Though pricey, the WRT1900ACS' long range and rapid Wi-Fi will deliver fast Internet to places in your home that other routers might struggle to reach.
The top routers that support the new 802.11ac standard on the market. Since there aren't that many of them, all of those on this list are the best of their kind.
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.
Homes with lots of devices will benefit from the Linksys EA8500's speedy Wi-Fi and storage performance, but those with modest needs should look for something cheaper.
The WRT1200AC is just way too expensive for a second-tier 802.11ac router.
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.
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.
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.
If you can afford the hefty price tag, the Linksys WRT1900AC Wi-Fi router is easily one of the best home routers on the market.
Unless you live in a very small home and need a color router to match, skip D-Link's latest DIR-818LW in favor of more powerful options.
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.
