Wireless AC is the way to go. I bought a TMO branded Asus router on ebay a month ago for around $75 shipped. I usually have 30-40 Wireless devices connected to it at all times.

Don't be mistaken...this is NOT Wireless AC. Asus has some kind of confusing names, so there is a RT-N66U (this deal) and a RT-AC66U. Realistically there isn't a lot of difference unless you're running AC devices, but you're not getting true AC from this deal. Also, I see NEW AC66U go on after-rebate sales at Frys almost weekly for only a little more than this, so I don't consider this a hot deal for a refurb especially since it's also the old model.

It's free for me after a coupon, still had to pay $3.75 for tax, but earned $3 eBay bucks back. This router got good reviews on amazon [amazon.com].

It's the peak speed you can get in the 5 GHz band, and a feature called MU-MIMO. With AC theoretical speeds can be up to 1.3 Gbps and MU-MIMO is helpful when you have lots of devices active at the same time fighting for bandwidth..

Assuming you have client hardware to match. Have to upgrade both sides of the wireless connection. Just sayin...

Reviews for refurbished one on Newegg are pretty bad.

I have two of these and they are good.

Factory firmware is OK, but Merlin's software improves on it.

The wired is very fast, and has great throughput.

Dual band means the router supports both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. This is important for backwards comparability (b/g/n)

note 802.11n can run on 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz.

AC is 5Ghz only, and is higher bandwidth, and higher bandwidth for concurrent users.

AC dual band routers are usually then backwards compatible with b/g/n.

And this router is 802.11n.

This is a great router for 802.11n, and with Merlin's software update it is even better. If the majority of the clients in a home are wired, and if it isn't a big house and there are not many wifi clients streaming HD data then it works great.

No idea why people would pay $50 for a refurbished N router when you get AC routers for same or a little bit more. Like the Netgear AC1750 R6300v2 which has also custom firmware support.

I would much rather get a Asus T-Mobile cellspot router. If you don't mind getting a gently used item they are as low as $45:

Much better router for the price

Why would anyone spend $50 for a non-AC router? And a refurbished one at that?
