What wifi router
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:11:15 AM »
Morning

I've recently added ADSL (AXXESS via telkom line) to my home, but still need to purchase the router. What should I look at?

ADSL: uncapped, 4mb/s
Budget <R 1000
Uses: movies, sport, music on AV (mostly streaming &/ showmax)
Appliances: 3-4, AV, and then mostly smart appliances (2 phones and 1 or 2 tablets)

Any suggestions?

Thx

You don't need anything too insane at that 4mb/s but you will want a fairly reliable internal network (hardware dependant as opposed to linespeed).

For overall reliability and the capacity for 3rd party firmware, I suggest ASUS.
