    Default Recommendations 5ghz Router

    Anyone got a recommendation...? 2.4 and 5 ghz.

    I currently have a Netgear Nighthawk 7000 and it's a total POS. I'm over trying to get the F*&%ing thing to work properly.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Very happy with a TP-Link model I have!
    As it runs on Linux, many other firmwares for it.
    Was nothing wrong with the stock firmware at all.
    But a third party version opened up many more possibilities.

    Had it 4 years.
    Never had a single issue.
    Been on 24/7 for 4 years.

    Ill post the model when I find it.
    I was actually thinking of buying another myself

    It works perfect for my application, which is a 3G/4G Modem and Router for wired and wireless
