    Default router suggestion

    suggest me a router that can give me stable wifi signal for say 6-8 meter radius area. don't want to quote budget but suggest me something priced low but good price performance ratio.

    TP-Link WR720N, priced BDT 999/= [Retail]
    Best price/performance ratio.

    I had one 720n and that too the version w/o antenna, it used to cover 30-40 meters horizontally.

    If your target is only 6-8 meters I am going to echo Asif's suggestion, get the WR720N priced at 999 and the one with the antenna will cost you 1350 BDT. Both of them have awesome price to performance and pretty hard for anyone else to beat them. But if you need more than 150Mbps you might have to spend like 2k and get the TP link WR 840/841/842.

    do i need 300mbps router? kind noob in these. found an article
    thecyberfusion.com/150-mbps-vs-300-mbps-comparison-of-802-11-n-wireless-networks/
    which states difference in overall download speed through WAN. i know i will not get that kind of connection ever but its interesting to see those figures. what kind of real world difference we are taking about between 150mbps vs 300mbps router? and will the 720n with antenna improve the range?

    1. Do you need a 300Mbps router? If you use a lot of file transfer among devices connected to the router, say you are watching a full HD movie from another system connected to the same router, you need 300Mbps, although even with 150Mbps, you can still do it but might not be ideal for streaming 10-12GB sized movies. But for internet using, don't think you are going to get something like a 40-50Mbps connection or higher so this one will be fine. If you download a lot from the ftp and you download it using your wifi, you might want to get a 300Mbps one but I have used 150Mbps router and never faced any problem, always got the maximum speed that the ftp can support which is about 8-9MBps.

    2. For cheap routers the WAN port is limited to 100Mbps so no matter how fast your wifi (300/450Mbps) you will still get 100Mbps at best.

    3. Yes, it improves slightly over the 720N without the antenna.

    There was a time when 5 of us used a single SMC WBR14S-N5 150Mbps router, we played a lot of LAN multiplayer game with maybe torrent running on the background and maybe someone watching movie/series from someone's system, never faced any problem! But for now, if you have money to spare, get the 300Mbps.

    well i will be the only person using that router within my room or maybe adjacent to my room between my pc and phone. i don't watch movie in mobile (i mean why someone would) but i will be transferring essential document, flac album, and maybe some mobile game with big data for say 1/2 gb between these 2 device. i won't play lan also. so still i need 300mbps router?
    lol first thing came to my mind was the ad of oral saline company. "jibonta basaila"

I don't know if you want AC or not but I decided to get one is the price is really competitive and if I get devices in the future that support AC I can use it. If you don't need such a router right now you can stick to 150M or 300M N routers.
    hmm saw at bdshop website. priced at 6.5k. don't want to spend that much atm.

    Sadly we live in BD not UK.

    Don't think your phone will have anything above 150Mbps on n and if you have ac that's a different story but for ac you will have to spend way more so just be patient and get the 150Mbps.
    As you will be the only consumer, I think it will be fine.
