The top routers that support the new 802.11ac standard on the market. Since there are not many of them, all of those on this list are the best of their kind.
The WRT1200AC is just way too expensive for a second-tier 802.11ac router.
Though not as innovative as it should be, the Linksys AC2400 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router E8350 is still a very good router thanks to its fast 5Ghz Wi-Fi performance and comparatively friendly pricing.
Despite the novelty of 802.11ac support, the Belkin AC 1200 is a mundane, though decent, Wi-Fi router.
Though it's easy to use and having an extra band can result in higher speeds, the Linksys EA9200 doesn't have enough to justify its over-the-top price tag.
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.
Plagued by issues, the Linksys EA6900 Smart WiFi Wireless AC Router AC1900 is only as good as a single-band router and hence not worth its premium price.
Unless you love the radical design, the D-Link DIR-890L/R doesn't have enough to justify its hefty cost.
For advanced and professional users, the Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router is worth every penny thanks to its stellar performance, solid build, and bounty of useful features.
Despite its powerful hardware, the R7500 doesn't have the performance and features to justify its premium price tag.
