+1 to this

Many recommendation & good reviews
Unfortunately it is currently not available.

how about this?

TPlink archer C1200


Or this one? TPlink archer C60


Or Dlink DIR 825


My main concern is range and no speed drop. I have home office for both me and my wife, using laptops. However the smart TV with fire stick is in a separate room with 2 walls in between. We also have multiple cell phones for me, wife and parents. Also a ipad is there.

I dont require coverage in different floor but in the same floor speed should not drop. I have 85Mbps fiber optic connection from Alliance.

If you can wait then Archer C6 should come back into stock. If you can't then archer C50 or C60 looks good, tenda C8 is also good as it has a faster processor but its after sales support is not that good considering very few service centres compared to tplink.

Guys I ordered Tenda AC8 as this was only deliverable to my location and that too within tomorrow. Saw some good reviews on Amazon, specially for signal penetration through walls, so went for it.

TODAY A COUPLE OF HRS. EARLIER MY BROADBAND CONNECTION(ALLIANCE BROADBAND - KOLKATA) HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH OPTICAL CABLE FIBER TECHNOLOGY.:-D:number1::bananana:

I am under PREFERRED+ Plan, where the bandwidth IS UPTO 115Mbps.
But,why I am getting less than that?

Of course network is passing through Tp-Link Archer C20 ROUTER.

Friends @whitestar_999 ,@Nerevarine ,@dissel , @bssunilreddy , what are your thoughts & suggestions?

You will never get full speed all the time. All ISPs plan are "upto xxx mbps".

Apart from that, your router might be an issue but unlikely.
Congratulations

@kg11sgbg - Congrats for the Optical Fiber Connection, :smile::smile:
Please post the picture of the instrument they provided, Also post the cost of the upgrade and security deposit? I believe they take back the Lan cable - Right?
I believe your C20 Archer is the bottleneck here...Post Lan Connection Speed.

Archer C20 or any router with 100mbps wan port can not achieve internet speeds crossing ~95mbps. For achieving 100mbps+ net connection speeds you need a router with gigabit wan port.

^Now it's a DIRECT BROADBAND CONNECTION(LAN CONNECTION) bypassing the Router.

^You, see a small white box which is a G/EPON ONU Modem of "ASTRA" that has been provided by Alliance.

^Another rectangular Black Plastic Box dangling with wires besides the wall,has also been provided.


Cost of Service:
Here I was just being clean bowled and made a scapegoat. It is EITHER or NEVER.
Initially the price for the change of wires and setup was Rs.1500/-

But they simply charged and took Rs.3000.00(JUST DOUBLE) amount from me,citing the reasons of Increased price of wire,modem,charges due to Covid-19 + Lockdown + Cyclone Amphan. The whole thing has made a mess to the local economy of Kolkata,thus this DOUBLE IN PRICE has to be borne by the consumer.

Yes, the RJ-45 cable(Previous one for Broadband),which is attached to the various poles,will be coiled up and handed over to me within a few days.

I also got a similar type of setup. I have got the 85Mbps connection (Prime+). Had installed the Tenda Wifi router as mentioned in my previous post.

Speed got was the following. It was got in the room which has 1 room in between the room having the router. I am satisfied with the connection and router. Lets see how this goes in the long term. Only 2 hrs downtime of alliance in the last month.
