My Experience with the Rockspace AC2100 Dual-Band Smart WiFi Router
To start the setup, I downloaded the Rockspace WiFi app on my phone. While it downloaded, I plugged the router into the modem and power source, then opened the RS WiFi application. Afterward, I clicked “Add Device,” scanned the QR code at the bottom of the router, and clicked “Join”. Once connected to the router I was able to customize my WiFi name and password (you can change this at any time). I had to reconnect to the router due to the new WiFi password. Finally, I was able to manage the router through the application. Then it was off to test the WiFi speed and at various ranges.

I don’t care for the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi speeds, but at the same time, it doesn’t matter due to the range of the 5Ghz Wi-Fi. I like the simple clean design of the router and the simple UI on the Rockspace Wi-Fi phone application. For only $79.99 on Amazon, this router competes very well against big brand name routers for the fraction of the price! Overall, I love the Rockspace AC2100 and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a new router.
