  • Shary Bhallu TC Shary Bhallu TC:
    isnt there a website that exposes the amount of fake reviews a product on amazon has
    Link
  • Shary Bhallu TC Shary Bhallu TC:
    cuz I've never seen that for an unknown company lol
    Link
  • Shary Bhallu TC Shary Bhallu TC:
    maybe paid reviews?
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    unless they are all from employees of the company, that's a pretty good ratio

    But with some routers, you can change the firmware to that of DD-WRT or Tomato. And then you unlock a buttload of more features like 1.5x signal power and whatnot.

    I've used a router as an extender (it is possible in the settings), but only with 2.4 GHz, not at 5 GHz. So can't help you there.

    just did a google speed test and i'm getting 242~ mb/s in my office room on the upper level, and the full ~400 mb/s when using the same laptop in the living area
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    * the reason they had to move the router was to drill a hole in the wall and run an ethernet cable from the outdoor box to the router, and the best way to do it without drilling holes and running cables to the upstairs office room was to move the router downstairs
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    which is still hell of a lot more than i got before, but not the max.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    now the living area etc all get full speed over wifi, but the office room which is on a different level, it is getting max ~180/200 mb/s
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    to get my new speed, they had to move the router to a whole different location, near where the outdoor box facing wall is, which has brought it far away from my home office room
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    so apparently, and i don't know if this was BS or not, but fios guy said that my previous connection was running over coax to the router, which limits max speed to 100 mb/s

    Major Aly said:
    Are there any wifi extenders that support 5GHz band? Cuz with 400Mb connection you're going to need one
