The 150Mbps Wi-Fi N Household Router provides the greatest degree of safety measures using 6x the particular speed as well as 3x the particular protection of wifi g products. Quickly deploy the particular router as well as work with it using TRENDnet wifi N adapters to take delivery of the total advantages of wifi N speed as well as protection.
Well instead of all the speeds they give us they need to work on coverage itself! if my Advanced Ac router can't go upstairs as it should be in 1300 squar foot home, then they better look for another job!
This product wud simply be best only for local connectivity mostly than to boost anyone's internet connetion.Lol.
This will help in streaming even a 4k content seamlessly over DLNA local wifi connection..cause the 5ghz can handle upto full hd easily but i guess not the 4k...
Beware though this product comes with a condition means the devices which u will be connecting to it sud support this wifi 802.11 ad tech otherwise this router wud not going to be much of a use.
means it will only work in dual band mode and not in tri band mode if u dont have a tri-band supporting device.
The new smartphone chipsets like sd820,the new exynos etc are already encorporating this tech in there upcoming chipsets.
Hopefully all the smart tv companis wud adopt this tech fast cause i guess right now all the smart tv's available in the market support max 5ghz wifi band .
I also feel that this tech sud also support a dedicated screen beaming/mirroring app for all mobile platfroms..With this tech the screen mirroring wud be lag free and wud have realtime user input which wud be great for local mobile gaming on a big screen and ppl wont have to also buy those screencast dongles like chromecast or miracast & it will also eliminate buying the mhl3.0 or slimport docks and cables.
Lets see what technology brings ahead.
Internet will be available without Wifi and data sim or soon sim card and GSM calling services will be out of line.... Get a internet subscription and do what whatever you want.... Call.. Text.. Watch TV.. Navigate... Get Your devices and just do it
This is an OEM pushing forward, getting its name out there to those who do not know TP-Link's brand yet. I, personally, think a good 802.11n router is good enough, as my internet connection is 200Mbps and I am not really using it to the fullest, due to my Wifi card limits at 100Mbps real speed (150Mbps is the announced), which is 12,5MB/s, that is pretty good. The majority of people has 30Mbps of Fiber or 10Mbps of xDSL, on the cheapest ISP router that gives a ping of 30-500ms and the Wifi signal is as bad as it can be. Everyone should upgrade their ISP's router, but to a good 802.11n router, with a steady signal and a good ping. I have a TP-Link Archer D5, Xiaomi's Mi Router (with 1TB NAS) and the Mi Router mini. And I have a pretty good Wifi signal at all the places at my house.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2016Walls shouldn't affect the speed unless you happen to have a big house and the signal strength... moreI had that linksys xD epic fail to be honest.
And as I said there is lots of stuff between you and internet, so it's not only about walls. When I bought repeater for my router to get "any" Internet in my garage I played a bit with placement of router and setting in it. When it raining I get drop of speed and stability reaching even 2mbps. When I put tv between router and my pc(also two thin walls stand there) I also get slower speed...
Even if most of us understand how it work, When I get results like that I thing it's still some weird magic and no one actually get how it work. XD
It's just too much interference and variables to say something for sure. Even internet test in the same day with the same data and enviroment still can give you different results like this tv that technically should not give such diference... But it give... Magic ;)
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2016Just something to think about - the highest home internet speed offered in Bulgaria is 200Mbps... moreNot only Internet data goes through a router. A household typically has many interconnected devices.
Overkill, 10 MB/s would be enough for me personally, since my ISP gives only 10-11MB/s max for my current plan.
Bob the builder, 06 Jan 2016Meanwhile I'm still rocking my good old 56kbps dial up connection! and thats... a lie.
ET - the real one, 06 Jan 2016Never said how worth it is, and I know how short the 5GHz band is, installed a dual band route... moreJust a small addition to the last part of your post - a 5GHz network is actually far more useful to avoid saturation rather than speed increases. In my apartment building, my PC picks up 27 WiFi connections (literally) so using 2.4GHz is highly unreliable, and since most people don't even know what 5GHz is (let alone spend a lot of cash on a router with one), having that will solve a LOT of problems.

Just gave a use scenario for it, the 1.2 Gb/s extra band would be usually used as a transmission overhead and error correction, but think about PCIe SSDs: they can actually reach higher than SATA 3 speeds easily, some go well on the 1 GB/s speeds so these 8Gb/s would saturate even this router. Consider a laptop with that kind of SSD transferring to another one, both in same room, this would be useful for a user that does have this situation to handle. I'm not one of those, but some people do have the usage scenarios for this gear (obviously most just go by the "It's expensive, must be good" but some may actually benefit from it).
For pure Internet transmission may as well stick with the trusty 2.4 GHz N band if you're not some super epic fiber client.

Put a wall between them and you might as well stick with 5GHz...which also happens to be pretty short range...so you'll endup using 2.4Ghz anyway.
Also, 7.2Gbps is useless as the fastest SATA3 drive is still 6Gbps, so unless both devices are transferring from one SSD to another, the extra 1.2Gbps is useless (which will be the case of the vast majority of the home users for a long time).
You might say "I'll buy this as future proofing"...well, let me give you this thought - think about how long it will take your ISP to break the 600Mbps internet barrier for your region, and how many of your PCs happen to have a SSD in them, and then tell me - is it worth spending $500 on this thing?

Now a days everything is connected via a local wifi network
Like my lights, pc, tabs n phones
Now i can transfer files wirelessly to my phone as fast as a wired connection

Think about the ever increasing speeds of SSDs, if you want to send a file from one SSD to another, or say, a RAID array to another, via this connection you have virtually no bottleneck, you can send the file at full speed over the same network.
For internet usage itself it will obviously be overkilling the overkill, but then when the 60 GHz signal dies (and this will happen like, on the other room), the other bands take over for the rest of the coverage and probably the 300 Mb/s speed is enough for your internet signal everywhere on the house where this is installed.
Meanwhile I'm still rocking my good old 56kbps dial up connection!

Assuming your Windows wireless indicator says the connection strength is good or higher, you should be able to get all 12.5MB/s speed.
I use a Linksys E2500 (a HORRIBLE piece of s*** if I may add) on a 100mbps connection and I get full speed even in outside my apartment when I wait for the elevator (yes, I actually tested it).

This router would be nice for fibre lines, I just wish it traveled through walls, as my house isn't exactly small and my current router is fixed to the study, I have no idea how to move fibre lines lol.
