    Hi,
    So whats your opinion on ASUS RT-AC3100 router [the black one]? Refurbished goes for 139$ as far as wifi it wont be worse then my DIR-882 that has 4x4 and 4x4 750Mb on 2.4Ghz
    Plus ill get Merlin and ASUS gaming features like WTFast network + Dual WAN
    Amazon has bunch of negative reviews so i wonder if this model is problematic?

    Or maybe I should pay 180$ for ASUS AC2900 or 230$ for ASUS RT-AX92U?

    P.S.

    I got the AX11000 for 360$ and then canceled it, I mean I dont have any AX devices, and single 2.5port is unusable.

    ive had the 3100 since it came out np whatsoever, works great when the grandkids are over streaming and playing on their ipads. as far as i can tell the wtfast does nothing at all - waste of time and effort imo but others mileage may vary.
