I need to replace an old wireless router. Any recommendations on what brand, model, etc.? I don't think i need ac, a wireless n, dual band version with good range should be fine. Should i just shop by price, or does the brand matter that much when it comes to reliability & range? thanks

What router do you have now and what do you need the new one to do? Do you need one that talks to DSL, Cable, or just to a ISP provided DSL/Cable modem?
Some routers do have a lot more range than others so how important is range?

I'm replacing an older belkin mod. F5D 7230, 802.11b & g, hooked to an adsl modem. I have at&t dsl service & yes range is important. I'm not a gamer, and i don't stream a lot of movies.

If it's just AT&T DSL and not AT&T U-Verse service then you can replace both the modem and the router and stop paying AT&T for it. I've used a lot of these
and they have really good range and are easy to set up and I've never had one fail.
Otherwise, I'd get a basic wireless router from Amazon or someone else with a good return policy. Something with one or more antenna as they seem to have better range. Something like this:
NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless Router (WNR1000-100NAS (G54/N150))

I don't have u-verse, just dsl service. I don't pay at&t for a modem, i have my own, a TP-LINK TD-8817 it works fine & was inexpensive. I just need to replace my ancient router.
