Rick's Picks: A quality D-Link Router for $49.99

It says it's $59.99, but available right now for $49.99.

My pick, when it comes to routers.. D-Link.

The D-Link AC1200.

The high-gain antennas will give you exceptional coverage in and around your home.The Dual Band technology eliminates all latency. Use the 2.4 GHz band for everyday tasks, while leaving the high-speed 5 GHz AC band free for HD video streaming, online gaming and large file transfers. With fewer devices using the high-speed 5 GHz band, there's less interference and congestion, giving you better performance and a lag-free wireless experience.

Intelligent QoS Intelligent QoS tracks the type of network traffic (media streaming, web surfing, online gaming) and decide which application deserves higher priority.. The AC1200 is fast. As fast as some routers in the $300-400 range.

It will cover your entire home.
