Synology Wireless Router RT2600ac reviews


08/02/2018 | | EU Flag |
High quality signal and sped up what is notoriously slow location to something a bit faster. Problems here are more the fault of the BT cabling so I am not going to say this was 50000 x better but it did make a difference.
02/02/2018 | | LR Flag |
Finally good wifi!! We needed something better than the freebie out internet provider gave us. I kept blaming the internet in general, should have bought one of these sooner! Bought on Tuesday afternoon, received Thursday morning. That will do nicely. Thank you.
24/01/2018 | | EU Flag |
We upgraded our router to this Synology RT2600 to give a stronger, wider connection but also because of having its won DSM giving more control over who has access to what and when.

It let me stream 4K video over WIFI, cool stuff.

I am looking with great interest in the Synology RT2600ac. I am moving from BT Infinity (using Homehub-5) and going to a small ISP that offers FTTC via Openreach. If I ditch the HH-5 and buy the Synology RT2600ac will I need a separate free standing VDSL modem or will the RT2600ac directly replace HH-5? (Addition information: a NTE5 ADSL/Broadband Filter Master Socket Adaptor Plate has been fitted). Thanks…..and regards
The RT2600ac will still need your ISP modem to use the internet - I would suggest using the HH-5 as the WAN/FTTC connection and the RT2600 as the wireless and network hub

Fantastic wifi speed, much faster than my virgin router wifi. Got ir for controlling my family content use. Plus it has excelent security protocols built in to protectm me from hackers.
27/02/2017 | | GB Flag |
Bought it fro two reasons actually! PLEX and faster wifi. I has quite big backup drive where I kept all my family photo and video files. But than I thought- no point of that data sitting on the shelf. So i found out I can connect it to this router and install Plex on the router. Now I can show my friends video archive on the TV. Plus it so much faster wifi. We can stream this on tablets with no lag.

I have a Synology NAS and was thinking of replacing my old Solwise router/modem with a Synology router - especially after reading you review RT2600ac. However, it looks as if I will have to buy a separate modem. My ISP (Vodafone) is changing me over to ADSL Max in the near future. Can you recommend a suitable modem? You help would be appreciated. Regards

Jack,
Thank you for your enquiry.

if you are on a standard system, you might be able to use the Netgear range of modem/routers, such as -

Is this router going to improve my Virgin Media or BT infinity speed at home?

Router itself cannot increase your broadband speed. But what is can do, is increase your wireless speed. It might be the case that your broadband is faster than your WIFI. In that case you should consider getting faster router. 

Here is some information about router speeds from most popular broadband providers.

All new routers from Sky, BT and Virgin have similar WIFI speed. They are b, g, n capable in 2.4GHz band plus wireless a, n & ac in 5GHz band (Dual-concurrent frequencies).

Virgin Media (Hub 3.0) has five internal antennas
BT Home Hub 5 - five internal Antennas and Smart Hub has 7 antennas
Sky Q Hub (antennas not mentioned)

Synology RT2600ac is very similar router like the ones mentioned above. You would probably not see massive increase in speed by choosing Synology. But you will certainly will if you have any of older routers.

Very excited! Made a preorder for this 5GHz wireles router. In theory while a single minute 1080p footage at the standard 30 frames per second requires only 130 MB, a 4K video at the same frame-rate will require a whopping 375 MB. This router should support data transfer speeds of 216 MB/s. Found span on synology partner list.

Am so glad I didn't buy the RT1900ac. I read some of the reviews on Amazon-UK. They aren't great. The 1900ac took ages to boot, it was slow to pair with devices, often connection would drop and range was not as fab as it claimed to be. Basically they tried to do too much with the old model. I will probably wait until a pro gets his hand on it and does a proper test.
Cheers for sharing!
