NFT: Help please RE: wireless routers

Jerz44 : 7/7/2017 6:12 pm
hey all,

I just moved to a larger home that's quite old and my current wireless router seems to be creating a lot of deadspots throughout the house.

I was looking at two options on amazon. One is the NetGear nighthawk. It has the "best" range when comparing to other items.

The other thing I was looking at was the Google wifi system which has several different pods that you can place all over the house to create a 'mesh Wifi' system. I'd never heard of it, but reading about it it makes sense.

Not sure if either are overkill, but wondering if anyone has any recs.
NetGear Nighthawk - ( New Window )
I just went through this and went with

The nighthawk AC1900. The range is incredible and no dead spots.
The Apple Airport Extreme

also looks pretty similar to the Google Wifi.

Can someone explain in layman terms what the 802.11 ac networking is?
