    Would this offer any benefit to my existing setup?

    I have my ISP supplied modem/router that is connected to a OPNsense box which is connected to a 8 port gigabit switch. I have a Tenda MW6 mesh (3 nodes) that I use to cover my house.

      ISP routers are typically slower devices which may slow down fast internet such as 50 or 100Mbit. However, this is a very expensive device that would probably only benefit a scenario with many users. Something like an Asus RT-86U or cheaper RT-68 (or others) is much cheaper and probably more appropriate.

        I think if a mesh system is being used already, replacing with one RT-86, or worse RT-68 would not suffice. I'm in the same situation, where my RT-68 simply can't cope with 20+ devices by itself. Thinking about changing to a mesh system, or upgrade to a much stronger router (as above). ASUS allows you to use the old router as a mesh system, though that might not be needed.

      I'm interested in upgrading my 28.8 kilobaud Internet connection to a 1.5-megabit fiber-optic T1 line. Will you be able to provide an IP router that's compatible with my token-ring Ethernet LAN configuration?

      Pfsense here with unifi, I'm shocked at the cost of some home routers these days. But really 10 gig is abit too early considering how many people would have cards and devices to support this right now.

    Jesus… I know Amazon comments are to be taken with a grain of salt, but there is a strong consistent thread of instability in the 1 star comments. Who is this $615 router pitched at if it doesn't work reliably?

    I bought the same router from Mwave about 3 months ago. I use it with nbn HFC and haven't had any issues since turning it on. Very simple to set up. Price is a bit steep but it's future proof for WiFi 6, plus WPA3 will be added via software update soon.

    Get one of these Mikrotik RB4011 routers instead. The Mikrotik is cheaper, way more features and more powerful. https://mikrotik.com/product/rb4011igs_5hacq2hnd_in

    •  

      That actually looks like pretty good value. It would go nicely with the Mikrotik switch I was looking at earlier.

    •  

      Only 32but cpu, only Wifi 5, only dual band. Not really comparable but it is a cool product with its Enterprise features like SFP+

      •  

        I haven't seen any 64bit routers in this price range.

        Router has dual-chain 2.4ghz and quad-chain 5ghz.

    •  

      It looks good - costs around $400 ?

      For comparison around $260 gets a Ubiquiti Unifu USG (security gateway) and an Access Point (Lite).

      Or under $400 including 2 access points which will give better coverage than a single device.

      Deep packet inspection, intrusion detection/prevention, highly scaleable, great stats/graphs etc.

      Ive not used the Mikrotik gear so cant compare them.

      •  

        Mikrotik is the swiss-army knife of routers - It can do it all, but it has a somewhat steep learning curve.

    Dead tarantula anyone?

    The More and More antennas i see the more these routers are starting to cost ill stick with my trusty R7000.

  •  

    This is like the transformers looking commodore of routers. Just childish silly gimick rubbish. Go spend a fraction on a Ubiquiti AP or something decent, not the cartoon version of a router.

      Want till they add RGB lights to the antennas and double the price, calling it the L337 Demon Rapture X edition. The absolute ultimate gaming router guaranteed to reduce dropped bandwidth frames by .3% to drastically increase fps response time

      Ubiquity hardware sends telemetry and it cannot be turned off

      Sure, we made your Wi-Fi routers phone home with telemetry, says Ubiquiti. What of it?
      You didn't ask for it, we didn't tell you about it, but hey, it clears GDPR so what you gonna do?

      Agreed this bazillion antenna thing is just a gimmick though!

    I've had this router for about 4 months and it's been stable. I was previously using a RT-AC86U running Merlin and it was also an excellent stable router.

    Overall the only reason why I "upgraded" is because it was on sale (final cost $373.60) and was more future-proof with Wifi 6, link aggregation etc.

    •  

      "it's been stable"

      for that price, i wouldn't expect it to never need a reboot… EVER…including when you upgrade firmware (i.e. it should have two firmware chips and switch to the on with the newer firmware on the fly after the upgrade etc).

    •  

      may I know where and how did you get it for $373.60?
      Thanks
