300-500$ Best router at the moment?

Most important is wifi range, stability and security.

They are all way fast for me.

Seems like all the ones i check, netgear, asus, sinology there is someone telling it's not stable.

So far i'm looking at Asus AC3100 and Synology RT2600ac

Thanks :) :) :)

You want an access point not a router, just need to pair it with as witch

Ubiquiti

  is probably the way to go there

Then you can probably just turn off the wireless part and use it as a switch for the access point.

If you just need to extend the range of the wifi it'll be fine to just use an extender/repeater.

Consumer routers are all basically crap compared to just using something like a ubiquiti access point.

Unless you have something gigabit or better probably not

I would have to run cables to access points right? The wifi from the router isnt going that far at the moment and running cables in here would be a real pain

You could keep it right next to the old router, the access point just needs power over Ethernet, doesn't use a typical AC adapter.
 

This might have some info

Because data sent over the electrical wiring of the house

Your thinking of Power line adapters. They are not the same of POE. Power over Ethernet just injects power in to the Ethernet cable to power the device in this case a Ubiqutiy AP. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

If i had a bit more budget for this and time to set it up i would certainly quit all in one routers, looks really more serious.

I have the Synology RT2600 AC, its worked great, but for $200 it should. I also live in a two story house, but only 1300 Sq Ft. So the WiFi signal penetrates well, BUT I also have the modem and router in my room on the second floor, so thats why I get great signal everywhere. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

If you are willing to replace it's firmware with OpenWRT, how about you use the Xiaomi Mi 3G as an access point?

While it won't be the same level as a corporate router, it should outperform most consumer routers on the market (even expensive ones) that don't go beyond 1200Mbts (300Mbts on 2.4Ghz N, and 866Mbts on 5Ghz N and AC).

Especially since it's price is only ~$40-60.
