For advanced and professional users, the Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router is worth every penny thanks to its stellar performance, solid build, and bounty of useful features.
Google Wifi is the best Wi-Fi system on the market.
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.
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.
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.
The Netgear is expensive, but earns its $200 asking price with incredibly fast speeds and useful features.
If you're looking to create a fast and highly customizable home network with advanced features, look no further than the RT2600AC.
It's a cool looking router with a big, blue-rimmed hole in the middle. It has lots of speed, features and security for an affordable price. The menu and app give you as much control over your network as you want.
The Eero is super convenient and reliable for internet sharing, but you're better off going for a competing system that's cheaper and faster.
TP-Link created a router that's the complete package for an affordable price. The hardware performed really well and its range was surprising. With the Archer C3150 V2, you get all the bells and whistles, plus an easy-to-use web interface.
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.
The overall performance of this router was good, but it probably won't hold up to lots of devices in a large home. It does have bonus features, including link aggregation and security powered by Trend Micro, so you will get a lot of bang for your buck.
Netgear and NetDuma teamed up to create a gamer's delight inside a futuristic-looking router. The XR500's speed and range are more than enough for a medium-to-large home. The DumaOS interface has lots of customization options and helpful hints for even novice router users.
Unless you need the second-gen Eero’s enhanced range, we’d still recommend a competing mesh system or a standalone router instead.
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.
Geeks with deep pockets might love the X10, but the majority of home users will find it too expensive for their daily networking needs.
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.
If you want great coverage for your medium-size home, lots of customization options and top speeds on your router – all for around $200 – the Linksys EA8300 is the one you want.
