    router RT2600 or RT6600

    Just wondering if anybody has a perspective on the value of the RT6600ax over the RT2600ac I currently have an RT2600ac, and it looks like its ethernet ports are going bad. I can't get a reliable Ethernet connection DHCP allocation on any ports ~ I can do it on WiFi - a bit weird. I have had...

    DSM DHCP server
