  1. Whether you're gaming, streaming, or just surfing the web, you can always benefit from having a faster connection, and if you're itching to upgrade TechSpot's Best of Routers is a great place to start.

    Having that said, in our Best Of feature we have an ultra-budget listing that for $30 offers serviceable routing, limited configuration options and feature set, with good wireless performance and coverage for the price point. The TP-Link TL-WR841N is just $25, which gets you single-band N300 routing.

    This week however we came across a discount on the Linksys N600+ dual-band router. Currently being sold for just $37.99, it adds 4 gigabit ethernet ports and simultaneous dual band for a stronger connection at a wider range. Other basic features include one USB 2.0 port, guest access, parental controls, and device prioritization features.

    While it certainly won't compete with $100+ routers, the Linksys N600+ at this price point certainly beats what you can normally get for less than $40.

    It has everything most people would ever need right now and the price is nothing to be scoffed at either.

    Buy two and a two pack of powerline adapters for $100 combined. It will offer better range then any router out there and just as good performance unless you use two behemoth routers 10 ft from one another to pass files to each other...then again the N600 gigabit ports would still outperform that.
