I need a wireless router that will maintain a continuous connection, consistently, and last for several years. I teach online, and lose money if I get disconnected. My connection is to a Chinese company that has developed a proprietary platform with a conferencing classroom that is similar to using Skype. The student and I can see and talk to each other online. Which brand / model can I expect to be most reliable for at least two years, and hopefully more?

Hi
Because we have Comcast, we have to use one of their approved routers. We are leaning toward the TP-Link Archer CR700 but also are interested in using a mesh system to ensure complete coverage over all 3 levels of our house. Can we use the TP-Link Archer router with a mesh system? What else would we need to purchase along with the router to make it a mesh system? Thanks.

Hello
I need some valid suggestion in selecting router. Since Nov. 2016, I am using TL-WR841N, which is working quite good but the only issue is coverage. It is not covering my entire flat( no idea about the area of the flat). So, now I would like to know is it a good choice to switch to NET GEAR wnr2000. ? and PLEASE guide me the practical experienced pros and cons of both routers..?

I need to buy a router. I know for sure that Netgear N750 will work for me. Will Netgear AC1750 work for me as well? Please advise.

A:
Yes and if you could afford the difference in cost I would recommend the Ac1750 over the N750 as you'll get better coverage and a better range of areas you're trying to use WiFi in.
