      Answer

      First, this is a very powerful router that has thee bands. We don't have a basement, but our router sits way over on the west wall of the house. It's 3300 sq ft. And we get good strong powerful signal in almost every nook upstairs and down. Highly recommend, especially if you can center in the first floor of your house. If not, due data feed into house/cable locations I still think it will work for most of your house. Best of luck and BB does have a ten day return....

      Answer

      Asus rt-ac5300 is what I use. The router is the About 65-70 feet away from my wifi devices outside. When using a iOS device, I have 2 out of 3 bars at that distance. That is going through 3 walls.

  • Question
    Is this router compatible to work with my Arris TM822A modem? Also my cable internet allows for speeds of 60Mpps...with that would this router make a difference in helping with speed etc?   (3 Answers)

      Answer

      ANY router is compatible with a standalone cable modem, or telephone/internet modem in your case. If you are subscribed to that speedclass, then this router is extreme overkill. I would look at some of the less pricey options. Unless range is an issue or if you are a gamer. You can spend half that much and get a great router to suit your needs! Happy hunting.

      Does this router handle 350 to 400 mps? And what is the range?   (3 Answers)

        Answer

        Not sure about the 350 -400 mps question it's rated a 5300 throughput . We have a 3000 sq foot home and it works well all over our house. It says it works at about 300 ft but because of walls and etc I think 200 ft is closer for me. Hope this helps. JRF

        Answer

        There is no feature that I know of that can do that on this device you can limit the bandwidth per device (Mbps) and you can monitor usage via the computer or from a app on your smartphone you can also make changes from both as well.

        I have multiple devices using this wifi router including iPhones as long as your apple device uses the 802.11 type wifi it should work... from the asus website.... Cross-Platform Compatibility Network speed impacts every device you game with on every platform you game on.

Hope this helps
