Just basic home use in an apartment building. Web-browsing, streaming, downloading, a little bit of gaming...You are right. I totally missed it in the initial descriptions. It does have both beamforming and MU-MIMO, however I don't see that it supports 3 simultaneous streams like the C80. It ONLY says MU-MIMO, not 3x3 MU-MIMO like the C80. That may or may not even matter to you.
Might help to know what the use case is?
Three names. EVGA. Corsair. Fractal design. If you ever have a choice between other companies and one of those, you choose one of those. They have superb customer service.As for the customer support, I don't recall the last time I ever had a good experience with any, so that doesn't really matter.
We you able to decide which one to pick? I'm also having a hard time choosing a good router. Here are my picks:Just basic home use in an apartment building. Web-browsing, streaming, downloading, a little bit of gaming...
Asus has good firmware support and I've used their ac58u for a long time. As for the customer support, I don't recall the last time I ever had a good experience with any, so that doesn't really matter.
I've never had any Tp Link model, but they seem to offer good quality for the price.
Overall, I don't have much experience with network equipment, I just buy what seems to offer the most for a lower price. Now I'm not so sure, since the product range in my country has reduced (probably due to the pandemic situation).
Can you expand on this please and explain why this is going to be a bigger deal than either WiFi6 or 6e, when we can expect to see this translate to devices, what kinds of devices or designations will support this and whether any of it might be compatible with anything that's even currently coming down the pipe to the consumer segment anytime soon? Or provide a link to an existing article or paper that does shed some light on these questions?The addition of the 6ghz radio band is going to be one of the largest things we have seen in many years.
