Routers and Exede ???

I run D-Link DL-614+ old router,so old that it have available date set-up ending at 2012, and tech at ViaSat said couple times 'it's your router'
so I bought DIR 601 yesterday, plugged in, and it was all day disaster,
calling Tech support somewhere in Philippines or India, listen to the script they read,
...router is stir crazy.
so I am sending it back
and plugging back my not so trusty DL-614+
should I look for newer?
which one?
preferably hard wired,
four/one
not cheap, but not expensive,
thank you kindly.

Anytime a switch in MAC address happens, its best to:

1. Power down existing MAC address of device being used (router/computer).

2. Wait one minute, then power down SB2 modem.

3. Power down all wired/wireless devices.

4. After say ten minutes, power up SB2 modem, and wait until all three lights are lit solid.

5. After all three lights are lit solid on SB2 modem, then power up new MAC address device (router), and wait until fourth light is lit solid.

6. After fourth light is lit solid, then power up other devices.

7. If still don't work, then same process above, but let 12 hours pass after powering down SB2 modem...from step two forward.
