Questions & Answers
- QuestionCan this be used with DSL? (6 Answers)Answers
Yes, because this router doesn't care how you get your internet. DSL comes into your home and then goes through a DSL modem, which either your DSL company provides or you buy yourself. This router comes into the chain AFTER that modem, and converts the Internet in your house to Wi-Fi signals (and also allows you to plug in four devices at a time via Ethernet, instead of just one). You could have cable, Fiber, DSL, whatever; a router doesn't care.

- QuestionWill this allow someone 500 ft away to pick up internet or does anyone know how far of a reach internet can be recieved outside the home is? (3 Answers)Answers
It depends upon the router. Some have very powerful antennas that can push the signal further than other makes and models of routers. Also, the other thing to consider is this, the 2.4Mhz band will travel further than the 5.0Ghz band because it is a lower frequency. So, yeah, the 2.4Mhz band of this router will travel further outside of your home(500ft maybe). The 5Ghz band won't travel as far.
- Questionwhat is the optimum up load and down load speed for a wireless router? (2 Answers)Answers
From the research I've done, upload speeds are generally considerably lower than your download speeds. I can give you real world numbers from my own experience with the AC1900. I maintain steady 50+ Mbps download and between 12 and 18 Mbps upload anywhere in my 2400 square foot multi floor home along with the Dead Spot Terminator plugged in on the upper floor. I have found these speeds unmatched by any previous product I've personally used. I hope this helps.

- QuestionHow many devices can I have on this router at one time? (4 Answers)Answers
I don't know the maximum number of connections, but I have had up to 16 devices connected at one time, ranging from iphones to laptops to smart TVs to printers and never had any problem with the connection on any of them. I generally have 10-12 connected devices regularly and again, have never had an issue with bandwidth to any of the devices.
