LOL, A reply within 12 hours incredulous that you were not using their "crappy" default modem/router.
Then silent for 10 days+ when you point out why it is not good enough(in addition to all the reasons brought up in those posts at the start of this thread explaining why modern day Fiber purchasers don't find the default Pace acceptable.)
Yes, the Pace is crap, but so is most of what's out there. I've been testing several gigabit-capable devices, and each has a different fatal flaw. I'd be putting OpenWrt/LEDE on the winning device regardless, so my comparisons are largely on the hardware level. I don't even know what I'm going to do with the rejects.
Thinking of giving Sonic back their Pace router and buying this router ( TP-LINK AC1200) to save the monthly rental fee from Sonic. Just my wife & I use our phones and laptops and cast a movie once and awhile. Your thoughts on the router for are needs?
Has anyone tried using a mesh system (I currently own a Linksys Velop setup).
My specific issue is that I live in an older home with chicken wire in the walls, and in the past any and all modems and routers would leave dead spots everywhere in my home (single story, 1500 sq. ft). So far the mesh system has worked extremely well for my family and basic comcast internet, and I'd hate to learn that Sonic Fiber doesn't work with a mesh system =(
If you own the Velop, you could continue to use that - just connect it behind the Sonic router.
Sonic now offers a WiFi mesh solution to our members directly, as one of our equipment options. So, folks with Sonic fiber and other Fusion services can either stick with the standard single-point WiFi setup, or select a mesh solution. Some info can be found here: http://sonic.com/betterwifi
My fiber won't be coming until the end of summer but I'm wondering if I can continue to use my current router...it's a Belkin AC900 and is gigabit capable. I'm using it with Sonic Fusion right now. I've put an 802.11ac adapter on my older Mac, and we have one chromebook as well. The TV runs Roku via Plex from the Mac. Usage involves download and stream priority on the Mac with occasional use of the Roku/Chromebook. I'm comfortable with the belkin setup and don't really want to pay the extra $10 (will use the supplied router for the first year as there is no savings without it). Should I keep the Belkin to use later on?
