Which AC router should I buy?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking into purchasing a new wireless router, and the features of the new AC routers seem pretty nice with the high transfer rates over wifi. Just curious which one you guys who have one would recommend smile.gif

Check SmallNetBuilder, and then make your decision based on price/performance etc...

YMMV on routers, some people have great experience with router XYZ and some don't. Some will say router ABC is trash and router DEF is better. Quality control always seemed to be an issue with routers.
