  1. hello sales department,
    please recommend me a router that can support astro-maxis iptv.
    Current default technicolor router always disconnect and reconnect a lot of times which totally destroy my download or gaming or browsing experience. Always get delay when gaming.

    Budget is ard RM 250.

  2. Hello Sales department,

    Please recommend a router that can improve Wifi range and speed for my Unifi 800mbps. Currently on D-Link AC2600 but keen to know if there are any routers that can maximise the speed of my internet plan. Budget is below RM500 if possible.

    1. Hi Malcolm,

      Can you let us know about your house size for a better suggestion?

      To be honest, we don’t have any router below rm500 to support 800mbps and guarantee can have better WiFi coverage than DIR-882 (D-LINK AC2600). If budget is really a concern, you can try adding on DAP-1860.

  3. Hi Sales team,

    Just wondered here if TP-LINK TL-WR840N router can support Unifi 100Mbps? What’s the estimated max speed can get with LAN cable & WiFi (100Mbps pack)?

    Thanks.

    1. Hi James,

      TL-WR840N is a wireless N router which based on our experience, we normally recommend for bandwidth package below 50Mbps.

      For 100Mbps, we recommend considering models like TP-LINK Archer C6 as this is a Gigabit AC1200 router that can support up to 300Mbps bandwidth.

      1. Hi Sales team,

        Can you suggest any budget routers with good speed performance for use with 100Mbps please? Is Tenda’s performance similar or better than TP-Link?

        Thanks,
        James

  4. Hi there

    My house built is about 2000sq ft. I am using Unifi with 800mbps subscription. Sadly, the speed at home is terribly poor when using WIFI. Please advise what sort of solutions, I can use to overcome this problem? What is the recommended mesh here?

    1. Hi Sanjay,

      You can consider these models – Deco M9 Plus, D-Link COVR-2202 or Asus ZenWiFi CT8. 2 pack will good enough.

  5. Hi Ookas sales department,

    My house is about 1100 sq ft with Unifi speed of 100Mbps (will consider upgrade the speed later). Im planning to use Powerline to increase the coverage of the existing router, would you recommend using Powerline or Mesh and what model?

    Thank you

    1. Hi there,

      Mesh wifi is the first choice as powerline adapter performance is highly depending on electrical wiring quality, and truth to be told, can be quite complex at times.

      The same powerline model can have vastly different performance at different house. You can try borrow from your friend to test (if they have powerline adapter), with that you’d be able to see if your house wiring condition is suitable to use powerline adapters or not.

  6. Hi Sales Team,

    I’m using astro iptv with maxis as my internet provider, currently on 30mbps plan. My house is a double-storey 2600 sq ft house, my modem is placed in the store room while my router is in living room next to my TV. Wifi reception at my backyard as well as upstairs rooms (above backyard) are poor. My tvbox reception (which is placed upstairs) is always lagging over wifi connection.

    Can you please suggest a solution that can help to improve wifi coverage throughout my house? only 2 persons staying in the house, and we mainly use internet for work, youtube and tvbox. Thanks.

    1. Hi Ker Huei,

      Can you let us know your current router model?

      Also please run a speed test on the mentioned areas below:
      Next to router, backyard, rooms above backyard and next to TV box.

  7. Hi Ookas,

    I have Astro IPTV + Maxis Fibre 30mbps (thinking upgrade to 100mbps). Living in 3 storey superlink house. 2-3 rooms each floor. 6 phones, 4 laptops, 2 netflix TV and 1 xbox. Should I go for AC + Mesh or AX routers? With budget up to RM300-400..

    Thank you

    1. Currently I’m using Maxis stock router. Facing some lagging during daytime when everybody online and furthermore with everyone WFH. So help me sifu, how to reduce the “why my Internet so slow” complaint?

    2. Hi Shah,

      With that budget, you can just opt for TP-LINK Deco E4 or Tenda Nova MW3, make sure to go for 3 packs for maximum coverage. These 2 mesh devices are good enough for 100Mbps bandwidth, you can also do bandwidth control within the app.

      1. Can I consider Wifi6 router? AX1500 from TP Link or AX1800 from Asus seems able to solve the problem and future proof too. What you reckon? Worth to go for Ax router or just stick to Mesh? Both are belo RM500 anyway.

  8. i am using unifi at home. Home is about 7000sqft.
    At present using asus rapture gt-ac5300 ai mesh.
    Since the Asus Rapture is in storeroom at one corner of the house, the signal outside is poor on the other corner of house.
    Was thinking of adding mesh.

    Which Asus mesh do you recommend?

    1. I suggest:

      1) asus zenwifi ct8 if you want still use gt-ac5300 as main router and combine Aimesh with it as all wireless backhaul use wifi5
      2) asus zenwifi xt8 if :
      i) u want setup xt8 as AP and still use gt-ac5300 as main router, or
      ii) u want use xt8 as main router and node only, or
      iii) u want use gt-ac5300 as main mesh router and xt8 as nodes and set wireless backhaul to only wifi5 (for xt8)

  9. Hi Ookas team,

    My company using 1x Asus BRT-AC828 (main router) and 6x Mi Router 3G v1 (AP with ethernet backhaul), also carefully distribute to channel 1/6/11 to minimize overlapping.
    Approx 150 devices connected at the same time, 75 via ethernet, 75 via AP wirelessly.
    However quite many wireless users get disconnected sometime or connected but no connection (! mark beside wifi icon) then recover itself after several minutes.

