Google Wifi | Netgear Nighthawk AC1750

In the end, the contest for our readers’ favorite routers wasn’t much of a contest at all. Google Wifi trounced NETGEAR’s Orbi in the mesh category, but NETGEAR got its revenge in the traditional router discipline, as its Nighthawk AC1750 trounced the Portal router by over an 80-20 margin.


As always, the best router for you will depend on a variety of factors, but these are two great options to start your search.
