What's the best Wireless router I can get for under $400?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
As the title suggests, I'm looking for a wireless router that costs under or up to $400 that is really good.

I was looking at the:

Asus AC2400 RT-AC87U

Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900

Linksys WRT1900AC

Not sure which one to pick out of these three, this will be for an office environment.

I vote this one, had a good review at Toms Hardware.

Asus RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900

ASUS RT-AC87R Wireless-AC2400 Dual Band Gigabit Router

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MPI5N7U/ref=asc_df_B00MPI5N7U3696660?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=mysimon-pc03-20&linkCode=df0&creative=395093&creativeASIN=B00MPI5N7U

This is listed as the best router of 2015, looks pretty good from all the reviews.


EDIT: If your only choices was the ones you listed, i guess the ASUS one.

Thanks looks like it's between the two ASUS models.

Do you have any other requirements for the office environment? I'd advocate against using a cheap consumer grade router if you want to do anything vaguely correctly in a professional deployment.

Anything special on the network? What is the speed of your connection?

It's mostly going to be used for Mortgage banking programs that are connected to the internet, and of course daily emails back and forth. Nothing too intense. Just it seems the system has begun to show its age and thus needs replacement along with a speed upgrade from the ISP.

Don't waste your money on the inferior Asus branded routers.
