請教買新ROUTER 的建議

本帖最後由 danhaywoodchan 於 2015-10-27 19:28 編輯

由於小弟屋企的WiFi 有問題, 打算買新ROUTER 了, 所以想問問各位大大的意見
(先前WiFi 問題的帖子 http://www.hkepc.com/forum/viewt ... 8366&highlight=)

屋企寬頻: iCable 50mb (十一月到期, 之後應該會轉BB xxx mb了, )
屋企有既Devices:
1. PC with AC Wireless Card (Intel 8260, Max Speed: 867 mb)
2. PC with N Wireless USB Adapter (Max Speed: 150 mb)
3. iPhone 6
4. iPhone 5s x 2
5. 紅米 x 2
6. iPad Mini 1
7. Sony 電視 (要Wired 駁LAN)
8. Notebook with Dual Band N (I seldom use it)

我想買行AC 既ROUTER, 以大牌子及耐用為主 (因為會24小時長開), 如果覆蓋愈大當然愈好啦
如果唔洗SET 太多野就用到就更好啦, 因為小弟唔太識advanced settings lol
睇過 ASUS RT-AC55UHP, Linksys EA6200
好似ASUS 果隻OKAY, Linksys 個隻好似伏伏地咁??
Budget 600 - 800, 各位大大有冇咩建議 or 推介?

謝謝先~~

你要買牌子又要耐用,咁都係 asus 3年保、Netgear 2年保、平價、高性價比 tp link 18個月保,當然有唔少人信唔過大陸牌子 tp link 穩定耐用

以下全部 router 都係AC,超過你 budget,硬件規格強勁

ASUS RT-AC68U,中央田減價 $99X,極推薦,自己睇 hkepc forum

netgaear R7000,$1300,Broadcom chipsets,1Ghz x 2,256MB/128MB ram/rom
https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_R7000

TP-LINK Archer C8,$893,Broadcom chipsets 800MHz x 2,,3x3天線,usb3.0,128MB/16MB ram/rom

Netgear R6300 v2,水貨 $8XX,Broadcom chipsets,800MHz x 2,256MB/128MB ram/rom,usb3.0


以下全部 router 唔超過你 budget

$700 Tenda W1800R,tenda firmware都係麻麻,但保養好似係500日一換一,tomato shibby 支援型號之一,Broadcom chipsets,單核,性價比低

TP-LINK Archer C7 V2, $730 ,Atheros 720MHz,3x3天線,128MB ram,16MB rom,性價唔高,tomato 不支援

ASUS RT-N66U,中央田減價 $7XX,好過Tenda、TP-LINK上面兩個型號,但無AC,wifi一定無咁快,但wire,穩定,cpu、ram、3rd firmware遠勝Tenda、TP-LINK上面兩個型號,Broadcom chipsets 600MHz x 2,,3x2天線,AC制式係行 5Hhz,穿牆能力唔高,只係近距離快,wifi 我自己覺得唔洗單個device 行過太過高速,依家情況黎睇,你o既應用情況係 heavy load,router cpu 運算都要有返咁上下先應負到。

Netgear R6250,$810,AdvancedTomato支援,Broadcom BCM4708A0 (800 MHz, 2 cores),2x2天線, 256 MB/128rom,強勁運算硬件規格,不是三天線
https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_R6250


依你budget又要AC,Netgear R6250,其實你係咪全部 device 會一齊連線?

R7000 is $1080 only at the corner shop...... I bought one today.....can't wait.....

Flashed Asus-Merlin 378.56 and has been using it since this afternoon. CPU temperature 71 degree Celsius only!

I don't have experiences with other firmware....in fact, today is my first time to flash 3rd party router firmware.....
Did a bit research on the internet and gathered some opinion from chings here.......seems that Asus-Merlin is said to have higher throughput than other firmware, albeit not the most versatile in terms of function. But it got what I need......PPTP VPN.

香港討論嘅大牌子不外乎ASUS,Linksys,Netgear.TP-link每次講出黎始終有人覺得個牌子唔掂,今次就唔提佢...

基本上性能表現都係睇佢部router配咩spec比你,一分錢一分貨.

比得$800就不如比多少少一步到位,ASUS RT-AC68U依家減價$99X.

AC1900講緊呢款同R7000最掂,3rd party support都係最多.

Netgear R6250 $800雖然唔超budget但2.4GHz相比R6300v2縮水用咗BCM43217,個性能會伏啲都唔奇.而R6300v2內置天線實測coverage唔夠R7000同AC68U大.

ASUS AC66U $92X仲用緊BCM4706 MIPS CPU,性能冇得同AC68U粒Dual Core BCM4708比...C/P值完全唔係一個grade.

Linksys EA6900明明spec差唔多但表現都係差過R7000同AC68U,對比呢兩款冇平到仲要得個一年保,CFE有32K NVRAM issue刷3rd party firmware又麻煩啲.


如果話AC68U會有對手就只可能係R7000(CPU用更好嘅BCM4709)跟住減價到<$1000嗰陣,不過依家$108X都可以諗諗嘅

R7000 CPU 1GHz, AC68U CPU 800MHz only!

I bought it during lunch time and flashed Merlin immediately after I hook up and turn on the router.....
I wouldn't worry about the performance of stock firmware as there weren't much complain on the internet (except for R7500, with the problematic Quantenna chip). I've been using WNDR3700 for 5 years and didn't had any problem (except accidental drop-off persisted for a month last year, which I suspected was related to ISP instead of the router itself.) In general, the firmware provided by Netgear is stable for home use IMO. However, it lacks the functionality of VPN (only has openvpn, which is not very useful IMO).

I don't have IT background but like to build my own computer and setup everything myself......I don't think Asus-Merlin is difficult to use. A lot of resources can be found on the internet in case you encounter any problem related to 3rd party firmware.
