Netgear R8500 Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router
Only savvy users with a high-end server in their network should consider the Netgear R8500; for everyone else, there are many other router options that deliver as good or better performance for less.
TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N Router
Considering its insanely cheap price, the TP-Link TL-WR841N is a great buy for a small home with modest Wi-Fi needs.
Buffalo AirStation Extreme AC1900 DD-WRT NXT Wireless Router
The Buffalo WXR-1900DHPD router is too expensive for what it has to offer. Skip it and pick one of many better options out there.
Linksys EA8500 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
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.
NetGear R8000 Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Gigabit Wireless 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.
D-Link Wireless AC750 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router ( Red)
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.
Trendnet AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router
With top performance and friendly pricing, the Trendnet TEW-818DRU is a excellent choice for those wanting a robust home network.
Linksys EA6900 Smart WiFi Wireless AC Router AC1900
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.
Netgear R6100 WiFi Router
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.
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router EA6400 Dual Band N300+AC1300
The Linksys EA6400 is a good router, but for its current price, its Wi-Fi performance is rather disappointing.
