    I have a Netgear R6250 802.11ac Wireless Router --- for the last 3 years or so, and so far so good.

    I have AT&T here, and speed is fast enough for me and wife... so we just deal with it.
    It is this slow speed all the time.... but steady...

    I own Asus RT-AC68U it's good router. Management panel is intuitive yet powerful (feels like dd-WRT), hadn't had any problems with it no need for restarts etc. rock solid. Also Asus releases quite regular firmware updates.

    I'm currently using a Netgear R7000 AC1900 Nighthawk with DD-WRT, I have the Linksys EA6900 and the ASUS RT-AC68U/R (Best Buy model) as well. ASUS software is good but not as good as the Merlin modified ASUS firmware which is also available for the Netgear R7000.

    About 5 month ago, I went to a fiber net ISP - well pleased. I am using a WRT1900AC (I think they have an even newer model out now) from Linksys. This router has software that allows me to monitor my network from my iPhone. Has been extremely reliable and the distance and range are the best I have ever had...and that is at least 6 routers. Have streaming on the 5GHz and the 2.4GHYz is for everything else. Easy setup even thought I used manual rather than the automatic setup and linking. Rock Solid!

    I generally use Netgear, currently have the R6300. It has been a great router, with 7 PCs, 6 phones and 6 TVs all running through it, not a bit of lag or problem. Our WiFi gets 866mbps down to 300mbps depending on adapter. Has everything we need. But the main thing I love about Netgear is their support. When the ACs first came out, it was a bit confusing, and they were great, quick and listened to what the actual problems were. Very responsive.

    I would recommend them to anyone.

    OMG, the last Belkin Router I had, I had to return it. It would not work out of the box.
    I had Belkin replaced 2 times for free, but wifi still had problems, so I got Linksys instead, works like a charm.

    Same here. For such a cheap router, it does a lot, it even has IPv6 support, which most routers lack.

    Same one I got for at least last 3, or 4 years, think its 4 years. No problems, don't use WiFi thou, everything is hard wired. also never have updated the firmware, after reading of different problems AFTER updating the firmware, so I've just left it alone. :)

    The biggest downfall with the RT-AC66U is that the USB speeds to an external drive are horrible. Why not USB 3.0 - best throughput I got was 1Mb and that is slower than USB 1.0 specs. Hope a next firmware will correct this. It is however one of the best routers I have had if I talk about features out of the box.

    I think that is the reason lots of people use the Merlin modified stock ASUS firmware as ASUS actually borrows from his changes as well.
