I am running a small business from home and I am having latency issues currently. I identified my router as the likely culprit. I am looking for advice on appropriate hardware to solve the issue.
- 3 business servers over LAN that are bandwidth intensive (up to 500Gb upload and 500Gb download per 24h) and require very low latency.
- About 8 home devices over 5Ghz wifi that do regular home stuff (netflix, videoconference).
- 940/940 Mbps internet connection (business contract).
- A Synology RT1900AC router that I purchased before starting my business.
I started experiencing network issue after adding the third server, mostly apparent during videoconference. I found out that the CPU of the router is often running at above max capacity, so I guess that this is the culprit. 5Ghz wifi coverage is good and I have no interference.
Could you help me decide between those options or suggest another option. I am not a networking professional so would appreciate something that is relatively easy to setup.
Purchase a business grade router (no wifi) and use my current wifi router in bridge mode just for the wifi. Any recommendation on the router I should purchase?
Just replace my wifi router by a new and better wifi 6 router. I really don't know what to look for based on my needs. I like the Netgear AX120 (700$ CAD on amazon Canada), but don't know if it would do the job for the servers and it is targeted for a home usage (I'm more hybrid). Any suggestion on what I should buy?
Thanks a lot!
