    Replacing RT-AC68P mesh or not

    Although I do live in a brick house, I think Ill just get an AX86U and be done with it. Thanks

    Replacing RT-AC68P mesh or not

    Curious why is the mesh not a good thing to set up in a smaller home? What is the disadvantage of a mesh network that I am not seeing? I could do a wired backhaul if needed, they can be on opposite ends of the house too if needed. Also you saying that those routers aren't going to have the same...

    Replacing RT-AC68P mesh or not

    Ive had this AC68P for a few years or so, cant remember exactly. The 5ghz range on it has always been terrible and its always had trouble when a lot of devices connect to it on wifi. I loaded Merlin onto it and its been mostly ok, but still its starting to show its age a little bit I think. Ive...

    AC68P issues with multiple devices

    I dont think there has been a firmware update for the router for quite some time, but yes I saw that and I will try. I ran QOS for a while but it slowed down my entire connection, like capped it to a hundred megs, so I turned it off. There are no free 2.4g channels around me, Ive checked them...

    AC68P issues with multiple devices

    This router has always given me issues when multiple devices have been connected to wifi. We have what I would consider an average number of devices connected. 2 phones, 2 tablets for the kids, a fire tv and a fire stick. The only things that really stream though are the tablets and the fire...

    AC68P Slow Wifi Issues

    Recently I've begun having some issues with the wifi performance of this router. When multiple devices are ruining its running out of bandwidth. The issue is compounded that I have project fi and all my phone calls are over wifi. Even with nothing else running my call quality is not great, but...

    Old router cant keep up after internet upgrade

    I currently have a WRT 54G loaded with DDWRT. I just upgraded from 25 Mb to 75 and the old linksys cant handled it. Im maxing out about 42 Mbps or so wired so its time for a new one. I have a Zoom 5341J cable modem and I dont think thats an issue, but Ill list it here anyway. Speed is...

    Cheap and Fast router? Do they exist?

    Thanks that helps. Ill check pricegrabber, I was only looking on pricewatch before. I honestly think I may try and find a cheap wrt54 somewhere and go with that. I know they're stable and the have a good reputation. That is unless I find a smokin deal on an N router, but they're still running...

    Cheap and Fast router? Do they exist?

    The Ps3 does have Gigabit Ethernet, but like I said it doesn't really natter that much. I also know everything will run at g speed and that's the basic problem. All the test are at N speeds as far as I can tell and it makes it hard to determine how the router will perform at g speeds. I...

    Cheap and Fast router? Do they exist?

    Ok I will. I just figured with my PS3 it may be beneficial, but honestly Ive thought about it and it will only be really fast from the Ps3 to the router and back, then its at the mercy of my internet connection. Also I dont need N, so that probally helps, but again it seems that the N ones are...

    Cheap and Fast router? Do they exist?

    I look at all the router and it seems that the most expensive ones are also the fastest. Thing is it seems that these expansive fast ones are also cluttered with a bunch of useless, to me, bells and whistles. Is there a reasonably priced fast router that's just basic? It would be nice if it...

    question about DSL and wireless router

    think I may have gotten this figured out. I did a little searching, becasue I knew there was something I should have done. I found something that said to change the routers ip so it was on a different subnet. I did that restarted the router and the computer. everything seems to be running fine...

    question about DSL and wireless router

    just a little update. I have the wireless shut off and an running wired to the router from the desktop. I am now experiencing the same timedout connections to websites and overall slow browsing I was on the laptop. there has to be a configuration issue with the router, or its the router itself...
