CNET editors choose the best 802.11ac networking devices, including wireless routers.
Remember the WRT54G Wi-Fi router? Linksys' latest WRT1900AC will make you reminisce the good old days.
With top performance and friendly pricing, the Trendnet TEW-818DRU is a excellent choice for those wanting a robust home network.
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.
The Linksys EA6400 is a good router, but for its current price, its Wi-Fi performance is rather disappointing.
The Netgear R6300 WiFi Router is for a high-standards, low-ego type of user: it's not something you can show off aesthetically, but it's a powerhouse for a robust, fast home network, both for now and tomorrow.
The Linksys E4200 v2 makes a great upgrade to the original version and an excellent investment for those who need a fast, feature-rich, advanced, yet easy-to-use router for the home or even a small business.
Tiny and affordable, the TP-Link 150Mbps Wireless N Nano Router makes a great companion for mobile users needing to share their hotel room's Internet with wireless clients.
The Trendnet TEW-812DRU is the most affordable 802.11ac-enabled router on the market, and it offers excellent performance.
The lack of Gigabit Ethernet in many ways cancels out the Netgear R6100's support for the fast 802.11ac standard and makes it just an average Wi-Fi router.
Underpowered but supereasy to use and affordable, the Linksys E1200 makes a good entry-level Wireless-N router for home users.
