Need a good router

#1aPCplayerPosted 9/27/2013 9:39:54 AM
My internet was going really slow so I decided to unplug my Netgear router and plug back in the power to reset it. when I tried to plug the power cord back in, the router did not light up at all and I think the reason my internet was going so slow is because it was on its deathbed. I'm going to head up to BestBuy in a minute and buy a new router but I'm never going to buy a Netgear again. Any good brands I should take a look at? What brand router do you have and do you like it? I was thinking about trying to buy an Asus router if they have one in stock.

I have a Linksys and it's pretty solid. Cisco products in general tend to be.

Should I get a pretty high end Cisco router then? Does anybody have feedback on an Asus router since I love all their PC components they make.

I'm certainly no expert but I believe 802.11n is still the current standard. 802.11ac is supposed to be much faster but is still in the draft stage plus a lot of current devices won't be compatible with it. That said, most ac routers will probably support the n standard so such a router would still work for you but would probably be more expensive than you would need to pay.
