My set up is this. I have.... MacBook Pro Retina 13” Late 2013 OX 10.9.4 Processor 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Currently using LINKSYS AC900 dual band model# EA6200 in a residential home. Nothing else is connected except my my macbook pro and the router is in my bed room. For the most part the connection seems to be solid especially if I stayed in my bedroom, however, as soon as I take my macbook pro into a living room, the connection starts to skips very frequently and often get disconnected. I have an important weekly skype call but it get cut of very often. Especially when using a video call. Now, Iam thinking I would like to try APPLE product to see if this improves. Currently, I am looking at Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station (ME918LL/A) for $180.00? Little pricey, but I suppose I can look into Apple Refurb section. But is it over kill? Does my Macbook Pro work well with this router ? Or should I step down(?) and purchase Apple AirPort Express Base Station (MC414LL/A) $93 instead ? I am really tired of my internet connection get districted with this supposedly GOOD router by LINKSYS.
