Been Looking for this or the R7000 for a few months, this is the lowest price its been according to the 3Camels. I had the Linksys Killer one posted here last week on order since then but jumped to this today as that doesn't have a date for returning to stock.
This can be flashed with DD-WRT for additional features.

Really not worth it. Asus Ac68u still to this day is the best router out there.

They all work roughly in the same way, depends on a users preference, be it Asus or Netgear.

For those that already have the R7000, If your tech savvy then you can flash Asuswrt-Merlin firmware and it will do the same.

Netgears are terrible, the software is outdated and extremely buggy and they expect you to pay a yearly subscription just to get support! Asus has much better software and don't ask you to pay for product support that should be free.

Not really, big difference in the way they optimise there signals and general usage, support.
I'm after a new router for gaming any recommendations for a decent gaming router to reduce ping that's not to expensive ?

Anyone here can recommend a router based on their preference, sometimes your current router is sufficient, but there will be factors that will come into play that will affect your connection when gaming such as a few of the following below;

1. What device are you using to game.
2. Is it connected wirelessly or wired (physical).
3. How many devices potentially connect to your router at one time.
4. Is your your home an old or a new build.


Those are just a few points, but there are many more.
I'm wired and when I game I try and make sure all the household items are switched off and I only have one that my internet provider sent out I did have a netgear one but it was a few years old and not that good I get a ping of around 25-40 that's on fortnite but would love to get it under 20
I have the R7000 for about 2 years after it was recommended by a few gaming podcasts, I have never had a problem with it. This newer version will be just as good.

You need to focus on the actual internet connection first - if your connection is interleaved then changing your router isn't going to make much difference. Have a look at your DSL stats and see whether you are on FastPath or Interleaved. If you are on interleaved then changing to a decent modem such as the Draytek Vigor 130 may improve your line connection and reduce your ping.

That may be the case, it's somewhat subjective, but it's the best price available for this at the moment which is what is meant to quantify a hot deal here

Question to you all that know your stuff. We have just recently upgraded to max virgin fibre optic. The coverage is pants! In a standard 3 bed house cant get a decent signal in the bathroom. Would it be best to get a new modem or a extender and if so which one? This one? Thanks in advance

Get a mesh system like Google WiFi. No guarantees any singular router will be any better than what u got unless u know how to delve deeper. Mesh will do all the grunt work for you and setup is super easy (especially on Google WiFi).
I bought the BT mesh network and also this. Can wholeheartedly say that the mesh network option is no good unless you buy a number of the expensive units. This gave me the coverage I needed for a lesser price tag. Try this first IMO
Got this the other week from Amazon Warehouse (Like New) for roughly the same price. It replaced a 4 year old TP-Link Archer C5 which was struggling with the increased amounts of gadgets hammering it at any given time.

Great piece of kit with all the features you'd want in a modern router.
