    Best range in AC3200?

    Need a new access point. Which AC3200-capable device(s) have the strongest/best range?

    If you need AC3200, you'd probably have to get a router (Asus RT-88u, for example) and configure it as an access point. Keep in mind this is a combined speed of three separate radios (1300ac+1300ac+600n).

    If you'd like a long range access point, I'd look into some of the commercial offerings, such as Ubiquity UAP-AC-PRO for example.

    We use Ubiquiti wireless products for our clients.
    What type of coverage are you looking for? Omni direction? Point to point? A focused direction? Different solutions for different needs.

    It is Equipped with 6 high performance antennas that make way for a stronger WiFi network with less poor signal areas than ever before.

    Why everybody is looking for best range access point, but nobody thinking about transmiting from devices to access point?

    Better range access points also are able to receive weaker signals, otherwise they wouldn't be able to establish connections at longer distance at all. You are right that both endpoints have to play together to establish a longer range connection, but it is often the case that clients are not configurable (i.e. laptops, mobile devices, etc.) and it is easier to upgrade the access point(s) in a coverage area.

    That's not exactly how it is, because all new features give you +20% for transmitting and just +4% receiving performance. Actually, you get maybe 5 or 6% extend real range.
    And what you see on your devices, that is level of receiving signal.
    Level of receiving from your mobile device to your router you can see on your access point.
