Regardless of brand, price, single or dual band, etc. I just want the most rock solid, reliable, always connect, always maintain throughput, good range and coverage, wireless N router.
I've been using for quite a while a Cisco small business wired router (which has been great) and a Buffalo wireless router in WAP mode hung off the Cisco. The Buffalo has good range and throughput but has always been unreliable in passing through and resolving ip addresses (in contrast to my previous Linksys WAP54G that was flawless.)
Router died in the storm on Friday, so I'm intending to get a new wireless router to replace both the Cisco and Buffalo (using the Buffalo as a router right now and I still don't like it.)
I guess my initial thought is to get a Linksys E4200 V2 but I'd certainly like to hear other recommendations. Major brands only,. TPLInk, Trendent etc need not apply. Don't think I want another Buffalo, and don't want a Belkin.
Cisco, Netgear, Asus, Sonic Wall, Hawking, DLink, ZyXel etc would be fine.
I DON'T use the wireless for streaming media , by the way, just for all the myriad wireless devices in the house (laptops, tablets, camera, phones, weather station, clock radio, iPod, etc.) I just want something with which I don't need to be figuring out why something connected yesterday just fine but for some reason today won't.
