Is this internet setup OK?

Question

deep1234    1

Hi guys, I got a friend who upgraded his home internet from the ISP to 500 MB. Currently, from the router is connected to three access points throw a cable, and most of them are old and my plan is to change all of them.

 

So my idea so far is to have a router that can handle 500 MB and access points that can handle 250 MB. That's for cost saving  an they are not have that heavy usage.

 

Router: TP-LINK Archer AX6000

Access Point: TP-LINK Archer AC5400 X 3

 

So what do you guys think? Please let me know if you have anything in mind.

 

Thanks,

I'm not 100% sure, but I think any current router can do 500. Just your modem has to provide it.

 

Why does he have 3 AP's?

Probably for full coverage. I have three as well.

Why are you getting him wifi6 AX router, if his wifi is light?

 

And then those are not Accesspoints - those are Triband routers...

 

For cost savings??  What?  What does he currently have?

 

For less money than you could get a unifi Dream Machine, and 3 flex for AP.
