Recommend me a new Router.

Recommended Posts

Good Evening All,

My home router Netgear N3700 has finally shat it's self and I am getting next to no wireless bandwith and Gigabyte ethernet is slow as a pug with a full belly!

 

Looking at upgrading and need some suggestions please. Budget of around $200 and I would like it to have strong wifi connections through wood walls and up to 20 meters distance.

 

As a bit of an idea what will be hooked up to it. Is an 8 port switch, which shares to my HDTV, PC, Receiver, NAS, DVD player and Printer via Ethernet and then wifi I have 1 laptop, 2 smart phones, 2 tablets and any guests that visit.

 

Hope this helps and thanks for the assstance.

Is the router section PURELY for the 4 ethernet ports and to connect your ADSL?

 

If so; you're WAY better off getting devices you KNOW are good for their job.

 

First, for $39

Grab one of those, it's a Broadcom chipset, so it'll have the bes possible ADSL connection.

Disable the wifi on it.

 

Then get one of these for $179

Ubiquiti UniFi AP AC LR 802.11ac Access Point

You have NO IDEA what WiFi is, until you've used a UBIQUITI.
