I'm switching to Plusnet fibre from O2. I am going to buy my own router for the best wireless experience. Inevitably, the Asus RT-N66U seems highly recommended and I am pretty close to buying it. However, would I not be bet better off buying an AC router such as the D Link AC1750, especially considering the similar price? http://www.amazon.co.uk/D-Link-Wireless-AC1750-Dual-...
Isn't it better to 'future proof' now. Afterall, I wont be changing the router for probably 5 years if history is anything to go by!
The DLink seems to have very favourable reviews and most of the features of the Asus. Are there any prominent features missing that are done well on the Asus. Will the higher power not mean I'd get better wireless performance on G/N?
I'll be attaching a USB drive quite often to the router, video viewing across various devices, Netflix/iPlayer most of the day (we dont use TV so much), gaming and of course torrents. 2 computers, 2 tablets, playstation, WDTV, 4+ smartphones. These are all used regularly by 4-8 people. The router will need to serve 2 terrace houses (that are actually converted to one) and it will be placed upstairs, because that's where the master socket comes in and it's handily out the way.
Any input would be appreciated! I need to buy it within the next 2 weeks.
