We’re often asked, “What’s the best AC router to buy”? Well, that’s not such a simple question and doesn’t have such a simple answer. But the guys over at MaximumPC thought they’d tackle the question and look at the best 802.11ac routers on the market.
Their results can be found here. What do they like? The Netgear R7000 Nighthawk, Asus RT-AC66U and Buffalo WZR-1750DHP all tied for first place. They’re all pretty solid devices.
One thing that we’re disappointed with though. In all of the ratings, no mention of security. Security should be a very important aspect of choosing a router.
