Hello everyone and happy 2023.

A suggestion: I have an Asus RT-AC68U router in cascade on DMZ with a HUAWEI FASTGate WIFI LAN MODEM router model DN8245F2 and it works quite well.
I would like to replace everything with a single Modem Router, also from Asus, but which has the same or better performance than the RT-AC68U.
I tried with a DSL-AC68U, but the performance was about 60% of RT-AC68U.
What do you recommend that is not too expensive and has good speed?

Thank you

1) remove News tag, no news in this thread
2) keep the ISP provided modem for best compatibility with your ISP and get a better router, if you want

Happy New Year!
The RT-AX68U is the minimum upgrade to your network.

There are no modem/routers worth considering, imo.

What do you recommend that is not too expensive and has good speed?
Personally, I recommend against going with a modem/router combo. The day you decide to switch from DSL to cable or FTTH, you will have to trash it and buy both a new modem and a new router. Keep them separate, so they can be upgraded separately.
