The Rivals Pining for the Throne
Of course, March Madness wouldn’t be a competition if there weren’t any contenders for the champion’s throne. So, shall we meet our final four favorites in 2016….
This season, the Linksys WRT3200ACM DD-WRT has proved to be Top Dog. Carrying a 1.8 GHz Marvell processor, the WRT3200 is sure to satisfy any gamer or streamer playing or watching content through a VPN. Using the classic style of the first DD-WRT router, the WRT54G, the WRT3200ACM is the rare remake that is lightyears ahead of the original. It’s like The Thing or Scarface of routers.
Speaking of reboots and remakes, the Netgear Nighthawk X4 R7800 is the latest edition to the Nighthawk line. And what does this Nighthawk have that sets it above the R7000 and R8000?
Up the processing power 700 MHz, for starters. Add MU-MIMO Support with QuadStream X4 Wireless Architecture- meaning you are going to get some top of the line WiFi with this bad boy. Can the the Nighthawk X4 beat out the WRT3200ACM for the Top Spot? It will be a close call.
While DD-WRT is a more popular firmware, Tomato can occasionally pop out of nowhere and surprise us all. Tomato is known to have a more user-friendly interface than DD-WRT.
The Asus RT-AC3200 Tomato is an underrated beast and top notch router of the firmware. The Asus AC3200 uses six very powerful external antennas offering great range. Will range and user-friendliness outshine monster processors? Tune in to find out.
And as always, every competition needs a rags to riches story. The underdog who rises to the top. The Asus RT-N66U may be lacking the wireless ac standard of its rivals, but it makes up for it with a solid performance and the most affordable cost of any router in this tournament.
