Only those who do a lot of local intensive tasks via Wi-Fi, or who can appreciate the Asus RT-AC3200's excellent feature set, will find this router worth the investment.
Asus announces the RT-AC88U, its first high-end router that has eight Gigabit LAN ports and supports MU-MIMO technology for better Wi-Fi coverage.
Considering its insanely cheap price, the TP-Link TL-WR841N is a great buy for a small home with modest Wi-Fi needs.
At the IFA electronic trade show, Asus unveiled its latest Wi-Fi router, the RT-AC5300. It has two 5GHz bands that each can deliver up to a 2,167Mbps data rate and one 2.4GHz band with up to 1,000Mbps, by far the most powerful specs on the market. The router is slated to be available by the end of the year.
Pricing not available
The RTA2600 is a solid router that excels with multiple connected devices, but its competitors are faster and less expensive.
The Buffalo WXR-1900DHPD router is too expensive for what it has to offer. Skip it and pick one of many better options out there.
The hefty price aside, the Asus AC2400 RT-AC87U is the most complete 802.11ac router to date, capable of satisfying all your home networking needs.
Even when it's working well, the Netgear R8000 Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless Router has nothing to justify its expensive price tag.
Despite a few minor shortcomings, the DIR-880L is still one of the best 802.11ac routers on the market.
So long as you're not a networking newbie, the Totolink A2004NS AC1200 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router is a good deal for those living in a small or medium home.
