CNET editor Dong Ngo proves that it's not long or short but the quality that counts with the new RTA15 High Power Dual Band AC 700mW Wi-Fi Router from Amped Wireless.
The Amped Wireless RTA15 is a decent Wi-Fi router, but better firmware is needed for it to live up to its high cost and our expectation.
CNET editor Dong Ngo picks the bottom five 802.11ac-enabled Wi-Fi routers. These are the ones to avoid when choosing a home router.
Amped Wireless will showcase its latest high-power Wi-Fi devices at CES 2014, including the RTA30 router and the REA33 Range Extender, both offering a combined Wi-Fi speed of up to 1900Mbps on both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz frequency bands.
With top performance and friendly pricing, the Trendnet TEW-818DRU is a excellent choice for those wanting a robust home network.
Though feature-rich, the Skydog's hardware is too slow and limited to justify its high cost and ongoing subscription pricing.
At CES 2013, Amped Wireless showcases its first 802.11ac range extender and USB 3.0 802.11ac adapter.
If you can afford the hefty price tag, the Linksys WRT1900AC Wi-Fi router is easily one of the best home routers on the market.
The Actiontec gets the job done for those who want to quickly extend their home network without much concern about performance.
The lack of Gigabit Ethernet in many ways cancels out the Netgear R6100's support for the fast 802.11ac standard and makes it just an average Wi-Fi router.
