    Try to check the graph here <click here for link>. More than 10K+ price range.

    The PLDT modem/router is independent to the 3rd party router. You can use whatever router you want.
  • ^Cant do the P10kish routers rn hahaha .... Yung tp link na lang muna. Thank you sir appreciate the help.
  • Gagana ba wifi 6 if the main router itself is not?


    Yes. Backward compatible both ways naman yung WiFi standard although sa experience ko, sulit din kung parehong WiFi 6 yung device at router kasi mas malakas/reliable yung signal at bandwidth throughput ng 5GHz sa amin.
  • ^Thanks. Ang upgrade AFAIK ng wifi 6 over 5 is yung distribution/bigay ng internet between devices. Kahit sabay sabay kayo gumagamit eh hindi nyo mafi-feel na lagging. Ramdam ba yung let's say for example: 2.4ghz connection kayo, isang nag you-youtube sa isang device tapos nag-e-ML ako, hindi ba magfa-fluctuate yung ping ko sa ML?

    Anong type of cable ang optimized if mag PLDT->TP Link setup ako? CAT 6? Cat 5e?

    I think baka dependent na yan sa QoS feature (Quality of Service) ng router regarding bandwidth priority and sharing across devices. Usually configurable naman yung QoS rules sa router settings. Sa experience ko kasi pag may ibang users/devices na kasabay na may downloads or video streaming habang naglalaro ako ng online games, pag saturated na yung download and upload bandwith, doon talaga nagkakaroon ng lag. As for pings, affected din pero in most cases, depende sa WAN more than the local WiFi network.

    Assuming na less than 1Gbps yung internet plan, pwede na yung quality na CAT5e cable. CAT6 or higher, pang longer runs ng 2.5Gbps and above na.

  • Question po. May actual difference ba kapag gumagamit ng dynamic DNS (DDNS) in lieu of static IP? On the verge of choosing between static or DynDNS, so kailangan ko malaman kung sapat na ba yung DDNS para sa use case ko. Hoping merong maka-provide ng real-world examples, kasi hindi sapat 'yong nabasa ko na articles online e.
  • Can my old routers broadcast 5.2ghz frequency? Models are Asus 520GU and CDR KING CW-5358U. Tried reaearching but not really sure.

    based on the specs they are not dual-band so nope. i have personally used the 5358u since it was released 10yrs ago. imho it's not recommended to use them anymore.

  • Try lang po baka me makatulong Using ASUS rt-ax55 router mga first few weeks ok ung bato ng signal ng 5G then recently bgla humina up to the point na maski speetest ayaw na
    all settings are default TIA.....
  • any users ng asus rt-ax86u? why you choose this? paano kapag normal wifi user kalang would you recommend this? or get cheaper one?

    i personally use this as my main router. it covers our whole 2nd floor (105 sqm) without issues. i upgraded from ac68u to ax86u, previously I can only get a max 400Mbps, after upgrade I now get a max 500Mbps. the ax86 also seems to provide better range and throughput. for wifi 6, this is one of the recommended routers.

    my setup below.
    1st Floor - asus ac68u (wired access point)
    2nd Floor - asus ax86u (main router)
  • ^ may budget naman kaso nanghihinayang lang ako kung ang usage ko lang is internet, stream 1 tv, wala din ako mashado wifi 6 devices.

    im eyeing for tplink ax73 ax5400 or asus ax86u.
  • im eyeing for tplink ax73 ax5400 or asus ax86u.

    what router are you using now? ako kasi familiar na sa interface ni asus kaya yun na rin binili ko.

    i tried tuf ax3000 kaso dumami deadspot sa bahay compare sa redmi ax5 ko na router. kaya parang nadala ako bumili ng mahal. :(
    kaso eto na yung mga issue naglalabasan na nung dumami yung gumagamit ng wifi.

    using redmi ax1800 right now.
  • ^
    if range is a problem, then perhaps you need to look on adding another router/ap.

    for the ax86u, it handles 25 devices with no issues.
  • ^ just bought ax5400 tuf sulit sya kasi abot na yung mga deadspot sa bahay and mabilis din magconnect mga wifi :)
