    The current Touch P5 is a router in AP mode. It only shows wireless clients connected to it.

    Every router/AP I've ever owned has had some sort of display showing the clients connected to it. That's why I find it surprising that this one doesn't.

    went to walmart today. They had one AX1500. I was surprised they had 3 shelves of routers and modems. Netgear from the 1700 to the X4. 4 or 5 of every model ARIS modems.

    So I searched for Mikrotik related threads and posted some replies several weeks back.

    None are there now/ Any of my 2019 posts. What / why?

    PS: At this price are the any previous Archer 6 / 7 / 9 even worth touching?

    PS:

    Understanding & comparing the differences between various TP Link Archer products;
    A vs C i.e. A7 vs C7 etc or A6 vs A7 or C6 vs C7, the ones with MIMO and/ or not?

    Handling lots of smart home/ small Wireless N & AC devices?

    Once I better understand how to decode and compare them, I'll see what makes sense buying at market or sale prices.
