Hi, I have to take a router but I don't know which one to choose, you would need gigabits, dual band lan ports, 2.5ghz minimum 450Mbps and 5Ghz minimum 1Gbps, unimportant usb port and a lot of antenna power.
I arrived at 6 router and I don't know which one to choose, can you help me please?
I can't find the range of action, the square meters, the power or the dbm of the antennas of the various routers.

I personally prefer Asus and Netgear routers, maybe D-Link/Linksys... I've had to replace a couple of TP-Link switches in the past so I can't vouch for their reliability. I don't have much experience with Tenda.

Asus offers mesh with their newer models (you can mix and match routers), seems D-Link has it now as well. This is a good thing if you have a larger place and you may need a second router at some point.

Generally you want a newer model, as the hardware will be more capable, and it will have modern firmware/administration features. I am sure most of those would work fine.
