If you live in a relatively large home with plenty of available wall plugs, the Orbi RBK30 makes a great Wi-Fi system, though not necessarily the best.
Though not perfect, the Orbi RBK40 is an excellent buy for those living in a large home, thanks to its great performance and full feature set.
You now can get your own internet equipment even if you use telephone service from Comcast.
The high cost aside, the Orbi System is a sure and easy way to cover a relatively large home with high-speed Wi-Fi coverage.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The DGL-5500 has a lot of potential, but for now isn't worth its high price.

The EnGenius ESR300H High Power 300Mbps Wireless N Router is cheap, and you get what you pay for.
Supporting Wireless-N and HomePlug AV, the D-Link DHP-1320 Wireless N PowerLine Router is an ideal router for a home network that favors flexibility over performance. Its lack of support for Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band wireless, and the 500Mbps power-line standard, however, makes it less suitable for those who need to share or stream a large amount of data.
The Asante Smart HotSpot Wireless N Router AWRT-550N could make a good investment for a public wireless hot-spot, but its log-in security is overkill for home or office use.
The Netgear WNDR3700 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router is a great dual-band router for networking enthusiasts who also want a quick and easy network storage solution.
The Linksys WRT110 RangePlus is an unconventional and stylish wireless router that supplies near draft 802.11n throughput without being an official Draft N router. We like this affordable, antenna-free router for networks where Wireless-G and Wireless-N clients coexist.
The Windy31 USB Wireless Router is not a router in the traditional sense. This small, USB drive lets you create a wireless network with access to the Internet from any one PC that has an Internet connection. It's a must-have for travelers who need to share their Internet access with different Wi-Fi devices.
