Best router for ~$150?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, haven't been on the forums for quite some time. I'm not really knowledgeable on tech lately. I have a two story house and with lots of walls. I want to try to get the best signal possible for others in my house. The router will be placed downstairs. I'm also looking for a decent wireless receiver. Thanks thumb.gif

I don't think it's out quite yet, but you won't find ac wifi anywhere else for $100.

It' actually a kickstarter router

Skydog is too.

These may seem like they're... err, off the beaten path, but it's worth a look.

The routers I recommended were 300 mbps 2.4 450 mbps 5ghz.

With your new price range you can get n900 or wndr4500 from net gear,tplink,Linksys.

At 450mbps on 2.4 and 5

A lot of 802.ac routers which would provide more speed and range, seem to sell around 200 new. I look around some more, but maybe buying a better router refurbished
