stumps for Trump
- Jul 10, 2004
Two story home with a full basement, 8 people using the Internet heavily, 50Mbps cable internet, looking for ways to minimize the bitching when someone's streaming videos buffer or the router/modem just says "fuck this" and shuts down.thoughts on mu-mimo? is it worth it?
I had never heard of mu-mimo until I posted the above question about it a couple of months ago, so I don't know if it will really be a salvation or not but it seems, in theory, to be exactly what we need. My current set-up is a Motorola Arris Surfboard SB6141 modem and Linksys WRT-1900AC router. For the past several months, it has worked pretty well only needing to be reset occasionally (unplug for a minute, plug back in). I added a plug-in extender upstairs which seems to help a little as well as the signal up there isn't nearly as strong as downstairs, but that could simply be coincidental. My daughter returns from 6 months of Army training in less than two weeks and my parents move back into the basement apartment at the same time for 2-3 months. If the current setup would go out as infrequently with that full load as it currently does, it wouldn't be too big a deal. The problem is, I highly doubt it will do as well with the three extra people and the kids now home from school for the summer.
Will mu-mimo solve all my problems?
Can/Should I purchase one of these routers and move my Linksys WRT-1900AC to the basement as a repeater/extender/whatever?
Thanks in advance
