Re: [Northeast] Replacement router recommendations for 150/65 &
After lots of reading lots of reviews and comparisons, I decided to try out the Asus RT-N66R.
So far, it is great! In my living room on wifi, where I previously got 45/35 from the Actiontec, I now get 106/67 from the speedtest.verizon.net/fios300 and 147/51 from a speedtest.net internet server in NYC.
I also like having dual band as there are 7 other Actiontec routers from neighbors (small cul-de-sac where it seems everyone has Fios) so being able to connect on 5 Ghz avoids a lot of interference since the three strongest signals I pick up that aren't mine are on channels 1, 11, and 6 - leaving little room for me.
