    "This is a very reliable router that offers good speed and range. Some have reported connection drops and some of the ports at the back getting broken easily. I've had this for about 6 months now and no issues so far. Best of all, since this is an older model, you can get it for much cheaper now."

    "This is the first tri-band router that I have ever owned and that third 5Ghz antenna really does make a difference in the overall stability and speeds of my Internet connection. It's pricey but the performance and future-proofing that you get are worth it in my opinion."

DID YOU KNOW?

Wi-Fi is not short for "wireless fidelity"? The term is a trademarked term meaning IEEE 802.11x. The truth is that Wi-Fi is not short for anything and it never was. The confusion stems from a brief period early in the days of the Wi-Fi Alliance. A tag line that stated, 'The Standard for Wireless Fidelity.' This was not part of the original name and was not created by Interbrand. It was as an afterthought in an attempt to help users make sense of the new and somewhat nonsensical word, Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi is only one of the technologies encompassed by Wireless Technology. It works in conjunction with other devices to send data over the air rather than over wires. This includes cellular communications and networking with wireless adapters and wireless accessories. As Internet connection speeds improve, demand for better wireless devices goes with it. Everyone is always looking for ways to get the best out of their Internet connection. Wireless routers get more advanced and introduce new features every year. This is to meet users' ever-changing needs and demands. It used to be what was the best wireless router for home use. Now, some building owners offer free Wi-Fi to their tenants. This has given rise to the demand for the best routers for apartment buildings as well. With the gaming industry in full swing, gamers have been looking for the best routers for gaming too. The wireless router market will only continue to grow to meet the demands of the Internet and its users.

    "Bought this out of a whim and I was never able to test its "mesh option" as I never bought any of those additional accessories for it. Taken as a standalone unit though, it works quite well. I did not get much of a speed drop as I reached the 150 feet and above mark."
