I bought this during the woot-off to replace the Linksys AC1900 I got from woot way back in May 2015. The AC1900 still works fine, but the 5ghz band has gotten slow recently. Not sure if network congestion or what. I tried tweaking things to make sure it was only allowing AC speeds on that band, but that didn't help.
Super excited to get more range and more speed with the AC5400. I love that it has 2 USB ports (one for network printer, one for network USB drive) and 8 ethernet ports vs 4 is another huge upgrade for me. I currently have a network switch that adds a few ports that I then connect to my in-home network patch panel/board/whatever. With 8 built-in ports, I'll be able to hook up the data connection in almost every room without the need for the switch. (I'll probably still find a reason to need more though!)
It should get here soon and then begins the fun of setting up all the port forwarding and such to make everything work.
Now I just need to figure out a way to keep the squirrels from chewing on the cable line outside the house! I found out that had caused some other slowness and reliability issues recently. Friggin' squirrels.
