Coverage u will definitely get it since u are using it to expand and cover blindspot. But for speed is really dependent on your client device and environment. If I have a powerful client, the expected speed will be higher. But if u are using a mid range, dun expect that u get the same speed as higher end client. Client device means like handphone and laptop.
Icic... thanks for the explanation. So, assuming that my client device is top notch, will the difference between using 1200G+ as main router versus using 56s as main router be huge? or negligible?

(Also assuming my fibre broadband is 1Gbps)

well i still think not so much since both capabilities are about the same. (btw top notch so far still cant really hit 1gbps )

this really depends on what client devices and isp speed u sign up. if really can reach more than 500mbps best get those better ones

I am considering m1 free asus router ac1200, ubiquiti router x or xiaomi pro to my ubiquiti ap.

Most impt is router processing followed by feature.

Likely to have 2 lan from router n at least 10 device connected at one time.

Any advice

Is the range for 1200g+ a lot better than 56s?

1200g+ has external antennas. I don't have this model but I believe your placement is important as well. My AC68 is good enough to deliver wifi to every end of my 4-room HDB flat.

Yah. But my fiber point is fixed. So limited options.


Found this article.
For 2.4g, 56u is better than 1200g
For 5g, 1200g performs better.

Of cos if anyone has used both routers, it would be great to hear your feedback too

i agree with your statement. Be it any isp, we are sharing the common backbone by Netlink trust.

After firmware update my router went from 500gbps to 150gbps. Any settings advice to get highest speed?

FTP is the box like thing on the wall, it doesn’t turn on or off.

Are you referring to ONT?

Secondly, try doing a reboot first if your ac1200g+ has an issue..

Actually this was just set up few days ago by m1 contractors. Oh yah i mean i turned off my mains and ONT for awhile. I mean it still works but when i use speedtest app, it only achieves 140-150mbps where it was 500mbps yesterday. I dont know if i might have reset anything. I wanna bring back the 500mbps on speedtes leh.

What happened today is i turned on my mains and then when the ont and modem started up my phone got a prompt to enter password on asus router web interface. So after that it prompted me to update router firmware. So after that was done, i did speedtest and found the 140mbps result.
