Synology RT2600ac Wireless Router Review
And the reason why it’s not because of the price the price for the Synology RT 2600 AC is going to cost you a little bit more but the reason why I would get this then the one that I have back home is because it’s easy to set up this is this is one of those routers if my friend or family member is like or not I want you to set up my wireless at home what should I get so you can go set it up I would say look get this price is a little high but it will make it so easy to set it up it’s just extremely easy another thing I like about the RT 2600 AC is the power it has a lot of RAM I think it’s running a quad-core processor and the memory those two things it runs like a mini nuke computer which is awesome it does have a lot of awesome features like the safe access the unit is it the multi the multi-user multiple-input multiple-output kind of technology also has been forming has all little neat features it is fast I found myself clean video games wirelessly I know I hardly play games on the wireless system I like to put everything wired my PC my laptop wire it play games destiny League of Legends but I wanted to test it out it works extremely well especially if you go inside the console you’re able to tell it which machine in your network should get more you know more network more more wireless connection more power it just works I was really surprised that it works but every wireless router in the market will work great if you have a strong bandwidth meaning if your internet service provider is strong enough if you have like 100 milliwatts or a second or even higher with your input and outputs connection your upload and download you’re gonna get that great internet speed if you have a sucky speed your wireless router is gonna run sucky okay don’t think because you purchase a very expensive wireless router that when you plug it in you’re gonna get fast speeds that’s only the first part ok the second part is what you insert inside that lamp or alright if your Verizon or AT&T; or spectrum or whatever services you have does not have that import and output basically your download and upload speeds are not high enough you’re not gonna get that great Wireless speed for me I had a lot of bandwidth so when I inserted this guy inside my network I was getting those speeds it was just amazing I was super surprised alright so I’m gonna stop talking and we’re gonna go over some of the configuration and installation because again it was super simple and I would definitely recommend this to anyone even my grandparents if they were say a lot and they wanted Wireless I would definitely get this because it’s in an out kind of situation figure the RT 2600 AC from so nology I got the router over here hooked up power the blue cable is actually connected to my my WAM the green cable is connected to the LAN alright blue cable is gonna give me internets green cable is with one of the LAN ports which this laptop is hooked up to the green and I’m a part of this guy on ok if you have the router facing you the power button is like right there and it’s a top key and turn this guy on it does take a while for it to boot up I did notice when I was doing the unboxing for you guys so this little status indicator right here is Amber it takes a while for it to change green but once everything is fully loaded the 2.4 gigahertz and the 5.0 gigahertz and also the WAM one will change all green all right so we’re gonna wait until that stuff loads up and we are going to configure it okay so the Sun ology arty 2600 AC router has completed in rebooting everything is green the only thing that’s amber is actually on the I think the green this guy right here the land and the only thing that I have hooked up is the computer the laptop alright so once your Synology RT 2600 AC wireless router is up and running it is time to configure it you could use an iPad or a laptop within this demo I use the laptop and I search for the SSID it’s gonna be called a Synology router you’re gonna click on it it automatically wants you to insert the 8 digit pin I didn’t do this I clicked on connect using a security key instead and the default password is so Knology all lowercase you’re gonna click on X and then you answer whatever you want from here I’ve said no and boom you’re connected you’re connected within the router but it doesn’t have internet access ok and next thing we need to do is open up your favorite browser already had chrome up and running and you want to type in the following Raulerson ology comm once you’re into this you’re gonna hit enter it’s gonna start loading up and it’s gonna load this up super simple once you get this it’s just straightforward we’re gonna click on start you’re going to provide an EM and password confirm it make sure it’s super strong because this password is what is going to allow you to get into your router your RT 2600 AC router ok so once you provide a password you’re gonna click on next and then from here we need to change the SSID so my SSID was BTN HD my password confirm it make sure it’s strong you know click Next from there and then from here by default the operation mode is going to be a wireless router you are able to disable external access to your CRM if you click on the drop down right here you’re gonna have two options you can either make the wireless router a router or a ap an access point we don’t want to access point we’re trying to give ourselves to wireless you know connections so it’s going to be a wireless router and then from here you are able to access your router outside of your firewall I changed mines to enabled because I want to access it externally once you pick your options just click on next from here it’s time to set up your internet connection my default is set up as auto IP this is automatically going to get an IP address from your modem if you click on the drop down menu you got other options you could do a manual IP I picked manual IP and I enter the IP address subnet a gateway and also a DNS server which is all this right here I click on apply and once you hit apply your Synology is gonna take between three minutes it’s way States three minutes but it took a little shorter than that it was about a minute two minutes it’s setting everything up once everything is done you’re going to get this setup is completed it’s gonna say reconnect into your new SSID it’s not going to be so Knology router anymore so whatever you changed it that’s gonna be your new wireless name and then provide the password that you provided during the setup so when you click on your little wireless system on your taskbar you’re gonna see your new SSID being kind of advertised click on it click on connect again I do not like using the 8 digit password so I clicked on connect using a security key and I provided the password that I gave during the wizard and I clicked on next started verifying and connecting and connected secure awesome once you establish the connection with your new SSID the web page is going to change into this ok this is your portal to get into the router the username is going to be admin and whatever password you provided during the wizard hit sign in and then you get this nice little kind of welcome