My for YEARS functioning, C7 has started giving me issues of intermittent internet dropouts
Playing Path of Exile, a game where you don't get kicked out of the game, unless you dropout for more than 5seconds or so was extremely sketchy Often dying because the game would catch up after losing connection.
I first thought it was their servers, but I plugged in an old DIR-615 and used that for a week, not even a single issue. But SQM/QoS?? was a mess, we can't watch basically any videos, let alone 4K (lol) and play at the same time.
So now I'm looking for a new router that supports OpenWRT because it's the only thing I THINK I know that supports SQM for a small budget.
I might not even need OpenWRT? I've been looking at routers for ages now, and am thinking about just getting the same Archer C7 (but newer version) to save myself the headache.. I can't help but think there's faster/better options for the same price though and would probably end up feeling scammed..
Also looking at the ASUS RT-AC58U, but I honestly don't really know anything about this stuff and the NAS I've got is running 4x 3TB HDD's in Raid 10, so bandwidth (LAN?) is also kind of a must, I guess.
I'm about ready to start pulling my hair out... wisdom tooth also recently removed and now this.. ahh!
Do I even need a new router? Can I somehow fix the "dead" Archer C7? I mean when it isn't losing the connection it works perfectly fine.. hah....
Thanks.. hope anyone can help me out..!
