If you haven’t upgraded your home wireless network to 802.11ac yet today’s a pretty good day to do it. Best Buy is selling a Linksys AC1750 WiFi router for $50, which is just half its normal price.
This router gets pretty strong reviews, supports 2.4 GHz and 5GHz connections, and has 6 antennas. It should offer better range and speed than any 802.11n router on the market and it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than those newfangled “whole home” mesh-networking systems, which are only really necessary if you’re trying to cover a pretty large area.
