Need an alternative to my router/modem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi fellow LTTians,

Need help with choosing a nice alternative router / modem for my house. Currently I'm on a 200 Mbps connection using "Tenda AC9 AC1200 Smart Dual-Band Gigabit WiFi Router". And I reside in a place where I've 50 Mbps fibernet connection which is connected to D-link DIR-615 Wireless Router (which I guess is not a dual band router) and I play from a distance of around 25-30 speed. I get packet losses etc. I've two ideas

Idea 1: replacing my Tenda router with an more powerful router and to use Tenda for this 50 Mbps connection. 

Idea 2: replacing D-Link wireless router with an router which has better WiFi range and a dual bandwidth connection.

 

Most probably I'll stick with idea 2 which is lot cheaper for me xD

Please suggest me a good router (s) for both of the ideas. Both 200 Mbps and 50 Mbps is used for online gaming and endless video streaming etc.

 

I'll purchase the modem/router from the following sites

Amazon India

Flipkart

TheItDepot

MD Computers

 

Please suggest me a viable option from the aforementioned sites for my use case. Thanks in advance.

is there not also the option "LAN cable"?

No LAN is not possible, since I'm playing from another room and it's around 25-30 feet away.

it's not possible since I'm on a rented place, I cannot drill or install cable routers etc. That's why I'm looking for wireless solution.

The biggest question is what is the house made out of? Because buying a better router might not help if your home is built out of Concrete or something similar.

Concrete only, but the thing is from my desk to router there's not much obstruction.

Doesnt matter. Concrete is very dense. WiFi isnt designed to penetrate that material.

BUMP, I've decided to go with, TP-Link AC2300 Wireless WiFi Router. If there's any better router / modem at this same price point, please intervene me. Still not finalized on my decision, so I'm open to changes. Please do suggest.

You do know this is just a router right? No modem is built in to that model. So if your looking to replace what the ISP gave you then you still need a modem.

I just need a router since how my network is setup is, OFC cable will come to a junction box in my apartment where it gets demodulated and the signal is passed to my house via cat cable, so I can directly connect it to the rj 45 socket of the router.
