Comparison to previous years
Our tech setup
WiFi network setup
Our router is a
- ASUS RT-AC68U 2.4GHz/5GHz Wifi router
Running DD-WRT firmware v3.0-r30631 std (09/14/16).
The ASUS RT-AC68U is configured as the DNS server. We have a utility we've written called netfasff.
We run DD-WRT as it allows us to completely configure our router. DD-WRT compatability is something we look for when purchasing routers.
Single WAP vs Multi WAP
We have performed with a multi-router setup in the past, using the RT68U and two 2.4GHz Netgear WNR3500Lv2s (running DD-WRT firmware). The RT68U is massively louder than the N300s, so we opted to go with using just that instead and everything has been fine for ~130 clients connected over 5GHz and 2.4GHz.
