    Ruckus or netgear. If its for a business then netgear has a lifetime warranty.

    How big of a location are you trying to cover? I've been starting to use the Ubiquiti UniFi line. Allows for meshed wireless (roaming between APs seamlessly) I've deployed about 10 set ups for clients and use it at home.

    Haven't seen anyone mention this as yet, but personally would recommend the Netgear nighthawk x8 ac 5300. Bit pricey but worth it.

    I had two Night Hawks and two Asus I eventually ended up with a Apple Airport Extreme. My house is 4 side brick and I get great coverage from the Basement go up.

    Is there something to help make the signal strong if its weak in certain areas? Or do I have to upgrade my router? It is currently in my room upstairs and in the basement and living room the signal is weak.

    either a router that can cover a wider area, or you could look into an access points, or power line adapters is an option - they have some pretty decent ones out there.
