Finding the right router can bring joy, especially when it does everything you need it to and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
The ASUS RT-AC1200 V2 is one such router.
At its heart, this is a budget-friendly router without a lot of frills, aimed at people with a fibre internet connection. These are both good things, because that means fibre internet users get just what they need, without extra fancy features that they might never use.
That’s not to say this isn’t a rock-solid router, though, far from it. It offers 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi connectivity, can be set up and accessed via a smartphone app, and it supports fibre network connections of up to 100mbps as the one WAN and four LAN ports on the back are 100mbps ports. A single-core Mediatek processor takes care of processing duties.
On the back of these modest specs, the RT-AC1200 v2 will connect multiple devices to the internet quite easily over Wi-Fi, and its 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios provide reliable wireless connectivity.
Who should get one?
So, who is this router good for? Given its mid-range specs and affordable pricing, this is a great router for families, people that live in flats, and anyone whose fibre internet is slower than 100mbps.
This router is also good for people who aren’t hugely technical as setup is easy (done via a browser and a smart setup wizard), and changing settings via the ASUS Router smartphone app is as easy as reading a screen and pressing on clearly laid-out options.
It’s fair to say that for the average South African fibre user, the RT-AC1200 v2 is more than sufficient. For users with faster fibre connections, routers with gigabit LAN ports, like the ASUS RT-AC86U, are a better alternative.
