Looking fo a new adsl+wifi router

Posted on 2014-08-22

Right now, at home I can only connect using a adsl2+ 10mbps  and N wireless option.  I´m talking about a linksys wag320n

At home, there many devices
2 Iphone 5S
2 Ipads
1 55' SmatTV and IPTV

The problem is when I´m hard working downloading files (sometimes I work at home), using the TV, using ipads and more and....although I dont use the 100% of the internet  link, sometimes, the signal is Iost and  all wireless devices are disconnected

I´m thinking about a new router with wireless or, second option,  use this router but connect a wrt1900ac to give us wifi.

Any idea?

    You should try some wifi app to see all the wifi signals and channels in the neighborhood. If it gets too overloaded, you need to change to a less busy channel. If that doesn't work, maybe it's time for 5GHz (dual band, so if the TV doesn't support 5 GHz, it has the "normal" wifi to fall back to).

    You should forget about getting a router that has ADSL built in, and just get a separate DSL modem, and a good router. There are no good combination dsl routers. Theya are all mediocre at best when it comes to routing and wifi features. You should get any DSL router that your ISP supports, and then get something like an Asus RT-N66U (which is the best 802.11n router by far), or the Asus RT-AC68U(which is one of the best 802.11ac routers)

    then, you think asus AC68 is more powerful than 1900AC linksys, dont you?

    And, what about RT-AC87U?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, the Asus is more powerful and more stable. But the AC87U is very buggy, and you'll need to wait until they release a more stable firmware for it.

     Also, just FYI, unless your MBP has an 802.11ac adapter (and the rest of your devices are definitely 802.11n), you won't be using most of the advantages of the AC routers.
