"This is a router that does everything you could ever as for, whether you're a network noobie who just wants to run the setup wizard and have everything running in seconds, or you're an advanced user who wants to fiddle with the deepest of settings."
"At the end of the day, the Synology RT2600ac isn’t just about the numbers. The Synology Router Manager software and interface are insanely powerful and yet easy to use. It’s great to be able to enhance and expand the capabilities of your router by installing the packages you need. Synology have done a great job with their provided packages – the Intrusion Prevention and VPN Plus packages are both easy to use and great for the security conscious. But you aren’t limited to Synology’s packages, some of the most useful addons come from third party packages and you even have the power to run Plex Server."
