You have to make sure at least some of your devices support dual band wireless to take advantage of it. It's not a standard feature.

I assume you're looking for up-to N and not AC?

Also, like someone mentioned do you have multiple devices that can benefit from the 5 GHz frequency?

If yes then here's what I found off amazon around $50~$80.

TP Link TL WDR4300 [$77]
D-Link N600 DIR-826L [$54] (The N750 Model is $75)

WNDR3400 N600 FE [$75]

N450 [$50]
N600 [$60]

E2500 [$80]

I've had an ok time with D-Link and Linksys. But, I hate how D-Link with their new routers push their SW to access network drives.

I personally own a Netgear ATM, however I have an AC router. Specifically this one:

Haven't had issues with it since. But I bought this cause I wanted something that'll last for a couple of years.

Belkin is a buy at your own discretion. I've never owned one, but I've heard some bad stories/reviews. I think that was with their older stuff though, so I don't know about now.

Never buy a Belkin. I have the Netgear N600 (WNDR3400) with 10-12 devices connected at any given time and it seems to handle it. The range is also really good. It's upstairs towards the back of the house and still manages to make it downstairs, out the garage, and down the driveway.