kind of start up page so click on starts it gives you a couple so what to do with the dashboard and then you have to make sure you update your system when I first set it up I had a push out maybe two or three updates and the weather you know you can push up updates is that your control panel is gonna have a number one so don’t freak out if you see this if you click on the control panel it’s gonna launch up and you’re gonna go to system you’re gonna have a new update now the CRM update is one one seven sixty nine forty one when I received the device I had 6502 update two so that was the current one I believe I had to do this twice so I click on download it’s gonna start downloading itself and once it finished downloading it’s gonna be ready to update click on updates definitely want to hit YES on this once it starts restarting you need this nice little timer one of the things I love about Synology they do give you a nice little display like a timer a lot of the routers in the market nowadays don’t do that they have like a loading bar and then once it restarts you don’t know if it’s restarting or not because they stuck on that loading bar where Synology they give you that nice little view or a countdown once it’s done it restarts it goes back into this page login with your username and password by default that username is admin and whatever password you provided when you set up the router sign in and again an additional update you’re going to see that one on the control panel so click on it go to system and you’re gonna see that it’s gonna try to check for the latest SRM updates and another one so once it’s downloading and I hit that update again hit yes on this the process is the same procedure it’s the same stuff it’s gonna take between 10 minutes for it to push out the firmware and once it’s done you’re gonna get the reboot once it reboots and you log back into your dashboard you’re going to see that new CRM has changed a lot you do get a couple of features that are do enjoy a lot with this new CRM one of the new features within the CRM update is the safe access which I like a lot you got threat prevention which is pretty awesome you don’t automatically get this so that means you have to go inside the package center and download it and install it within your your wireless router alright so we’re going to do some gaming on thus analogy RT 2600 AC this machine is connected to the Wi-Fi it is on BTN HD the only way that you know that I’m connected is if I go to router Doc’s technology comm and once you’re part of that network it allows you to log into the router which I’m doing right now and BAM cool now this computer this laptop is connected to the 5.0 gigahertz frequency so I’m gonna get a lot of good connection plus I kind of enabled it to give it a little bit more juice so I’m wondering how well it’s gonna work I normally don’t like playing any games on the wireless it’s not my thing but I am going to play a little bit of League of Legends to see how well that goes I do not like playing any games on wireless I like to be hardwired right now this laptop is only only two connections that’s the power and the USB which is this guy right here I wonder how the traffic is let me see if I could find my phone because on the phone if your phone is connected to the wireless router you are able to see of traffic on it so we’re gonna open up the di outer hopefully you guys to see and let’s see if we could get into where our you see traffic controller here goes where are you and traffic monitor here goes now I went back to 21 okay so that’s the laptop right now awesome this is all live right now upload and download and went up to 25 still 78% I feel like I’m gonna get a little bit of lag during my game time I just got 100% but sucking a little nose looking okay so we’re gonna play and see how well it goes and Mike I’m stuck on 28 milliseconds you dude this is this is awesome this is my first time actually playing on wireless I do not like playing wireless when I gain I did play destiny on this laptop on the Wi-Fi and it was so smooth the fact that I’m playing on wireless on League of Legends right now it’s pretty it’s super smooth I’m stuck on 28 milliseconds it hasn’t gone down it hasn’t gone up this is phenomenal now I personally own a net gear AC 1750 wireless router I think I spend it was wild back maybe that Destin ology our teen 2600 AC has I wish I knew about this guy before I purchased a Netgear one because I definitely win with this one now I’m not telling you guys that this one is the best in the world it’s just the features the into things the DS Rotter app everything just works and flows so simple it’s just simple like you saw the configuration is simple it’s get yourself up and running in less than five minutes just got to make sure that you upgrade the router push out all the firmware push out all the updates on all the packages and you’re up and running and no matter it’s time now during my testing on the RT 2600 AC it’s a powerful device but it’s only powerfully because of what I’m pushing into it meaning my bandwidth I have a strong bandwidth for my uploading download speed no matter what router I get I’m going to get that beautiful speed the router itself just kind of it’s able to manage that output in inputs my advice is trying to seamlessly and I like that I like that a lot I was super surprised to actually play League of Legends to get 28 milliseconds in stay on 28 milliseconds throughout the entire game I was just shocked I was like get out of here where have you been where I should have got you rather than get that Nick here again the price line it has a lot of neat features I think it’s one of the best wireless routers in the market there’s all the ones out there they’re a little bit you know a little better but this one right here the one that I have right in my hands that I’ve been testing out for you guys I think it’s one of the I say top three a lot of the routers in the systems will give you USB ports you are able to insert external hard drives to you know create like a nice little fasciae system you know that’s you know that’s all the devices out in the market – you know you have the dual band which gives you 2 12 4 or 5.0 gigahertz a lot of the routers in the market gives you that I think a lot of routers in the market gives you beamforming this one right here has the multiple user multi-input multi-output technology was it I think it’s called mu-mimo technology one of the things I love about this device is that it has two LAN ports we do failover you see that a lot with wireless routers and on dates but that’s a huge plus now over more if I needed to recommend a wireless router system to a friend or a family member I would definitely tell them about the Synology RT 2600 I’m not trying to hype up and tell you guys that you know got it definitely get this there’s other ones in the market that might be a little better but for me for what I’ve seen with all the features the price tag the app the way to set up and configuration is definitely a plus plus plus me so hopefully you guys enjoy this somewhat review on the Synology RT 2600 AC leave comments right below don’t forget about hitting that like button and
