Currently using a tp link and the speed is very bad.

What speed do you need? What is very bad? What tplink? So vague comment man, did you expect any help from that?

You need as much CPU power as you can afford. In order of most expensive to least. R9000, wrt3200acm, r7800, ea8500, r7500v2.

R7000, R6400 in case you don't need more than 30mbps through VPN.

If you are going to think about the r7000 and r6400 then the rt-ac68u, rt-ac56u and the r6300v2 are equivalent.
Then there is the wrt1900ac series the wrt1200ac series. We can't list every router lol.

Hi everyone !

I need some advice for a combo router (2 to be precise)

I will have a gigabit connection on december. I already have a R7000 and, I read he cannot effort this speed ! I will use a VPN too.

I also need a second router for Wifi Bridge ! I have 2 PC on a room and I can't use a cable. The best option for me is Wifi bridge and use it as a switch. So I need a router which I can handle 1 Gbit on Wifi.

My question : Can I keep my R7000 for Wifi Bridge and put a more powerfull router to handle the rest (VPN, Guest network etc.) or I need to change it for another piece ?

R7800 is a good choice for that ? Only one or 2 will be better for my configuration ?

Escuse my english, I hope you will understand Smile

Thank you in advance !
