I've been researching wireless routers as my current Cisco (rebranded Linksys) is getting quirky. As long as I was doing the research anyway, I decided to make a Page out of the results. If you are also in the market for a wireless router I hope you find this useful.
I am not presenting these in any particular order. All of them are very good and have received great reviews from a variety of magazines and blogs. I stuck with N routers that can do 300Mpbs but there are less expensive versions of most of these that top out at 150Mpbs. I have used Amazon pricing for a sample price.
Model: Linksys E1200 Price: $49.00 Blurb: N router, 300Mbps, MIMO antennae.
Model: Netgear N600 Price: $79.96 Blurb: 600Mbps(two 300Mpbs streams), great for video, broadband usage meter is very cool.
Model: ASUS (RT-N16) Wireless N 300 Price: $89.95 Blurb: Expensive but feature-rich, great antenna array, great security, lots of functions
Model: Netgear N300 RangeMax Price: $65.88 Blurb: 300Mbps, great range, can share USB devices, very good security
Model: Linksys Maximum Performance Dual-Band N900 V2 Price: $199.99 Blurb: Very expensive, multiple radios, great range, USB sharing, built-in media server, lots more.
If had the budget for it I would buy the Linksys N900 V2 as it does just about everything and does it very well. But, I can't quite rationalize $200 for a router on my budget. I have settled on the NetGear N300 RangeMax as it has the features I need most and the extra range that I want.
I hope you found this useful and please add your own comments about what you feel might be the best N router on the market or just a quick review of any of these.
