    Default Suggest a Gigabit LAN + AC wifi Router

    Hey, I want to beef up my home wifi and LAN system so there is fast W/LAN transfers.

    So I am looking for a decent AC router that also has gigabit ethernet ports.

    here are a few that I found interesting:

    https://ryanscomputers.com/netis-wf2...i-antenna.html

    https://ryanscomputers.com/network/r...ss-router.html

    https://ryanscomputers.com/network/r...ss-router.html

    Which one would be the best choice? (My budget is around 5k-6k no more)

    the router from netis looks promising though never heard about them before and d-link routers are kinda confusing some of them goes well and some doesn't but overall i think netgear one would be perfect plus it has many popular custom firmware compared to others on internet

    You won't find any decent router with those specs at that price range.

    My recommendation:
    Asus RT-N18U or, TP-Link Archer C7
    Both are around 8-9k.

    Those only have good specs on paper but real world wireless performance won't be that good.

    If you can't increase your budget D-Link DIR-860L B1 version is around 6k (OpenWRT supported).

    TP-Link Archer C7 v2 (from BD) or Linksys WRT AC1200 would be better (Referbished/New from Amazon). SNB Review.

    Totolinks A3002RU is very good for its price (5k only, but u can get it for cheaper if u look). As far as i remember it performs slightly better than a TP-Link Archer C7 (Saw some benchmarks comparing the 2)

    Mi router 3 is good as well but it doesnt have Gigabit ports.

    Giddy can be traced back to the same Germanic root *gud– that has given us the word God

    3002RU isnt better than a Archer C7(I confused it with Arther C50)

    The 2nd link compares these 3.

    Note Archer C7 and C50 is not the same router C50 is priced around 4-4.5k.

    Mi router 3 is good as well but it doesnt have Gigabit ports.

    @coldfire7 you recommended me the WRT54GL from Linksys which I'm still using today with DDWRT flashed.

    But I'm thinking of changing it to something new, as the router drops connection frequently and I don't think it can handle the number of devices in my house today. Will Linksys still be a good choice now? Budget is around 7-8k. I'd really love the brand to be Linksys as my current one served so well.

    **Obligatory PFsense shameless plugin**

    Do you have an old pc lying around? Then purchase and extra gigabit nic and turn your unused computer into a serious routing beast with

    PFSENSE


    and then purchase a gigabit network switch for sweet gigabit transfer speeds. hook up the switch to 2/3 access points around your home for awesome wifi coverage.

    You can get some decent ASUS routers at that price point. ASUS stock firmware has changed drastically and has most of the useful features you get from third parties.

    I do have a PC lying which I plan to use as a headless Linux server using SSH. I might give it a go actually, what are the things I need to buy apart from the NICs?

    I really want a Linksys, but will look into the Asus models. What are you using now?

    Using two at the moment. RT-18U (Tk 8500) for over a year. Downside is if you enable dual-2.4G networks then throughput is restricted to 300M as opposed to 1G.

    The other one is a 1300-UHP (Tk 9,000). This fixes the throughput issue but for some reason it does not have a BW limiter for the second network whereas the first one does. This is also a dual band router.

    - - - Updated - - -

    RT-18U has third party firmware support too. I started using stock because I noticed that within a year a third party firmware requires a reset or tweaking of some sort. The official firmware eventually added all the features (QoS, BW Limiter) on par with third party but is of course fully stable.

    @diapanzan That's really basically all you need. One port for the internet line and another to feed to a switch. From there you can connect as many devices you want.
    Also, pfSense supports plugins. One such plugin I was looking into was able to block ads. So basically you could set up a network wide adblocker and protect the less tech savvy among the family.

    Look into the video I've linked above. It should give a good jumping point into this rabbit hole.

    I am currently running Ubuntu Server on virtual machine on my laptop.

    So without any waiting just fire a up a VM and get tinkering.
    You could even virtualize pfsense and ubuntu on the same computer on different vms by using a hypervisor like vmware. Possibilities are endless.

    Asus RT AC66U (~10K) w/ Tomato Advanced or
    if you want a Linksys you can import a Linksys WRT1200AC (~$70-100) and run it w/ OpenWRT/LEDE or
    Netgear R7000 (~14K, I know expensive but a rly good router) w/ Tomato Advanced or
