and only supports 6 or more client devices

So if I have 5 devices I can't use this router?

So let me get this straight.
You have 11.ac for the wireless which can get real world performance at near gigabit speeds, but you can only talk to faster wired devices like desktop computers and servers at 1/10th the speed?
That's as ridiculous as having an 11.n router and only using it for a 15Mbps DSL internet connection when 11.g is already overkill for that kind of application.

I picked up a nice $200 ASUS router a few months back that was a net wash. It came bundled with 2 games that I did not want and sold. It replaced my old 11.g router, which I also sold. It also replaced my gigabit switch I had been using, which I also sold. After all was said and done I made $25 by upgrading to 11.ac

... now if only I had any 11.ac devices in my home...

so many things wrong with this. where's the usb3.0 support, 600mbps on N, external antennas connectors, gigabit ports.
not having gigabite port is so stupid. it will limit internet @100.... even a 5 year old router does a better job.

:)  This 100 MB router is worth $18.99 in the current market, to be precise. I really don't understand corporate pricing sometimes. Nobody cares about the WiFi ac at the moment anyway.

You are not gonna get anywhere near every feature with a $100 router. It would be dumb of them to add all that onto their entry level 11.ac router, if you want all those features you will need to get their pricier model.

Seriously, 100Mb/s?

This means that you can only max out the router by moving stuff from one WiFi device to another.

And there was me thinking 100Mb/s N300 was stupid...

They obviously didn't make this router to sell, they made it to make the others look better!
