With the rapid spread of the Internet all across the world, a lot of devices appeared. In order to use it fully, the router should be a must-have device in your house. However, what to look at when choosing the receiver: NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 vs NETGEAR AC1200?
WiFi Speed. Want an incredibly fast internet? But you have doubts what to choose from NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 or AC1200, the best choice for you is AC1750 that speeds up your limits up to 1750 Mbps (versus only 867 Mbps that AC1200 offers). It is especially great for office use – you can be sure that everyone has enough WiFi to do their everyday tasks properly.
Encryption algorithms. Here I would choose NETGEAR AC1200 for sure. It supports all types of protocols (WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, WEP) and therefore ensures that the data you entered is strictly protected. Don’t think that AC1759 doesn’t protect your data or so, just compare to the previous model it supports only WEP encryption type.
Channel quantity. Maybe a parameter that is not so important in everyday life, however, it is extremely important in the office environment when you have all sorts of devices connected everywhere. Luckily for you, NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 has 16 channels that allow everything to work without any signal interference. So why may you think further NETGEAR AC1200 vs AC1750? The answer is that if you are looking for a home router, I doubt you ever need more than 2-3 channels, and 3 are exactly how many AC1200 model has.
Reset button. Sometimes the Internet just stops working without any specific reason. Whilst thinking if it is a provider or something is wrong with your local router, it worth be checking the router. Here the reset button is a great help – if WiFi appeared after the reset, it was a random bug, however, if the router is working and the WiFi is not – worth calling your provider! Unfortunately, out of our models only NETGEAR AC1200 has a reset button so for the more comfortable home use I would prefer this one.
Data transfer at 1,200 Mbps/sec, 4 RJ-45 Ports, and 256 MB RAM in one box is an amazing deal that NETGEAR offers. Personally, I would advise it for the office use as it requires lots of info being passed synchronically along different channels and great speed control.
LED indicators, only 2 antennas (you don’t need to attract too much attention to the router, right?), smaller size and IPv6 VPN support make AC1200 a great router to choose for your house. Just as a cherry on top, it has QoS Support available to you!
