Capable of maintaining multiple simultaneous Full HD streams, the router supports the latest Smart Tech devices such as IP cameras, thermostats, and smart security.

VERY fast! doesn't crash like the Netgears that i used before, tri band (you can set up two 5g networks as well as a 2.4g) In addition to that a 5g and 2.4g guest networks. and can dedicate QOS for gaming. Smart enabled (alexa etc). Set up in two ways 1st way diy and spend hours at it or simply follow the wizards (best way) and up and running in minutes. this is handling numerous pc's, laptops and mobiles plus 10 api cameras, hive, Air-conditioning and many other wifi enabled devices without slowing down including streaming from many on demand services . GET THIS and you will understand why its not a cheap heap thus only an 9 for value. Web access to the router is an ezy 2 C and understand
If the external DSL modem goes then what? Otherwise would give compatibility a 10. Has quite a large footprint but you get used to that
