Modern equipment comparable to my old WNDR3700

I am in the market for a new router/modem for my cable service.  I used to have a netgear WNDR3700 I LOVED IT.  it had great range for my 2 story house.  


What is the modern day equivalent?


Any help will be appreciated. 


Thank you,

Re: Modern equipment comparable to my old WNDR3700

Are you looking for a modem and a seperate router or a combo device?

you'll usually see people recommending buying them seperate on here.


There's many factors for what you want in a router. 

What size is the 2 story home? 

What are the interior walls made of? 

Are you looking for a AX system or AC system? 

How fast of internet speeds do you have? 

How many devices are you using and what are you using them for (streaming/gaming/etc)?

Are you looking for a mesh system or a single router solution? 

And even budget impacts it. Its pointless for us to recommend a $300 router if your budget is $100

Current setup: CM2000-> RBE973S-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
