Upgraded my home router to an AC Tri-band Router (Linksys EA8300) and am considering setting up my old Router as an AP Netgear (WNDR4300) for the downstairs

My question is if I proceed with setting this up, will I incur more latency since lack of beamforcing and is this overall worth doing? 

Thoughts?

I certainly wouldn't even think of doing this unless you are having problems with getting a signal somewhere that you need it.

 

Wireless N was a major improvement over G and AC is an even bigger improvement than N was as far as signal penetration through obstructions.

Awesome man, I appreciate the input and more than addressed my concerns. Will definitely not go forward with the setup.  

 

Thanks @Britechguy