    Reason we bought BRT-AC828 because Asus advertised that it can support up to 250 simultanous client connection which suit our company usage.
    I assume AP is the problem, may I know what’s your recommendation mesh wifi?
    Will changing all AP to TP-Link Deco M5 improve my situation?Budget is around RM1.5~2k.

    Thanks and regards
    Ching

  10. Hi Sales Team,
    i am using Maxis Home Fibre 30Mbps, coming with voice services. Currently using the given Router Technicolor TG784n v3 with voice port. If i wish to replace this old router, what would be the recommendation brand and model, which need to support the voice port as well?

    1. Hi Darren,

      So far no router can support Maxis voice call, even yes, also not stable. Can I know what problem are you facing? Will give us better idea on what to recommend.

  11. Hi there,

    My Unifi Speed is 300mb. I was wondering if it is better to use ASUS RT-AC88U as my router or the original ZTE router provided by TM. I am currently using ZTE as the router (inside my store room) and it is connected to AC88U using a lan cable. I also have an AC68U both are meshed. AC88U at my living room and AC68U at first floor. My house is 4000sf.

    Thanks for your advice.

  12. Hi OOKAS support,

    I am using D-link DIR-850L router provided by Unifi which I have been using since upgraded to 300Mbps. Lately I find that my Android phone is very slow in getting connected via 5GHz wifi when close to the router but no problem when a distance away. But there is no problem when using 2.4GHz. I notice that D-link 850L is not in your recommended list. Instead your recommendation is D-link DIR-842. Which router is better DIR-842 or DIR-850L? My area of coverage is below 1000 sq ft. Can you recommend which router I should use for better and stable connection which I intend to replace my D-link DIR-850L with a better and stable connection?

    1. Hi Chew,

      DIR-842 or DIR-850L is already discontinued. 300Mbps can go for DIR-1360. much much better coverage, stability, and wireless speed.

  13. my house is 2000sqft terrance, have the stock version Unifi TP link router (placed at 1st floor) and a Tenda wifi extender at 2nd floor.

    I seems to get laggy connection when i do Zoom Video Calls, but other web activities seems rather fine.

    2.4Ggz Wifi Download/Upload speed : 41 / 15 Mbps on 2nd floor room, 79/52 Mbps right besides router.

    what do you reckon could be the issue and the recommended router model in such instances. Thanks.

    1. Hi CH,

      Could be zoom issue as everyone is connected to their server. Can I know where do you do your zoom call? 2nd floor or first floor?

      If you’re on 100Mbps plan, technically you should get 100Mbps right beside your router though.

  14. Hi, I’m on unifi 100mbps with stock dlink dir-842. I’m having constant packet loss during gaming, not having problem if I switch to USB mobile phone data tethering. Many suggest to change the router.

    Can recommend an upgrade router from dir 842? Usage is for 1 person in a small single storey room.

    1. Hi Jo,

      Are you referring to PC?

      If yes, better just direct connect LAN cable to the router. Too many router can support 100mbps, better know budget. Btw, packet loss might due to ISP service also, not necessarily caused by router.

  15. HI Ookas,

    I went through the list of unifi-router-list. However, I couldn’t decide which one to use to upgrade my FIL’s UNIFI 100MBPS plan. It is a double story house but nowadays the couple is sleeping on the ground floor due to FIL’s medical condition.

    Occasionaly I would be there to use internet for personal/work reason.

    Do you have any suggestions about which model to use?

    1. Hi Aldred,

      Will you be looking to upgrade the ISP Plan in future? If not, you may opt for Mercusys Halo which is suitable for 100Mbps speed, it’s a mesh WiFi running in wireless N. Not the best but does it’s job.

      If you want more canggih ones, you can go for TP-LINK Deco series, but it’s a slight overkill for 100mbps.

  16. Hi there

    I am using UNIFI 800mbps and recently unifi gave me Deco m4 as my mesh solution withtheir contract. I am facing non stable speed that fluctuates between 5mbps to 100 mps speed using Wifi and through LAN i can get 400mbps.

    My house is about 4000sft and two floors. I don;t think UNIFI MESH Solution is working, what do you recommend?

    1. Hi Selvas,

      Deco M4 will not be able to provide you full speed, as it is designed for 300Mbps plan.

      You will need to upgrade to a better router / mesh router if you want to maximize your speed.

      You can tweak around this page and refer to the tool for 800Mbps plan devices ya.

  17. This maybe elementary question but here is my issue:
    I am on Unifi 100mbps. Been using this for a long time. Router is the L7-N-R2000 (got this with Unifi many years ago) with the ONU-Huawei -HG8240w & STB-Huawei-EC2108E-TM. Speed Test on TM site: Lan connected to my PC = DL50+/UP50+. Wireless DL20+/UP20+ (2ft away). Usually connected about 3/4 devices Wireless but not heavy users. House is 1 floor about 1600sqt
    2) Please suggest what options do I have to get better performance/speed to maximize the Unifi. Change Router? or switch to Mesh wi-fi?
    3) IF Mesh wi-fi, do I use it with the current old router or can I use is as Stand Alone without the old router?
    4) Please suggest models & best option.

  18. Hello,

    I am using dynamic ip of 350mb and I have the Tenda AC10 works well on the LAN but on Wifi I can’t get 350mb in the same room in maximum 270mb my house has 1615ft any suggestions to improve? I thought of AC18 or AC23 and maybe I put AC10 as a repeater.

    Sorry my english

    Thanks!
