ASUS will use routers you already own for a mesh WiFi setup | Engadget
Nice. Are these routers available locally?
I have multiple routers at home (one main, the rest in bridge mode) with the same SSID but sometimes I notice there's a lag when my mobile devices switch from one AP to the next. All routers use a different radio channel (e.g. Router 1 is 149, Router 2 144, Router 3 140), so would it be better if they all operate under the same channel? I've always differentiated them to minimise interference but I always based that upon what I read on setting up your OWN router to avoid interference with OTHER people's routers.
dont use 1 channel for the three wireless routers, since you will be creating your own interference definitely not good.
wireless switching is highly dependent on the client hardware, some smartphone do it better than others.
unless you're into serious networking stuff, you don't really need so many features. I'm happy with my TPlink Archer C7. It has good range and stable connection.
Here's an update on my PLUME experience.
I was hesitant of choosing Plume because the experience is Cloud-based (Mesh was already uncharted territory for me and having a company process your data off-device sounds scary).
It turns out, it's one of the best router experience I had so far.
A. AUTO UPDATE is Killing it! It gained features I was not sure was even possible:
HomePass: Assign three different passwords for different use-cases. One wifi name.
HOME - Unfettered access and communication of ALL your devices (AirPlay, Casting and File Transfers).
Guests - Select which devices guests have access to example: only AppleTV, SONOS and Chromecast. Devices who entered this password will not be able to talk to non-approved devices (NAS, CCTVs etc). Great for parties.
Internet-only - Best for strangers, customers who you'll want to enjoy free wifi without sacrificing network integrity and security.
B. Data monitoring has been improved with per-device-usage as well as built-in speed tests.
C. You can pause data usage of each device temporarily or indefinitely
I'll be investing in more pods to cover our backyard as well. Hopefully the company keeps going strong. Judging by their recent partnership with BELL Canada, I’m confident that they’ll stick around for a while longer.
Here’s a video explainer for HomePass:

Hi guys given that the airport extreme and time capsule are a few years old already, is it still worth buying today? Will i miss out on current technologies or its still very capable? Plan to use it on globe’s fiber connection, thanks in advance
Considering Apple has basically discontinued their line of routers, I'd highly suggest you look at something else.
yup... in my case, bought a Google Wifi to replace the Airport Extreme.
There are cheaper alternatives, but Google Wifi is so easy to set-up/manage
^did u buy it locally bro? Thanks
^bought it from Lazada...
Google Wifi is only available here through Starhub (pack of 3, I'm based in SG), I only needed 1 (2 bedroom flat)
