Should I get the Apple AirPort Extreme A1521 (M350)

Hi, I want to get the AirPort Extreme A1521 because the hub 3 is terrible, and because it has great reviews, I get speeds of 200mbps download and 25mbps upload but it doesn’t reach my entire house and because it’s unreliable.

 

I am also thinking of buying the TP Link c9 ac1900. But I don’t know which one, I don’t want one that’s over £100, just one that’s below.

Personally I wouldn't recommend it as the product is now quite old 6 years and has no support life left.

Would be better looking at newer routers with better standards.

If I've helped please let me know 🙂 Matt

Mr JP is correct - I have the latest Airport Extreme and even that is no match for the newer equipment from other suppliers - when it reaches its maker it wont be replaced by Apple gear as its no longer being produced or supported.

I will get a proper Mesh system - tri-band and WiFi6
