House is a rancher 50 ft by 30 ft
furthest from router is about 40 feet 2 walls
Looking to play games and watch TV and stream in 4k.
My problem is The routers suggested by review sites seem to have bad reviews on Amazon or Newegg.
Issues I have seem are
Router needs to be rebooted constantly and 2.4 died after a few months etc.
Ones I am currently looking at are
Nighthawk AC 1750
TP-Link Ac2300
TP-Link AC2600
but I am open to any suggestion's and information about the choices.
I am hoping to spend somewhere between $50.00 - $175.00 depending on what kind of feedback I get. I want a reliable long lasting wireless router that can accommodate the above.
