Can we buy an efficient AC1200 router at the price of a popular TP-Link N300?

A wireless router has become necessary, while the purchase of a suitable device is a problem... Companies offer huge number of routers operating in different ranges and with different functionalities.

But is it sure that the purchase of an efficient router which meets our basic but also sufficient needs must involve such costs? And whether by the amount of spent money will we certainly receive the expected performance, adequate to the price of the product?
In this article I’ll try to dispel all these doubts....

For our tests we’ve collected the most popular routers operating both in 802.11ac and 802.11n standards. All of these routers were compared in terms of range, performance, functionality and whether they are adequate for the aforementioned price...

The tests were carried out with the help of the iperf tool, or rather its graphic overlay based on the JAva platform with the graceful name Jperf.

Our test bench looks like this:

All tests were performed based on TCP packets, with 1 and 5 data streams (sender <-> reciver).
