I have started looking at wireless routers, because I want to access my network with my iPhone and laptops.

In doing some research and found that 802.11n is currently the best, but that 802.11ac will be much faster and that the first 11ac routers just hit the market.

Of the 802.11n routers I have looked at, I feel that the WD My Net N900 HD Dual-Band Router might be the best bet for me, since it was designed specifically to accelerate movies, video and gaming, which I want.


It is the 802.11ac routers that seem more complex. First there is the issue of range, which seems like it might be less then the 11n routers, but they are much faster.

The other issue is that the 'Wifi Certified' testing won't begin till early next year, which means that these first 802.11ac routers are not Wifi Certified.

The Newest 802.11ac Routers Don

The WD N900 802.11n router is great, but I feel it is best to wait on 802.11ac till the Wifi Certified routers come out.

Should I wait till early next year to buy a Wifi Certifed 802.11ac router?

Should I get the WD N900 11n router now?
