Right now I have a single AR-150 with external antenna serving as my main home router. I will soon have a wired-only router (Mikrotik hEX RB750Gr3) that can provide CPU intensive tasks, such as QoS, VPN, etc. I also put in a lot of 1Gbit Ethernet throughout the house, meaning that my main computers, game consoles, TV streaming, etc is hardwired. I also have the option of placing additional APs throughout the house, at least in rooms that get a lot of wireless traffic.
So, I am looking for recommendations for APs that function just as APs, but ones with rock-solid, relatively speedy wireless performance. I am not worried about super-high-power (since I have lots of options on placing multiple, wired-backhaul APs).
Of the several GL-inet travel routers with 802.11n, is there discernible wireless performance advantages between them? (There are, I’m sure differences in CPU performance, but for my application, I don’t think CPU is a bottleneck.)
As the 2.4 GHz spectrum is crowded, I can see a 5.8GHz radio being attractive. Is GL-AR750 the only 5 GHz radio option from GL-inet at present?
The GL-B1300 is coming soon. Since I have Ethernet throughout my home, I won’t be needing its Mesh capabilities. But will its wireless performance (AC) be superior to the GL-AR750?
