Upgrade Router for Streaming?
i notice when watching things on showbox it can get a bit choppy, which i'd like to improve upon.
would i benefit from upgrading to an AC router and buying a chromecast v2 (which is AC capable)? or would i get more bang for my buck and improved performance just buying a faster N router and keeping my chromecast v1? or, won't it even matter because streaming to 1 tv doesn't even exceed what my current router can handle anyway?
i don't know much about routers. from what i understand, N is in the 2.5ghz range whereas AC is in the 5ghz range which is less used and more "quiet" with less interference. not sure if that will help me or not.
if AC is the best route, is there anything to look out for when buying? speed, features, etc? ideally i'd like to spend <$80.
thank you for any advice.
