Dual-band Wireless Routers

The router has come a long way in such a short space of time. Where it was once an expensive addition to a network, external to the modem and offering very little to the home user, it’s now the most used item of technology we own.
David Hayward tests six dual-band wireless routers this week and tries to see which are worth your cash.

Editor Choice: Netgear DGND3700 N600

In the end, that Netgear DGND3700 N600 comes out on top. It has everything you could ask for from a single box, including a built-in ADSL modem and other networking features.

Highly Recommend: Netgear Nighthawk R7000

Although it’s the most expensive router on test, the Netgear Nighthawk is by far one of the most impressive routers we’ve tested in quite a while.

The only downsides are the price and the front USB 3.0 port. Perhaps the next version will keep everything around the back of the unit?
