    The real reason is that all advertised claims are usually lies. The world of bullshit

    You missed the 4th speed…ISP speed. My ISP said I needed a mesh system so my 5G range would be better because my speeds were 108 ⬇️ 6⬆️. I changed my channels during peak times and guess what? My 5G has better range so I do not need a mesh system AND my internet speeds are 596 ⬇️ 28⬆️.

    But if there are say 4 or 5 phones using the same router a better one would be worth the money correct?

    Screw consumer routers, use a pfsense or a sonicWALL with some Wi-Fi access points.

    What he’s saying is irrelevant. Your router is exactly how fast it says it is as long as the tech has been standardized, period. Useless video.

    Is there much difference between using a combined vdsl modem+router and going with a separate modem like the draytek vigor 130 and connecting a router?

    Is it pointless to buy a product like this in parts of the world where cabling is external (not underground) and of poor quality/maintenance, due to public companies (ir)responsible for it ? Does it help with fluctuating internet speed that results from the problem I described ?

    So I live in the country and I only get 25mbps, so if I buy a router will it help any?

    You NAILED IT! I bought the NETGEAR Night Hawk x10 and I don’t see any speed difference! Amazon still lags and buffers and router is 10ft away from the TV!
    I think that I pay for 100mb for Spectrum Internet! Also any information on how to Flash a Night Hawk to install IPVanish?
    Thank You
