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.
At CES 2016, Linksys announces its first AC5400 (also known as AC5300) router, the EA9500 and a few other networking products that support the latest MU-MIMO technology.
The Asus RT-AC3100 is essentially a stripped-down version of the RT-AC88U. It has only four LAN ports compared with eight on its big brother.
Considering its insanely cheap price, the TP-Link TL-WR841N is a great buy for a small home with modest Wi-Fi needs.
The WRT1200AC is just way too expensive for a second-tier 802.11ac router.
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.
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.
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.
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.
