If you need one, you need one.

Otherwise, Wifi-6E is coming (something is always coming)...

I'm guessing some may see OK deals don't belong in Hot Deals.

Downvoting because it’s a poor product. Please save your money and buy something better.

Ok, so explain what is better for the people who may not know what to look for in these types of products.

a 2x2 adapter that support 160MHz channel will get to 2 Gigabites. Why would you want more speed ?

Only responding due to owning this router. I think it is fantastic product and by far the best bang for the buck out there.

I would highly recommend it. Not sure what the guy a few posts above me is on about.

Router also lacks the ability to be a TP-Link OneMesh router and can't act as a wireless extender. It's kind of limiting, especially if you want to use this as a secondary router if you don't have the option to have a wired backbone. Great price though.

I've also heard this router model overheats for some people as well...

I am looking at this model for my main model. I am currently using Hutton from Rogers. Mainly due to smart devices in IoT well over 50+ on 2.4 GHz. Would this be a better option?

As a general rule, I’ve found routers which combine switch functions (having multiple Ethernet ports) are straight up bad. It will eventually overheat and become unreliable. (Which is why those ISP all in ones are the worst, combining router, switch, wireless ap AND modem functions in a cheap box).

It really depends on your usage, personally I've never heard of people complaining that their home wireless router overheated.

Every router I've ever used has a switch. Currently using an r7000 that has been rock solid since purchase

Haha, guess you've just had really bad luck then, and I've very curious what you think is a good consumer router since almost EVERY consumer router has a switch as part of the design.

Hes talking about the all in one devices that ISPs give out: modem/router/switch. The Shaw one was decent, the Telus one is terrible.
