I'm in a 1Bedroom apartment now and the router is dead center so my coverage is awesome throughout.
Thanks for the link. I'm still tied to renting a cable model from my ISP. Maybe I feel more "secure" that away, but so far I haven't any issues with it.
FYI for everyone else,
First router: Linksys E1000 = Older technology, single band. Very reliable, no disconnects. I've had this for like 12 years. I did have to buy an extender for my current house.
Second router: TP-Link AC1200 = Dual Band Router. Everything connected, but I got constant disconnects. I've had this for less than three months. This purchase was a mistake. When I finally decided to return it, it was outside Amazon's window of return.
Current router: Netgear AC1750 R6400 = See original post. This appears to be a mistake as well. I need to look into Best Buy's return policy on opened items.
This track record sucks. And it's getting expensive.
