I recently switched from Fios to Comcast (Both Gigabit), and Comcast's default modem/router fucking blows. I had replaced it with a Netgear nighthawk 6700v2, but due to the fact that Netgear's default firmware makes IPv6 a fairly awful experience, I'm returning it and moving on. I have no issue going with another Netgear, but I'll have to flash one of the open WRT firmwares. I have no problem with this, so I'm willing to put in the effort. I'm mostly concerned with the 4K fireTV and smart TV being downstairs (front of house) while the router will be upstairs (back of house), I'll be streaming 4K netflix and uh... downloaded files, through the desktop with Plex. I'm planning on eventually adding an external drive to the router as a network media drive, so a USB 3.0 port would be helpful. This is a 2 floor apartment with basement & backyard. Full coverage would be ideal Budget: As low as humanly possible. Under $125 preferred, maybe $150 tops. Willing to buy refurb or Amazon open box to save money. Because of this, I'd really prefer something that will last me for 4-5 years or until obsolete, whatever comes first. I've been looking at the TP-Link Archer C9, D-Link DIR-882, Netgear 6300, 6400 & 7000 (refurb), Trendnet TEW-824DRU or TEW-828DRU, or the Asus AC66/68U. My devices: 1 wired desktop (mine) 1 wireless desktop (that I may convert to wired) 1 laptop 4 tablets 3 phones 1 4K FireTV 1 Roku 1 home theater receiver (upcoming) 1 4K smart TV (upcoming) 2-3 Echo Dots controlling a bunch of home automation shit Thanks in advance for the help, guys!
