Go for 2mbps plan.
I can only suggest you to place your router on correct locations so as to get maximum strength.
Place your router on 1st floor top with antenna facing perpendicular, you may receive good signals on both floors (just theoretical).

Ask your ISP guy regarding it, he might help you out with proper arrangements and router location.

read reviews,that's all i can say at this point.use sites like amazon international(not india one) to get an idea.e.g.looking at tp-link range extender(wa730re) reviews on amazon international/uk site it seems that configuring it manually is a bit difficult but otherwise it works fine.all range extenders use same principle & similar technology so they should work same,any difference is due to quality of hardware component(e.g.antenna) which is not possible to analyze in advance unless you actually see the product in action.

Routers is good enough and the 9 dbi antenna do offer a slightly better signal. Only the price seems to be on a higher side else seems good enough.

Or should I go with
Cisco E900+Netgear Range Extender?(2300+2450)
Or
TP-Link MR320+Netgear Range Extender?
(1900+2450)
Or
Asus N12C1 + Netgear Range Extender?
(180+2450)

Guys I need to buy fast or my bro will get that crap digisol from Internet wala!

Go for the tp link mr3420 plus the netgear range extender. Would cover all of your purpose within budget. Good range all over the place with the additional benefit of the tp link router capable of handling usb dongles if ever you need a 3G backup someday.

Sorry for resurrecting old thread but I am in trouble!
A lot of trouble!

I need to setup full coverage and I am planning to buy this-
RouterBoard.com : GrooveA 52HPn

500 mW output power is sufficient for 3x 3000 sq. ft home!

I got this mail from official Indian reseller of this product-


View attachment 14730

Currently I have Asus N12- D1 and it's very poor range just spreads coverage to upper and lower living.

What do you think guys?
Shall I proceed?
Anyone installed such products or have any experience with them?


Edit - reseller - Multilink Computers,New Delhi.

Hello guys !
Sorry for bumping up this old thread again.

But I might require assistance.

So my initial setup was

Local Broadband + Asus 12 + R7000 (bridge mode)

First floor fully covered
Second floor half covered which was fine.

New Setup-

Reliance Jiofi2 device + Asus N12 (broke) + R7000 (Got a new Replacement)

Jiofi2 speed - 7-10 Mbps continuous.

So Jiofi2 is itself a router with range up to 10m

I cannot connect R7000 to repeater mode with Jiofi 2

I would have to flash firmware.

New Position of devices -
Both in the centre of house

Jiofi 2 near centre of second floor and R7000 2.5 m vertically below it on first floor.

So here are my options -
#1. Open the Brand New R7000 flash xwrt/ddwrt and try using repeater mode.

ANOMALY - Will R7000 be able pull Jiofi's signal and repeat it?

#2 - Sell R7000 Get Mi 3 router from Gearbest for 2200.I tested for my Mi 2 router device and it was perfectly able to repeat Jiofi 2 signal.

#3. Sell R7000 and get Ubiquiti Unfi AC lite for 6.5k -7.5k from brick and mortar shop/dealer

Please suggest for any alternative suggestions.

Kunal

if your budget permits go for ubiquiti ac wireless access point. It is enterprise quality with good coverage and rock solid performance.
