Router for parents recommendations
It would be for a desktop, laptop, tablet, phone, Fire cube (TV), Ooma phone, possibly printer. Hardwired where possible (i.e. the Ooma, TVs, desktop and printer). Some other occasional devices from family or whatever. In a ~ 1500 sqft bungalow
Looking for dependability in particular, and also ease of use (particularly if I have to help over the phone or something lol). Don’t have a set budget, but cost conscious. They used a $20 Linksys E900 in the previous place, which in reality did fine. Maybe ones around $50 or so would be nice enough? But that’s not a limit to get something right.
Being able to turn on/off the wifi would be nice, but not sure if any readily have that feature. Guest feature possibly. Other features like being able to attach storage maybe would be nice but not sure they would get used and keeping simple has its pluses.
Not sure yet about location. Possibly with the fibre equipment in the basement would streamline and keep it out of the way. Possibly upstairs but would take up multiple runs, with then having a switch in the basement anyway. Another thought would be just a wired router (or just not use the wireless) and access point upstairs.
