Default Best wireless routers right now?

I'm thinking about upgrading my FiOS Internet service while discontinuing the TV service, given our family's lack of TV watching through the set-top box (made even worse when our local CBS station was cut by Frontier in a carrier dispute, and hasn't been resolved since, and my mom tends to watch CBS to watch 'The Bold and the Beautiful', either through antenna because of it, or through the CBS app). However, I'm considering about using another router rather than Frontier's own, given the $10/month fee just to rent one. (I already read articles/posts on how to switch from a Frontier/Verizon-provided FiOS router to a router of our choice, as long as the ONT is switched properly from coax to ethernet output, which would be recommended if TV service isn't used.)

Hey, Babu; welcome!
Not that kind of router...This forum is for woodworking routers, that is, an electrical tool.

Buuuut...having said that, if you can live without broadcast TV, and you have a smart TV (4K etc.) getting your entertainment via the Ethernet is great! We recently hooked up, and I use a hardwired system all the way from our internet provider; I won't allow wifi in our house (the precautionary principle!)
We recently upgraded the router to an EDGEROUTER X and couldn't be happier. I had our IT guy install it and he admitted that it really needed a bit more expertise than the average person has, to install it properly. There are a lot of unique features.

Be aware however that you will need unlimited data as part of your ISP package. Watching TV and movies uses a lot of data.

Try a Linksys EA9500, excellent throughput lots of security, I have over 20 devices using Wifi in my house anywhere from Smart TVs to Alexa to an XBox also my Surround Sound Receivers. I do a lot of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video streaming with no dropouts.

But my Triton and Bosh Routers have the best throughput of all my Routers combined.

I'm not sure that the Linksys EA9500, as nice as it is with such a dizzying array of wicked looking shark fin antennas... can be truly considered wireless, since at minimum it requires a continuous 12VDC power supply, and a CAT6 hardwired Ethernet cable connection, in order to function or do anything at all.




On the other hand, if you are looking for a truly and totally wireless router, I picked one of these up the other day...



This thing works with no wires connected whatsoever. A truly wireless router.

I also have a truly wireless router in the form for a Ridgid 18V Router.

There are wires between the battery and motor. Don’t they count? Not having a cord can be handy.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
