I'm looking for a router/access point for our second floor. We have a primary router in the basement, and I'm going to pass a cable upstairs and connect it to this new router/AP I want to get. It's going to be dead-center in an open area; thus, it needs to [i]look[/i] good. Something like [url=http://www.amazon.ca/D-Link-Wireless-N600-Dual-Band-Gigabit-DIR-826L/dp/B0081TXJ28/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1394572876&sr=1-2&keywords=router]this[/url] or [url=http://www.amazon.ca/TP-Link-TL-WR720N-150Mbps-Wireless-2-4-2-5GHz/dp/B00ES9H4L2/ref=pd_sim_sbs_pc_24?ie=UTF8&refRID=038ZGQ5XEN0KQJ5Y6EP0]this[/url]. Essentially, something that has a sense of style without antennas sticking out of it. N300, please. The amount of ports doesn't matter, so as long as it has a single WAN port: it's only going to be accessed wirelessly. And of course, it has to actually be a good-rated router. Preferably between 20-35$? Any suggestions?
I know that there are many Apple haters, but I have so far enjoyed my Airport Extreme. I haven't had to do anything to maintain it, nor has it crashed or anything. I've been able to extend its range with two Airport Expresses.
I don't mean to hate but you can't ask for good equipment and only want to pay $20-35. The D-link is quite good.
I think Asus make routers, have a look on their site.
