Just got an Airtel 1 Gbps plan, luckily the team was in the same building setting up another connection. So all the wiring and hardware was all set in 2 hours. The activation is supposed to happen by tomorrow.

I am on Youbroadband 200 mbps right now and Dir 825 ac 1200 router works great, but for a 1 Gbps speed, I had to spend a lot of time today looking up a router that will actually come close to delivering 1 Gbps over wifi, heck anything over 800 mbps and I will be happy.

Which router do you guys use for a 1 gbps connection? What's your experience been like?

Mesh and for each 1200sqft you need extra extension for 300-400mbps speeds at most places.

Man which mesh router would support 800mbps on wireless :D especially when it is not connected to the primary router by ethernet!

Oh, I did misread that one.

OP, look for a router first which can handle 1gbps routing. Wifi can be added via an access point separately.

@buggybuggy have you tried running a speedtest on your DIR 825 to see if you can hit Gigabit on wired connection?

Usually routing Gigabit WAN to LAN is hard for consumer routers with weak CPU
