Also getting the ea8100 from Starhub. Current using Portal router. Will it be an upgrade in terms of range & speed?

Hi experts, I'm currently running a tplink archer c7. Would it be advisable to switch to this ea8100 for better coverage?

No one can exactly tell you can or cannot.
It all boils down to your home design, how big is your house and did you place it in the optimal location for your router.

An AP, mesh, wifi extender are what is recommend to use if you have coverage issue and willingness to pull a few lan cables if possible to resolve your coverage issue.

e8100 provided significant improvement over my aging ac55uhp. a spot that my old 2.4ghz cant reach now has 180mbps 5ghz wifi.
cant say much for ac88 though.

u must know why ppl are selling this

but if using 1 router at home just for internet purpose ,no harm low-ball the seller
sure got 1 will sell...maybe free delivery too
Why are so many people selling this? Is it purely due to no use of the router after recontracting?, Or is there any flaws or issues for the model?
This ea8100 is cheaper than a cheap ac1200 price, I am looking to buy a recontracted ea8100 from.carousell to replace my stock singel ac1600(I guess)

This router along with other Linksys EA series router apparently won't use the user set ipv6 DNS resolver. It defaults back to the ISP own DNS. Not an issue with the newer Singtel broadband plan which seems to not have ipv6.

Also it's extremely feature lite with missing features like a openVPN server etc.

Not sure if it supports the preset Singtel vlans without it you can only use it as an access point with your current router.

Not Sure, But I believe many ppl buy asus router to replace the singtel issued router as it has ready use pre set singnet vlan settings into their firmware. I replace for my cousin singtel router with Asus RT-AC58U, their internet and IPTV work as usual and her children is never happier.

A lot ppl also selling M1 issued router RT-AC1200G+ for $30-$50 dollars. it's almost similar, just a bit lower end then RT-AC58U. but usage wise for family who just want stable internet wifi access, it's no different. I heard RT-AC1200G+ have some heat issue, but I don't experience it myself. Maybe I leaves a lot space between the table and the btm of the router. So I guess it's a bit base on luck.

On top of that, both Asus RT-AC58U and RT-AC1200G+ have access to uncommon AC 5G channel 52,56,60,64,100,104,108,112. so u can have the channel easily expend to use 80mhz all by yourself without any interference from your neighbours.

Will switch from M1 500M to Starhub 1G next month.

I'm thinking if I should change to EA8100 or continue using my current router after switch to 1G. Currently I'm using Xiaomi Mi Pro (R3P).
