Thanks for your feedback.I've got an RT2600AC in one of our offices at work. It's generally a reliable router has good performance and a decent web interface.
USG is definitely better though.
Thanks for your feedback.
Better as in the settings available?
Would the USG not be a tad overkill for a single user on a network? I do like the idea of having everything being modular as such so if a part fails you don't have to swap the lot.
That’s pretty feature-rich. Now, it could all be marketing spiel, and not work very well at all.
It does look (on paper) like it has the USG beat for features though.
I keep telling you, just get a BT Smart Hub or a Mikrotik hAP AC. Both are great options for much less money.
Im sure I also told you there is no chance I would buy a smart hub. My brother's have it and it's absolutely rubbish. Plus I've already got a standalone modem.
Mikrotik is in the short list though.
Lol. If you really think the Smart Hub is absolutely rubbish then you’ll probably be disappointed with most AC routers. The Smart Hub is consistently a top performer in all WiFi speed tests carried out and it has some of the best channel hopping routines to select the correct Wi-fi channel in your environment. To get that functionality on a Ubiquiti Access Point you have to buy the AP-AC-SHD which is in the region of £400.
There is no magic with WiFi. It’s a transmitter that can’t put out any transmit power (including antennae) than legally allowed so that leaves receiver antenna design as the only way to improve range.
Beyond that a modem is a modem is a modem and although we’re discussing some pretty fancy features don’t forget that the Smart Hub is designed from the ground up to handle IPV6 and IPTV. Because you need those for BT’s TV offering. While I understand that the Smart Hub doesn’t have screens and screens of options it has most of the options anyone could need. It’s just deeply unfashionable because it’s the freebie one that BT give you when you sign up and everyone sticks it behind the tv (where they specifically say not to put it) and then complains about poor WiFi performance. So they get a Unifi Access Point and stick it high on a wall or ceiling and it’s the second coming of WiFi. If you put the Smart Hub in the same location you’d probably see no difference.
But you don’t want one so I won’t mention it again
