Moving out, need Wifi

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First of all, excited to be a part of the forum! This will be my first post.

 

Anyway, I recently leased a house and will be moving in about a week. It's a two story about 1300 sqft. house, and I am letting my family keep my previous router as a repeater.

I am paying Spectrum for Gigabit Internet, so those are the speeds I'm expecting, and I want to know what some good suggestions for a wifi router would be.

 

I'm looking for overall good, rather than value for my dollar mostly... But I'm aware some things (Wifi 6, and google fiber expanding in my city) might cause me to re-upgrade sooner rather than later. So any overall advice would be appreciated!

Don't expect those speeds over wifi... more realistically you will get 1/2 - 3/4 of those at most.

Do you have ethernet in the walls?

 - Yes? A few APs at key locations would be best.
 - No? Probably Mesh then.

I'm definitely aware there will be a speed drop over Wifi, not expecting or looking for a wifi router that can replicate that.

I'm betting on needing multiple access points, maybe two. I am looking to buy one router to see how well that handles the house and buy a second if needed. For now, I'm just looking for a good, reliable, future-proof-ish device.

The Netgear Mesh is one of the best ive seen since they use dedicated bands to talk with each other and not over the 2.4ghz network as most current mesh networks do, like the Orbi.
