The Arris SURFboard AC3200 Wi-Fi Router? Let's call it Bob

Internet Routers
[MUSIC] Hi guys, this is the ARRIS SURFboard AC3200 Wi-Fi router G.hn, model SBR-AC3200P. Now that's a crazy name, so I'm gonna call it Bob from now on. Okay Bob is a tri band Wifi router meaning it has one 2.4Ghz band and two 5Ghz Band. Basically it mean it can handle more 5Ghz Wifi appliance before slowing down and in my testing that worked pretty well with fast Wifi speed and very stable Wifi signals. But it's range wasn't the best ever seen. Which brings us to what makes this router special. It has built-in support for fast power lines. And that means when you plug it into power, which you have to do to make it work in the first place It would also turn that power socket into the full and of a power line connection. Which basically turn the power line of your home into network cable, on the other end you can use this ARRIS SURFboard Gigabit G.hn extender model SBX-1000P. Which I can call Suzie from now on or this ARRIS SURFboard AC1200 Wi-Fi hotspot extender G.hn model SBX-AC1200P which I will call Cindy from now on. Suzie is a powerline adapter. She has 1 gigabit net port here to host a wide client such as desktop computer In my testings, it went really well with the top sustained speed of close to 310 Mbps which is about 4 times the speed of a regular fast internet connection, quite impressive. [UNKNOWN] quite large so finding a good wall socket for her is a big Freaky, but again it was because Cindy over here actually much larger. That's because apart from the network port, she also has a built-in WiFi access point. And the coolest thing is once plugged in, she went immediately and automatically replicate the WiFi network of the router. And that means you can quickly extend Bob's WiFi network to the Far corner of the house by plugging in Cindy at that corner. And all of that works pretty well in my testing. So, the question is, how much? Now, Bob cost us $300, Suzie here $60, and Cindy $100 So basically if you're going to spend 400$ for Bob and Cindy you would for sure have a WiFi that work that's large enough to cover a big home. And if that is not enough well spend another hundred dollars for another Cindy and it will be all set. However there's no reason to get just Bob alone because he is more expensive why not better than any computing devices. And neither Suzy or Cindy would work with our bot. And that's about as true as [UNKNOWN] would be so boring and way less sexy without me. And that's because I'm **** Ngo who you will continue to call **** Ngo because that's only because I changed it. Like, at all. Ever. [MUSIC]
