If you're looking for dependable whole-home Wi-Fi that you don't need to think about too much, take a good look at Eero.

With strong performance and sneaky value, the Asus ZenWiFi AX is an absolute standout among high-end mesh routers.
It's nothing fancy, but the newest Netgear Orbi is a fine mesh router system at a terrific price.
Netgear's fastest mesh router sets the bar for the category, but it's overkill for almost everyone.
This is a speedy mesh router at a tempting price, but the spotty, inconsistent mesh performance is a deal-breaker.
The Netgear is expensive, but earns its $200 asking price with incredibly fast speeds and useful features.
There's a lot to like about this router, but the equally expensive Netgear Orbi 6 is a more future-proofed alternative at this price.
The Velop is an effective mesh Wi-Fi router, but it doesn't have a competitive edge due to its high cost and limited feature set.
At $200, the Asus RT-AC86U is one of the best all-around routers. It has all the latest features, including extra security for all of your devices. This router should maximize your bandwidth and keep your home network running smoothly.
With full support for the latest-gen Wi-Fi connections, this router looks like a steal. But how fast is it?

The versatile Jetpack MiFi 6620L is an excellent mobile hotspot for those who live and travel within Verizon's 4G LTE coverage.

You'll pay a lot for the Asus RT-AC88U, but it has everything you'd want in a router. If you have the money, this is the router to get.
You can't beat what you get for the price with the DIR-867. It has lots of the top 802.11ac features and it performed well during testing. I'm not sure it will stand up to years of use, but you'll probably be looking to upgrade your network by then anyway.
