News - D-Link EXO AC1900 Wi-Fi router now shipping

Not everyone wants, or needs, a monster Wi-Fi router that costs $200-300 so it's great to see that D-Link is bringing out devices like the EXO, that with AC1900 speeds should be plenty in many scenerios and still ahve that angry insect look (that I like) going on.

News - Linksys EA7500 reviewed at SmallNetBuilder

I think this is the only MU-MIMO AC1900 router I've seen so far. It's certainly a unique product there, and at $200 it is consistent with other AC1900 802.11AC routers. So it might be worth having a look at the Linksys EA7500.

News - TP-LINK Touch P5 AC1900 Wi-Fi Gigabit Router Reviewed @ Mad Shrimps

I'm not completely sold on the idea of a touchscreen router. Mostly because of its impact on BOM. While it can be easier to do the first-run, most of the time after first-run users simply never interact with the device again - besides rebooting it when the cable company is looking for someone else to blame after their network goes down. Hah, who am I kidding - that never happens Wink.

If you do see the value, and have been eyeying TP-LINK's Touch P5, then head on over and have a look at this review.

NETGEAR Launches AC1900 C7000 Nighthawk 802.11AC Wireless Cable Modem Router

It seemed absurd to pay a monthly cable modem rental fee when we lived in the US, so I always had my own sitting in between the wall and my router. This was convenient, but if you’re limited for space and want fast 802.11AC NETGEAR just launched a combination 24x8 (fastest DOCSIS channel bonding solution available) wireless router cable modem called the C7000. My first inclination when I heard about the C7000 was that it was a R7000 internally joined with a cable modem that happened to be packaged in a single chassis – this is not the case however as it uses a different SoC to handle all of the functionality, sharing only the same AC1900 Wi-Fi radios as the R7000 which should lead to lower power consumption than the other approach (or two discrete devices), and at $280 certainly lowers the cost compared to cable modem + dedicated similar spec’d Wi-Fi router. As far as I can tell the only downside to this approach is that the firmware upgrade process is managed by the MSO (currently only Comcast is supported, but others will be soon), which is a mixed bag. On one hand you don’t have to keep it up-to-date, on the other hand you can’t swap it for OpenWRT (for e.g.)
