    Default Help with deciding on a wireless router

    Ok, so it seems that in general, a lot of wireless routers suck. They seem to like to randomly drop the wireless at times. I've had bad luck with Cisco/linksys with any USB stick I've gotten and my TP-Link dsl modem/router works ok but likes to drop the wireless every once in a while. Right now, one of the best user reviewed routers I can find is a Trendnet TEW-733GR. What do you guys think are the most stable routers? I want gigabit and I'm trying to stay around the $50 price range. Wireless N300 is fine too but I'll go higher if the price is right.

    I still have a tew 633 that I retired last year but it did well for about 3-4 years and gave me wireless across the street at about 100 ft through our front wall grandma's front wall and a couple of internal walls too, good enough to stream at least. Trendnet are OK in my book. Replaced it with an asus, OK too but $$$$

    I got a Netgear Dual Band N600 router from WalMart for 55 bucks. It works great, and I got it cheap since it was an open box. It worked right out of the box, and I saved good money off of the $90.00 regular price.

    Check Newegg too,.....HERE is one of their deals.

    I have been using a Asus RT-AC66U for about a year now and no problems at all. Expensive but works. And the GUI is great.
