New router.

Posted 28 July 2012 - 06:18 AM

Hey guys. It's Father's day coming up, and since my dad's router is starting to play up (Constantly disconnecting, signal is poor), I've decided I'm going to buy him a fancy new router. Personally, I don't know a whole lot about networking hardware, so what would you guys suggest? We live in a 2 story house, and all rooms that will be using the WiFi are in close proximity. I'm looking to spend no more than $250 on a router.

Any help will be awesome. Thanks guys.

I would look into Ubiquiti.

You can build it out to include networked cameras, sensors, remote power management, and the works.

A little pricey, but works like a dream.

This seems like a good idea, but honestly, it can't be in anyway tricky, as I'm not going to be here forever, and I know that Dad won't be able to upkeep something like that. Lol. Would Linksys router's be good for home use?

Those are all optional. It's pretty well plug and play, and add more units to expand as you will.

How would you guys rate this router? I've looked at it for a while, but I'm not sure.
