New recommendation: do not touch purchasing anything that looks or smells like 'a rooooter' until black friday/ xmas 2019! Or, later. Yes, we all know this is obvious, but in the light of no new articles, advice, or recommendations on this best router site, someone has to post it. For those for whom this is cryptic, lots of new stuff, and cheaper stuff will be released this year. What the smart money is doing: wait till something big like the next macbook with wifi6, then buy into new router or AP tech. 'Nuff said, really!
