Currently choosing between Two routers with a price difference of around 15 Kd, from 49.950 KD to 60 KD. The major technical differences are that the EA6500 comes with a new wireless technology the 802.11AC (yeah AC) its new to me too, apparently it will be cable of higher data rates and better range.
Taking all of that into consideration, you still have to know that it will take a couple of years for electronics manufacturers to implement the 802.11AC networks in their devices, therefore it might be an added benefit that i’d never use unless i purchase additional WiFi dongles. I’ll be digging in some more, my only reason for upgrading is that i feel my Belkin router isn’t performing up to my desired standards and I think a better router would give me better online performance, would be great if you can try before you buy hehe..
Here’s a nice comparison chart I got from Amazon.com, which shows exactly which come with which features.
Anyone tried any of these models?
