Dumb AP around 50/60Eur

How are so many people claims that 5ghz isn't working?

because they are talking about mt76

Does 5ghz works for you?

Yes, maximum throughput to my ISP 200 down (/ 100+ up ; because of slow firewall checking outgoing traffic) . Haven't bothered to test network internal throughput but can do that once if you would need that.

I was asking about the 5ghz band because re650 use the same chipsets of dir-882

I see no problems in use, throughput is good, and roaming works well if there is a better AP close by... Using MediaTek MT7615E 802.11nac for 5GHz.

It looks like the ones selling now are V2 which is not supported. @nicefile do you know anything about this?

What about the Asus RT-AX53U? Didn't found any issue on the forum.

I think that one has a MT9715 DBDC 802.11ax radio, I have a PoE AP with the same radio (EAP615-Wall) and happy with it.

It looks they use the same chips https://openwrt.org/toh/asus/rt-ax53u vs https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/eap615-wall thank you for your input :slight_smile:

I'll buy one of this until the end of the day https://www.amazon.es/-/pt/dp/B099X58J8D vs https://www.amazon.es/-/pt/dp/B07QYGCGS7 the only downside of the ASUS is that is not sold by Amazon what makes it harder to return If need to.

Keep in mind the 8300 is a tri-band device, max AC speed is 867.

Thank you all. Bought the Asus RT-AX53U. As soon as they arrived I keep you update :slight_smile:

congrats! Got inspired by your quest and got a second RE650 (at 20 eur it was a steal). Now just need to upgrade my ISP plan :wink:

Couldn't find any for less than 90€ from Spain or Portugal. Where did you get yours?

last unit, local shop in NL :four_leaf_clover:
