Which Netgear Router

Black Friday is almost here and I want to buy a router. Wirecutter.com says get the Netgear r7000p. I’ve heard Netgear makes some good stuff, so I checked them out and holy crap do they make a lot of routers that all seem the same.

My budget is around $180 or less, unless going up another $20 gives me something ground breaking. I’m replacing a TP Link TL-WDR3600 which is already, but requires reboots all too often, especially during big downloads and is a little unreliable in some sections of my house. It sits in the middle of the 2nd floor of a 3 story house that is 20 ft wide, 50 ft long and in the suburbs. I’m a light gamer and I’ve got kids that are always streaming video. My main 4K tv is wired in (not on WiFi).

Any thoughts on a good router at the moment? Thanks.

Re: Which Netgear Router

If i had to choose a single router solution, I'd either go with an R7800 renewed. 

If I was thinking possible mesh, I'd be looking at the RBK43 renewed. 

 

either system is pretty rock solid. A bit out of the price range but worth it IMO.
