The novelty has rather big dimensions: each shelf is not fit such a whopper. It is worth considering that this router cannot be hung on the wall.

On the bottom there are 4 rubber feet, through which the device is securely in place. To make efficient and high-speed camera is more available, the vendor had to make some compromises.

Speed is enough for all

Eight antennas are not decorative. They work as follows: four operate at maximum speed to 1733 Mbps (5 GHz band), the other transmit information to 800 Mbps (2.4 GHz band). The router supports MU-MIMO. That is, it is really multiplayer: even if you connect a large number of devices, the speed will not fall. Reliable connection promotes and supports Beamforming. A7000R it allows you to focus the signal on a specific gadget. This especially helps in the environment where the router and the smartphone are separated by walls or other obstacles.

In practice, the new Totolink shows good results. Throughout the apartment the signal is stable. Note that the signal in the 5 GHz band has less range and penetration than 2.4 GHz. For comparison, through two reinforced concrete walls sixteen feet from the router the signal strength in the 5GHz band was 45%. And in the case of 2.4 GHz is 55%, despite much interference.
