  • Are you looking for the best wireless router?

  • In this video, we will top wireless routers on the market.

  • Before we get started with our video detailing the best wireless routers, we have included

  • links in the description for each product mentioned, so make sure you check those out

  • to see which is in your budget range.

  • Starting off at number 1 we have the TP-Link Archer C2300.

  • The TP-Link Archer C2300 has a deceptively mild-mannered design, but don't be fooled

  • it's one of the most powerful routers you can buy.

  • It's the reigning performance champ, pumping out nearly a gigabit per second of data in

  • our standard performance tests, and blasting through walls and ceilings with ease.

  • Not only is the Archer C2300 the fastest router we've seen, but it's also small, unobtrusive

  • and full of high-end features.

  • The Archer C2300 comes with built-in optimization tools, like antivirus, QoS and parental controls

  • that are normally found on more expensive competitors.

  • It's price point is typically less than half of what similarly performing competitors

  • cost, and is backed by a two year warranty.

  • The TP-Link Archer C2300 is simply the best Wi-Fi router you can buy today.

  • At number 2 we have the Netgear Orbi.

  • There are plenty of mesh routers on the market to blanket your home with Wi-Fi, but our hands-down

  • favorite is the Netgear Orbi.

  • A single Orbi unit alone provides some of the best performance we've seen in a router,

  • and with additional satellite units, you can cover a 5,000-square-foot home with seamless

  • connectivity and phenomenal performance.

  • The speedy Orbi delivers one of the easiest setup processes we've seen, and the combination

  • of smartphone and desktop tools make it easy to manage your network from anywhere, including

  • curfew times and content controls for parents.

  • And newer add-ons let you expand in more ways than one, with weatherproof outdoor satellite

  • units and an Alexa-equipped unit that doubles as a smart speaker.

  • If you've got a big home, the Orbi is the best Wi-Fi router for you.

  • At number 3 we have the TP-Link Archer A7.

  • The TP-Link Archer A7 is the best Wi-Fi router for those on a budget, delivering very good

  • 802.11ac performance and a surprising number of features for less than $60.

  • The Archer A7 has great performance for the pricepushing through more data than most

  • of the comparably priced routers we've testedand features four Gigabit LAN ports and

  • a USB 2.0 port for connecting devices.

  • In addition to solid performance and features, the Archer A7 also has a very easy setup process

  • and useful parental controls, with an app that lets you monitor and control network

  • use from anywhere.

  • It's the best value Wi-Fi router we've tested this year.

  • At number 4 we have the Netgear Nighthawk AC2300.

  • It might be priced like a high-performance or gaming router, but the Netgear Nighthawk

  • AC2300 (RS400) delivers in a different (and perhaps more important) area: Cybersecurity.

  • The RS400 may deliver solid performance and enough range to cover most homes, but the

  • real value is protection, with a fistful of security features from Netgear and Bitdefender,

  • including three years of protection from Bitdefender Total Security software.

  • The RS400 is built to safeguard your entire connected home, from your laptops and phones

  • to a whole range of smart devices, from TVs to ovens, thermostats and doorbell cameras.

  • With so many devices on today's home network, you have to be more vigilant, as a single

  • poorly secured gadget can open you up to hackers and malware.

  • The RS400 keeps your whole home safe, and is easy to set up and manage, too, making

  • it our favorite cybersecurity router.

  • At number 5 we have the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000.

  • The first router we've tested that features the new Wi-Fi 6 specification, the Asus ROG

  • Rapture GT-AX11000 is a gamer's delight, with speed that improves over longer range, low

  • latency and all the features that gamers expect.

  • Add it all up and most other gaming routers are now second best.

  • The GT-AX11000 is large, with a gargantuan base, eight swiveling antennas, and massive

  • 10.8Gbps maximum throughput.

  • This router has connectivity in droves, thanks to its tri-band design and four downstream

  • Gigabit LAN ports, a single 2.5G Base T Ethernet connection, and two USB 3.0 ports.

  • Built in customization and gaming-oriented optimizations provide plenty of control, and

  • you can even pair it with other Asus routers for mesh networking to cover a larger home.

  • At $450, it is expensive, but this is the best Wi-Fi router for gamers wanting an edge

  • online.

  • At number 6 we have the TP-Link Archer C5400X.

  • The TP-Link Archer C5400X is the gaming router to beat, with some of the best performance

  • you'll see in any home networking device.

  • It offers best-in-class tri-band performance with impressive coverage, delivering 1Gbps

  • over its 2.4GHz band and 2.167Gbps over each of its two 5GHz channels.

  • The 8-antenna design and red-on-black color scheme are sure to turn heads, but the real

  • selling point is the collection of optimization and security features that will satisfy any

  • power user.

  • With bandwidth-allocation controls to let you use the massive throughput as you wish,

  • this router puts incredible performance into the user's hands, for gaming or anything else.

  • At number 7 we have the Linksys EA8300 Max Stream.

  • For a truly customizable router, we recommend the Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream, which is not

  • only a great tri-band router, it's also loaded with tools to tweak and customize your router

  • for optimal performance.

  • The small black EA8300 Max-Stream can move lots of data, though it will do best in smaller

  • homes.

  • But even with shorter range, it offers impressive performance for a router that sells for less

  • than $200.

  • Whether you're allocating bandwidth to prioritize gaming or media streaming, or just setting

  • up parental controls, you can automate many features, make manual adjustments on the fly,

  • and monitor itall from your desktop or smartphone.

  • With so many ways to customize your router's performance, the Linksys EA8300 Max Stream

  • is an easy pick for the power user.

  • And at number 8 we have the Ubiquiti UniFi AC Pro Wireless Access Point.

  • Ubiquiti's UniFi line of access points bridge the gap between consumer products and professional

  • enterprise solutions.

  • This type of product is for the enthusiast that isn't happy with what traditional home

  • Wi-Fi solutions offer.

  • If you're serious about providing a high quality network that is robust, the UniFi line is

  • currently the best option on the market.

  • Although each unit sells for around $130, you'll need some extra hardware to get up

  • and running.

  • Traditional home Wi-Fi solutions are actually 3 products combined into one box.

  • They consist of a router, a switch, and an access point.

  • Since the UniFi is just an access point, you'll need to provide your own router and switch.

  • This can be as simple as a $20 commodity switch and a $60 router, but you'll need to take

  • this into account when designing your system.

  • If you're the type of customer even looking for products in this category though, you

  • should be fine with the network configuration.

  • Another thing you'll need is a PoE injector since enterprise APs don't have dedicated

  • power inputs.

  • Depending on what package you purchase, an injector may be included with your AP, but

  • they come cheap either way.

  • So that sums up the top wireless routers.

  • We hope you enjoyed.

  • Until next time have a great day.
