Buy it on Amazon - (affiliate link) - Asus makes some of the best routers on the market and this one continues that lineage.

But do not be distracted by all of its antennas. This router, like some of its competitors, supports a new 4x4 1024 QAM mode that promises 2 gigabit per second theoretical wireless speeds. But the reality is that there isn't currently a laptop, tablet, or phone on the market that actually supports these new speeds. In fact many devices on the market are only first implementing AC wireless speeds that started popping up on routers two years ago! So if you have an 802.11ac router already and are not pleased with your wireless performance this one likely won't solve your problem. But if you are not yet currently on AC technology this will be an excellent entry point. Wireless AC devices will operate faster and more reliably on this router than they will on an older non-AC router. It's loaded with features and has plenty of RAM and processor power to support what it touts. It has 8 full gigabit ethernet ports as part of its built in switch and two of them can be link aggregated to support higher speed network attached storage devices. Of note is the traffic analysis feature that can identify not only the biggest consumers of bandwidth on your network but also what it is they're doing while consuming it. It can also sort traffic logs based on specific applications (Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, etc) across all devices. It also has a simplified traffic prioritization (QOS) feature to allow games,streaming media, voice over IP, etc. to take a higher priority on the network for lower latency. These priorities can be set by a simple point and click interface or configured manually. It also has an OpenVPN server for connecting to a network remotely as well as a client to link two remote networks together. Its USB 3.0 port is faster than prior Asus routers and is suitable for light file sharing. I was able to use its USB 2.0 port as a fallback for my main internet connection by having it seamlessly shift to a cellular modem when the main connection went down. I could go on but this is really the cream of the crop for enthusiast routers. Having looked at a lot of them over the last year or so this one really is the best one out there at the moment.
