I second the Net Gear suggestion. It's what they do and they are good at it.

and of course i grealy appreciate your post and link. smile.gif your website helps alot thanks ! but may i know your opinion ?

SmallNetBuilder are probably the most respected consumer networking site but I understand you wanting more reviews. I've had a look around and all other reviews are just garbage, they have awful testing methodology.

 

Asus don't really have a networking pedigree, whereas TP-Link and Netgear do. Especially Netgear, who's products you'll see in businesses and companies everywhere.

you guys obviously know wayyy more than i do. so from the website smallnetbuilder they use extremely accurate tools compared to other websites that can be found from google ? because i know nothing about tools compared to you guys.
if netgear the top 1 product. it is top 1 . but does it have alot of compability issue and stuff ? besides performance since is top 1.
sorry first time buying networking stuff. im worried alot about issues that occur as it is my first time experience buying networking products.

It's not just that SmallNetBuilder have the tools, it's that the reviewers are competent. Although they do have a nice test setup. You can see their testing tech here:

http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-howto/32478-how-we-test-wireless-products-revison-8

http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-howto/32477-how-we-test-smallnetbuilders-wireless-testbed-v2-

 

Networking is fairly straight forward and built on standards. As long as a device supports the 802.11 standard (Wi-Fi) in any form it will work.

 

The Netgear R7000 will work out of the box, with no configuration needed. You can go into the GUI and set the router name, password, IP address etc but you don't have to if you don't feel comfortable.

The Netgear R7000 will work out of the box, with no configuration needed. You can go into the GUI and set the router name, password, IP address etc but you don't have to if you don't feel comfortable.
lastly i want to ask. since netgear R7000 is 2 years old. is there a new model of it ? or releasing soon ? should i wait for it ? will it be better the newer model etc
should i go for usb wireless or pci e adapater wireless. not sure which is better. but from what i heard pci-e is more stabil in a long run if im not moving my desktop around. i cant seem to find usb wireless and pci-e wireless, in smallnetbuild for the top 1 of its kind.
if pci-e is better do your have any top model or brand to recommend to go along with netgear r7000 ? so far i was going for Asus 68 pci-e
if usb wireless is better than pci-e do you have a model to recommend ?

There are higher end models than the R7000 but they aren't worth it. On paper they are better but in practice they often perform worse than the R7000. Plus they are 4x4:4 MIMO which no adapters support, most adapters don't even support 3x3:3.

 

Go for a PCIe adapter, they offer better performance. The Asus PCE-AC68 and TP-Link T9E are the top 2. What you go for depends on price and aesthetics. I hate the look of the red on the Asus so I went with the TP-Link.

and one more thing the Asus DSL-68U has an ADSL/VDSL modem built in. It just saves you from having to use an external modem.
does that mean DSL 68U is
faster than a modem (provided by my ISP) + Asus AC 68U ?
since DSL 68u is all in one will it be better and faster ?
or the default modem +Asus AC68U is faster ?

You can buy a third party antenna, or antenna extension cable.

Something like this for example (note that you would need 3 of them in this case): http://www.amazon.com/Generic-RP-SMA-Antenna-Extension-Magnetic/dp/B00KHKGLE2/ref=sr_1_50?ie=UTF8&qid=1444152095&sr=8-50&keywords=wifi+antenna

Euhm... OP, you just cannot use anything you like. There are some rules about gain and dB or you could end up having no signal at all or just blow up your router...

I'm serious! I just don't remember what it was...

Might only apply to 3th party antennas or also 3th party (extension) cables...

Search google or call in for smarte OCN-ers than me tongue.gif
