Mikrotik or pfSense + Ubnt would demolish all of these for a fraction of the cost.
And not to mention the result would look way better than those routersGet a ZyXEL router, cheapest one and hook it up to a ubiquiti AP and it will put any of those suggestions to shame.
After completing a new round of testing, we had planned to recommend D-Link’s DIR-880L as the best Wi-Fi router for most people. But D-Link has told us that it plans to discontinue the DIR-880L before the end of this year. We still think the Archer C7 is an excellent router and there’s no need to replace it if you already have one and it’s working well for you. But we now plan to test a few more routers and publish a new version of this guide when we’ve found a suitable replacement. If you’re looking for something with a bit more power and features, we think you should get the Netgear R8000 instead of the R6400.
I won't call them journalists...This article has stuff all to do with comparative testing of ANY routers.
So can the author (certainly NOT a journalist) explain how they ascertained "best wi-fi router" for us? Ah, specifications & "international reviews" - but why no links to these "international reviews"?
So, this is an opinion piece. And should be highlighted as such on the article.
At best it is simply a list of some of the the most expensive routers available - without comparative shopping!
The author couldn't even cross reference results from rpm's article 2 months ago which at least had a comparison between 2 Asus units: https://mybroadband.co.za/news/wireless/213982-get-yourself-a-great-wi-fi-router-it-is-worth-it.html
That's farking retarded.
Most routers are setup and forgotten about. R 5k+ for a router? I would just get a cisco router for reliability /done
For distribution the Unifi wins.Get a ZyXEL router, cheapest one and hook it up to a ubiquiti AP and it will put any of those suggestions to shame.
