My rant.

Im on nightgear nighthawk router (heard its powderful router so yup)
Raptor gaming plan.

Was using 2.4ghz and no doubt everyth was working well able to surf and also use phone no problem esp in my room. Able to play ps4 and connect to PSN with ease. Using the small square modem then they send their technician and everything went down horrendously.

With 5ghz also i cant connect with my own wifi in my room.

This sounds like an issue with your wireless set up. Don't know why are you blaming the ISP.

Wireless can be due to surrounding. You didnít change anything but your surrounding like neighbours can be adding new router and on the same wifi channel as you and affected your performance.

Ah the old gaming router question.

It’s a gimmick. A router is a router. Being designed “for gaming” means nothing. Pfsense running on a first gen I3 has way more horsepower than any “gaming router”.

Take your cash and get a decent wired router and a separate access point and you will have spent less money and gotten a better product.

Obligatory mention of ubiquiti USG and Unifi UAP-AC-Lite or LR or Pro.

Also, don’t game over WiFi.

Oh and throw out the powerline adapters. You could buy a 10000 dollar router and your connection would still suck.

And, don’t bother buying more cat6a. If you aren’t doing 10g, you don’t need it (and even then, Cat5e can do 10g in short use situations). Cat5e works just fine. Don’t buy into the hype. The wires work or they don’t. Buying cat6a doesn’t make your experience better. It just makes your wallet needlessly lighter.

This is an excellent write-up.

The day may come where wireless is just as good or even trumps wired. But not today.

And you blames the ISP when your devices lose wifi connection with your nighthawk router?
