    Best wireless ap/router for Gigabit internet

    I’m looking to upgrade our internet speeds and wondering what wireless router or AP would be best for streaming? I want to be able to stream 5-6 TV’s at the same time… I also want to be able to have multiple SSID’s and be able to prioritize anything connected to specific SSID’s. Thanks!

    Check internet connection...

    I’m working on an application that checks if your internet connection is up and running or if it has temporarily dropped. what do you think the best method for checking is? Should I check several protocols like http, ftp, etc??? Will just a ping suffice? im open to any recommendations! Thanks.
