That's an impossible set of questions to answer.

 

What does "kicking off" mean? The TV loses the wifi link? Something else?

 

Is it the TV that loses the Internet? Maybe that is the problem rather than the router.

 

How fast is your Internet service? Too slow and any router will have a hard time.

 

Any router should fill the bill, but not if the Internet is too slow.

 

To pick a router, try plugging your needs into the filters on the product pages:

 

Wireless Routers for Home | NETGEAR

 

and

 

Orbi: Whole Home WiFi System for Better WiFi Everywhere | NETGEAR

 

Then check back here for reports on the things you are considering, but remember that people turn up in this community with problems, not compliments. So look at reviews on Amazon, for example.

 

An alternative to wifi could be Powerline Ethernet. This uses the house's electricity circuit as an Ethernet network. It can be more reliable and easier to set up than wifi on Smart TVs.

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
