    No Wifi 6 if I’m not wrong?

        Doesn't change the fact that it's still plenty for the vast majority of people, having WPA3 is more important than faster wifi for lots of people.

        Unless you're streaming local 4k content off a home server, or other niche uses, 1750 is plenty. Having a large household, 5+ or so, could benefit from the improved mumimo in ax, but at that point I'd be spending more than $100…

          Totally agree and just to add, at 1.75 Gbps, that's 218 meg per second. If you encoded a 2 hour movie at a bitrate high enough to saturate that link, it would be 1.5 terabytes. So I'm pretty sure you'll be OK streaming multiple 4k videos encoded at sane settings on a 1750 link!

            @Joker042: Not quite how wireless speeds work out but yeah your conclusion is mostly correct! The 5ghz band is 1300mbit, and real world will depend a lot on distance and "stuff in the way".

            Example here of another 1300mbit device getting ~25mb/s at 15 meters. This will still easily cap out any internet connection and is plenty for a single 4k stream from a local server.

    any code for free shipping?

  •  

    actually, considering $15 shipping, the next model D-Link EXO AC1900 Smart Mesh WiFi Router for $128 with pickup from HN looks like a better choice

    •  

      This one claims to support WPA3, the EXO doesn't seem to? Not sure on all details, but just speed vs WPA3, I'd take the newer standard.

        Funny the comparison doesn't say WPA3.

  •  

    Are either of these likely to be a better bet than my aging TG799vac?

    •  

      Yes.

      Edit: actually, depends on how much a marginal gain is worth to you. And do you want a modem or just a router? Do you wasn't VOIP built in, because the Telstra box does ADSL and VoIP and is compatible with NBN.

      The 799vac also has decent AC WiFi, and is 1300Mbps according to https://bc.whirlpool.net.au/bc/hardware/?action=h_view&model...

      You might be better off buying a DIR-882 that can be found for around $100 new at times. Or an AX router. Or search for ac2600 router on Gumtree.

    My mate owned the D-Link EXO AC1900 and it was one of the worst routers ever, weak interface, cannot handle long-range bandwidth consistently and had to restart it multiple times to get a good connection, I would stay away from that brand

    Seeing The guys who know are here. I have the Archer Vr1600v (came with TPG) (AC1600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit VoIP VDSL/ADSL Modem Router
    Superfast Dual Band Wi-Fi: Up to 1.6Gbps Wi-Fi speed, 300Mbps 2.4GHz, 1300Mbps 5GHz)

    Would this be a significant upgrade? would i be better spending $50-$100 more and getting better yet?

      No. That unit has decent CPU and RAM. Ensure it is on the latest firmware and was quite decent when released.

      The AX standard is due for final release next month, so you will see some faster units released then, WiFi 6 -E

  •  

    hey everyone i have the following dink - DIR-890L router now its out of date im aware but what would you recomend to upgrade to
