Do I need a better router for my Wi-Fi security cameras?

Sam from Costa Mesa, CA

Episode 1508 (1:12:38)

ASUS AC3200

Sam lives in a 2 story condo, but with the Wi-Fi enabled cameras he's buying, should he get a new router? Leo says Wi-Fi security cameras are often a challenge because they tend to be in the periphery, but a single router should be able to cover his 1500 square feet. Leo suggests that Sam move his router and modem connection to another spot. He could actually leave the modem where it is, and just connect the router with a longer ethernet cable. Leo also says that Sam's Asus router has added some mesh-like features in a recent firmware update. So he should try updating it. Then he could add a bridge upstairs that can act as a repeater.
