I just moved into a new place and now I need a router, I am looking at some refurbished ones from cisco (linksys). The three I am looking at right now are the E900, the E1500, and the E2500 . My apartment isn't very big so range isn't a huge issue and right now I'm pretty sure that my phone is the only device I have with 5GHz capability. Tell me what you would get, one of these or another.

I'd future proof and get a dual band AC. It will cost a lot more than those you have listed but will should meet your needs for the next 4-5 years.

I would love to but I can't afford something that expensive, I was looking for something less than $40 at most

based on that then I'd say get the E2500 since it will give you some dual band connectivity.

or get a $50 AC router in the future when you actually have devices that support that speed wink.gif

All the routers op posted only have 100mbps, which is no problem if you don't do a lot of lan transfers.

You live in an apartment so I guess there would be a lot 2.4ghz devices in the vicinity. I would get a dual band router just for that.
This is what I would get.

If you don't need dual-band, these are some better cheap options.

All support gigabit Ethernet, usb ports, which is useful for printer and file sharing and 300mbps.

I am going with the E900, its half the price of everything else, there is one other wifi network in the building, and I can't justify the extra cost of the others
