Update: For our readers’ latest picks, head over to the 2018 post.

Our wireless router Co-Op came down to a final face-off between two reader favorites, but in the end, the ASUS RT-AC68U took over 2/3 of the vote to claim the title.

This router is simply the best working router I’ve had in years. I’m not even using a tenth of what it’s capable of, but the fact of the matter is it’s the first router I’ve had where I didn’t feel like I needed to power cycle once every couple weeks. - lordkilgar

I second this. And if you’re brave enough, you can install third party firmware to unlock even more advanced features. - jbatubara

I’d also like to add 1) guest wifi to keep guest devices segregated from your network and 2) Asus has a baked in dynamic dns feature which makes accessing home network remotely a lot easier if you don’t have a static ip. - wherewallaceatstring
