    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    Seems like not much new has come out in the AC router department that people like overall better than the likes of, say, the Asus 68/66u? Or has that changed at this rate? I know we've had a generation or two for stuff to mature since. Has anything solidified since that's newer that has caught...

    Backup/Overflow storage: Time Machine Vs. WD Mycloud?

    Given neither my iphone Macbook can have their storage upgraded, I probably need to look into an overflow/backup drive at some point I figured (especially for my phone/photos). The main two "cloud" type access from anywhere drives (which would be nice beyond just a simple local backup) seems...

    ASUS RT-AC3200 Tri-Band Wireless Router

    What's confusing me about Asus's offerings, is that the newer/faster the model, the less well it performs (even with newer firmware updates this appears to be the case)? I mean, I'm all set to get the 87u at this point, but even it's glowing reviews imply the 68u still can outperform it, is...

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    I actually have owned and mostly enjoyed my Netgear WNDR3700 for years, but it's time to replace it! I wish I could wait for the next wave, but I might need to act soon. Asus does seem to make the best (despite my initial interest in staying with Netgear and their slick, but mixed reviewed...

    Wireless router advice: Asus Or Netgear Nighthawks?

    Yeah, I read some reviews of the 87u though and was surprised that many of the seemed to imply that the 66 was actually better? Still confused about that. The Netgear Nighthawks seem to have the same issue if not even worse (their middle of the road one that was less new than what came after...

    Wireless router advice: Asus Or Netgear Nighthawks?

    Future proofing, definite yes. Also I do have "a" AC device already. I am also still somewhat convinced that the newest stuff out there also has stronger legacy support all the same, given more processing, more attenae, and more range "overall"(some even advertise gimmicks to squeeze out more...

    Thank you Crosshairs! That needless bit of babysitting went on WAY too long. Very glad not to be "obliged" with more unhelpful responses. Also thankful that one trouble maker didn't "ruin" the thread after all ^_^ . I'd also like to take this moment to remind future helpful and well meaning...

    Wireless router advice: Asus Or Netgear Nighthawks?

    I hear you on that, but I was sure that the AC routers did still have benefits for legacy devices? I mean, while the AC standard has higher range, I thought that some of what these newer routers have between more attenae and newer tech is better range/throughput for all involved? I mean, I...

    ANY-way, hopefully now we can get back to business with an adults only thread without anyone "crying" about anything (trolling a conversation is not a high ground or means to show you can handle anything btw, let that be a lesson kids), @heavenscloud, I still want to know if you've had any...

    I told you to go away once you started flaming/trolling and being rude, your continued interest in doing so proves no point except you shouldnt be trying to give advice when you dont understand how to have a constructive and non-dismissive conversation about it. You're in the wrong, and others...

    Wireless router advice: Asus Or Netgear Nighthawks?

    You'd be surprised what poking a mod by freely flaunting the forum rules will do, especially when you continue to harass other users in light of it. Also, I find it amusing that when you once seemed to care so much about your stance and knowledge, that you're now parading your rudeness and...

    Wireless router advice: Asus Or Netgear Nighthawks?

    Yeah I think someone pee'd in his oatmeal or something, since he's disproving his own point that he really has anything worth saying or listening to, and will seemingly troll until his posts are deleted and he is penalized... I guess that proves someone's point, just not his. I've also...

    Since you seem to be willfully trolling the thread at this point, I will gladly report your childish need to do so "free of charge" too. If you're trying to save face from your initial tantrum over this, it's not helping, just saying. Funny, my response was not disrespectful at all, it was your...

    Yeah, I'm thinking dragon may have forgotten what the whole damn point of this place is if he keeps evoking google and amazon in an ignoramic attempt to have me post about router stuff there. Gee, sorry I was taking up space in his private little home for conceitedness. Anyway, dragon, you are...

    Wireless router advice: Asus Or Netgear Nighthawks?

    If you're going to be snippy about it, you could also google other threads to contribute to instead of remaining here to give me crap for really no good reason? What I do understand is that you are presumptuous and easily agitated, so I will gladly speak with other people about this, how I...
