Just wondering what experiences people have with current WAPs? I like to get cable modems and use DD-WRT, recently I used a TP-Link TL-WR2543ND which after a bit of messing around with its setup seemed good, I am going back tomorrow so will see how it is doing after a few weeks running.
I am trying to pick a WAP to replace a Netgear WN802T which is dropping signal. The WAP will be in the loft of a large house so needs to have decent penetration and coverage which I know is a bit of a contradiction. I'm not sure if there is any point in me getting a simultaneous dual band AP or not.
So far I am thinking:
Draytek Vigor AP-700
Draytek Vigor AP-900 (simultaneous dual band but expensive)
Asus RT-AC66U (simultanous dual band, Wireless-AC but expensive)
I'm not really a fan of internal aerials, I always think the gain must be lower, is there any science behind this or is there no difference?
