need to keep becouse it accepts optic fibre. Iam thinking about upgrading the wifi becouse of the range which is not excelent. In my room I get around 60mbps now, and I would like to utilize as much speed as I can. Iam thinking about buying either ASUS RT-AC66U B1 or TP-LINK Archer C7 AC1750 and replace the current wifi with the new router. I can get the TP LINK + extender to make mesh network for the same price I can get the ASUS. I also thought about just connecting cable to the router by ISP and get the cable to my room where I connect it to the router. Will this be neccesary ? I would connect TV, PS4 and maybe laptop by cable in this case as well. 

 

Thanks for help

Won”t cut it,you need at least a AC3100 for those kind of speeds.

Don”t use two routers. You will run into dual NAT and that can cause all sorts of problems.

 

Get an access point instead. For example something from Ubiquiti line-up.

They can also be set to access point modes. Good point for ubiquity.

Some of them can, yes, but I am not sure which ones exactly. But you might as well just get an AP then.

Ubiquity solutions provide only one or two glan ports, while I could utilise all 4 from the Asus or tp link router. 

 

And what is your idea about going with router and extender or just main router? Or bring cable to my room where I connect it to router and make it access point there, and just connect TV, computer, ps4 with cable as well?

Get a network switch if you need more LAN ports than your router can supply.

Extenders are crap, they increase your latency much more (you have double the wireless “path” to go through).

Only some have the feature but you can do it in all routers, just turn off dhcp, connect the router to a LAN port and give it a static LAN ip on the same subnet as the rest of the network.
