    This is a very good router, it extended my wifi strength substantially. However, it’s not ‘typically’ $299, that’s the MSRP, which no one should ever pay. I paid $225 in April 2017 and I don’t regret it. Plug the link into Camel-camel-camel and you’ll see the price variation. I would say the ‘typical’ price is more like $225-$250. Still a good deal, just not truly $100 off.

    Nice HW but, my AC card in my laptop only goes to 866Mbps, my phone has 5Ghz, and Nest only does 2.4 along with the printer. So, if you look at individual devices you’re not going to get more than 1Gbps out of a device unless you’re buying aftermarket WIFI cards for a Desktop device. The benefit from this type of gear comes from having 4-5 people or more in the house with a variety of devices streaming at the same time. It’s kind of like the marketing on the new Docsis 3.1 cable modems. Sure 3.1 will do up to 5Gbps but, your ethernet port only does 1Gbps because they’re not making home user 10Gbps devices in the same price range. So, you have Netgear with 1 Gbps port, Arris has one with 2 ports, and Motorola/Zoom thought ahead and put 4 ports on the back of the modem for when the market catches up and can bundle them together for higher throughput.

    For the optimal signal strength on your devices you should download “wifi analyzer” to your phone and measure the signal and see how much overlap you have with other AP’s nearby. If you’re sharing the same channel with 2-4 different AP’s your speeds and signal will suffer. If you want the best signal and speeds pick an “off channel” to improve your results. 2.4Ghz has 11 channels and by default gear ships with them scanning and automatically picking channel 1 / 5 / 11 and scanning perpetually to find the least interference. 5Ghz has about double the channels and usually get picked in pairs 2-digit&3-digit pairings. Find the ones that get you the lowest -xx number aka higher signal strength and life is good. It’s easy with a phone showing the signal through the app and making changes through a laptop to see the differences.
