Upgraded my router today. Got an Asus RT-AC86U. So far I'm impressed. Configuration was simple. Features are nice and it appears to be pretty quick. Well at least as quick as my crappy internet service. Can't wait to upgrade that.   .

Cosmic

Fortune Cookie: The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape. I could use some cosmic duct tape right now. Going absolutely batty trying to rebuild this Surface 3.
