TRENDnet TEW-818DRU AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router, DD-WRT Open Source support

Pros: Easy setup. Lots of flexibility. Very fast. Great range for 2.4 GHz band

Cons: 5 GHz range not as good as 2.4 GHz

Other Thoughts: Just set this up to replace a D-Link DIR-655 router I was having issues with (range and general reliability). So far, I couldn't be happier. The setup was very easy. I configured a 2.4 GHz "n" network, a guest 2.4 GHz "n" network, and a 5 GHz "ac" network. Total setup time was still less than 10 mins. This came with a free linksys media bridge when I ordered it, and it took just a couple mins to setup using the WPS buttons. So far that is very stable and it made a noticeable difference in connection speed (I have a desktop plugged in to the media bridge now, will probably add a blu-ray in a bit).

As compared to my old router, the range on the 2.4 GHz network is very good. I have a 2-story house with a basement, the router being in the corner of the basement. Previously, I could not get a stable connection everywhere in my house. Now, using the 2.4 GHz band, there is a strong connection everywhere. The range on the 5 GHz band is not as good, and doesn't reach to the opposite side of the house on the 2nd story, but my media bridge is on the opposite side of the house on the first floor and the connection there is fine.

So far, I'm very happy with the purchase and it has made a big difference.
