    Hi all.

    Its been some years since I read and update my home networking devices. Currently have a RT-N66U that has been working great. No issues with it since i got it, but the coverage in my house is too poor.

    5 wired into the N66U via switches.
    4 sonos devices using 2.4 GHz network.
    Several phones, laptops, ipads etc using a combination.
    AppleTV and Chromecast using 2.4Ghz (poor connection).
    R66U customized with vpn, QoS and static ip's. Just the way I like it.
    Not AC devices

    Some devices in my livingroom, Chromecast, AppleTV and Sonos devices have bad network. Dropping streams and sound. Mobile devices works well.

    Is AIMesh working good? What is a good starting router for AImesh? That I can continue to expand in the future? Shoul I consider a complete OOTB solution like the Tenda system?

    Budget is around 200-300$. I prefer to spend money now, and have a good network for years.
