    Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite Revisited

    Agreed. As far as I can tell, there really aren't many router only products for the consumer market. Perhaps they'll arrive with the whole mesh network systems market getting more mature?

    Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite Revisited

    Bought an ER‑X just recently. I'm not a network professional at all, but got it up an running after a few tries. It's certainly not as userfriendly as many consumer routers, but it is a very small and nice little unit. I got it because I also recently got a pair of mesh network wifi AP's...

    eero Announces Its Next Generation

    Eero seems like a nice system in many ways, but it's not available here in Denmark. Not sure whether it's at all available outside the USA? EDIT: It's still only available in the USA.

    Ubiquiti AC Pro and AC Lite Access Points Reviewed

    That's what I've heard from others too, it might very well not be the fastest, but it's very reliable and fast enough. It'd likely be my choice if I had the option, but half our house isn't cabled and it'll be quite the effort to do that which means I'm looking at Orbi instead.

    Mesh Mashup Redux - NETGEAR's Orbi Checks In

    Thanks for the reply. Having several iOS devices in the house, including the wifes phone, the issue with Apple devices is quite worrying. I do also know that all the complaints should be taken with a grain of salt. People generally only post on forums if they have issues, rarely do they post on...

    Mesh Mashup Redux - NETGEAR's Orbi Checks In

    Quick question: Are people still happy with the Netgear Orbi? Is it stable? I'm considering buying a set...

    What's next in Wi-Fi?

    Transfer from laptop to asus router is wireless, rest is gbit wired. It also goes through a cheap netgear gbit switch. Edit - my setup: Wan (fiber box) - wifi router - netgear switch. Connected to that switch is: Synology NAS, AppleTV4, Yamaha receiver, Sonos Connect.

    What's next in Wi-Fi?

    Ah, yeah of course. Not really interested in such products. Been using an Asus AC66U for the last couple of years and it's been fine except for the CPU which wasn't powerful enough. Transferring data to my NAS from my laptop would peg the CPU on the router and cause stutter in video streaming on...

    What's next in Wi-Fi?

    Thanks for the quick replies. From what I understand, what has been announced at CES will likely not be any better than the Orbi. I have a nice fast router (Turris Omnia), but I'm not sure the WiFi is good enough since I got a small complaint from the wife :) That's why I'm considering the Orbi...

    What's next in Wi-Fi?

    Is there any new stuff on the way in the WiFi world or is Netgear Orbi simply the way to go for the forseeable future? (I would use them in bridge mode)

    Turris Omnia: hi-performance & open-source router

    Didn't know that, but sounds logical. My Merlin firmware based Asus router continues serving a good purpose btw. - now at my mother and father in law

    Turris Omnia: hi-performance & open-source router

    Yes, exactly, the advanced interface is LUCI. The router also have something called the Foris web interface, which is used for initial and basic setup. The Turris got 2GB memory and 8GB flash storage.

    Turris Omnia: hi-performance & open-source router

    Okay, I bought one to replace my Asus AC66U. Don't buy this right now if you want a router with a fully featured and easy to use interface. Basic functionality is there, but the rest is done through either a more advanced webgui or the command line. In other words, the software is a work in...

    Turris Omnia: hi-performance & open-source router

    It seems the Turris Omnia is now shipping and customers seem pretty happy with it, though it's still missing some software features. Sounds like the router packs a lot of power. Some user reviews can be found here: https://www.alzashop.com/turris-omnia-2-gigabytes-d4480217.htm#recenze...
