Hello, Need to order a router ASAP. See attachment for what TP-Link and etc routers are popular and easily available here. Keep looking up each router, but can't find a compatible one...

My internet setup is Hauwei B525 > Ubiquity Nano M5's > Router. Need to share a 10 Megabit cellular data connection with 10-20 users, so limit it to 1 Megabit per user max. Only other feature I need is video website blocking. Youtube/Facebook videos if possible, while still allowing facebook images/browsing, etc...


Anything under P3,000.

Just bricked a old Linksys E1700... Flashed it to DD-WRT, but couldn't get the wifi working properly... Iphone couldn't connect, laptop kinda connected once or twice. Tried all sorts of different settings. Tried to flash it back to Linksys firmware and bricked it.

Ok, I have some... I think. Want the most reliable/no hassle/easy to de-brick one.

Linksys E1200-N300.

I think a Linksys E1200... Is my best bet. Probably Version 1, maybe version 2.

Just ordered it... Well see what version it is when it arrives.

I just managed to De-brick my E1700... To original linksys firmware.

Maybe I will flash it again and try again...

Wtf... Just re-flashed it with the same file(I think), and now I have DD-Wrt, not OpenWRT like before.

Everything appears to be working...

I think Asus rt-ac5300 is hands down best tor range and throughput. Also netgear x8 ac5000 or ac5300 can be gotten for a good deal Nd close second.
