Ps3 reboots when updating netflix
More specifically, I’ve lived and breathed networking and Wi-Fi for the last couple of years writing for Ars Technica and Wirecutter.
As a consultant, I deployed and maintained models of nearly every brand of network gear under real-world conditions; as a technical writer I obsessively test them, and listen to readers’ concerns to make sure I’m testing the right things.
A typical home network in 2017 doesn’t look like it did in 2012.
Without even getting into the explosion of smart-home devices (everything from smart light bulbs to doorbells to washing machines now expects a decent Wi-Fi connection), most homes these days have two or more personal Wi-Fi devices (e.g., phone, laptop, tablet) per person, as well as smart TVs or streaming media boxes like Roku or Amazon Fire TV.
Add in the simple setup and powerful band steering, and it’s the best router for most people.
The Asus RT-AC3200 offers excellent, reliable performance on all three bands, at both short and long (extremely long, in the case of the 5 GHz radios) ranges.
What you don’t want to do is blindly buy either the cheapest or the most expensive router you can find.
Band steering is essential for mesh networks, which have multiple access points and multiple bands to deal with, but it’s important even in stand-alone routers, because if you aren’t using all the radios in your router, you aren’t getting all the performance you paid for.
If you’re happy with your Wi-Fi, you don’t need a new router—it’s as simple as that.
