Which gigabit AC router?

Post by balages74 » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:01 pm

Dear All,
Recently got 1000/200Mbit internet installed at home, but the supplier provided router is only bgn capable. I'd like to buy a reliable gigabit router with stable AC wifi, that does not reboot/disconnect etc all the time, but maintains a stable high-speed wifi connection (I know an AP would be enough, yet I prefer to buy a router). There are LOADs of options in the $150 range but also a lot of bad reviews of all. These I looked at more or less:
Netgear Nighthawk EX7000
Synology AC1900
D-Link DIR-890L
Linksys WRT1900ACS
TPLink C9
I dont expect to be able to fully utilize the gigabit connection thru WIFI, but I'd like to have a very stable and fast internet connection even thru wifi, no sudden disconnects, router reboots etc. Can you suggest here? I dont need to stick to one of the above, just to give you an idea of what I've been checking.
Thank you in advance,

I wouldn't touch the "Asus AC87U" - seen too many problems on forums in part due to odd "Quantenna chipset" - an experiment Asus seems to have moved on from.

1000/200 is going to be a challenge for any domestic device, suggest you look at small business/commercial solutions.
