" ...  Wifi Stability - Very good ... Range of 5Ghz & 2.4 better than other routers ... WiFi Speed - Good. ... I was Seeking Speed, Range and Stability. ... This was a perfect choice for my Act 250 Mbps. ... In Lan I get 250 MBPS ... In WiFi 2.4 - 60 & 5 - 80 MBPS (After crossing Concrete walls and a Door)  ...  "

" ...  Now to the router. ... 1) Looks - The router really looks like a modern electronic device. ... After that, it works like a charm with no dropped connections. ... The range is quite good. ... In Mumbai, it covers a 1400 sq ft. 3 BHK apartment (single floor) and gives full speed. ... Hint - Place it in the corridor which houses all the rooms, with half of the antennas pointing towards the hall, that ways you'll cover the full house. ... Of course the 2.4 Ghz range is good, but surprisingly the 5Ghz range is better than the previous router I was suing (TP Link AC 1750). ... Moreover, I would strongly suggest to go for an AC router, as Mumbai has good access to fibre internet, and one needs an AC router to actually use it properly. ... My house has 3 mobile phones, 3 lap tops, 2 PS4s, along with guest devices connected, and this router handles it all with aplomb.  ...  "

" ...  An awesome router with impressive speed and stability. ... Although the range through concrete walls is not great for 5G band, still it manages to deliver reasonably good speed (50% to 60% of close range top speed).  ...  "
comment
" ...  Range is very good. ... I have 4 walls in between still get a good range.  ...  "

" ...  Other end needed a good gigabit router with a good enough range. ... -MU-MIMO support (very stable wireless connection) ... I personally have a CyberGhost Premium subscription & had no problem setting up an OpenVPN client in this router. ... After setup, activate and u can forget about it, as the VPN automatically reconnects after a restart. ... For the asking price of ₹4300, the ASUS RT-AC58U Wi-Fi Router offers a great deal.  ...  "
