i had this. it was a decent router.

if you can spend a bit more i'd suggest either the Asus 68u or the TP link OnHub. both can be had for under $100 refurbished if you want for a newegg/ebay sale.

I have the 68u and its miles better then this router.

this router may not be an improvement over what Rogers provides.

Also, i find TP link quite fast to stop updating the firmware on their devices. If you are picky (and paranoid), this will force you to change router every few years.

Do I care?
Routers with only FE (10/100) LAN ports are useless. You are bottlenecked by that port more than anything. I usually pay another $10 to get GE (10/100/1000) router.

What model would you recommend for a bit more?

If you want to run a VPN client on the router, you may want to stick to routers that can run 3rd party firmware such as DD-WRT, Tomato, or OpenWRT.

VPN needs horsepower.

Look for a router with dual core CPU 1ghz or faster (better) like Asus AC68u/ ac1900 refurb mention earlier,

I bought two of these routers before with gift card I received. It's really good router with wide coverage. Only problem is speed not great. If you use 100M internet or above, forget it.

Unlikely at this price - check out the TP-Link website or call them.

Seems so, but you can see for yourself:
https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/emulators

Update 1: Oh sorry. I don't know if there's an app, but since you can use any web browser to log into the router, I don't see the need for an app.

Update 2: For Android, there is an app for both C20 and C59:

Lots of one star reviews. 21MB. Better to stick with a browser, in my opinion.
Sorry, I don't Apple ;) .
