Default Linksys WRT1900AC oR ASUS AC2400 RT

Hey all,

I'm new to the community, i was thinking i could find many wifi/router master minds here for sure for some tips

i'm thinking about getting a mew router, and i really wanna get the best one this time and from what i found so far currently the best ones out there is the Linksys WRT1900AC & the ASUS AC2400 RT, i'm just having a hard time to pick which one to buy.

I know they are pretty pricey but that's not an issue, i have over 12 devices at home using wifi and i want a pretty good range coverage also... so thought you guys could help me pick the better one of the two...


Thank you all in advance.

Welcome aboard.

I have two Bosch 1617's, A DeWalt 611pk Compact Combo and a 3 1/4 horsepower Triton mounted in a table. They all work well for me.

Don't feel bad. At least two people each week join and ask questions without ever looking to see what is being posted.

Note: I do have the Asus model wireless router and it works with the Comcast modem.

Hello GfS and welcome to our woodworking forum. We indeed do have many router masterminds, some of them are just as knowledgeable about wireless routers so you might get your question answered anyway.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

WI-FI wise I have D-Link...
for the woodworking routers Bosch, Ingersoll Rand, Grumman, Makita and PC,

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Sorry to inform you but this is a "woodworking" router forum, not WiFi.
