    what are the benefits of getting this router?

  • -1 vote

    Can this be used as a mesh router?

  •  

    Would this be better than a nighthawk r7000?

    •  

      R7000 is AC1900. In that case, you will need to get WRT1900/ WRT1900ACS instead at least I guess.

      •  

        if your only concerned about wifi speeds, i think at this points its all about other features and latency…

        •  

          From my memory, R7000 and WRT1200/1900 both can install OPENWRT/ LEDE now. So from functionalities perspective, it would be the same.

          Thanks

  •  

    Is this better than ASUS DSL-AC68U?

  •  

    I have the WRT1900ACS and it works great with any open source software. I'm using Davidc502 LEDE. I also bought this to use Untangle as a dedicated firewall and have a Meraki AP too. Overkill? hahaha

    •  

      Is LEDE the same as Gargoyle? i.e. it can do shaping, quotas and URL filtering?
      Will this router slow down when it does the above? Cause I have Gargoyle running on WNDR3700v2 and the speeds slows from 94mbps to 62mbps. I switched the above features off and I get back to full speed.

    They reckon that this is going to be $79.98 tomorrow?.

      Yes. Though a 52c saving may not be worth waiting for - particularly if they sell out.

      • +1 vote

        Yes that's the thing is if they sell out by tomorrow. It's possible.

        But then again tomorrow if it might be still that extra 15% off in the cart by the seller but plus extra 20% off from the upcoming eBay coupon on top of that?. That would be an even more ripper deal if that was so.

        •  

          Don't think it works like that.

          @wooldogs:

          Yeah i should have meant an extra 20% off the sellers discounted price. It won't be a 35% off total. It's already today the 15% in the cart by Wireless1 and that PICK5 5% off eBay coupon applies too for 5% off from that sellers discounted price. It would be the same with that 20% off eBay coupon tomorrow instead of today's 5% off coupon that's if the sellers 15% off in the cart still exists then. In that case it would be 15% off and then an extra 20% off the sellers discounted price from the cart. Fingers crossed that the seller hasn't dropped that 15% off in the cart tomorrow. :)

        •  

          @wooldogs:

          Yeah any way. Wireless1 dropped that 15% off in the cart today. So any how it's 20% off total on today's deal and there is stock.

    i really want one of these despite having nearly no use for it (no problems running wifi off my crummy netgear optus cable modem…)

    its like the modern-day equivalent of the WRT54G (which was a super awesome router back in the day).

    Is it suitable for NBN FTTP and VOIP? Currently with Spintel and using their modified ROM Netcomm. Is it replaceable with my Netcomm.

  •  

    I am trying to decide between this and the ea6900 for a dedicated router foe home automation. The ea6900 seems to have better range but i really like the look of this one plus ability to run custom firmware out of the box.

    •  

      The EA6900v1.0 or v1.1 can also run custom firmware. You can install Merlin, Tomato or DD-WRT.
      Here it is running Merlin firmware.

      •  

        So which one would you get? Tip me over the edge lol

        • +1 vote

          Installing custom firmware on the wrt1200ac is easier. You can run DD-WRT or openwrt/lede.
          DD-WRT is easy to run, while openwrt/lede is more for the tinkerer. I personally like openwrt/lede. :)

          Getting custom firmware on the EA6900 v1.0-1.1 involves editing the boot-loader, which is risky and can brick your router if done incorrectly.

          That said, merlin on the EA6900 is great, nice interface with tons of easy to use options.

          So which one?

          If you like easy no risk custom install firmware, go with the WRT1200ac v2 running DD-WRT or openwrt/lede.

          Or, if you feel comfortable in editing the router's boot-loader, follow this guideand mod the EA6900 to merlin, tomato or DD-WRT.

          @chupa chup: already bought the ea6900 before you sent this :) thank you

    SO TEMPTING
