This AC1750 router has 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios to serve all your devices, and it has the performance to handle a standard household and family.
The R7000P offers AC2300 speeds across the two radios, ideal for large homes with plenty of users. It's equipped with LAN and USB ports, and beamforming helps with range.
This Wi-Fi 5 router offers theoretical speeds up to 300Mbps and 700Mbps on 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios, ideal for smaller spaces and few users with light work.
This gaming router hits blistering AC2600 speeds across 2.4GHz, and 5GHz radios and tailored QoS ensures your gaming PC or console receives the best speed.
The Orbi can cover up to 5,000 square feet and offers combined tri-band speeds up to AC3000. Dedicated backhaul and LAN ports offer mesh flexibility.
Want Wi-Fi 6 performance AND a mesh network? This pack includes router and satellite, good for 3,000 square feet, and wireless speeds more than 100Mbps.
If we're making a suggestion
These are both great routers for the average household, though the latter is likely going to be better for many users thanks to higher theoretical AC2300 speeds across 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios. As long as your house isn't packed with people all vying for streaming and gaming bandwidth, these routers should be sufficient and won't break the bank.
If you're interested in upgrading to Wi-Fi 6, something like Netgear's Nighthawk AX8 makes a lot of sense. It's expensive, but it'll set you up for the future as more and more devices move to the latest standard.
