Re: I don't want to play nice...

I've been considering the R7000. Most neighbors are likely using $30 Walmart routers so I doubt there's too many $180 routers out there for me to compete with. Do any home wireless routers use the latter technology that you mentioned?

Unfortunately not. If you go with the R7000 make sure to get the latest firmware from Netgear - Firmware Version 1.0.3.24 (802.11ac Wi-Fi CERTIFIED)

Price has nothing to do with with how well they will fight with each other.

The $180 R7000 will fight much better if it can lock 40mhz. My point was that a $30 router will not have that feature.

Have you looked/surveyed 5GHz? You might be surprised. If you have, ignore this.

if saturation is a concern, you could also try a powerline router (many companies make them, not fronting Netgear, just the first link i found) »www.netgear.com/home/products/ne ··· werline/

Yes I currently have a 802.11a/g wireless router. Very few of my devices use .11a anymore and most are .11n so it's been time for me to upgrade for awhile. I've always used and preferred .11a for the past 9 years.
