This router received 4.2 out of 5 stars based on 393 customer reviews. It features dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz technology to make file streaming smoother, and the Smart Wi-Fi lets you take control of your network remotely. This model features beamforming, which means the router will directly identify and connect with other devices.

You can add protective filtering and restrict access to certain websites to safeguard and monitor connected game consoles, tablets, and the like. You'll also get a one-year warranty.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - The cost of this router is within a nickel of the lowest price ever, and this deal is already out of stock at the stores that price-matched it. Keep that in mind if you're deliberating.
  • Things to know before you buy! - If you're upgrading your router, you may want to upgrade your modem as well. The best-selling modem on Amazon is also really close to its best price ever.
