We are planning to provide free internet for our customers while they are in our shop. I cannot afford much on the internet and hence planning to provide internet which is simply sufficient o browse but not download huge files. Maximum customers at any time will be 15-20. For the given number of users, which is the best wifi router available in market? Shop size is 1000 Sqft and hence I expect to use only one router. Kindly, share the details of router which i can explore. Another added advantage would be to control the speed allowed to the customers. Are there any software for the same?
Need your suggestion for wifi router
There are many routers that you can buy in the market that will give you what you’re looking for. For me, I will suggest a router though expensive but you can make sure that it will be the best option for you, save you also money for buying cheap router and replacing it later.
AC1900 Wi-Fi Router (DIR-880L) this one work great. This works great with 20-30 customers and even good in video streaming so you can rally depend on this with less lags.
1. Price ranges from $199 to $259
2. Can reach up to more than 100 feet
3. With amplifiers and antennas for greater range and speed of bandwidth
4. Guess network access, firewall and Denial-of-Service protection
5. Great with upstream and downstream
6. Simultaneous dual band 2.4 & 5GHz and Beamforming
With your questions about limiting the user’s bandwidth, there are several free-software that you can use to do this. You can use NetBalancer, Traffic Shaper, and Nimbus.
