Your Wi-Fi router is the unsung hero holding your home network together. And, in 2020, there is a growing number of new wireless router options out there, especially when so many of them are more affordable now. That means people who are looking for a router upgrade this year will finally have a better chance to find a perfect one for themselves. So, we’ve tested every high-ranked Wi-Fi router on the market in order to give you the best insight. Read on for our list of the best Wi-Fi routers that boost your internet connection.
Now, you can upgrade to a Wi-Fi 6 router to get faster and more efficient Wi-Fi performance on your devices at a really good price (only $280). In case you don’t know it yet, Wi-Fi 6 is the newest generation of wireless network that’s much faster than its predecessors.
The Archer AX6000 basically aced the performance tests, delivering the fastest transfer speeds we’ve ever seen. Plus, with an excellent range and low latency, I’m sure this model is perfect for all users. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi 6 does not support older models like iPhone X or older. If you still stick with these models, this router does not do anything to boost the Wi-Fi speed.
If you need a new wireless router that significantly increases your internet speed but don’t want to spend too much money for it, the D-Link DIR-867 is the way to go.
You can get strong Wifi performance at a steady speed for just $110 or less with this router. In fact, of all the routers we’ve tested, the D-Link DIR-867 was the fastest on the 2.4GHz frequency band. Besides, this Wi-Fi router also beats out several competitors that cost way more on the 5GHz ban.
Although the D-Link DIR-867 isn’t the best Wifi router at large range, it’s best suited for small places like an apartment. Also, keep in mind that there is a new D-Link lineup for 2020, including Wi-Fi 6 models starting at $120.
With fast wireless speed, simple setup, and easy-to-use app controls, the Nest Wifi AC2200 is our top mesh router pick this year.
Because it’s the second-gen, the Nest Wifi is faster and more affordable now. Plus, with a new design that comes in many colors, the Nest Wifi is made to stand out in the open, where they perform the best.
Despite the lack of Wi-Fi 6 support, Google does add in a couple of nice upgrades, including support for new WPA3 security standards and 4X4 MU-MIMO connections. That means this router can provide faster speed to devices that use multiple Wi-Fi antennas.
All of that helps the Nest Wifi AC2200 outperform most mesh routers with similar specs on the market. For a $269 price tag for a Wi-Fi that can cover up to 3,800 square feet, you really don’t want to miss this deal!
That is our 3 best Wi-Fi routers in 2020. Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
