This has only 8MB of RAM which is just pitiful.

I don't know who but someone posted this one before about the AC15. I said that I thought the newer AC6 I had with 4 antennas was better, but after looking at wikidev and seeing the AC15 was dual core compared to single core, buying it from Newegg and trying it, I can confirm AC15 has a stronger WiFi signal than the AC6. So I am using the refurb AC15 with the .7 firmware I read works best, and it has been great thus far. I recommend the AC15. The unit I got had a moderately scuffed up front fascia, but everything else was clean. The only odd deal was 1 of the 3 antennas was facing a different direction, and the plastic cover of this antenna came undone and I had to put it back on. Other than that it is worth the price.

I got one of these last time around too, and quality was pretty good. Aside from the speed and range , I like that it has a fast USB 3.0 port and DLNA support too.

Thanks.
By the way, I'm not dissing the Tenda, but I've never bought a Tenda before, even less a refurb one. How do they hold up against tplink? The specs look very good, yet the price is so low.

I too got the Tenda AC15 a few weeks ago and the price/performance ratio is unbeatable, especially if you're intending to use it's USB 3.0 storage feature. Wifi and USB 3.0 NTFS speeds are excellent and it seems rock stable on stock.

I haven't owned a Tenda before, but my impressions of its price to performance are similar to above.
It has the same hardware as many name brands and for 1/3-1/4 of the price. Seems stable and user friendly on stock firmware. Although really advanced users may find it a bit limited and want to go with non stock firmware.

I also see that the AC15 now has Premier shipping active, still no P/U though.

Actually, I'll return it. I have an EA6500 at home and I was getting terrible 2.4ghz speeds. I turned on 5ghz today... went from 10MB/s to 35MB/s.... it's in the basement too, so I think it's decent...

Download an app called wifi analyzer. Check which channel has less traffic. You need to play around with channels to get the best performance
