Hello guys,

So, isn't there any good and reliable N router with detachable antennas?

The ones I could remember:

- RT-N16 (which is not reliable IMO)
- RT-N12 (I gave 2 for my cousins but I don't go there much, also I cannot find them for sale anymore)
- RT-N66U (Not available in my country)

I might ask in Atheros forum as well, but I've never had one, so I don't know if builds works well and if Atheros based routers are good.

Thanks for any input!

RT-N16 is reliable if you give it a good power supply. I run mine on 7 Amps and is fully stable.

Thanks for your input Eko! About the RT-N16, it has 3 antennas, webgui only have configuration options for Left and Right, does it mean I should leave the mid antenna stock?

What do you think if I do some tests with these 3 antennas routers to see what happens? Maybe we can add Mid Antenna to the GUI?

I'm only seeing because in some cases you will likely need a higher gain antenna and would be nice to have the ability to setup it properly. Don't know, you are the dev, just a thought Smile
