CNET editors choose the best 802.11ac networking devices, including wireless routers.
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.
With top performance and friendly pricing, the Trendnet TEW-818DRU is a excellent choice for those wanting a robust home network.
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.
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 SkyDog router combines near-obsolete hardware, and state-of-the-art firmware into a box that's destined to dig a hole your pocket. Good thing we have CNET editor Dong Ngo who says "not so fast!" to it!
D-Link announces at CES 2014 the first 802.11ac-capable portable router that can also work as a juice pack, the $99 Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger.
Though feature-rich, the Skydog's hardware is too slow and limited to justify its high cost and ongoing subscription pricing.
The DGL-5500 has a lot of potential, but for now isn't worth its high price.
Win a speedy high-end router from Linksys that CNET's networking reviewer calls one of the best home routers on the market. Wi-fabulous!
CNET editor Dong Ngo, among other things, shows off his amazing analytical skill with not one but two Linksys WRT1900AC routers, at a time, and apparently that's not the only time he feels special.
