Matthew Birmingham says:

For the cost of one Netcrap or TotalCrapLinkRouter, I can buy (4) decent Ubiquiti Unifi PoE access points, have a much better signal level, and have pretty much the same throughput – not to mention a secure solution

You can easily fix this minor issue by boosting the antenna output by 1 billion times.

Will Freitas says:

Apparently the bluetooth signal of my launch PS4 is 60 ghz

Charles Pack says:

As a person that has been installing this stuff since token ring and vampire taps I can tell you that a hard line is still the way to go for anything stationary, wireless will never match the speed of a good old copper or optical line

marawan BG says:

AD in Bulgarian means hell…PERFECT

SqueezY- tube says:

Ethan Bitar says:

Nice face Linus @ 7:40

Sergeant Nathan says:

The answer, as always, is no. If you are going to drop that much on the access point and client, guess what you can also invest in for that money? Multi-gigabit. Or heck, 10 gigabit. If you can run cable, run cable. For everything else, there’s Masterc… I mean, wireless.

Metallus Müller says:

2:48 i love python

Willaces Will says:

A year after you post this video, RIP AD, AX is in the house now. Please test it as soon as you got one, Linus

jsadamcik says:

Yay! Killing more of the spectrum we sound people use for wireless….time to buy new mics…AGAIN

KrakenStinks says:

it could be as fast as ethernet but its still unstable

Dakila Lozano says:

I’m a graduating student of IT but i don’t think i have the skills needed for networking which i think is the common job for it guy for most offices. Well i guess i will just try my luck and look for programming jobs which is rarely needed here in my city. ahahaha

Clid says:

How about we have long-range 1 GHz?

ttalgi says:

Please explain this on tech quickie

Gergely Poppe says:

So you are telling me, that buying $100+ Asus APs could prevent the need for me to buy $100+ APs!? What a deal!!!
