Remember the good old days when shopping for a Wi-Fi router just meant heading down to your local best buy and picking up one of those little blue Linksys routers? Well, Linksys still makes great products but there are tons of other options out there and you really need to think about your priorities before you purchase a new router. For example, is price your only concern? If you live in a small apartment and all you do is use your phone and stream a little Netflix, there are some great options out there for as little as $12.99. But if you really plan to push your home network to its limits and speed is your top priority, check out the TP-LINK AC5400 Wireless Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router, which is discounted on Amazon until Saturday, August 27.
