I'm replacing a Netgear WNR1000v3 - N150 Wireless Router which I got in 2012 and performed fairly well until it suddenly DIED TODAY (unplugged to reset and on plugging it back in there were zero signs of life - no lights, no nothing) . Prior to that I had a Linksys which was a disaster so I feel comfortable staying with Netgear unless someone has a better recommendation. I have a limited budget and found a NETGEAR R6120-100NAS - AC1200 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router for around $55. Is this a comparable unit that will work for my relatively simple needs? I have an I-Mac Snow Leopard I believe it is and a Windows 8.1 Laptop, a wireless Canon Printer and a Kindle Reader. My internet service isn't the fastest but is satisfactory although the new carrier Spectrum has abysmal customer service.
My house is medium size - in summer I take my computer outside onto my patio a lot - the range on my old one seemed fine.
Anyway, I haven't the foggiest idea what I need. I don't do gaming hi-speed or anything. Will theNETGEAR R6120-100NAS - AC1200 Dual Band Wi-Fi Router
be reliable - opinions or recommendations appreciated please? I'm in a bit of a crunch for a new one as it is now I have my MAC connected via ethernet cable - My kindle which I've grown quite fond of isn't operable at all and I'd like to get something ASAP?
