Looking for a new router with strong enough range

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I'm looking for a router for the apartment that I just moved to. I tried to gather as much info as I could, but if more is needed then please leave a reply.


ISP: Digi Hungary - 1000Mbps (realistic: 870-ish)


So In this new apartment (layout is attached below) we can only put the router in a specific place. The hall would be a better option, but there's no outlets there and my landlord is willing to buy a more expensive router if they don't have to drill the walls. So the goal is to fint a strong enough device.


I used a Tenca AC8 for the heatmap, unfortunately It could only deliver 300 Mbps over WiFi from 1 meter. The computer, that is the furthest from it only got around 40Mbps (2.4GHz). All 3 laptops are 802.11ac capable and they have to be connected through WiFi (Ethernet is not an option sadly). We all need at least 150 Mbps for work and entertainment.


These are my picks, does anyone have a suggestion or personal experience with them:

  • Asus AC65P
  • TP-Link Archer C80
  • TP-link AX10
